    I do the same as wbmnfktr. I also include a github action that auto ftp/pushes the updated files to a directory on my server that can be found here: https://github.com/SamKirkland/FTP-Deploy-Action

    Woah... that sounds nice.

    What about site/assets/sessions? Those seem to create permissions problems when moving to a server. Are these needed? or are these local to the current copy of the site.

    You can safely ignore them if necessary. They never caused any issues within my setups and environments so I never bothered to ignore them.


  2. I don't think it is necessary to start from scratch.

    Maybe you should ask your webhoster what they changed. Maybe their design-department was p*ssed and deleted/manipulated some files but I really can't imagine that - to be honest.

    I simple PHP change wouldn't cause such an issue - hence my thought about deleted/manipulated files.

    Updating/deleting the ProcessWireUpgrade module might already be enough as @BitPoet mentioned.

    It's strange your backend doesn't work at all.

    @dragan spotted a good isse as well - the install.php - but still...

    Where are you located (FR maybe?) - maybe we know someone somewhere around you who could assist here.

  3. ProcessWire 3.0.123 and PHP 7.2 play really nice together out of the box.
    An update or upgrade of ProcessWire therefore isn't needed actually.

    The downtime you experience might be another issue... either cached pages, a bunch of cached compiled files and modules... are there any errors in the frontend or in the logs (Setup > Logs) you could share with us? Is only the frontend or even the backend/admin area affected by those issues? Or maybe even better a link to your site.

    Oh... welcome to the best community in the world. 😉

  4. Sorry @alexmercenary I somehow missed your question.

    There is no hook or option in the module itself for this.

    You could somehow set an individual class to the body tag on certain pages and hide the whole banner with CSS.

    body.noCookies #cookie-manager {
    	display: none !important;
    /* OR */
    body.page-1234 #cookie-manager {
    	display: none !important;
    /* OR */
    body.tpl-basic-page #cookie-manager {
    	display: none !important;


  5. Straight from the ProcessWire .htaccess file:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_ADDR} !=
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_ADDR} !=::1
    RewriteRule ^ %{ENV:PROTO}://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

    That should work right away... are you using a real hosting account or something like Github pages or Netlify?

  6. Hi @gebeer,

    you are right - there is no detailed opt-in like Borlabs or Klaro have by now.

    I played with something like that in an experimental version of that plugin but it's far from ready to use - maybe a proof-of-concept maybe even less.

    For the time being I use the manage/opt-in/consent solution to let the user opt-in to allow cookies/scripts/trackers. They are all listed on the privacy page. Until the visitor gives its ok, I block everything - or better to say: I don't load anything until that point. 

    if (localStorage.getItem('pwcmbAllowCookies') === 'y') {
        // load Google Analytics
    	// load Matomo
    	// load whatever

    I have to add the detail that most of my clients don't use Google Analytics and weird tracking/post-view trackers anymore. They never looked into their analytics before and drop them now. They get their metrics from Google My Business, Bing Webmaster and in most cases that's all they need. Fair enough.

  7. Short note for all those who use this module.

    In a fresh install of ProcessWire 3.0.148 this module (yes, it's only officially support until 2.7 - but still) stopped working properly.

    Settings like skipping existing pages/entries will be ignored and the import into date fields is not possible at all.

    Last working environment I can confirm is ProcessWire 3.0.133.

  8. How could it be... it was silly me.

    There was actually a hook in a module that caused this issue(s). Or to be precise: the function caused it.

    Function that causes issues:

    public function getTotalRating($event) {
      $page = $event->arguments[0];
      if($page->template->name = "mediaSeries") {
      	// logic here

    Function that doesn't cause issues:

    public function getTotalRating($event) {
      $page = $event->arguments[0];
      if($page->template = "mediaSeries") {
      	// logic here

    Checking the template name wasn't a good idea.



  9. Today... after a short break over the holidays I started to work on a project again.

    I created templates, fields, and various other stuff... but once in a while there was a short alert after saving/changing things.
    I didn't pay much or any attention to it as it's common to see some alerts while changing, bending and breaking a system while setting up everything.

    But now... these alerts start to pop up everywhere.

    Tried to move the form-builder page in the page tree, tried to change a template, tried to install a module... in almost all cases of doing anything this alert shows up:

    ... has the system flag and you may not change its 'id' or 'name' fields.

    Right now I'm running:

    ProcessWire 3.0.147
    PHP 7.4.1 (I know this is bleeding edge - but still).
    OS: Linux (Manjaro)
    DB: MariaDB
    Profile: Multilanguage
    www-user: $user


    I wanted to install the PW Upgrade module via Autocomplete Module Class Name and manually but I can't as it always ends in the shown (screenshot) result above.

    Anyone an idea why this shows up (now)?
    The PHP 7.4.1 is running here for quite some time now (or at least there was no update in the last 2 weeks) and other instances didn't show the alert at all.

    Read/write permissions are fine. 
    No hooks, no weird modules, user roles or anything by now are implemented.

    Glicht? Hiccup? User-Machine-Disharmony?

    Are you referring to Vanilla Forums?

    Yes, I was referring to them. Back in the days when I used it, their project started to look unmaintained and kind of outdated.
    That was years(!) ago so it doesn't really matter anymore. But still... I was pleasantly surprised.

  11. That's weird.

    Clear all cached files - website cache and the compiled files.

    There must have been a change somewhere, maybe in a main settings of whatever.

    As @flydev says... enable that option and while you are doing this check the modified date of your files and folders within your web root.
