How do I set up my synthasite webpage on my webserver?

I downloaded my synthasite-generated site in order to get it up and running on my webserver (hosted by Powweb). I do have PHP 5.2.x installed and enabled and followed the other instructions on the readme file (that came in the zip file along with my site) as best I could.

If I type in my web address (cosmicsensorium.com) I get "No input file specified". If I type in cosmicsensorium.com/index.php, I can see the index page and follow that to other pages that only have text. Nonetheless, my photo galleries and store do not come out at all.

I guess the issue might have to do with the installation of SQLite3, not sure if I did that correctly and the tech person from my hosting company said they didn't really provide help with 3rd party applications.

Any help is much appreciated!!!! Thanks and I love synthasite!!

I really wish I could help you with this. But to be honest I would not know where to begin. It is a challenge to make sure that third party services like PayPal run correctly on our own servers. It is nearly impossible for us to make sure that they work on hosting environments to which we do not have access. If you do not elect to host your site with us, we are only in a position to give to make your site available for download and provide the most basic instructions. And from your description it sounds like you have already followed these to the letter.

This really is an area where we need our community to assist us. If people are hosting their sites elsewhere and have had success, or faced similar problems and overcome them then it would be great if they could share this information.

As always we invite you to use SynthaSite's free hosting so that we can offer you quality support for every aspect of building, publishing and hosting your site.

Monique, thanks for your reply!

I think that maybe helping me make sure I installed SQLite3 correctly might help out? This is the only part of the installation process that I think was a little problematic - I'm not even sure if SQLite3 is up and running... Is there any way of having Synthasite-generated pages work with MySQL isntead of SQLite3?

Thanks again!
