Common Questions

1. Multiple Lunarpages Accounts - Each account that wants to use the Weebly website builder will have to have a unique email address associated with their main account. Clients can still have multiple Weebly plans under their main account, however if a client has a 2nd account with us and they attempt to start a Weebly plan under the 2nd account it will error out until they provide a different unique email address for that 2nd account.

2. Using Weebly for add-on domains - Before using Weebly website builder for an add-on domain you must first create a new folder under the public_html/ for each add-on domain as you will need to specify the (Site root path:) of the created folder to provision your new Weebly site (or you will overwrite any existing files in the default path.) Also you must point your add-on domains DNS to your name servers so your site will show online.

3. What if I already used my email at another host? - If you have in the past used your email address at another host for Weebly you will have to use an alternate email address in order to use the Weebly site builder managed by Lunarpages.

4. DNS Domain not showing online - If your DNS has not been setup or propagated yet after you publish your Weebly site you can add your shared servers IP to your hosts file to view your site online before that has completed.

EXP Host file entry:

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx yourdomain.com

Host File Location:

Windows 7, 8 = Windows (C:) > Windows > System32 > drivers > etc > hostsfile
Mac OS X = /private/etc/hosts </br>

5. PHP VERSION REQUIREMENTS - In order for your weebly site to publish correctly PHP 5.3.x needs to be enabled in your account or it will only publish text.
