Hi,

I have created a full website offline successfully through LAMPP. It's my first week on Microweber and have designed a template and created the whole site in just three days. This is quite surprising, since it will take me a long time to develop the same output with Wordpress. Good work, MW team!

However, I had a problem.

Assuming that the uploading process is like Wordpress, I have uploaded all files via FTP to my server. Next, I imported the SQL file to my PHP MyAdmin (this is my Microweber database). I then edited my configurations on config.php, as I would if I used Wordpress and updated the MySQL configs.

However, my site is not working properly. I assume well it isn't because the "title" of the page is {content _ meta _ title} (without spaces), showed the default theme without traces of my content.

I'm very sure that there's something wrong in my database. I couldn't find any instruction on the Docs for this. No instruction on what to update on the database to make it work. In Wordpress, you would need to edit the "wp_options" table in the database (changing the localhost urls to its new URL) to make it work. How do we do this on Microweber?

Can you provide full instructions on how to upload a website which is developed within xampp to online server, configs and database edits?

This is a test website I've made, so you can grab my point: http://sleepapneasymptoms.esy.es/

The /admin shows an Internal Server Error:

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@sleepapneasymptoms.esy.es and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Hi mastermarketer3,

When you upload your site to remote server, please check in your .htaccess if the sub-folder of your local server is present.

Please check in your htaccess if you have

RewriteBase /your-subfolder

If you have it please remove it.

Also the problem may not be this as your server is giving "Internal Server Error" for some reason.

Can you download the newest version from here https://github.com/microweber/microweber/archive/master.zip , upload to your website and put your config.php

If the problem is still there, you can send us your FTP details from the contact form and we will check.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the input. I'm actually using the latest version of Microweber. Should I upload all my files to my server and overwrite everything (as I may lose media files that I've used before) or should I overwrite only specific admin folders that may fix the problem? (like wp-includes and wp-content folders, if Wordpress. Sorry about the comparisons, I got used to the previous CMS).

I'm sry if it's a dumb question, but I'm not sure what's the purpose.

hi mastermarketer3,

You can safely upload the files from the download and overwrite the existing files.

All new files that you put are not overwritten. The zip contains just the system files.

You can overwrite all files and make new install on your remote server.

When the install is ready, upload the database from localhost.

All images that you upload are in userfiles/media/ folder. You can put this folder to on the remote server.

Hope this helps

On the remote server, to make new install, please delete the config.php file in the root dir

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the help, the site is now working. :) Next time I'll upload my site to remote server, here's what I'm gonna do:

1. Create a New Database and Import my local database.
2. Upload Microweber
3. Upload Userfiles
4. Microweber installation runs through homepage, input database settings (this creates the config)

Thanks,

MM
