[Seaside] How to convert a 1.4 Pharo Seaside image so that it will work with seasidehosting.st

So it looks as if seasidehosting does not support the cog vm.

I seem to recall that Pharo-1.4 images only work with the cog vm (I could be wrong).

Converting a vm to a non-cog vm is not possible AFAIK.

Assuming that I'm right you would have to port your seaside app from Pharo-1.4 to Pharo-1.3 to run on seasidehosting which means that you need to export your application as Monticello packages and then load them into a Seaside30 image based on Pharo-1.3 and using a non-cog vm. (you'll probably have better luck loading Seaside30 via configurations on Pharo-1.3, too)... 

OTOH, it is interesting to me that seasidehosting does not support the cog vm ... so it worth pursuing that angle just a bit.

| Hi all,
| after a few weeks of hacking on my first seaside app using Pharo 1.4
| (Mac OS), I was sad to read the following when I tried to deploy it
| to seasidehosting,st:
| >This interpreter (vers. 6502) cannot read image file (vers. 6505)
| >... with the additional explanation:
| >Your image was previously saved by a JIT VM (Cog, Squeak5.x).
| >Due technical reasons, we're currently unable to support such
| >images.
| >Try building your application using a Squeak 3.x/4.x VM.
| My problem is that there are so many versions of Squeak out there and
| so many different ways of getting Seaside, and so far none of them
| have worked for me (e.g. "ConfigurationOfSeaside30 load" fails). I
| google and google and feel I am drifting further away from my goal.
| What is the simplest way for me (e.g. what is available on the
| internet now in July 2012) to convert the image? Preferably on a
| Mac, although I have Virtualboxes for XP and Ubuntu as well.
| Thanks in advance
| Mark
