Phpwebsite install probs

apps

#1

Hi,

For the past few days, I’ve been trying to install an open source CMS called phpwebsite (http://phpwebsite.appstate.edu),
which uses MySQL and Apache. It has an automated Web-based and somewhat documented installation program.

At any rate, during and after the Web-based install, I start getting several error messages. Apparently, something in the DH setup or permissions is different than what the install/program is expecting, which is causing some problems. All the error messages seem to reference a non-existent .absolute path. At least one DH user has successfully installed phpwebsite and is running it. Please let me know if you have some ideas about the problem(s) and fix(es).

Thanks,

Rick
