[Michael] Hi, I just finished installing ushahidi api and platform-client. My api returns the JSON result when I append api/v3/config to the URL. However, when I enter the client URL: http://188.8.131.52:3000, I get three bouncing balls that never stop, and nothing ever happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The BACKEND_URL in my platform-client .env file is http://184.108.40.206/platform/platform/httpdocs
[Brad Anthony] Christopher, yes it works. But it takes some additional tweaking. So I've been informed recently.
[Christopher Ndolo] I am hosting my app on a shared hostgator account which is running CENTOS. I am having difficulties running the migrations. Do you know how to? The current commands don't seem to work for me.
[Brad Anthony] We were never able to get it running on shared hosting due to some account restraints. Not on Host Gator, mind you. But the problems might be the same.
[Brad Anthony] In the end we had to have our own VPS and cloud for the necessary setup.
[Christopher Ndolo] which one do you recommend?
[Brad Anthony] We use Dreamhost specifically for their VPS and cloud services. By far the best company I've ever worked with.
[Brad Anthony] Their admin dashboard is a bit different and doesn't use Cpanel or any of that other junk software. It's really clean and takes a bit of getting use to. But once you're comfortable using it, everything is really fast and smooth.
[Christopher Ndolo] Thanks a lot. so you recommend i get the vps hosting?
[Brad Anthony] The VPS has worked quite well for us. But recently we've bumped up to their DreamCompute cloud and have three instances of Ushahidi running there on CentOS. Our developers prefer the cloud over the VPS but why exactly is above my pay grade. :-)
[Christopher Ndolo] Thanks for the info Brad. I think for know I will start with the VPS and upgrade later on...
[Brad Anthony] All our regular sites run on the VPS and Ushihidi on cloud uses the open stack cloud admin panel which seems decent, in my limited experience.
