  1. Unfortunately I misplaced the access details of an older Processwire website that requires some maintenance as I lost the notes with custom acess url, username and password. I have access to the hosting server and the database. Is there a way to find the login URL and reset the password? Your help is much appreciated!
  2. Thanks for your help and feedback @teppo . The warnings do not interfere with the functionality of the site, but I will consider to update the ProcessWire version as soon as a find some time.
  3. Following your feedback, I was able to get it fixed with the following permissions @teppo : # Reset ownership to my sudo user sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /var/www/example.com/public_html # Make www-data the owning group of /site/assets sudo chown -R $USER:www-data /var/www/example.com/public_html/site/assets/ # Give recursively 664 permission to all files within the /site/assets folder find /var/www/example.com/public_html/site/assets/ -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \; # Give recursively 775 permission to all directories within the /site/assets folder find /var/www/example.com/public_html/site/assets/ -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \; User and group can now write files AND directories within /site/assets while the rest of the installation is only owned by my user. I am the only user of this VPS. I am not getting an error message in the backend any longer when saving and publishing a page change, which now works fine. However, the following error persists on page save: Notice: A non well formed numeric value encountered in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/modules/Inputfield/InputfieldFile/InputfieldFile.module on line 124 I also get this, when visiting the modules page in the backend: Notice: A non well formed numeric value encountered in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/modules/Inputfield/InputfieldFile/InputfieldFile.module on line 124 Warning: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/modules/Inputfield/InputfieldFile/InputfieldFile.module on line 439 Warning: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/modules/Inputfield/InputfieldFile/InputfieldFile.module on line 148 That does not sound like a permission issue, but rather a problem or potential bug in the module that handles the inputfield for file uploads. Isn't that a ProcessWire core module? On the front-end I am not using any forms that would utilize a file upload field. So I assume this must relate to the standard image upload fields in the backend somewhere, where I did not make any modifications at all. The site is based on ProcessWire 3.0.32.
  4. Following your advice, I adjusted file ownership and permissions accordingly @teppo : sudo chown -R MyUser:www-data /var/www/example.com/public_html find /var/www/example.com/public_html/site/assets/ -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \; All pages are loading fine now... ? So I assume that would be a safe configuration to use, considering that only my sudo user and the Apache group now have write access to the files contained in site/assets/, correct? Edit: When trying to edit and save pages in the backend now, I am encountering a couple of interesting notifications / errors: Notice: A non well formed numeric value encountered in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/modules/Inputfield/InputfieldFile/InputfieldFile.module on line 124 Session: destinationPath is not writable
  5. As suggested, I created a test.php with the following content: <?php echo exec('whoami'); Probably as expected, the result is the following: www-data When I installed Debian, I created a new sudo user for security reasons, let's call him "MyUser" in this case, and assigned the ownership of the Processwire installation to that user: sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /var/www/example.com/public_html This is a convenient setup, because it allows me to quickly edit files via SFTP and Filezilla without getting a permission error. However, it seems to cause the permission issue now as all files / directories are assigned to owner "MyUser" and group "MyUser". So what would be the suggested way to give Apache the required permissions, keep convenient writing access via Filezilla for my sudo user and maintain a secure installation?
  6. Thanks for your feedback, @Edison. You were, right. Let's Encrypt created another virtual host file for port :443 to which I had to add the directory rules and restart the server: <Directory /var/www/example.com/public_html/> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Require all granted </Directory> So my links are working now. However, I am encountering another problem. Some pages are listed as blank. When I enable the debug mode, I get the following errors: Warning: file_put_contents(/var/www/example.com/public_html/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/AllInOneMinify/AllInOneMinify.module): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/core/FileCompiler.php on line 242 Warning: file_put_contents(/var/www/example.com/public_html/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/templates/_init.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/core/FileCompiler.php on line 242 Warning: file_put_contents(/var/www/example.com/public_html/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/templates/services.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/core/FileCompiler.php on line 242 Warning: file_put_contents(/var/www/example.com/public_html/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/templates/_func.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/example.com/public_html/wire/core/FileCompiler.php on line 242 Permissions for directories are set to 755 and for files to 644 in the Processwire installation. Any idea what could be wrong?
  7. Hey, I am trying to migrate a couple of Processwire sites from their respective, small VPS to a larger VPS on Digitalocean that will host all sites in the future. For that purposes, I installed a fresh droplet with Debian 10, Apache 2.4.38, PHP 7.3.4-2 and MariaDB 10.3.15. I created separate root directories for every site and a respective Virtual Host configuration file for each domain, for instance: sudo mkdir -p /var/www/example.com/public_html sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /var/www/example.com/public_html sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/example.com.conf The content of the Virtual Host configurations looks like this: <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName example.com ServerAlias www.example.com ServerAdmin admin@example.com DocumentRoot /var/www/example.com/public_html <Directory /var/www/example.com/public_html/> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Require all granted </Directory> ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined # This part seems to have been added by Let's Encrypt during SSL generation RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.example.com [OR] RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =example.com RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent] </VirtualHost> # vim: syntax=apache ts=4 sw=4 sts=4 sr noet I then enabled the configuration files and restarted Apache: sudo a2ensite example.com.conf sudo systemctl restart apache2 Mod_rewrite has then been enabled via the following: sudo a2enmod rewrite I migrated the first site and database to the new server and the homepage loads fine via https (both non-www and www versions are available although it should redirect automatically to www which does not work). However, any link you try to visit throws a 404 error: Not Found The requested URL /link/ was not found on this server. Apache/2.4.38 (Debian) Server at example.com Port 443 In order to test if the Processwire .htaccess file is detected, I added some random characters at top, which should break the site and throw a 500 error. However, nothing happens. It still loads the homepage and 404 errors for the subpages. .htaccess syntax checks out ok. What am I missing? Thanks for your feedback.
