Installing on cPanel hosting and using a temporary URL

If you are installing Sytist on cPanel hosting and your domain name is not pointing to that hosting yet,  you can still install using the cPanel  temporary URL.
A cPanel temporary URL is a URL your hosting company will send you that you can use until your domain is pointed to that hosting that looks something like this:     .....     or 68.554.23.21/~username
On the installation page in Sytist, check the checkbox indicating your are installing on a temporary URL. Enter in /~username in the field.
username = your cPanel username
If you have already installed and need to add the temporary URL, download the sy-config.php file and add the following line of code to a blank line:
$setup['temp_url_folder'] = "/~username";

When your domain is active on the hosting account.

Once you have your domain name pointing to your hosting, you will need to download the sy-config.php file to your computer and open it in a text editor like notepad.
Remove the "$setup['temp_url_folder'] = "/~username";" line, save and re-upload.
Also, you will need to create and upload a .htaccess file.  The .htaccess file needs to contain the follow. Replace with YOUR domain name.
ErrorDocument 404 /404.php

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^($ [NC]
