  1. Hello everyone! I'm just about finished developing my site on my localhost (MAMP) with ProcessWire and I'm wondering what I need to do to migrate my site off my local server onto my hosted server. I want to make sure I know all the steps before I start in case I miss something. The database name has changed as the server automatically names databases and users—they differ from ones I've originally created—so I'll need to change any instances of the database name and user. I'm guessing I modify the config.php file to match the new credentials. Is that it? Are there anymore instances I need to
  2. Hi, I have already tried in different ways and many times to migrate but I always have issues at the end. Here's what I have done so far: case 1: 1. Install PW on live server (all normal) 2. Import local DB into live DB 3. Front page site seems to work but I cannot login into admin page case 2 (I'm currently on this stage): 1. Copied all files from local to live server 2. Import local DB into live empty DB 3. Front page works, but any other page and admin page are 404 In both cases: - I have changed config.php info accordingl
  3. For some reason I can't login after migrating my site from local to live. I'm pretty sure it knows the password is good as when I enter a bad one I see "login failed', when I enter the correct one, it just seems to redirect me back to login. Has anyone else had the same problem? Thanks
  4. Hi, I must change server provider. I don't want rewtrite all page and articles, what must I do? I download a database copy on my pc, and now? Thanks!!
  5. Hi Guys, I'm trying to do my first migration to the customers existing server (IIS 10) . I ran the site as a subdirectory on my website for test purposes (everything works fine). Following the tutorial of Joss, I tryed the site on a local xampp server to make sure, it also works on a root directory. So far so good, everything works. Now I moved the files (from the xampp) to the customers server. The root/index page is shown but for every subpage i get 404 Errors... Hence I followed the troubleshooting guide for not working URLs: On the first sight, the .htaccess file is n
  6. I need an expert in processwire (ver.2.3.0) to help us change a website of a hosting, contact info@intuitiva.com.co
  7. I've got several Processwire websites running on a local server and an external server. With one of them I have the migration issue where anything but the homepage serves a 404 error. I've read pretty much all topics about the problem but can't seem to find a solution that works. Now in my situation, I request a new virtual domain (oisterwijk-cultuur.nl) for each website, and set an A record on our own domain (mallens-markhorst.nl). The end result: http://oisterwijk-cultuur.nl.mallens-markhorst.nl/ So far so good, but only the homepage works. Subpages and the admin URL generate a 404. Mo
  8. hey there, i stumbled about a pretty odd problem (at least i think it's odd). i was building a site on my local machine, everything worked just fine. after migrating the page to an actual server most of the parts still worked. only all of my childpages where gone. they are still available and editable in the backend but i can't access them in the browser. even the »view«-button is missing. i already had a similar issue while working local: the site is a multi-language site and is use a form to create the childpages via the api. but i could fix it by adding a dedicated status to the n
  9. SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'hortons.pages' doesn't exist (in /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/hortons/public/wire/core/WireDatabasePDO.php line 439) Getting this error after upgrading from 2.4 to 2.8 then exporting the site profile and installing on the latest version of v3. Anything I could do about this, anyone come across this? thanks Edit: The issues started going from 2.4 to 2.8 - I used the upgrading advice on the github, replacing PW files. Im running ubuntu 14.4.x using serverpilot.io. The site hosting was originally not controlled by me so
  10. I am in the process of upgrading an older PW website, say www.example.com. At new.example.com I have an upgraded version, but now the client needs to make content changes on the old site, like 15-20 pages added per day. How can I most easily move these pages over from the old site to new.example.com, when other people are already making new pages at new.example.com? Thanks!
  11. The situation I'm trying to arrive at a good solution for is how to store user-created data in a production environment. We're pre-production but the issue I'm running into is that storing user-data as pages creates problems when it comes time to update the production site with a new version (of our site, not PW). Because I'm adding data as pages the data will be deleted if I create a backup and restore it to the production environment. I've spent a fair amount of time writing some DB compare logic to find differences but that will require manual updating for each difference. Because page
  12. Hi, I've recently started on a team using Processwire, so Im quite new to it but I've had plenty of experience with Symfony2. We have an agency licence for the FormBuilder module and we want to use some sort of CI to deploy. When you first install FormBuilder module, it creates some new tables and requires some set up via a GUI including adding a licence key. We have looked into containing our licence key in a config file, then using some JSON files to sync to the database. This doesn't give us a lot of control and requires a fair bit of custom migrations. Is there a way to deploy a Pro
  13. I have a local install setup with PHP 5.6. Does anything different happen at install if running under 5.6 compared to 5.4? Our development server (where I am migrating the install to) is running 5.4 and I'm seemingly getting 500 errors (possibly .htaccess) when migrating the site. Any ideas?
