Any luck installing on a Hostgator shared hosting account?

I’d love to get started using Grav, but i run into this problem with my shared hosting account on Hostgator

-jailshell: bin/gpm: Permission denied

I contacted support directly and they weren’t able to give me a solution. Has anyone in a similar situation managed to successfully install on Hostgator, or does having a shared hosting account mean I am forever limited to jailshell?

Not quite sure what “jailshell” is, but I presume it is an SSH-interface. The error, however, indicates that bin/gpm has incorrect permission. Try setting them to 755 or 775.

Simply install Grav manually. Very easy.

I am having issues getting the admin to work on hostgator. Installing Grav core went simple enough but manually installing the admin following the information at did not work.

I am getting the following error:

Whoops\Exception\ErrorException thrown with message “PHP Startup: SourceGuardian: Unable to initialize module
Module compiled with module API=20100525
PHP compiled with module API=20121212
These options need to match

#0 Whoops\Exception\ErrorException in Unknown:0

Thanks for any advice on fixing this.

SourceGuardian is something that is installed by HostGator, and not something that Grav needs. The error looks like there is a mismatch between the version of the plugin installed, and the one needed by the version of PHP you are running.

You should contact HostGator support to resolve this as the problem is on their end.

Thank you. I will see what they say.

I found an article on google where others had similar issues with updating from previous version of php to php 5 with the SourceGuardian error. I updated to php 5.6 and I am in the admin. thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
