With all the different ways we can add e-commerce capability to mojoPortal, it’s important to make sure you’ve implemented SSL for your mojoPortal-based website. We’ll go through the steps to order and implement SSL for your mojoPortal site hosted with Arvixe.
Step 1: Make sure you know the domain name you’ll be using. If the site is already live, that’s usually a foregone conclusion, but if it’s not live yet, or you may be using a variant for your e-commerce area, be sure that you’ve got the right domain name identified before you place your order.
Step 2: Send your order via e-mail request to [email protected] – you’ll want to request the SSL cert, as well as an additional IP address. Your request should contain the following info:Learn More

mojoPortal is a robust, full-featured CMS (Content Management System); it’s a featured app in the Windows Web App Gallery, and powers thousands of websites. It comes with a wide range of built-in functionality: forums, blogs, surveys, version control and workflow, and multimedia support. But one of the best reasons to use mojoPortal is the support for plugins that leverage the built-in properties of mojoPortal, and allow extended functionality to be added on to an existing mojoPortal-based site. Today, we’ll cover one of the newest plugins, the MegaGallery plugin by IndigoTea.
MegaGallery is an alternative to the built-in Image Gallery that’s bundled into mojoPortal. While the built-in Image Gallery is a great way to display images, it does have some limitations. MegaGallery allows an unlimited number of galleries and albums to be displayed on a single page, as well as allowing friendly URLs to be created for each album. Because it leverages jCarousel and Gallerific, both jQuery-based, the display can be adjusted via CSS. The slideshow isn’t dependent on Silverlight, allowing users to view it without the need for additional plugins.
To explain how the MegaGallery works, we’ll step through the parts of the process of using MegaGallery to display images.

Firstly I will explain the symptoms I saw and how I resolved the issue. Then I will go on to explain how I managed a more helpful error message which may be useful if you encounter a similar, but not the same, issue.
When I first published a new local website, I navigated to the homepage only to be greeted with the error ‘500 Internal Server Error’. When I tried to open control panel, I found that too was crashing, with the above error.Learn More
