Can I re-install again?
Today when I try to log in I can't - the message I get is no site exists at this address.
I have an active thread under editing (http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/usage/newbie-and-struggling/#257053) but TBH since I'm no longer able to log-in in any form I think I may have to go back to basics.
It is allowed for me to just start afresh?
Thanks in advance, Teri
To completely start from fresh, you would need to delete all of the Concrete5 files from the root directory of your web server and also delete the tables from your database, therefore resulting in a completely clean base to start afresh.
Hope this helps.
(sorry if that's a dumb question, newbie!)
Cheers Teri x
You would then clear your browser history/cache etc to ensure everything is "new", upload the concrete5 files to your web server again after you have either cleared your database or deleted and created a new one.
Once your files have successfully been uploaded to your web server again, then you simply navigate to your website and run the online installation again, this will give you a completely new install of C5.
Some web hosts have C5 as a one click install and they may just be able to reinstall the whole thing, but I am uncertain of your set up/web host etc.
I hope this clarifies a little further but if I am missing the point, let me know.
thanks for taking the time to reply :-)
My earlier post probably didn't read like it made a lot of sense, apologies.
I have a demo install (or had) hosted on c5host.com - to test it. I haven't any experience with concrete5 and haven't tried to upload anything to my domain host yet.
For some reason, almost certainly my own fault, when I go to where I should log into my site (URL tervuerens.c5host.com)and put in my details it comes up as Page Not Found ......... That's why I was wondering if I could just do another install - but I realise that was a confusing phrase because I mean sign up for a second demo installation on c5host.com
Hope that all makes sense.
ps love your profile info LOL
Ah I see :)
To be honest, all of our C5 stuff is carried out on our own servers etc so I dont know the set up of c5host.com but I can only assume that you can sign up for another demo. They'd probably be grateful if you let them know that your other set up has failed so they can remove it (not clogging up server space unnecessarily :)
If you have any issues, I also own digitalcratehosting.co.uk (which has the Concrete5 1-click install function for you, shamless plug ;) and I would be happy to set up a full install for you to play with on the back of one of my test servers. Just a thought for you :)
Either way, I'm sure you'll get it sorted :)
thanks for trying to help - I'm a whimp and thought I might annoy the powers that be on conctrete5.org if I set up another demo without checking first.
I have around 32 months left on my current hosting plan or I'd be tempted to jump ship. They've approved me using concrete5 but I will need to set it up myself when the time comes (who's kidding who - I'll be stalking this board in the wee small hours!)
I'm determined to give this a go - I already have a fully functioning website that I made myself believe it or not - but I'm self taught so lots of guess work and bad habits to lay to rest (still trying to shake off MS Front Page from years ago)
OK, waffling now - thanks for everything!
no problem at all.
Dont worry, no hard sell sales patter there. I didnt realise the situation so just thought I'd offer to set up an install for you so you could have a play, not to move your site to me so dont worry ;)
I think its great you are having a go yourself, and if it helps, I've probably learnt more about design and development reading through forums just like these. Luckily, the c5 forums and there members are pretty awesome so you will normally get a really quick response to any questions you have.
Good luck with it all and if you do need any pointers, then feel free to pm me and I'll help wherever I can.
