Re: Error while installing

Apologize for late reply, I will test this now and I will update you

Re: Error while installing

Hi, I checked on multiple instances and the problem is now gone. The Pull Request is now integrated in the master branch. I plan on doing a new alpha by the end of the week.

Re: Error while installing

There is a possible fix for this, could you test it out on your setup as well? I'll check it on mine before approving the Pull Request, but 2 checks is better than 1 

Re: Error while installing

Hi, I was able to verify on both PHP 7.3 and PHP 7.4, both with and without a database prefix. It's a bug I created an issue on github.

Re: Error while installing

Hi ! I try it for this time I remove the modification on the code but still it render the error message, If I try to apply again the modification the error message will disappear but still I can't use it..

Re: Error while installing

Hi, I see you are trying to connect to the database at, and the mysql server is on 'localhost'. I know those are equivalent in practice, but I've had issues before with MySQL that it treats them as 2 different things (in fact they are not the same). can you change -> localhost in your .env file and let me know if that solves the problem?

Error while installing

Hi ! I try to install ImpressCMS 2.0.0 Alpha but I can't run it.  I even try to directly indicate the username,password on Database provider however it just remove the error message and the functionality still can't be use.

php version : PHP 7.4.11

OS : Windows


(5th time installation)


- clone the repo

- run composer install 

- create a .env file (empty file)

- create database named impresscms

- go to /htdocs where it redirect to installation page

- setup database connection (default username and password on xampp) and I also select PDO Mysql

- I add the database name (impresscms) and change the prefix to empty

- setup account

- insert data to database (I get this message : All done. Took 5.5023s)

- install module (Message : Module System updated successfully.)


Now it seems the installation complete I go to impresscms/htdocs and it render the error message


Clicking multiple times a functionality return this (check image)

Now I solve this via modifying the code (check image)


After doing that the error for mysql will not appear anymore but still I can't use the login and the not found message still here..


Regards :)

Re: Reporting issues


you are correct, and I figured we would have broken the threshold to become a public project by now. It's something we don't have much power over, we need to have bug reports by invited hackers on Hackerone, and until now only a few reports have been coming in (and have been handled of course )

When it comes to security issues, please notify us on the security issues form. That way we can make sure the issue gets fixed before it is published online.

I'll update the on github as well, thanks for letting me know!

Reporting issues

Hi ! I want to report an issue however on the on Github mentions to report it on Hackerone but it seems to be private. 

Should I post the bug on Github instead?



Re: Chromium login issue fixed

Given the change, I don't think that's likely. We adapted the login page template to give another variable as redirect address, nothing more.

Re: Chromium login issue fixed

Could it have caused passwords to be expired? I had to reset mine to get logged in.

Profile module 2.3 rc for PHP7.3

I just finished making the necessary changes in the profile module to make it run under PHP 7.3.

The profile module offers an extended user management profile, with the ability to add custom forms to the user profile, have a registration workflow in multiple steps, and allow social interactions between users in groups called 'tribes'.

I would like to merge this version into the ImpressCMS core 1.4.1 distribution in a few days, so please test and let me know if you encounter any issues.


Re: Chromium login issue fixed

I spoke too soon earlier, because the fix I proposed did not work in every case (thanks @Mekdrop for investigating). The new fix is ok and is in the newly-released ImpressCMS 1.4.1 beta. Give it a spint and let me know if it works as expected!

iForum v2.1 beta released

It took me longer than expected to start working on it, but I finally did so. And the cleanup was easier than I would have thought : after just a few hours I can say that I have a beta release for iForum available that runs ImpressCMS 1.4 under PHP 7.2. If you are interested to test, the github release is here : 

I haven't touched the workings as of yet (I plan on doing that in iForum v3), simply ushered in a new era of PHP. Let me know if you find bugs on the Github issue tracker

Chromium login issue fixed

Hi, when you logged into the sites using a chromium-based browser (Chrome, new Edge, Brave, Opera, ...) , the redirection to a logged-in page wasn't working as it should have, and you got presented a nice, clean, but utterly white page

I fixed issue #100 a few minutes ago, and backported the fix directly on this site to improve your login experience.

Re: A project I've been putting off - ICMS 1.2.x to 1.3.x

iForum 2 is not compatible with PHP7, on top of that. I'm not sure if it is a worthwile time investment to try to patch iForum 2, given that it uses the Art framework instead of IPF. Potentially, many issues will also be in Art.

I want to re-do iForum in IPF, but that would be iForum 3, and would be PHP7 compatible

Re: A project I've been putting off - ICMS 1.2.x to 1.3.x

More results - iForum 1.0 Final also requires ImpressCMS 1.3+, while iForum 1.0 RC does not.

Re: impresscms info domain - keep or let go?

Luckily, the sale of the .org domain was halted by ICANN, but I get your point. With all the .sale and .store and other types of TLDs (there's even a .brussels - go figure), it becomes impossible to follow.

As a matter of fact, I was hoping on someone adopting it, but there wasn't much response on the forum. I'll make some more noice on social media and the upcoming newsletter.
