I never had problems with uploading my site to Bluehost until recently. My guess is the problem is cyberduck. Ever since they made their most recent upgrade, my uploads have often had problems. On this site: visullyspeaking.info you will see the images don't display and when signing in, the css for the admin panel does not work, and I'm sure there are other missing components too, I just haven't looked deeply into the site. Can you point me in the right direction to troubleshoot?

I'm guessing you mean "visuallyspeaking.info" - the images and css appear to be displaying without a problem. I can't say for certain that the problem is Cyberduck, personally I use Filezilla. (They have a version for Macs now,http://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client... )

I would recommend calling Bluehost support, 888-401-4678, they don't support Concrete5 specifically but they would definitely be able to assist with any FTP problems.

I just installed concrete5 via simple scripts on bluehost.
When i login as the admin, I don't see the edit button to modify my pages. What do i have to do to make it work? thanks.

are you working with a custom theme? If so, you must make sure that

<? Loader::element('header_required'); ?>

is added within the <head></head> tags for all of your page types
pstjcwong replied on at Permalink Reply
pstjcwong
by page types do you mean all the different html files? if yes, then I did that, and still nothing. thanks. here's a sample of the code:

</script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/text12.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/12_darkgray.css" />
<? Loader::element('header_required'); ?>
</head>

hey, yep, but all page types, ie default, left_sidebar or whatever page types you have created, should all be php files and end in the .php extension
One other thing i have noticed is that you css files arent coded quite right, they should look like this

link href="<?=$this->getThemePath()?>/yourstylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />

Obviously you need to replace "yourstylesheet" with the correct filename.

Can you let me know the url so i can see the site?

thanks - i'm not an experienced coder; someone else put the site together and i just want to simplify changes.

Heya,

the page that you see when you visithttp://www.mbc-web.org is an index.html page. You need to be making your changes to the theme in /themes/your-theme-name/default.php etc. Also, I tried visitinghttp://www.mbc-web.org/index.php and got an error saying that it couldn't find the dispatcher, so C5 clearly hasn't been installed correctly. If you would like me to get your theme working for you, let me know and I'll take a look.

Also - I recommend checking this page out:

What is the best way to set up concrete5 with 3 domains?
I have a bluehost account with a dedicated ip and ssl certificate.
Domain1 is in the /public_html folder as the main domain and concrete5 has already been installed there (in the root) so all the concrete5 files have been propagated in my root folder.

Now I want to install Concrete5 with
Domains 2 and 3 but they are located in subfolders like this: public_html/Domain2 and public_html/Domain3.
Should I do 2 more installs of concrete5 and if so what files should I move around--i.e. do I need to move Domain 1 into a subfolder and do what else?
I've read that I can just keep one install and have the other domains point to certain pages on the tree--should I do that? And if so I'm not certain how.
What are the pros and cons, or what questions will help me decide.
ntgross replied on at Permalink Reply
ntgross
The other domains on the account should be assigned as "Add-on" domains and consequently they are associated to a subfolder of public_html. Each domain should have it's own installation of Concrete5. The main domain content is always in public_html - so you don't need to move it. If you are using Simple Scripts (which I recommend using) to install Concrete5, it finds the correct directory automatically.

The primary disadvantage to having one Concrete5 install to cover three domains is that each of your add-on domains will simply redirect to a page on your main domain. If you want each domain to have it's own content and keep the individual domain in the address bar, create separate installs for the add-on domains.
CBknits replied on at Permalink Reply
Thank you--just what I needed to know! I was worried about installing Concrete5 into 2 subfolders because I had read somewhere
that it wasn't a good idea, but I couldn't find the post anywhere. I will give this a try.

(My 2 extra domains are assigned as "Add-ons" and I used Simple scripts before to install into my main domain--worked perfectly, very happy with it).

Thanks again ntgross!

I know this isnt really what this thread is about, but I was just curious if anyone had any experience setting up bluehost to use a single core for multiple websites (similar to corretje's guide for plesk -http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/how-tos/plesk-multiple-insta...

I know there is a plugin available for Cpanel from Concrete5, however I don't really need the ability for clients to do multiple installs and whatnot, I manage all of my clients site's on their behalf, so I just really want one core to update rather than each one individually. Just curious, not really a critical thing.

