Open Social hosting first steps

I am new to Drupal and VPS's. I know cpanel and 1 click cms installs.

I am super keen to make a Drupal Open Social site.

I would like some advice on which VPS host to go with ?
Digital Ocean, Heroku, Vultr etc
Are any better then the other for newbies ?
Are any better for Drupal ?

Thinking 5 or $10 per month to start with.

Thanks very much.

Change from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.0

Drupal 8.2.x was running good.

Now, the provider changed from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.0 and most applications on the domain still work.

But on our site of www / drupal we only can read:

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.

What happened, what can we do, how login again?


Not able to run phpunit test

I am using Drupal 8.2.6 and trying to run phpunit tests. I have successfully installed phpunit 4.1.* using composer.
But when I am trying to run:

cd core
phpunit --testsuite=unit

I am getting following error:

PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined method Drupal\Tests\Component\Render\PlainTextOutputTest::prophesize() in /var/www/html/drupal/core/tests/Drupal/Tests/Component/Render/PlainTextOutputTest.php on line 50

Do anyone know what I am missing.

PDF Files - Lightning vs. Non-Lightning


Having a strange issue:

I’ve installed a default 8.x Drupal on my GoDaddy-hosted site. On my local Acquia-developed site, I used the Lightning distribution. I can access and use PDF files as images with no problem on my local developed site. Despite bringing in the Lightning modules to my hosted site, I get errors when trying to use a PDF file in an image field.

Not sure why or what I’m missing.

Any clues or starting points for my investigation?


PHP in VIEWS Contextual Filter Drupal 8

I had this site running on Drupal 6 updating to Drupal 8.
On Drupal 6 and 7 I know you have the option to have PHP code under WHEN FILTER VALUE IS NOT AVAILABLE provide a default value.
Drupal 8 doesn't seem to have the option to have PHP code.
Am I missing something? Is there a way to get the option for PHP code into a Contextual Filter.
