Introduction

Hey all,

new here. I've been doing a lot of Wordpress stuff, bilingual mostly. but ultimately annoyed with Wordress' lack of multilingual capabilities - which brought me here.

For now I'm very pleased with Ionize although it seems to be fairly slow on a local XAMPP install.

Cheers,
gfaw

Re: Introduction

Hey @Kink,

thanks for the link - I want to go location-independent so 100% online is not for me, but I'll have a closer look anyway. For the location independence I currently migrate from Windows + XAMPP to Ubuntu + Virtualbox, but needs some testing and still have some projects running on the old dev. environment! As for speed: yeah, I'll need to check on a real server. Do you have any experiences with Shared hosting? Most of my clients host themselves and they're rather small, so they go with shared.

Also, where can I learn more about developing on and migrating existing content to Ionize? I've opened a thread for this here: http://ionizecms.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=8135#p8135

Re: Introduction

Yes, some of website i made are hosted with 1&1 or OVH (shared hosting) without problem.

Now, i have a huge dedicated server hosted by Online.net on Debian Wheezy with ISPConfig. All Ionize websites are very very fast.

I have no experience in migrating website to Ionize, it's my strategy : if client want new en modern website, they must bank, and i create new fresh website tongue
Anyway, i think, it's not possible to migrate. But, you can get the template and datas (content, pictures...).
And then like me, create a new website with those template.

Perhaps, a day, it will be possible to migrate wordpress to Ionize, but for now, it's too difficult tongue

Of course you had to recreate the site structure reupload media etc. The thing I wonder is what happens if I set up IOnize unter dev.example.com and later change it to www.example.com? yikes

Re: Introduction

What happen ?
Nothing. You have nothing to do, except editing configuration for database. Ionize (CodeIgniter) check the base url.
