Multi-site on shared cPanel host

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble getting a multi-site installation (I'll call them "site1" and "site2") working on a shared cPanel host.

The installation was working on my local hosting environment with two virtualhosts pointed at the same folder, allowing me to access both sites. On the cPanel server I'm wanting to use subdomains for both sites: site1.mydomain.com and site2.mydomain.com

So in my cPanel hosting I have site1.mydomain.com as the primary domain for the account, and I have added site2.mydomain.com as a cPanel domain Alias (I believe this was called a "Parked Domain" in previous versions of cPanel). Before I edit index.config.php to perform the redirect to site2 I am able to see site1 at both site1.mydomain.com and site2.mydomain.com. But after I edit index.config.php to redirect I get:

Internal Server Error. The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Maybe someone has experience with setting up a multi-site installation on cPanel. Is adding the domain for site2 as an alias/parked domain the right move? Something else I need to configure in cPanel?

I reset the database password for site2 (I don't think it was wrong but just starting the process of double-checking things) and now I'm able to access site2 without problem. Weird, not sure why a db password problem would cause a 500 Internal Server Error. But all working now so happy joy :)

      Hi there,
      I'm trying to have a multi-site (multiple databases) setup on a IIS (Microsoft) server.
      I know that IIS is not officially supported by ProcessWire but customer is insisting on IIS.
      I get an 500 Error when trying to access the sub-domain/other processwire site.
      Did somebody do this before or is it not possible at all to have a multi-site setup on IIS?
      Thanks

      Hi Everyone,
      I was playing around with the ProcessWire command-line script sitemap.sh (https://processwire.com/docs/front-end/include/)
      I currently have a multi-site setup (with separate databases).
      -> site
      -> site-other
      The sitemap works but it shows only the pages from the default site directory. How can I get the sitemap of the site-other directory?
      Here is my working code that prints the sitemap of 'site':
      #!/usr/bin/php <?php namespace ProcessWire; include("index.php"); // bootstrap ProcessWire function listPage($page, $level = 0) { echo str_repeat(" ", $level) . $page->title . "\n"; foreach($page->children as $child) { listPage($child, $level+1); } } listPage($pages->get("/")); // start at homepage I tried including index.config.php instead of index.php but that didn't help...

      Using ProcessWire's in-built multi-site support (option #1 here), is it possible to bootstrap the various sites? To bootstrap ProcessWire, the only requirement is to include /path/to/processwire/index.php/. In option #1, there is only one index.php. So, including index.php defaults to bootstrapping the main site (i.e. the site at /site/. Is it possible to bootstrap the other sites, i.e. site-dogs, site-cats, site-birds, etc? I've searched the forums but nothing relevant comes up.
      Thanks.

      Hi everyone,
      I am using ProcessWire to run a multi-site environment using the Multisite module by Soma.
      It's working great with one small caveat. It always defaults to the English version of the site. So when you access the base url (somedomain.com) it always redirects to somedomain.com/en/. In my particular case I need it to go to the Germany version somedomain.com/de/.
      Some things I've tried:
      I've tried fiddling around with the AutoDetectLanguage module to have a user redirected based on the detected browser language - didn't work. I've also tried messing with a module that changes what the default homepage is (smth like DefaultHomepage I believe), but that also had no affect. I used the Redirect module to have the root ('/') redirected to specific language URL ('/de/) - also didn't work My guess is that it has something to do with the default language in the setup which is set to english, but I am not sure.
      Has anyone else come accross this issue?
      Thanks in advance.

      Having a problem with a basic multi-site instance.
      The multi-sites are dynamically created and run as sub-domains and all is ok with them. They are created during a sign up process by end users.
      During the sign up process - once the new site & db has been created, I had planned to load the new site instance and add a new user to it, using code similar to this..
      $newSiteInstance = new ProcessWire($path, $newSiteUrl);   $u = $newSiteInstance->users->add($sitename); $u->pass = $pass; $u->email = $email; $u->addRole('content-viewer'); $x = $newSiteInstance->users->save($u);  This won't work in the registration script. It throws an error ... "SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found".
      However, if I halt the script, load the new site incognito/other browser, then continue the script, all works perfectly.
      So $newSiteInstance = new ProcessWire($path, $newSiteUrl); doesn't seem to work for me unless a site has already been loaded in a browser or instantiated somehow.
      I am missing something here ? Does a site need to be bootstrapped before new instance will work on it ? 
      Sorry, pretty new to this php/PW arena.  Having fun though
      Any ideas folks ?
