PowerCMS Problems

I have the PowerCMS login page.

The login page and directory is:
admin

I login and now when I click on the tab > Insert New Content

It brings me to a blank page at this address:
contents_insert.php

So it takes out the CMS/

My Global File looks like this:

<?php
$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "http://www.concentratedmedia.com/CMS/" ; //Absolute path to your site folder.
$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "Concentratedmedia.com" ;

$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.

//iRite Images upload settings
$WAGLOBAL_Images_Folder = "../images/"; //relative path to your images folder.
$WAGLOBAL_Swf_Folder = "../swf/"; //relative path to your swf folder.

etc....

How do I fix this problem?

Thanks!

I had same problem

I had the same problem, start again but this time put all the files in the CMS folder in to the root of your site and that should sort it, basically don't have a CMS folder and then yout global file should look like this:

<?php
$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "http://www.concentratedmedia.com/" ; //Absolute path to your site folder.
$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "Concentratedmedia.com" ;

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "http://www.concentratedmedia.com/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your local testing server.
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "http://www.concentratedmedia.com/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your remote server.

//iRite Images upload settings
$WAGLOBAL_Images_Folder = "media_images/"; //relative path to your images folder.
$WAGLOBAL_Swf_Folder = "swf/"; //relative path to your swf folder.

You might want to rename your images folder as there is already a folder in the CMS folder called images something like media_images hope this does it for you it worked for me

The settings in the global file look correct. with those settings I dont see how it is removing the CMS/ when redirecting. Perhaps there is an older version of the WA_Globals.php file on the server.

Try Deleting the WA_Globals file from the server. Then attempt to log in. With the WA_Globals.php file gone, you should get an error message when loading:
admin

Then re upload the WA_Globals.php file.

Yes I don't understand either. I checked it's not the old version and is still doing the same thing.

I know if I take the files out of the CMS folder it may work but I DO NOT want to do this .. this will lead to a disorganized public domain.

Any other suggestions, it is still not working.
