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:
 
hostingcompany.com/~username     .....     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 your-domain.com with YOUR domain name.
