Installing the blog module

Por Benoit - Categorías : Tutorials

Tip: Always remember to create a backup of your database when you are installing or updating a module.

To install this module, you just need to go to your backoffice and to send the file that you have just downloaded. (Do not use your FTP). To send the file, click on the button “add new module” in the top right hand corner of your interface. Then click “Browse” to locate your file and send it. Then click on the install button located to the right of the module’s name. If you are not automatically redirected to the module, use the tab that was just created in your quick access list to directly access the blog.

If you have an issue for uploading the zip, your hosting is probably limiting this. For correct this, just modify the value above in your php.ini on your hosting.

memory_limit = 32M
upload_max_filesize = 24M
post_max_size = 32M

You have access to a new interface with 5 tabs and information relating to your newly installed blog.(comments pending, latest articles, statistics) Don’t forget to disable the cache option in your boutique and to regenerate the tpl files so you can see all the changes made by the module. To do this, go to your backoffice: Advanced setting > Performance

Template cache: Enable Force compilation each time
In Cache: Disable the option and click on clear the Smarty cache.

Don’t forget to change the options back to how they were before once the module is installed and the template is how you want it.

After installing, if you have a 404 error on the front office, It’s generaly come from a module or old wordpress badly uninstalled.
Verify if :

  • You don’t have allready a blog folder on your ftp
  • Your htaccess (must not have any blog mention)
  • If an old blog is correctly uninstalled.
  • If there is not any htaccess file in the modules folder with blog mention in it.
