Resolved: Ignore the "If 'https' is selected..." message Cloud auto generates the SSL cert for you. It also appears the redirect from http to https is also happening. Thanks to whomever fixed it. :)

Update: http doesn't work either. The domain when pinged shows the UNA Cloud IP, but it seems like something is not being properly set by the automation when switching from una domain to personal domain.


Not the most helpful of info messages becuase it doesn't say how to perform the "manual SSL setup". 

I'm on Cloud, so how do I get SSL working?



I've Changed DNS at my registrar to my UNA IP Address.

Seems to work fine. When I go to my domain name it directs to my UNA site.

Question 1.

My domain directs to my UNA site but the address bar shows my UNA.co address. I'd like the address bar to show my domain name.

I then changed my address in UNA to my domain name. So I'm wondering if maybe it just takes some time before my domain name shows in the address bar?

Question 2. 

How do I add SSL to my site? Any instructions I've been able to find says I'll need to do this manually.

Thanks so much,


Hello, Thank you for adding me to the group.

I'm in the planning stage and would like suggestions about how to get set up.

I'd like to create a paid membership group. 

My first thought is traffic so my plan is to set up my main domain with articles for SEO with a sales page/landing page as my homepage.

The main domain will be hosted at my current hosting account.

So I'm thinking...I'd like to set up a blog on the main domain name...then create a sub-domain and re-direct it to my UNA hosted social site.

Is this a good way to set this up? 

My current hosting handles the SSL...if I set up a subdomain and re-direct it to my UNA hosted site will it mess up the SSL my current hosting sets up.

Any suggestions and ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks, Deb

I get this Error message when attempting to install UNA

"Database connect failed"

Have done this "$this->pdoExec("SET default_storage_engine=" . $this->_sStorageEngine); " but getting the same error messages!

"allow_url_include is on (you need to disable it, or your site will be unsafe)"

Hi Guys, 

Got the above message. Any idea how to resolve it?
