What we did recently was just to upload the upgrade files to come from 4 to 5.8. Before that the site worked fine.
So you have done all the mistakes by yourself ;)

I hope you made a backup before the update? In this case you could restore the old site and try it again. It is easy: Copy all files and folders of the extracted download to the installation folder of your CMSimple (CMSimpleRoot). You should find them in a folder "CMSimple_Update_4-0_5-8" after unzip the download.

I have one more question: The webpages that we have (in the backup) how and where are they represented in the server file system?
If you do not know that, it is not a wonder, that the update is gone wrong ...

YOU have to know the CMSimpleRoot Folder (Installation folder) of your website, BEFORE you upload anything to your file system.

Sorry, but I do not know your Webserver.

To learn more about the file structure of CMSimple, have a look about the extracted download,

Well, I don't mind taking the blame. But I'm pretty sure I made the update installation correct.
Anyway, as I'm very new to CMS there is a lot I have to learn ;)

Yes, I did make a backup ;)
But I followed you earlier advice and installed an xamp server on my laptop, installed latest version of CMSimple as a virtual root, installed the old tamplate and reconfigued it to fit our needs.

As I didn't feel comfortable with the content and pagedata file formats related to our webpages, I recreated all our web pages. And I did update the server with this new version and now the server is running perfectly and works as it should, including providing a menu icon when the display is small, e.g. on a mobile phone :D

But if you have a liitle more parience with me, I'm having little trouble getting the mailform service to run. I have configured an email address in CMS config and get the form displayed correctly. But submitting it results in no email :?:

The email address configured in CMS is that a To: adresss or a mail server address which the web hosting provider probably would hand out?

Our provider recommends using php's mail() function, but I can not really resolve where and if the mailform in CMS results in calling this php function?

Yours,

Is the mail address a domain own address? More and more webservers accept only domain own addresses:

mail@your_domain.tld

I sent yo a testmail by your mailform on your website, have you gotten it? The mailform says "Beskeden er blevet sendt".

The standard mailform of CMSimple uses the function mail(),

Ok, I know it has nothing to do with CMSimple, but perhaps you have experience in this problem and could help:

The emails sendt in the contact form is available in the email account at the provider, so i works as expected. I alse see the test email you entered. The provide claims that they have setup forwarding these to my private gmail address.

But I never receive any nor see these in my spam folder. My provider claims that gmail/google have very strict filters regarding such forwarded emails and that's why I don't receive them.

Have you experience in this issue? I know that it has nothing to do with CMSimple but if you can help it will be very much appriciated :)

Unfortunately not, I don't use google or gmail addresses.

And I have very strict manual filters :mrgreen: regarding google or gmail addresses. If someone registers to this forum with such a mail address, I ask for confirmation, before I create the account ...