I'm curious if there are any tips for performance optimization on Bluehost. For instance, is enabling Zend Optimizer worthwhile? If so, is there an easy way to do it? Any other Bluehost-specific tips for better speed?
ntgross replied on at Permalink Reply
ntgross
Bluehost supports APC and Zend, but you will need to send in a support ticket or call to have APC installed. Zend is already installed, you just need to adjust your php.ini file.
http://helpdesk.bluehost.com/index.php/kb/article/000447...

Here's what the developers say: If at all possible, forego Zend Optimizer entirely, and use something like APC ...
http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/developers/system/performanc...

Here are links to discussions on how to use APC with Concrete5:http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/chat/clear-instructions-t...
http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/chat/wow-5-4-apc-fast/...


Bottom line - Zend is easier to activate but APC is probably faster.
hursey013 replied on at Permalink Reply
hursey013
Bluehost does not support APC - just recently checked. I believe they did at one point however.
ntgross replied on at Permalink Reply

Bluehost does install APC and it does require some configuration. Its not installed by default so you may need to send in a support ticket. Some techs may not recommend using APC but it can be done.

Interesting - I did open a support ticket and received:

"Unfortunately that is not something that we can do. I apologize for any inconvenience

You were right, I resubmitted the ticket only this time directed it to "Site/Script Compatibility" and they took care of it. One issue though - they said that in order to use APC I need to use the fastcgi php and when I enable this all of my pretty urls no longer work - is there a workaround for this?
jbx replied on at Permalink Reply
jbx
There are workarounds on the forum for fastcgi and pretty urls, but it can be a nightmare tracking down exactly which fix is needed for each setup. I think it's a bit of a joke that any hosting company would run a setup that made users choose between basic modrewrite and APC cache. I manage 4 separate hosting facilities and they all provide apc and don't need fastcgi for php, so no prettyurl issues!

hursey013 did you get this working (APC on Bluehost)? I have a client on Bluehost that just launched and the site is slow enough that we're considering moving hosts. If there is a way to speed things up with less work than it will take to switch servers I'm very interested.
hursey013 replied on at Permalink Reply
hursey013
I did get it working. Once Bluehost had installed APC I added the required information to the php.ini and insured Fastcgi was running. Once you do that all the pretty urls break, so I followed the steps here:http://jeremeclaussen.com/blog/2010/3/30/concrete5-pretty-urls-and-... to correct that.

Bluehost was already pretty quick without APC - when I get some time I will do a little more testing to see how much of an improvement APC actually has, but it does seem like a pretty noticeable improvement.
kirkroberts replied on at Permalink Reply
kirkroberts
Great, thanks for the reply.

Just so I'm sure I'm doing this right, can you confirm these steps?
- define apc as the cache in config/site.php
- enable apc in php.ini (and disable zend)
- change php mode to fast cgi in bluehost cpanel
- apply the pretty url fix

Anything else?
Is it still helpful to do the core mods listed here:http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/chat/clear-instructions-t...
?
Obviously I'd rather not touch the core if possible.

EDIT: I did the four steps above and speed is MUCH better! Thanks! Still wondering if the core mods will be worthwhile.

EDIT 2: after an initial speed burst the site seems to be back to its average-to-slow speed :-(
Here's the site:http://pelegtop.com/
Granted, we're loading a bunch of fonts and a few script files... still seems like it could be faster, though, and it's the initial page load that worries me most. Note: I instituted a php flush() after the head section to see if that would help... not sure if maybe that is actually harming things.

EDIT 3: actually, the speed is fluctuating and is sometimes pretty good. I guess this is just life on the internet and a shared server. Still wondering if the core mods relating to APC will be worthwhile to implement and maintain across c5 upgrades.
hursey013 replied on at Permalink Reply
hursey013
I'm pretty sure that if you are running the latest version of c5 the mod to cache.php is no longer necessary - I think that was for the past version. I'm still not completely sold on apc on bluehost yet, I still need to tweak it - right now it seems to keep randomly resetting its cache which may explain why its fast sometimes and not other. If I figure out more consistent configuration I'll let you know.

Anyone what the "sample data" Bluehost adds to the installation.

I wish I would have come here first. I kept viewing these starter tutorials with the pictures that I didn't see on my homepage so I did the uninstall / reinstall several times :(

Hi,

When a user registers to my website an email is sent with a link to activate the account. Do you know how I can change the email address of the sender of this email? It currently shows [email protected]

and I would like to show something like:

Thank you in advance.

There are a few ways to make it happen. The fastest is to specify a default sending email address in the php.ini file, check out this Bluehost KB article.

