mojoPortal on x10Hosting

Hello there,

I've been trying to get mojoPortal working on , a free, ad-free webhosting that is running on linux and has mojo for support. Awesome.

It uses cpanel 1.0, and I have access to the file manager, ftp, mysql database (supposed to be postgre also, but there's an error and I cannot add a DB to it), the works.

The first problem I ran in is that I tried to upload the "regular" version of mojoPortal, which got fixed when Joe told me to get the pgrelease for mono, which I did.

It successfully installed on x10Hosting and the Setup finally worked, starting up the site. Now though, the error I'm getting is this:

Server Error in '/' Application

Description: HTTP 500. Error processing request.

Stack Trace:

System.DllNotFoundException: gdiplus.dll
at (wrapper managed-to-native) System.Drawing.GDIPlus:GdiplusStartup (ulong&,System.Drawing.GdiplusStartupInput&,System.Drawing.GdiplusStartupOutput&)
at System.Drawing.GDIPlus..cctor () [0x00000]

Version information: Mono Version: 2.0.50727.1433; ASP.NET Version: 2.0.50727.1433

Can I disable gdiplus.dll (and how?) or is that fixable?

Re: mojoPortal on x10Hosting


That stack trace doesn't show any mojoPortal code only Mono code so I'm not sure what to tell you.

I know that when I compile Mono from source code to setup ASP.NET, I have to compile libgdiplus as it is needed for handling of image files.

To be honest I think Mono is still pretty rough around the edges which is why there are not many hosts offering it yet. They are on the verge of a new release of Mono that may be better but then it will depend on the host upgrading it. I cannot tell from this error what the real Mono version is at your host as Mono is just mimicing the ASP.NET version in the web page error.

If the host is actually claiming to support mojoportal then I would ask them for help assuming they have been able to get it working before.

Hope it helps,

Re: mojoPortal on x10Hosting

Hi Joe,

After a bit of messing around I think I know what the problem is - the GD library is currenly not functional on x10Hosting. I actually was trying out some other stuff and installed Drupal, and after installation it gives a "report" of what's not working, GD indicates it's "missing or out of date".

I might suggest that this would be a good idea for mojoPortal - have a "check" of all the pre-requisites and say what's missing. Even if it's a separate script to do as a pre-install thing. I did not find anywhere in the documentation where you list all the precise pre-requisites either, just "asp" and that's that. Something to think about I guess.

I'll continue using mojo for our Intranet, but on x10hosting, I'll drop the subject for now.



P.S. The host doesn't indicate it support mojoPortal, I just googled "Free hosting" and it came up in the first 5 results. It's bannerless too, which is awesome.
