Recommended Posts

Not necessarily.

they're going faster now, so it _must be a script...

Help, folks! Specialists!

yes, I think this is not serious. They get votes in seconds. Remember: they have 212 members in their forum, mainly spoken in french (nearly no international).

about 20 min ago the script-kid stopped the work. Maybe this person realized that some people are wondering what's going on there...

Possible helpful trick - try and find people on Twitter that are into CMS and might like to help us along by voting and retweeting. For instance, CMSCritic very helpfully retweeted one of my tweets. What a nice chap!

You guys probably know more people than I do.

nono, he'll continue once we come up close...

yes, I suspect this. Since bitnami isn't able to check this the script-kid can do...

seems 'he' has reworked his script, to not get to much attention (lesser votes per minute, but keeping the lead)

I've sent this complaint to the organizers:

Hi, Bitnami team.

First of all thank you for your great service and the contest you conduct.
 

I'm one of the numerous members of ProcessWire CMS community, known there as slkwrm, and I want to ask you for a thorough review of the current contest results.

I don't want to be prejudicial about today's polls dynamics but they are plainly suspicious from the point that Ametys CMS has gained so much votes from yesterday.


If you compare our communities it becomes clear that Ametys's one is magnitude smaller than ProcessWire's (you can see here they have only 212 users registered on their forum with 2,024 totlal of posts), besides it's mainly French-speaking. Now ProcessWire has international community with at least 1,788 members and 52,284 posts. You can see the community is truly international if you come to Language Packs section where there are 17 translations at the moment submitted by community members (I made Russian translation).

My point is that Its very suspicious Ametys beats us in this contest as we tried very hard to spread the word about the contest and, as far as I know, Ryan, the creator of ProcessWire, even used mailing list to ask for support. So much effort has been made to win and it's all for nothing.

So if the contest boils down to how many clicks is registered, no matter how they've been done, then Ametys is a winner. But I believe the contests like yours are made to find the best CMSs and web-apps, so your users can benefit from being able to choose among really useful and high quality pieces of software with a strong and supportive community. I hope you will take into consideration all I've written above and the judgement will be fair.

Thank you once again.
 
Regards,
Alexander 'slkwrm' Pronin

and received this reply:

Hi Alexander,

Thanks for letting us know. We already checked the logs and we did not find anything suspicious. Note that the total application shares in Twitter, Facebook and G+ are similar to the shares of ProcessWire application. In any case we will continue checking votes.

Regards,
Beltran

I wasn't able to find @metis community at G+ and FB, only personal pages, their Twitter following 5 times smaller then ours, so this kind of reply makes me really sad. What do you think, guys?

Not worth the effort. I knew it the moment ametitis appeared.

Hi

I sent an email to bitnami as well 4 hours ago and received more or less a similar reply

Thanks for letting us know. We already checked the logs and we did not
find anything suspicious. Note that the total application shares in
Twitter, Facebook and G+ are similar to the shares of ProcessWire
application.

I sent another one showing the tweets on twitter that apeisa posted that were far more from processwire then received this reply

Yes thanks, but facebook or g+ shares are bigger in the Ametys CMS case.
Note that shares also count as a vote.

F*#k this contest. 

Since day 1 I am on this forum I have seen Processwire on the rise. Lately, not only people from modx are

coming in but people from other directions and fields as well. It is only a matter of time and pw will be there.

I voted this and other contests for PW!

Months ago, before I found processWire I would cast my vote on MODx which I think is still good yet ProcessWire simple API approach encouraged me to learn a bit more PHP.

      The Minimal Site works fine, but if I try to login as admin, I have no idea what the credentials are.
      I did not do the "install" process myself. The OVA came with everything set up, but there's no mention of the PW admin credentials being set to some initial value.
      Wondering if anyone else has tried the Bitnami OVA and if there's a simple answer.

      Hi,
      Currently I'm developing a platform and use Processwire for some of the backend. Everything is working very well on localhost, but the installation on namecheap does not complete. I've read some comments on this forum that mentioned hosting on namecheap (without mentioning issues). 
      Attached is a screenshot of the last step of the installation. It looks very similar to the problem mentioned in this thread: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15516-processwire-do-not-complete-installation/. Unfortunately, this didn't help me. I also attached a picture of the server. In the error_log, i do get some error messages related to includes and requires like:
      [18-Jun-2020 03:42:32 America/New_York] PHP Fatal error:  require(): Failed opening required '/home/niklcicr/public_html/wire/config.php' (include_path='.:/opt/alt/php56/usr/share/pear:/opt/alt/php56/usr/share/php') in /home/niklcicr/public_html/wire/core/ProcessWire.php on line 1199
      On the last screen, the console outputs a internal server error 500.
      That's what I tried: Installation on another server (freeinfinity) and it worked fine, installation on another namecheap account (did not work), and I adjusted the .htaccess file according to other threads in this forum that had similar problems (did not work).
      Is there anyone who got Processwire to work on namecheap hosting or can point me in the right direction? 
      Thanks in advance,
      Nik

      Hi, 
      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.    
    • By neosin
      During the install process I can never get to Step 4 for setting up an admin account.
      It creates the database and in the screen it shows it installed the database and imported the SQL
      and under that it shows "Profile Import" but nothing else.
      I have the same result with master & dev branch.
      I looked in the database and do not see a user table of any kind, unless it has some other name than "users"

      Hi everyone,
      I can't get my head around this, so maybe someone can help: I want to know how install the dev branch of processwire with composer.
      I use laragon and the "quick create" function and there you can run composer like this: "composer create-project processwire/processwire %s". OK, this is working, so I will get the master branch from it, but how about dev? I found some examples for laravel on this question, but no luck with it. Here some examples:
      composer create-project processwire/processwire %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev %s composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev %s --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev-master %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev-branch %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:@dev %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev and so on... Maybe someone got this already and would like to share?
