install successful? with some differences
Running on a shared LAMP hosting environment.
In my never ending quest to find a more efficient way to handle a database driven site, I've been reading a good bit about OOP and specifically about ezPublish from Harry Fuecks article on Sitepoint at http://www.webmasterbase.com/printTemplate.php?aid=917
I downloaded the 3.0 beta release version 4 -- ezPublish-2.9-6.zip Thanks to help from Melissa, I moved the zip file to my /big/dom/xcoastaloutdoors/www folder and used Telnet to unzip the file.
Tried following Harry's instructions but didn't quite get me there.
Tried these instructions but didn't accomplish the goal.
In step 7 of the Windows installation above, we used a DOS batch file to create the cache directories. The Linux equivalent is the file called modfix.sh, which you can run by changing the [eZ publish_root] on your server and typing:
Note this file also sets up security permissions on the cache directories which are not entirely secure (although the risk is low). And alternative secure_modfix.sh exists, but you'll probably run into trouble if you use this in a typical shared Linux environment.
To make use of Image Magick, the convert binary needs to be installed on the Web server. Time to beg your Web host for a favour (it's not hard for them to install), and get them to tell you where they put it.
So, this is what I did -- used CuteFTP to chmod the files below:
chmod settings 777
chmod var 777
chmod var/storage 777
chmod var/cache 777
chmod var/log 777
chmod var/cache/texttoimage 777
chmod var/cache/ini 777
chmod var/cache/template 777
chmod var/cache/template/tree 777
chmod var/cache/template/process 777
I got to the "create database" stage, "check to install demo data" but only got a blank page.
Looked for the sql file --- found in /kernel/mysql/ downloaded both demokernel.sql and kernel_clean.sql, Decided to use the demokernel.sql file. Used phpmyadmin to upload the sql a few hundred lines at the time since there are in excess of 10,000 lines in the demokernel.sql and phpmyadmin times out at 30 seconds on my server.
Anyway once that was completed, backed up, refreshed, and selected "Continue and skip database initialization."
Got as far as the "send registration" and am sending these comments -- an apparently successful install I hope.
I was able to login to the admin site. That's all I'm going to do tonight -- need to get at least a couple hours of sleep. The speed appears to be pretty good. If anyone is interested, I'll keep you posted on my progress. Haven't gotten around to the Image Magick part yet.
One question, should I be able to see anything beyond the admin site at this point?
