WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hey guys,

I've been trying to get Craft to work with webfaction but I'm getting an error when trying to log-in into the backend. As I uploaded a local version all the content seems to appear just fine.

Here's my error message:

Your server doesn’t meet the following requirements to run Craft: MySQL 5.1.0 or higher is required to run Craft.

Is there any way to upgrade my MySQL on this single site? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Best,

Rob

CentOS 5 machines are running version 5.0.95 currently and CentOS 6 machine are running 5.5.35. You can either migrate to a CentOS 6 machine to get a newer version of MySQL or install a custom installation of MySQL into your account from source.

Further to this. I am wanting to install the Craft CMS. It requires that the craft/ dir be installed one directory up from public/ dir. How can we do this in Webfaction i.e. create a dir one up from the pubic directory?

You would have to create a directory for this somewhere in your home directory, than use a 'symbolic link to static only' type app to point to the child path.

I'm late to this party, but I wrote a blog post about setting Craft up on Webfaction that @baba may be interested in: http://workingconcept.com/blog/webfaction-craft
