Community site: login faq

Hey there!

I just tested to create a Joomla and a Drupal application. When i click create Application the wheel starts spinning and after some seconds I get following message at the top left:

There was an error creating the app with the custom script.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

thx in advance

Check that your account name plus your application name does not exceed 16 characters, for example:

account_application

This is because WebFaction has a limit of 16 characters for database names and if your account_application is more than this limit, the installation will fail.
