Recommended Posts

Hello, i am new in the processwire. I tried to install pw in my server a few time but nothing happen. I saw a video on youtube how its installed but the las step was not finish. I tried two diferente versions, the 3.0.42 master version and the 2.8.35 legacy master version, even i tried to install the beginner page and the classic page but the result was the same. 

I take an screenshot of the last step.

Thanks for you time.

Hi @Alfonso Rodriguez.

Welcome to the forums and ProcessWire. Is this a remote site or on a local install? In your /site/config.php, set the following:

$config->debug = true;

That will show if there are any errors. Please note that the directive may show some information that is only intended for superusers. So, if you are on a remote/live site, I'd only show that to superusers. If that is your case, let us know so we can show you how to go about it

  • If you have debug on, do you see any errors? What do they say? 
  • Did you see any warnings (red) during the install Process? E.g. ProcessWire complaining about a requirement not being met
  • Is the frontend working?
  • What is your server environment like? PHP and Apache version? or a Windows environment?

There's a couple of topics around 'blank' screens but not sure which one applies in your case. Here's a couple:

Hi @kongondo

Its a remote site, with the 

$config->debug = true;

the installation process show me this. 

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home/sro/public_html/processwire-legacy/wire/modules/Process/ProcessPageEditImageSelect/ProcessPageEditImageSelect.module on line 168


By chance you have a suggestion of how to solve it.

That's PHP complaining that you do not have enough memory (you have 32MB). To be honest, I am a bit baffled by this since it is happening on install as opposed to during some image manipulation or similar process when editing a page. Other than increasing the memory size available to PHP, e.g. to 128MB, I am clueless. I'll let others more knowledgeable chime in. 

Edit: What's your server environment? You can now turn off that debug as well

      Could anyone advise me on the following system requirements, which I am missing for ProcessWire installation:
      DO (pdo_mysql) is required (for MySQL database)
      Fail: GD 2.0 or newer  Fail: JSON support ZipArchive support was not found. This is recommended, but not required to complete installation.

      I had upgraded my Apache configuration to include PHP7.2 and PHP7.3 for a Laravel-based script on the same server. Somehow it/I messed up a previously fine Processwire site, in a very confusing way.
      The site still looks fine, but editing template files has no effect whatsoever. It is stuck on some kind of cached version. I have already disabled PHP7's OPcache, cleared browser caches, etc, with no effect.
      The pages now apparently come from PW's assets/cache/FileCompiler folder, even though I never enabled template caching for this site.
      I have tried adding "namespace ProcessWire;" to the top of the homepage template file, but then I get this fatal error:
      My functions.php file pulls data in from another Processwire installation on the same VPS with the following line:
      $othersitedata = new ProcessWire('/home/myaccount/public_html/myothersite/site/', 'https://myothersite.com/'); That apparently still works fine; the site still displays data from the other installation, but via the "cached" template that I am now unable to change.
      I don't know where to start with this mess. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated. 
      Adding "$config->templateCompile = false;" to config.php results in the same fatal error as above.

      I have Processwire installed at my webhosting provider without any problems.
      Now I wanted to install it on my local webserver (MAMP 4.1) ...
      Unfortunately he shows me a database error that he can not find certain table !!!
