Somes issues getting started with Power CMS

Somes issues getting started with Power CMS

Hi,

1. I was able to setup the mySQL database perfectly fine and I think, I could setup the database connection file correctly.

2. Thereafter I modified the WA_Globals.php file. However, I could not find the following setting in the WA_Globals.php file:
$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = ""
Hence I did not apply the above setting. Is that required?

3. I thereafter uploaded the Power CMS in a folder called cms on my web server.

4. Though I am able to login (the URL is admin), none of the other pages display - we get an error:
Oops! This link appears to be broken.
The only page which displays fine is the page after login and the Advance Search.

I have extremely limited experience of PHP and mySQL and want to know as to which step, I have done wrong.

Could you please assist in resolving the problem.

Regards,
Anand

In the WA_Globals.php files add:
$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/cms/"

What version of PowerCMS are you using? With the latest version of PowerCMS the globals file should look like this:

<?php
$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" ;
?>

hi,
I purchased & downloaded Power CMS from webassist only yesterday. So I am sure - it will be current version. The WA_globals.php, is identical to the one you have described.

Do you have a url where I can see the errors or issues?

I can view the page you have linked but I can't access it without the pages. Do the errors have any information with them? What does the error say?

Hi,
On accessing Power CMS at the following URL:
admin
and logging in with the following details- login: sa and passw0rd: sa
the admin home appears.
Thereafter none of the other pages e.g. view / edit content are accessible. we get a page not found error.

Do login yourself and advise as to which step I have done wrong.
I need a solution urgently as I have to make the site CMS compliant by the 1st of April.

Regards,
Anand

Hiya Anand,

That is because your PowerCMS files and folders are in a directory called 'cms' - lower-case letters.

Your menu is linking to files in a directory called 'CMS' - upper-case letters. Your browser differentiates between upper and lower case, thus the error.

Didi you install with

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/cms/";  /*  lower-case  */
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/cms/"; /* lower-case */


as Cathy advised earlier? The menu must have picked up the Capitalised CMS from somewhere . . .

Using your CMS to create new content does produce the correct code (i.e. 'cms'):

<?php
include('/domains/55886/web/cms/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_localhost, $localhost, 'test' , 'test');
?>


As it seems to be recognising that correctly, it may be easiest and safest to just change your CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.php file by changing the 2nd and 3rd lines from:

$WA_localRoot =  "".$WAGLOBAL_localRoot."";
$WA_remoteRoot = "".$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot."";


to:

$WA_localRoot =  "/cms/";
$WA_remoteRoot = "/cms/";