  14. Hi Everyone, I made a site on localhost and after migrating I get blank screen on frontend and backend too. Tried with a fresh copy too and after installing it I got the same problem. During installation everything looks great. - Debug mode is true - Tried in subfolder and then in root too. - There are no messages in error log. - Sessions are created in site/assets/sessions/ -> I think it's not a permission related problem and processwire could be initialized - .htaccess is working Any hints what could be the problem? I've worked with several ProcessWire sites and I had no this is
  15. Hi, I read an article about Processwire in a Magazin and it sounds good. So i tested processwire and read a lot about it. Now I am sure that it is exactly what I was looking for my project. Currently, I use Drupal for my project, and before that I used WordPress. My Site has over 700 article and a lot of comments, other posttypes and (700) Users. Now my Problem is to migrate my Data from Drupal to Processwire. The articles were written by different users. The Comments were written by users and guasts. How can i Migrate my Porjekt without loosing to much information? I found this thr
  16. Hello there all! So I am excited to say that I am nearing the end of a monumental undertaking (for me at least). I have created a system to display an art galleries inventory to a fancy new processwire site, retiring a 6 year old frame based hand coded php site. I am finally in the process of moving into thier current server from my development server and am hitting a bit of a snag with my recently uploaded images. So last week a little birdy told me about using the pagefileExtendedPaths flag for sites that exceed a certain amount of directories as a way of speeding things up in the long run
  17. Hello, I have PW sites and I need to migrate to a new host; the host is requesting that I create a TAR backup of a site. I don't have experience with this. Can this be done? How would I begin? Thank you in advance, Dan
  18. I have a checkbox field that I need to split into two checkboxes. Currently, the single checkbox determines whether a badge appears next to an entry on the front end, but now that badge should only appear if both checkboxes are checked. So when I add the second checkbox, I'll need all the old pages that were created when there was only one checkbox to now have both checkboxes checked so that the badge appears based on the new template logic. Any suggestions that would be more efficient than manually going through and editing all the old pages by hand?
  19. I'm going to do the porting to a new server for a site with processwire. I wanted to know if I need to update the "userAuthSalt" in config.php and, if necessary, obtaining a new userAuthSalt. Thank u.
  20. Hey Everybody, As I was trying to move an exsisting site form my local dev (xampp) to a production server, the following error appeared: Error: session_start(): Failed to initialize storage module: user (path: /usr/local/www/services/.../data/tmp) (line 103 of /home/.../html/wire/core/Session.php) This error message was shown because /install.php still exists. Error has been logged. I searched the forum for help, but the only related topic I could find is this one: Problems with ProcessWire on Cloud Hosting https://processwire.com/talk/topic/5089-problems-with-processwire-on-cloud-ho
  21. Hi there, I installed PW here: new.mydomain.com Then I'll switch to www.mydomain.com I think all I have to do is copy all the files from "new" to root, isn't it? (I mean: there's no need to transfer DB, right?)
  22. I did a big beginner mistake. I've deleted MAMP PRO to use XAMPP and in the process of the uninstalation of MAMP PRO I deleted all my databases... Fortunately my projects are already live so I have a working copy on the FTP of my client. I would like to have all this data as it is online so it works local on my computer. This is working with a processwire CMS, the url is http://www.fem-k.com/ if in need... Please let me know how to solve this problem so I can go on playing with processwire on my computer. Thank you very much!!!
  23. Dear PWers, I'm currently moving a site from my local installation http://domain.local/ to a server subdirectory http://domain.com/temppath/ While moving mostly everything went well. Except one issue, maybe you could help me here: Every Textarea with a picture added to it (through TinyMCE and the Select Image button) is inserted with a full path (of course) like this: <img src="/site/assets/files/1/file.jpg"> So the only option for the current content to correct would be to search and replace inside the MySQL db to change "/site/assets/..." to "/temppath/site/assets/..." Maybe
  24. This morning I have been trying to copy my existing PW site to a new web root, as well as up one level in hierarchy (i.e. the old site was "fypnew/processwire" but the new site should be just "fyp"). I've copied the server files to the new location, edited the root level .htaccess file to point to /fyp/ as the new RewriteBase, and confirmed that the PW database user can still access the PW database (I am not planning on migrating the database location). I am getting the 500 error when loading the new location in my web browser. I am pretty sure the web server is reading the .htaccess file,
  25. Hi guys, sorry if this post crosses over somewhat with another of mine. I've just migrated a site to a new server and as I usually do, I transferred files and folders, exported and imported db and changed config.php. The issue is that the homepage loads up fine but any subsequent pages throw a 404 error. There is a UNIX error it gives me at the bottom of the page though mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/ Have any of you any idea what this may mean? I have tried using rewritebase as my current url does contain a "~" but alas no joy.