Hopefully someone will be able to take a look and lend some guidance. I have a site on Bluehost that at first had acceptable speed and recently has been intermittently horrible. Here it is:http://pelegtop.com

I have Emergency Cache Mode set in the Dashboard.
I have FastCGI enabled.
APC is turned on in php.ini and Zend is disabled.

I know there are quite a few files being loaded on the site, but even so the page load time is sometimes acceptable, sometimes not even close (I just got one where it took the main page over 36 seconds... just the php page... no additional assets).

Any tips on speeding up the site? We're at the point of being ready to switch hosts to get better speed.
hursey013 replied on at Permalink Reply
hursey013
Really strange. I have the identical setup and my sites are very fast - I wonder if you are just on a shared server thats being overloaded - perhaps Bluehost can move your site to a new server?
kirkroberts replied on at Permalink Reply
kirkroberts
Yes, it's odd.
I also have this in site.php:
define('CACHE_FRONTEND_OPTIONS', serialize(array('automatic_cleaning_factor' => 0)));


hursey013: I think your theory may be right. The site was performing okay for a while and in the last week or so has been a dog.

At the same time, I'm open to hearing that it's something I've done wrong. Whatever it takes to speed up the site.
hursey013 replied on at Permalink Reply
hursey013
I wonder, is it still slow with Fastcgi & APC turned off? I didn't really notice that much of a performance gain with APC, perhaps something with your APC configuration is doing more damage than help?
kirkroberts replied on at Permalink Reply
kirkroberts
Thanks for the idea!... I'll try that tomorrow morning.
kirkroberts replied on at Permalink Reply
kirkroberts
Wouldn't you know it... I went to the site this morning and it was running acceptably: consistently 2-4 seconds a page. Not shabby, considering what's been going on recently.

Not sure if this means the slowdown was because of server load... or if disabling fastcgi and apc would improve things overall. I let the sleeping dog lie for now.

The variance has me thinking about switching hosts.
ntgross replied on at Permalink Reply
ntgross
Just to clarify, as of this morning it is loading with reasonable speeds with FastCGI and APC still enabled?
kirkroberts replied on at Permalink Reply
kirkroberts
Actually, no.
Early this morning (about 7:30a Eastern) I was getting consistently decent speeds (2-4 seconds).

Now (about 10:20a Eastern) it is back to being all over the place. 3 seconds for this load. 25 seconds for the next one.

APC and FastCGI are still enabled.

ntgross: would you also recommend disabling APC and FastCGI?
ntgross replied on at Permalink Reply
ntgross
In my experience enabling APC or a similar caching (eg Memcache) on any shared host typically doesn't help with speed due to the way resources have to be allocated.
kirkroberts replied on at Permalink Reply
kirkroberts
Good to know about apc and a shared server.

I don't like to point fingers, but I'm seeing page load times (the php page, not the assets) go up and down like crazy. From under a second up to a full minute. For the same page, even, just reloading it. So it seems something is wonky on the server. Definitely open to ideas if anyone wants to share.
hursey013 replied on at Permalink Reply
hursey013
You know what's funny, as soon as you posted this message, I got an alert that my bluehost sites we're timing out. They are all now taking forever to load, first time I've seen this happen - they are normally very quick. My guess is bluehost may be having some intermittent issues?
kirkroberts replied on at Permalink Reply

I'm not sure if "funny" is the f-word I would use right now! :-)

EDIT: now my site is down with a 500 server error. sweet.
ntgross replied on at Permalink Reply

Because of the varying speed throughout the day (better at night and early morning) times it could be be a matter of high server load. You can request migration to a different server, but I'd recommend first calling Bluehost ( 888-401-4678 ) or contacting their "Site Compatibility" team:http://helpdesk.bluehost.com/index.php/contact...

I recently did some updates on a server and started having a problem with APC, You should monitor apc.php and see if your Cache Full Count is going up and if Fragmentation is high. I had to make some adjustments to my APC configuration to get things work right again.
hursey013 replied on at Permalink Reply
hursey013
Just checked my apc.php and noticed it wasn't caching anything anymore - what changes did you have to make?
pvernaglia replied on at Permalink Reply
pvernaglia
My cache was maxing out and fragmentation was hitting 100%. I bummped up apc.shm_size and lowered apc.ttl

