Server Move Successful!

If you’re seeing this, that means you’ve successfully reached our new home with! Or rather, you reached the home of the NEW, would be much more accurate.

We’ve not quite set that up yet, but we’ll get there.

So, you may be wondering: “Why?”

Well, that’s an easy thing to answer. Because our old hosting plan couldn’t handle M&F in all it’s glory. We managed to hit the memory limit trying to install it, so we could have a proper test server. 😀

So we’re on a new plan, on a different server, that has the added benefit of fewer restrictions! This means that we’ll be able to do other cool things that we couldn’t before (like host our own chat server) and we’ll be able to do other things even better.

I know the last post said I wanted to figure out what I forgot to add to this, but I’m going to skip that actually. I will be making a nice actual guide on how to do this, so I’ll figure it all out again then and in a nice list order thing. 90% of the steps are on here anyways.

Let’s get back to getting this thing going. I suppose we should get in the right spot at least:

cd /var/www/html/maf/

Oh yes!

app/console doctrine:schema:create

And then we get… Continue reading “Setting up a Test Server – Part 06/??”

Setting up a Test Server – Part 05/??

We’re getting so close to having this thing operational, I can taste it, and it tastes like Monster Import. That, or that’s what I’m drinking. It’s 4AM and I don’t know anymore. But I don’t need to know, I just need to figure out how to server! And that, I can do.

When we left off we had two silly errors complaining about the server not being able to write to some folders. Resolution? Continue reading “Setting up a Test Server – Part 05/??”
