Moving forward with Composr

ocPortal has been relaunched as Composr CMS. ocPortal 9 is superseded by Composr 10.

Head over to for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

Installing ocPortal on The Rackspace Cloud

When installing ocPortal on The Rackspace Cloud, it is possible that the install.php script may 'time out' during the installation process. If this happens, you will be presented with a white screen. This occurs because the install.php script is trying to install more files than The Rackspace Cloud's infrastructure can handle.

You can follow the steps below to force the install.php script into 'FTP mode', and instruct it to install fewer files at a time:
  • Open your FTP client and find install.php
  • Access the permissions for the file, and remove write access for the owner, group, and others (the UNIX code for this is 444)
  • Open install.php in your browser
  • Follow the installation steps as normal until you reach step 4
  • At this step, change the Number of files per cycle option to a low number, like 50
  • Proceed with the installation
