Hello from Japan.
Thank you always for the version upgrades and maintenance.
Now, I wanted to upgrade my WebServer's PHP from 7.4 to 8.2, but ImpressCMS was not compatible with PHP 8.2, so I did some trial and error and managed to install and manage it with PHP 8.2.
As for the modules, I am gradually making adjustments to the modules I use (Japanese version). I hope this is helpful. Please download from here.
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?
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
