This website is based on the upcoming changes of the elabs Rails engine. Everything's not fine, but you can see the changes coming in the next releases.

I spent some time figuring out why the setup of ExperimentsLabs wasn't going on with an OVH "perso" hosting plan.

Today is a big day: the Elabs CMS has barely the required features to run as a public website (with no registration enabled for now). So i changed the repo on GitHub to a public repo, made some last commits in a rush and uploaded everything here.

And it wasn't working.

After hours spent searching and editing the wrong files, the solution popped out: edit the .ovhconfig file (in the dir parent to www) this way:

app.engine=phpcgi
app.engine.version=5.6
http.firewall=none
environment=production

All of that because I use empty() in some statements, and PHP 4, the default on OVH servers, throws an error.

It's time to open an issue ;)
