That's interesting to know. Versio (a Dutch/Belgian provider) switched almost 2 years ago from Installatron to the softaculous integration inside DirectAdmin, which is the admin panel they use. The reason they gave was that installatron was too behind with updates.
Both Installatron and Softaculous mention on their site that they have integration with Plesk. But perhaps there are other such scripts for plex that I don't know about. Probably even
The different providers I have worked with recently are using Plesk for their site administration and they have a different platform for installs. They do provide upgrade packages for applications you have installed.
There are many hosting providers, so what hosting are you using and what is your experience running ImpressCMS on that host? Does the hosting option provide easy install options (like Softaculous)? I will update this list with the information that comes in.
ImpressCMS Specific Setup?

Currently our site is hosted on Siteground hosting, but unfortunately they did major upgrade recently which removed their support for Softaculous. As you may know, ImpressCMS is available on softaculous for (even yèt) easier installation and upgrades, and so we needed to upload all files ourselves and short-circuit our Softaculous installation.
My other hosting provider also has Softaculous, but due to a misconfiguration on their part, I need to intervene manually in order to get a first install working. Bummer.
I would love to have DigitalOcean, AWS or Azure (or other services) easy to install available but I'm not using any of those at the moment so I don't now what would be the best to focus on to get working. Vanilla Docker Compose perhaps?
Great, thanks for confirming that the issue was fixed on your side as well. No problem with slow replies, normal life has its necessities too
I can not even spend a fraction of the time I would like to on ImpressCMS, I sympathize.
I can login now and the error before is already fix.
Apologize for late reply, I will test this now and I will update you
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.
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
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.
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..
Hi, I see you are trying to connect to the database at 127.0.0.1, 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 127.0.0.1 -> localhost in your .env file and let me know if that solves the problem?
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 https://github.com/ImpressCMS/impresscms.git
- 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..
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
More results - iForum 1.0 Final also requires ImpressCMS 1.3+, while iForum 1.0 RC does not.
thanks for the update, I have updated the information on the github page : https://github.com/iForumModule/iforum/blob/master/README.md
One of these days I should test iForum thoroughly on PHP7 and release the 2.0 final
Ran some tests this morning - iForum 2.0 requires ImpressCMS 1.3+ and not 1.2+ as the readme states. I'll have to do this in stages
I'm thinking of updating the imBuilding templates to make them compatible with 1.4. While doing that, adding a skeleton to support fine-grained permissions might be a worthwile improvement.
I've been reexamining my choice of having separate modules for news (time sensitive posts), articles (long term posts), and blogs (mostly point-of-view posts, that could be short- or long-term posts) and haven't done much in the way of documenting a path forward, especially for modules that don't have a current compliant version.
The forum migration should be workable - iForum has the permissions structure I'm looking to maintain and works in ImpressCMS 1.2+. We also know it works on 1.3.
News will probably end up being blog posts, and articles will probably end up being wiki pages. I haven't fully decided, yetl
Hi @skenow , any news on this one? If the page on the wiki needs updating, feel free to do so based on your experience
