problems with WA_Globals.php

The WA_Globals.php file for the PowerCMS version 102 is this (as it comes in a fresh download):

$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "Admin Site Title" ;

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/PowerCMS folder/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your local testing server.
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/PowerCMS folder/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your remote server.

// Admin Settings
$WAGLOBAL_Admin_UserName = "Please enter your admin username" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Admin_Password = "Please enter your admin password" ;

So as your CMS files and folders have been put in a folder on your remote server called 'CMS', the WA_Globals.php file you will upload to your remote site will be:

$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "Admin Site Title" ;

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/CMS/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your local testing server.
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/CMS/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your remote server.

// Admin Settings
$WAGLOBAL_Admin_UserName = "youradminusername" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Admin_Password = "youradminpassword" ;

Don't forget to enter your own Admin username and Password.

Your CMS folder is correct, because if you go to your admin help page, you can see the correct path in the browser address bar.

If you replace 'help.php' with 'index.php' I see a blank page which indicates that there is a problem with that page. I should see a login page.

If I go directly to: users_login.php , then I see the login page.

First thing I would try would be to add error reporting code:


to the very beginning of your CMS/admin/index.php page and re-upload it, and hopefully this should print out to the page what error is preventing the page from loading. This may help us to diagnose your problem.

My second suggestion would be to just re-upload afresh PowerCMS files and folders to the CMS directory on your remote site, having altered the WA_Globals php file as above.

The pdf you refer to is outdated and should have been replaced, and yes - that does add to the confusion.
