install problems

Hi,

I'm new to mojoPortal, I'm trying to install it, but the instructions don't really say anything on how to install on the web it seems its only for the localhost, can mojoPortal be installed like that of dotnetnuke and like that of php based cms for example like joomla. We're using hsphere as the control panel, and when adding database it usually adds a prefix, i have not asked the host yet if it is possible to throw away the prefix. is there an alternative or can we use another db name. I don't think we have access to an enterprise manager so how do i run the SQL scripts.

thanks, Al

Re: install problems

Hi Al,

Yes, its no problem to use any database name you choose, just put the correct db name in the connection string in web.config

It should be easy to setup mojoportal at just about any host, the main thing is to make sure the web process has permission to write all files/folders beneath the Data folder

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: install problems

Are you using the source code version or the release version of mojoPortal. The release version has the scripts to create the tables and stored procedures in the dbScripts folder inside the downloaded zip file.

The source code download has scripts for each db, look in MSSQLData folder.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: install problems

Hi Joe,

i'm using this release:

mojoportal-2-1-5-1-mssqlreleasefiles

its the compiled or the binary one, not the source code, under this folder are the stored procedures, i guess i need to install the scripts, my problem right now is with the host i think, i can't upload these stored procedures. maybe i'll try using mysql for now.

Thanks, Al

Re: install problems

I've managed to figure out where the dlls should be (silly me) anyway i'm getting this error:


Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="Off"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>


And I've tried to change the remote only to off and see what the error is I still get the same error message, what did i miss

Re: install problems

You should copy all the dlls from the mysqldatalayer download into the bin folder overwriting any files by the same name which were in the main mssql download

Its possible your host has custom errors set to remoteonly in machine.config and is not allowing override from web.config.

Anything in /Data/currentlog.config file?

Did you set the MySQLConnectionString in Web.config?

Re: install problems

yes, i was able to set the mysql connection string this is the one right?

-->
        <add key="CacheMSSQLParameters" value="true" />
       
        <add key="MySqlConnectionString" value="Data Sourc....

also i've tried to install the mssql version of this and I realized that our host does not allow us to create stored procedures, this still has yet to be resolved, so right now I want to try out the MySql version. With the MSSql version i was able to set the remote to off and this MySql version i just can't.

Thanks, Al

Re: install problems

The most common installation problem is if the Data folder beneath the web is not writable by the web process and I suspect that this is the situation for you.

If the Data folder is writable then there will be a file there named currentlog.config


Does this file exist? If not then you need to make the folder and all child objects wriatable, then type a space in web.config to recycle the application

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: install problems

here's what i did i've uploaded all of the files under the root folder to a subdomain, next i made sure that all files and folders have the 777 permissions.

Under the other subdomain for the mssql i do have that file, while for the mysql one that file does not exist. what do you mean by type a space in web.config.

i'll try to set the port and see what happens.

Thanks, Al
