This is completely new and surf as a suggestion.

I feel like quitting and often wonder how I can get around this. The UNA community serves only one or two purposes, and that is to maintain its open source and paid modules. Surely this product has open doors for many, many who depends on procuring essential modules to complete their overall scope of work, which in turn will pay off in the form of generating an income from their sites.

Some of us already climbing the leader financially, but still needs to keep a close relationship with UNA due to maintenance and upgrades. Me on the other hand solely rely on the help of other even to make ends meets. I would say that we have two categories within our UNA community, besides our developers.

Successful UNA Entrepreneurs versus Us who are in the initial stage and could have financial struggles.

What I have in mind will super boost UNA Financially and at the same time fast-track upcoming UNA Entrepreneurs, enabling them to re-invest back into UNA by means of this. Closer relationship will be developed etc.

I need some essential modules and my site is far from generating an income. I once received help from one of my fellow UNA members and utilized it 100%, but I could have spent that money otherwise. Thank God I stayed focused and secure 12 months of hosting etc. More help was given to me, but I wish to keep this short.

I require so much more and was wondering if we can help each other. Successful UNA Entrepreneurs sponsor those in need, not with money, but by purchasing them a module or two. This is not compulsory, but if it is in their hearts to do so, yes.

We can keep records of this, and as a responsible UNA Member can we repay this favor in the form of helping other upcoming UNA members, furthermore, can we either repay those who has helped us.

The Indians has an old saying, that money stays in the family. We all benefit, maybe if it is okay with UNA and financials proves a double in turnover, they might consider discounts to those offering help and surely balance out what they have invested in doing so.

Example: I need the following. Let me keep the list short for now:-

Paid Levels


Business listings

Job Listing



Well, if this sounds crazy, I can understand.

See my whole story attached as an fundraising.

Kind Regards

I had some challenging years behind my back and when I made the decision to go with UNA, I experience something I never thought of.

All passels fall into place and my nightmare was over. More importantly, and I have to share this with everyone. I prayed a lot out of confusion and for the near fact that money was an issue to me. Never to know that the people behind the scenes of UNA appeared more and more to me like angels from GOD. Even though I know they have their struggles in life like ordinary people and also pray from time to time.

The product on its own is a dealbreaker beyond industry standards. But I think it because of those who drive it. They magnificent and blessed with knowledge beyond our imagination. I had my fair share with one of them who we all know, Andrey Yasko a brilliant mind and kind-hearted individual. But let's get the record straight. I truly believe that like-minded people associate with each other, so it counts for the rest of them and not to, let alone their dedication to make our lives easier.

I hereby want to wish them Merry Christmas as if they like my own family, because they are, and all the best for new year 2024. It belongs to them.

God bless and thank you...

Hi Guys;

What the hell can be the problem. This afternoon PavelS fixed my HTTP ERROR 500 problem that was caused by an outdated module (Scroll To Top Lite).

Well, I later on run another Server Audit and still, deflate_module appear to be not installed. I decided to reinstall UNA and that didn't work.

So, I logged a new ticket with TMDHosting, I am under the impression that they host quite a number of UNA clients.....seems not the case, because they should have known better...just saying.

See reply below from them :



Thank you for the update!

As documented in the ticket with ID 896870, our team has provided a comprehensive explanation confirming the presence and activation of the deflate_module on our server.

If your application still fails to detect it even after reinstallation, there is a necessity to contact its developers or maintainers for further guidance on this matter.

Please, do not hesitate to contact us again if we could be of any further assistance!

Best Regards,

Hi Guys;

These last couple of days has been challenging, thinking I could have caused the problem.

I've integrated bootstrap html and changed some of class names since it overflowed with UNA. I have also used some of the html output from the UNA site and reference the css in my designer injection - head.

Well, I began to get the HTTP error 500 , but I also upgraded in the same time to UNA 13.1.0-RC1.

When I did a server audit from my dashboard, I noticed deflate_module was not installed, but it was according to TMDHosting.

I made a fundamental decision and re-installed UNA to the base version and only upgrade to 13.1.0-B1, hoping it will solve the problem, and this time around I kept UNA install clean.

To be very specific, I added "New Discussion" to my home page(Timeline), I downloaded and installed the Antispam, followed by Medlemmarna from the photo category, but this one did not download, even trying a second time.

The http error 500 mostly occur on the home page (Timeline)

I logged a ticket with TMDHosting first and this is what they wrote to me:


Thank you for your patience up until now!

We have reviewed your request and would like to provide you with the following information regarding the issue.

During the further investigation of the server and website, we haven’t found any issues with the deflate module on the server, below we would like to provide you with additional confirmation that deflate_module is enabled:

# httpd -t -D DUMP_MODULES |grep deflate
 deflate_module (shared)

Considering this, the issue might be related to a visual bug from the UNA script end or any other script-end issues. Here we would like to mention that this issue does not reflect any critical issues with your websites but just indicates lower website performance. Nevertheless, we have added deflate compression rules to .htaccess file of your website using the following instructions:

In case the deflate module was disabled, these rules would make your website fully inaccessible due to Apache error, but as we can see, your website is operational.

Additionally, In case you face any further issues with your websites, we would kindly ask you to open a new ticket, as due to the excessive number of replies in the current ticket, it became hard to trace the ticket properly.

Please, do not hesitate to contact us again if we could be of any further assistance!

Hi Everyone;

I am at a very critical stage of my platform configuration and some of the reading in docs can be very challenging though. The recent video Andrey made of "Group Feeds" was quite helpful and open an understanding on other areas like the submenu and how we can twig it to feature with the other items and how to use it in the new page etc.

Maybe we do have some video tutorials. I subscribed to the UNA Youtube channel, but I don't see videos to that extend.

I don't want to spam our community with silly questions...

I am trying very hard to understand the permission and role modules. To my understanding can I say that permission are build-in system groups whereas roles can be more seen as collective permission tied up in a role. Don't really know...

Boy!!!!! can I thank you guys one more time for this awesome system. The more I navigate through it while building my solution, the more I realize that I made the best decision ever, after years of searching and test-driving hundreds of similar products ......wait this is so much more than what I expected....CMS, Social Networking - UNA has redefine what deemed to be ......I am not so sure if there is any other product that can compete with UNA. The rating on  Softaculous in totally incorrect.

Hi guys;

I've been busy since my installation.

When TMDHosting installed UNA for me since it came with the package I bought with them, they installed Version: 13.0.0 on  9 Sep 2023.

I have activated auto update and even the force feature even though changes were made.

I asked them to upgrade but could not,

Strangely the upgrade button does not feature in my dashboard.

Any advice will be of great help to me.

Thanks in advance for I know our experts are always willing to assist :-)
