Editing configuration files

Just in case you find yourself manually editing some of the Configuration files (which is rare, but still…), be very careful not to add any extra blank lines at the start or end of the files. For some very tricky reasons, this may cause your cookies to fail where needed in the app, and you won’t know why. See also: "Warning: Cannot modify header information"

Completing the installation / upgrade

Once your installation is done and basically works, there are still a few tricky things you should watch for:

  • Check that the installer was able to correctly install your .htaccess File.

Tighten security

On public / production servers, you’ll want to do the following for optimal security of your system:

  • Use your FTP client to delete the /install folder. This will prevent others from possibly overwriting your settings.


  • If you just installed, this is not critical right now, but keep in mind we have a whole page about Performance Optimization which will help you greatly enhance the performance of your system by tuning your server configuration. Make a note for later because this can really help b2evolution run up to 10 times faster, depending on how your server is currently configured.
