    Oh gosh! Help with an installation? Really? Good for you that Elgg works. But the focus here is all the ones that can't. Nah - This is second time. I'm done with Elgg... view reply

    Look at the amount of people that can't get the installation to run smoothly. Do a search. I am not the only one. If it is working fine, how come it doesn't work for me? Arrogance is ugly and actually i saw the same arrogance last... view reply

    1) Uploaded the whole thing with FTP 2) Upon beginning installation I get message "No input file specified."     I bypass this by using the HTACCESS file from wordpress (this should not even happen) 3) I finally figured out...

      Other people are able to get it working with the help of this community only. There might be challenges but its not like that it cannot be solved.

      Arrogance is ugly and actually i saw the same arrogance last time I addressed the issue. Great that the coding geeks can make things work, but for the normal people - it's useless and a waste of time to invest time in a faulty installation process.

       People are happy to help here. That's how opensource work. I am running 3 website on elgg and all of them are working perfectly fine. It's not just geek, normal people are also using it.

      Try UNA from Boonex. Smooth and easy, followed by an explosive system. You'll see what I mean.

      I did tried lots of CMS myself and finally settled on elgg because all those CMS were not as per my requirement as there were lot of functionality missing. Elgg has the functionality that allow someone to easily develop new features. Thats the main thing that attracted me to use elgg.

      Infact I recently participated in a hackathon where I used Elgg 3.0 RC2 as a framework and tried to integrate block chain on it, and it went really well. Show me other CMS that gives you such freedom.

      Again, do share something like error logs that will help other to help you.

    I jumped to Known (https://withknown.com/) instead. Installation was smooth and easy. Interface immensely friendly... And support is actually helpful, responsive and non-arrogant. I will have about 14 million users, being happy with Known. view reply