  8. Thanks for your feedback. Job pages are created using a front end form. In order to trash the old jobs, I ended up with the following code: $jobs = wire('pages')->find("template=job-template, parent=/expired-jobs/, include=unpublished"); foreach($jobs as $job) { $job->trash(); } Now, regarding the problem of adding a unique value to each job link, I guess I would have to update Processwire first in order to access the PageNames and WireRandom classes?
  9. Hey, I have a small niche job board that is based on ProcessWire 3.0.62 and encounter 2 problems: 1. Job pages are unpublished after a certain amount of time using a cron job and then moved as children to the "Expired Jobs" page. Now, it is a bit annoying having to delete those old, unpublished job pages individually. What is the best way to programmatically delete all children of the "Expired Jobs" page in one go using a protected template in the backend? 2. I am starting to get a problem with many similar job titles. Although, Processwire will add a number to the end of a link, when a certain job title already exists (e.g. My-Job-1, My-Job-2), this causes problems from time to time with the unpublishing process, for instance Can't save page 1997: /expired-jobs/product-designer-2/: Chosen parent '/expired-jobs/' already has a page named 'product-designer-2' What would be the best way to add a unique identifier to each link (e.g. combination of 6 or more random numbers and letters) to ensure unique links despite equal job titles? Thanks for your feedback.
  10.

  11. Hi, I am running ProcessWire 3.0.62 on a 512 MB VPS with CentOS 7.3.1611 x64. The site operates stable for a couple of days and then suddenly shuts down with an internel server error - 500. I first thought this might be a caching issue and I disabled mod_pagespeed, but the problem persists. I noticed the following errors in the ProcessWire log that match this timeframe: Error: Exception: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 2006 MySQL server has gone away (in /var/www/html/wire/core/WireDatabasePDO.php line 454) Error: Exception: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 2006 MySQL server has gone away (in /var/www/html/wire/core/PagesLoader.php line 1110) Error: Exception: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Connection refused (in /var/www/html/wire/core/ProcessWire.php line 377) Having a look at /var/log/httpd/error_log shows the following entries: [Mon Apr 30 03:36:02.299543 2018] [auth_digest:notice] [pid 835] AH01757: generating secret for digest authentication ...

If I reboot the server the site operates normally again. Would appreciate your assistance to find the problem. Thanks
  12. Can you now select and sort by publication date of a page? I am looking for something like: $pages->find("template=MyTemplate, limit=15, sort=-published"); The documentation does not seem to list "published" and only shows "created": http://cheatsheet.processwire.com/selectors/
  13. I am working on a site that needs a simple booking calendar: - Visitors can choose a date and time-slot from a calendar on the front-end. - Reservations will be listed in the back-end and have to be confirmed by the admin. - Once the reservation is confirmed, an email is sent to the visitor. Not sure if there is an existing module out there for not reinventing the wheel. Already had a look at the module section, but couldn't find anything stable so far. Would appreciate your ideas.
  14. Thanks for your responses. Yes @adrian, the idea to record and send search requests is unusual, but this will not be a high traffic site and there will be additional filters, who can access the search function. To summarize your input: 1. Search: As @Robin S mentioned, can I use a simple GET request to handle the search terms from the form and then process input in a single search template (search.php)? I.e. Get search terms -> sanitize input -> save input to variables -> create PHPMailer object and send input variables -> Show search results on the front-end ? 2. Database Design: I had a closer look at the car example of kongondo's post on "Approaches to categorizing site content", i.e. simple multiple categories. So the objective is to have typical search requests like this: "Show me all red, second-hand vans from Toyota with Diesel engine built in 2012 with a price below 15.000 EUR." Instead of adding the required fields directly to my car-template.php, I would create pages with sub-pages as attribute categories and sub-categories in the tree, which will then be referenced in my car-template.php as Page Fieldtypes, correct? I assume this keeps the attributes more manageable if further sub-categories need to be added in the future? So I would probably have a tree view similar like this: - Cars (car-template.php) -> this is where new vehicles will be added - Make -- Toyota -- Volkswagen -- BMW ... - Year -- 2000 -- 2001 -- 2002 -- 2003 ... - Color -- Red -- White -- Blue ... - Fuel -- Gas -- Diesel -- Electric ... - Condition -- New -- Used - Gear -- Automatic -- Manual -- Semi-automatic - Body - Compact - Convertible - Coupe - Off-Road - Van ... - etc. ... Now, there will probably be a couple of fields that won't be directly categories, such as price, mileage, description, images. Price and mileage, however, should be searchable. I assume those can be added directly to car-template.php instead of creating individual pages? Would appreciate your feedback if this makes sense.