Is your APC enabled in the configuration? My current configuration looks like this and is working very well:

extension = apc.so
apc.enabled=1
apc.shm_segments=1
apc.optimization=0
apc.shm_size=128M
apc.ttl=0
apc.user_ttl=0
apc.num_files_hint=1024
apc.mmap_file_mask=/tmp/apc.XXXXXX
apc.enable_cli=1
apc.cache_by_default=1

I also added to my php.ini:

realpath_cache_size = 64m
realpath_cache_ttl = 180

Hello,

I have tried to get Concrete5 runing on a subdomain. Therefore I created a subdomain with the Cpanel, for example I createdhttp://www.website2.mysite.com, with the document root pointing to localhost/public_html/website2 and then I installed concrete5 in the folder website2. I modified the file localhost/public_html/website2/conf/site.php as follow:
before it was:
<?php 
define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');
define('DB_USERNAME', 'userdatabase');
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'pwdb');
define('DB_DATABASE', 'database');
define('BASE_URL', 'http://www.mysite.com');
define('DIR_REL', '/website2');
define('PASSWORD_SALT', 'longpassword');

now to use the subdomain url I tried the following:
<?php 
define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');
define('DB_USERNAME', 'userdatabase');
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'pwdb');
define('DB_DATABASE', 'database');
define('BASE_URL', 'http://www.website2.mysite.com');
define('DIR_REL', '/');
define('PASSWORD_SALT', 'longpassword');


This doesn't work, it gives me:
"Concrete CMS
Page Not Found
No page could be found at this address.



Back to Home. "
and the "back to home" link goes nowhere.

Does anyone knows how to set the things right so that I can use the sub-domain url to acces the concrete5 website?

Thank you

Do you have "fancy URLS" turned on in the subdomain website2? If so, you will need to modify your .htaccess. Just a shot in the dark :)
nteaviation replied on at Permalink Reply
nteaviation
Ignore previous post. If you are being hosted virtually, then website1 and your subdomain website2's IP addresses both point the same place. There in lies the rub. Concrete5 does not support sub-domains unless you get the multi-site add-on from the market place. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
ntgross replied on at Permalink Reply

Sunbdomains are handled like any TLD using Croncrete5. You would a muti-site plugin if you were using one Concrete5 install to manage multiple subdomains. However it seems like he has standalone install for the subdomain.

That's right. sharing a common core between sites you need the plugin. It should work. Take a look at this:

Try removing the '/' like this:

Have you enabled "pretty urls?"
nteaviation replied on at Permalink Reply
nteaviation
Try changinghttp://www.website2.mysite.com to just website2.mysite.com in line:
define('BASE_URL', 'http://www.website2.mysite.com');

Loose the www in front of the URL. That may be confusing apache.
birdyX replied on at Permalink Reply
Thank you for your message,

no I don't have pretty urls enabled,

I am trying first to get the registration page running (because it is the most important thing I need in the website) then if I get it run properly, I will build the website and digg further in the options.
If I start by building all the website and then realised I cannot get the desired registration page, it would be a lot of work for nothing.

I am new to websites and trying to get a website set up on bluehost with concrete. After installing concrete, I go to login screen, put in my info and am just redirected to the empty mainpage (http://www.stanfordrellc.com/). I have tried to install/reinstall with no luck. I just want to be able to access the gui to install a theme, edit content etc.

Any advice would be much appreciated. Please explain in detail as I am a total noob.

Did you install concrete5 via the Bluehost cPanel? What do you mean by "empty mainpage"? After logging in, you do not see the Concrete5 buttons across the top?

Yes, I installed via cpanel using simplescripts. After installing it gives me a link to a login page:http://www.stanfordrellc.com/index.php/login... After putting in my user name and password I get sent to the main page of the websitehttp://www.stanfordrellc.com instead of a concrete control panel.

The web server should default and look for index.php whenever someone accesseshttp://www.yoursite.com, just make sure you don't have a index.html or index.htm files in your webroot. I accessed your site and it seems fine. At the botton of the page is a link to the concrete5 adminstration login, or you can access it directly withhttp://www.yoursite.com/index.php/login...

Hi. I've installed Concrete5 into my primary bluehost domain via the simple scripts.

I did enable pretty URLs.

I have a home page, which works fine. Then I created a single page and used a block from expandable forms. I can see the page in my editor, and I can see it when I'm logged into my site via the indexphp address, but when i log out and try to get to it via the pretty URL listed or the indexphp addy I get an error message in my browser (pasted below).

This is pretty beyond my scope of knowledge. Can anyone advise? I'm not even sure if this is a server (Bluehost) or a Concrete 5 issues.

