I have installed Joomla! 1.5.3 but the most manuals are for 1.0.15 :( so I would like to change it. But I have no clue of how I can do this. Is there anybody who can explain to me how I can change this??

Windows Hosting plan runs ASP. Joomla needs PHP in order to run so your stuck to Linux. You can easly (and for free) convert your current hosting plan from Windows to Linux from the GoDaddy control panel.


Can you still do things on a Windows based system, even if Linux OS hosting is enabled?

The instructions say I can "Switch Operating System" in the hosting account details, but I don't see that option.

Re: Installation Manual for Joomla! on GoDaddy servers

When building my 1st (and only) Joomla site, the single most important item useful to helping me understand how and where the various modules would show up was the inline positions. I could open that and know where to start. Also by using that, I was able to determine which files I needed to edit to tweak the site to make something work.

I recently tried to build a second site on GoDaddy but the only version they support is 1.5 which does not have the Inline Positions. I have been working for two weeks to try and figure out where the modules show up and how to locate various modules and elements to resize my templates, etc. I finally had to completely uninstall Joomla 1.5. Now I am trying to reinstall 1.0.5 back into my site and having problems with the installation since GoDaddy no longer supports it and it has to be manually uploaded one folder at a time. I cannot believe Joomla developers left out the Inline Positions. Can this not be put back? I'm sure 1.5 works well for experienced Joomla users but for me it's caused nothing but headaches. What a colossal mistake!

I said all that to say this: Now that I have uninstalled 1.5 and cannot reinstall if from within GoDaddy, I've tried and tried to reinstall 1.0.5 manually and keep getting error messages. I have checked and doubled checked all the files and folders. They are all there. I should note I am running a law office site on GoDaddy under a senate site.

Here's my error messages. I hope someone can help explain. I'm totally lost.

Warning: main(../includes/version.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/j/o/h/johnedva/html/lawoffice/installation/index.php on line 22

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '../includes/version.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/content/j/o/h/johnedva/html/lawoffice/installation/index.php on line 22

you can still view them there are 2 ways to go
1 http://domainname.com/index?tp=1
or
template manager select your template click edit then click preview


you can upload the zip file to server then thru file manager of your host control panel unarchive the zip file
as for reinstalling 1.5 you can do it manually just have to have database set up first then you can run the web installer
write down the host name for the database "pxxmysqlxxx.securserver.net" database name and password the user name is the same as database name

I just looked at the tutorial and it seems quite straight forward. I am persuaded to go with GoDaddy instead of the Yahoo hosting solution.

Hi

I have uploaded my site (copy paste all files) to my godaddy windows account. I have setup the database. Everything works fine except from the fact that whenever I try to install a plugin or module on my godaddy hosting account it gives me a blank screen instead of the installation successful message and it does not install it. I once got a message saying "Error 500 - There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed".
I have successfully manage to install all the plugins and modules on my WAMP server at home and they work fine. I don't know what's the problem. I tried to contact godaddy and they told me they cannot give support to third party code.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Will Pay-Any Joomla Dev. Good with GoDaddy Mysql Databases?

Postby eratl » Mon Sep 22, 2008 1:56 am

Hi,

I had to uninstall Joomla 1.5 on my Godaddy server and reinstall it. When I reinstalled it, it created a new MYsql database which has none of the site content from a senate site. The site has been down for weeks and every time I uninstall Joomla and resinstall it, it creates a new Mysql database which contains none of the data from my site and template.

I tried to import the site content from my original backup of the database into the new, most recent database it created and got this error when going to the site:

jtablesession::Store Failed
DB function failed with error number 1054
Unknown column 'client_id' in 'field list' SQL=INSERT INTO `jos_session` ( `session_id`,`time`,`username`,`gid`,`guest`,`client_id` ) VALUES ( '65abf8a7ffdd7e222da171de5f7cbecf','1222047948','','0','1','0' )

Is there anyone that knows how to import the site data from my original Mysql database into the new one without getting these errors?

Note: I could get the site to pull up with the standard Joomla default templates before I tried to import the original Mysql database. Now when I try to go to the site, I get the above-mentioned errors. I get those same errors when going to my admin login page whereas, I could login in fine before. The default Joomla templates were there before with all the content. When I selected my own template (with all the site content) it came up blank.

I am willing to pay someone a reasonable fee to help fix this fast! It should be someone familiar with Godaddy servers and datebases as well as Mysql in general. Time is of the essence.

One other thing: When I did the import from the backup of my database into the new one created when the reinstall was done, it said the import was successfull yet....I get the above weird messages which I'll repreat here again:

I click on my site name and the name comes up ok but this is what comes up in the window which indicates to me something did not in fact import correctly:


jtablesession::Store Failed
DB function failed with error number 1054
Unknown column 'client_id' in 'field list' SQL=INSERT INTO `jos_session` ( `session_id`,`time`,`username`,`gid`,`guest`,`client_id` ) VALUES ( '65abf8a7ffdd7e222da171de5f7cbecf','1222047948','','0','1','0' )

I'm having very similar errors (person directly above me), and I'm trying to do a manual install. Someone please remind me why it's a good idea to try to do manual install rather than GoDaddy's script installer.

I have a very noob question to ask...

I've uploaded and installed everything successfully on my godaddy.com hosted account, but I can only access my site by entering... www.mysite.com/joomla/

How do I get it to open up at www.mysite.com ?

Any help is greatly appreciated even if it is just pointing me in the right direction somewhere in the manual.

Thanks and Cheers :)

I am having the exact same problem, cant find an answer anywhere.

edit: Figured it out, but i had to uninstall and reinstall. when it asks you where you want to install joomla just choose the root folder, www.yoursite.com instead of www.yoursite.com/joomla .

Where is the control panel located at GoDaddy as far as installing Joomla automatically? They have changed things around since I last logged in, and now I can't find the auto-installer. Does anyone know? Any tips will be much appreciated. Thank you!

Has anyone used Joomlapack? I'm building a site on my computer using Localhost. I'm almost finished with building it. I have my database all setup on my computer, now I need to upload the joomla site I built along with the DB. Do I need to upload the folder with all the Joomla files? If that's the case how do I get the DB I created up on the Godaddy server to reflect what I have done and keep it in tacked? HELP!!!!!

if you have phpmyadmin download from http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/index.php
you can export a copy of the database then upload it to you host account db_backups directory.
open host account manager database > mysql select your database then click on the pencil icon next to it this will open a page with database info you will see a button marked restore click on it then select the sql file you uploaded then click ok it will take a few minutes to restore
you are waiting for it to restore edit configuration.php with the info listed for database.

Thanks for the PDF. I am wondering if I can follow the same steps mentioned to upload a site that I created on my local server. The instructions seem to be pointed towards a fresh install of Joomla!, am I reading this wrong?

When uploading a completed site to Godaddy, is there anything in particular that I should pay attention to?

Thank you
