So great news. Managed to duplicate the process. The main points would be the PHP version and uploading the fully extracted files - although this is a very long process. From there either sub.mysite.com or mysite.com/ninja/public will allow access to the setup. I’ve taken screenshots along the way and will upload for you to use/integrate into your own documentation. While this will be specific to HostGator and the current version of InvoiceNinja, it may be able to help others that have had issues getting it setup.
Notation should also be that this version needs PHP7 or higher. I forgot to look at the requirements on the site.
Once this is done it’s fine. Again - thanks for the great support guys - keep up the good work!
So I’ve done a first draft of the document. Please get in touch with me so I can send it to you directly if you want the info to be placed on your site. I’m going to format it and place it elsewhere with the necessary references made. Thanks again guys!
Both links have the same information. What I was unaware of would be that it’s the EasyApache 3 and not 4 commands that I’d need to run. Not sure where the difference would be, but for my shared hosting I needed the 3 commands.
OK - so now I’m going to update the documentation to have this last bit of detail.
As a side-question: how does the Endless Reminder work? Let me give a scenario.
If I’m migrating from another app and created an invoice that is already overdue - sent out the email using the 3rd reminder template - will the system automatically send a new email next week? And will it then continue to send out every week thereafter?
The information below didn’t give me much details to answer that.
The frequency can’t be less than weekly. The options are:
Under ENDLESS the options are:
There was another link where someone wanted more frequent reminders, but that doesn’t look possible. While I think weekly should be fine, I’d like to set it more frequently for initial testing on the invoice I sent to myself. Still it’s almost the weekend, so I should know by Monday next week. That is assuming the reminders are sent on Mondays and not Sundays.
Hi guys. Thanks again. TBH I wanted you to look over the info before I published, but I didn’t get any feedback. Here is the link - let me know if there are any changes you’d make and I’ll get them done.
Thanks @billyggla. I always put up info to try and help - especially when I find it difficult or if I can’t find the resources anywhere. I’m not much into software (I did Pascal programming back in 1996 but that was it) and while I have a (fair I think) technical background, the web setup and applications are hard. I’d expect someone running their own Windows or Linux server on a VPS or at home to have enough knowledge on how to get things done. Technology moves very quickly and while you can find lots of resources, it’s helpful when it’s easily accessible.
Going forward persons visiting here (or doing Google searches) should find a pretty straightforward step-by-step set of instructions that should help them get going.
As I said - if Hillel or any other mod for this site would like to use the content I’ve put up to add to the manual - I have no objections to that. All the better to help others that have my level (or lower) in these kind of setups.
Again - thank you guys very much for your time and assistance in getting this done. Keep up the good work!
Hi there. This topic has been resolved as the issue is with v4. Your issue with v5 should be posted in that area - please see my link below. Hopefully we can get this resolved.
To somewhat address your issue - that version of PHP is being retired and version 7.3 or higher may be required. You should check your cPanel for the “PHP SELECTOR” or something similar (not using HostGator currently) and maybe you can change the PHP version. If that doesn’t help then please post in the new thread linked above.
