How to complete installation on my DreamHost Server
Instructions for guiding you through the rest of the install process can be found here:
When I go to this link, I just don't have a clue where to put the information to complete the setup of Concrete5 on my server. Can someone help me? I'm not very savvy at this but can follow directions.
This link was provided that takes me to Concrete5 site but I don't have a clue where to put the info. Can someone please help me?
hope this helps!
I'm having the same problem.
Also, be sure to use the user name and password in the email. Not the one you actually use to log in to Dream Panel.
I hope that helps!
I also am on Dreamhost, had no prob, as long as you follow the e-mail insructions.
I have another question. Currently it is the Concrete5 managed pages appear atwww.www.alloneplace.net/concrete5... . I'd like them to appear athttp://www.alloneplace.net. How do you do that? Is that just a matter of not putting a folder name like concrete5 during the installation process or can that be changed later in the process?
You should be asking Dreamhost this but...
Whoever installed the site named a sub-directory "concrete5" at the beginning of the install so your site is yourdomain/concrete5.
To install in the root:
Click on "one click install" in Dreamhost manager under goodies, then on C5 installation when the screen appears click on "custom install" under that is install to: the first field is the root of the domain you want to install to i.e.http://www.mydomain.com, the second field defines a sub-directory which was defined as "concrete5" when someone did the install, so to make it simple, if you want the site to appear at yourdomain.com (whatever the extension)do not enter anything in the second field after the /.
I have tried several times to start a concrete5 site in a Dreamhost subdomain, always ending in mysterious failure. I've wiped the subdomain, I've deleted the sql databases, but nothing seems to help. I press the button for the simple install, I get the email that said the install was successful, I go to the concrete5 site url and enter the info provided by the email into the nice form and submit it, and after a long time I end up with an error message. I can see using the php admin tool that the sql database is being populated with tables etc., but the error message complains that something went wrong without giving me much clue what it was. Is there something else I need to do before I start the process? Thx.
