CiviCRM and Drupal 10

As of this writing (January 4, 2023) it’s not possible to install CiviCRM normally on Drupal 10. There is this script: https://lab.civicrm.org/-/snippets/84 that claims to do it, but we tried that and it failed. Instead, we are installing Drupal 9.5.0 with CiviCRM for now, using this: composer create-project drupal/recommended-project:9.5.0 . composer require civicrm/civicrm-{core,packages,drupal-8}:’~5.56′ until the install procedure will be fixed for Drupal 10.

Domain Name Price Change

CiviHosting has always offered domain name registration at cost, meaning we make zero profit. Due to rising costs, and credit card processing fees, we are going to have to change that policy and raise our prices a bit. This change will take affect sometime soon after October 15th, 2022. We unfortunately do not yet know what the new prices will be precisely. The good news is that you still have 30 days to renew your domain name(s) at the current price. You can do that through your Client Area login, which is available through your hosting Control Panel under “Marketplace.”

CiviMobile and Drupal 9

Out of the box, CiviMobile for CiviCRM does not work in Drupal 9. The REST API and Path will fail. This is because certain fails that CiviMobile “expects” are not in place. There is a solution to this here: https://civicrm.stackexchange.com/questions/39730/civimobile-only-shows-events but it didn’t work for us. It almost did, but we needed to make a few changes. Here is how we got this to work: Comment out the line “RewriteRule “^(.+/.*|autoload)\.php($|/)” – [F]” from .htaccess in web root (note this gets overwritten when you use “composer require”). Created web/libraries/civicrm/core/civicrm.config.php file by copying it from https://github.com/civicrm/civicrm-drupal/blob/7.x-master/civicrm.config.php.drupal copied the directory vendor/civicrm/civicrm-core/extern to web/libraries/civicrm/core. Edited civicrm.config.php and added the following at line 86:… Read More

Drupal 7 Support to End in 2023

Drupal 7 is scheduled for EOL (end of life) November of 2023. Here is the official announcement: Drupal 7’s End-of-Life extended to November 1, 2023 – PSA-2022-02-23 That means there will be no further support from the Drupal community, meaning no bug reports, no security patches and no updates for core Drupal nor modules nor themes. It is thus strongly advised to convert any Drupal 7 sites either to Drupal 9, or to WordPress. Both of these CMS tools are supported and are expected to be supported long term. One of the advantages of WordPress over Drupal used to be that all upgrades were “backwards compatible” which means that there… Read More

Another Testimonial

One of our clients offered to provide a testimonial and so of course we agreed. Here is what she wrote: My company implements CiviCRM sites for organisations in the UK and many of them are hosted with CiviHosting. I have been increasingly impressed with the reliability of the hosting, the incredibly helpful support I get both from CiviHosting staff as well as SureSupport, and also how easy to use the control panel is for this hosting. If I’ve ever had queries or issues with one of my sites, they are always able to help me get to the bottom of it. The control panel is a really easy interface for… Read More

Just “Wow” on the support

We received feedback today regarding our Support Team: You’ve heard it before … but SureSupport is amazing. I had some clients who so desperately wanted to use GreenGeeks or SiteGround. What a waste of time. I wasted so many hours with GreenGeeks on the question of “is port 465 blocked?” and the answers were “no no, we don’t block any ports” only to finally discover that the port wasn’t blocked, it was “disabled”! Looking at my recent queue of 10 support requests the average response time is less than 2 minutes, the modal time is less than a minute and the max is 10 minutes. I always thank them and… Read More