The webpage athttps://www.theparsonsgroup.com/~theparso/~theparso/~theparso/~thepa... has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

Hi,

I've installed c5 via simple scripts, and I'll give it a shot for a 2-language (English and Serbian) site.
The first problem I have is that any non-latin-1 characters are displayed as question marks.
It looks like UTF-8 is not used at some point where it should have been. I've juggled a lot with encodings in PHP, but I really hope that I don't have to hack that much. Editing a single config file would be fine though.

Thanks

I'm using C5 and cannot use the login on some IE8 machines. I went through the IE8 setting on one working, and one not. Set them EXACTLY the same and no change. When I login I get sent to a second login screen, if I select "remember me" it will sometimes let me login. On a couple of IE8's, I can't see the admin tools. Any help would be GREAT! I've not had any issues with Chrome or Firefox.

Unfortunately (fortunately?) I never use IE except when testing (I don't even have it installed at the moment) and I've never had a problem with Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Safari. Updating to Internet Explorer 9 might correct the problem, but there is no guarantee. The issue may originate with some IE security settings or (I'm open for suggestions).

This may be a issue that would benefit from a Concrete5 developer taking a look.

I'm a chrome guy myself, but many of the fire departments that use the

So, it's sadly an issue I have to fix.

I can confirm your issue using IE 8 (compatablitly mode on and off). I was unable to login at all from any login screen. It looks like you are using the "login block" out of the Market Place. You may shoot a note to the author and see if they might be able to shed some light. Also, this is an old thread and IMHO this issue has nothing to do with Bluehost installation, so you may want to start a new thread with a better disciption of the problem and some additional information (version - looks like 5.4.2.2, addons - login block, themes - burned?, etc...).

First thing that you should know is i'm a Newbie to uploading programs to websites.



So I would like to know how do I use Concrete 5 on Bluehost with Filezilla? And this is mainly to upload pictures/change a couple of things around at this place http://www.justforfunflowers.com

@november17th... you have posted a new question to a VERY long, old thread. Perhaps you should post a new question.

I will answer your question for you though. The site you linked to was built using Flash. It is not a concrete5 site so you can't add photos or change things on that site using concrete5.

Your only option would be to install concrete5 on Bluehost and re-build the site fresh. The instructions for doing that are here:

I just realized that forms have not been sending confirmation emails.
I've tried everything I can think of, from adding:
define('EMAIL_DEFAULT_FROM_ADDRESS', [email protected]');
define('FORM_BLOCK_SENDER_EMAIL',[email protected]');

on into testing every single possible mail PHP/SMTP function that BH gives the info for. From using a '+' and '@' on down to mail.domain.com/box123.domain.com.

No dice anywhere. Default mail logs show "Unable to send mail'. SMTP logs vary: Connection timed out, Relaying is administratively denied, Could not read from box123.bluehost.com. All depending what I had in SMTP. Contacted BH support and they said as long as I have the email created that I'm sending from it should work.

Prior to the upgrade, it used to send using my email since I was the admin/first account. That worked no problem. Not sure what happened.

Please help!

I was given information from Bluehost to do a folder redirection if C5 is installed in a subfolder of the root, and if I needed to redirect the primary domain to that installation. For whatever reason I can't point the primary domain to a subfolder like I can do with add-on domains. All works fine on the C5 install, but now the add-on domain comes up as not found, because it is looking for it within the C5 folder instead of up one level in the root.

Is there a way to code .htaccess so that the add-on domain directs correctly?

This is the guide I followed
http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/how-tos/developers/hide-the-...

It doesn't make any mention of how to handle add-on domains.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I am building a website with concrete5 for a client. The website is hosted on blue host. The client bought ssh and installed it.
Since the ssh is inslalled the website is no longer editable - no edit button, no dashboard.
Somebody who manage to fix this problem?
Thanks

Hard to say what the problem is from here. I'd recommend sending Bluehost a ticket/email,https://my.bluehost.com/hosting/help/ticket...

Hi! I'm using BH for the first time. I have already built my entire C5 site on my local host, and I'm now ready to transfer it over to BH. Can I use the Simple Scripts install to do this quickly? Or is that install only for blank sites? Is there someplace I can find a "sample workflow" from taking my C5 site from a local host to live host? Thanks!

Absolutely! Concrete5 has a guide ->http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/developers/5.6/installation/...

Bluehost has some guides on creating an importing databases as well as uploading the site files:
