My Koken web site used to work like a charm ! And the 0.16.x branch came. Times out, data loss and so on. I spent so many times trying to make my web site available again. Pure time loss. I backuped everything and decided to re-install everything

Fresh install (0.17.2) went fine, every steps were green. Some setup, categories, albums and so on were ok. Time to re-upload my FIRST picture ! Bam, time out ! I let the upload process finish... and guess what, categories, albums, etc.. are lost again !

So come on, you guys have a wonderful product with Koken ! But data loss is unacceptable !

My hosting is Gandi, so nothing exotic, Koken used to work perfectly before.

My web site is, I already sent my ids to your support.

Please, fix this now (excuse me if i am rude but i already spent so many times on trying to make it work, with no results !)

Im not one of the "Koken guys", but did you purge the SQL database before reinstalling koken? Or better, create a second database to use with your fresh installation of koken.

Everything was purged before fresh install !

My hosting is Gandi "Simple hosting" and i suspect Koken to be in trouble with Varnish (which is installed on this kind of offer). But it should work !

Arnaud – So is this resolved or are you still having issues?

Yes, I still have many issues. The last one is the update to 0.17.3 that hangs while i'm writing this messages. And, yes i have lost all my categories one more time.

I really think this is a kind of varnish issue. Perhaps.

I think so too. I’d recommend disabling Varnish for the Koken folder to see if that is indeed the issue and then we can go from there.

After so many tries, swapping graphic libraries, disabling every caches i can, i can say that Koken is a dead end for me.

Any other Koken user on a Gandi Simple Hosting ? Help ?

I will search for an alternative now...
