I haven't a clue how to set this up ?

The web address is python.im

Can you navigate to it and tell me how to set this up correctly. All of the files are exposed there for all the world to see ???

I haven't a clue where to get the information for superglobals and I don't know if the connection file is right ?

This is not easy for new people ?

Your files are exposed because you don't have a file (page) called either index.html or index.php in the root directory.

Create a 'home' page - put content on it and save it as either index.html or index.php

Upload the page to your live site.

Continued dialogue CMS admin

Do I need an index page to access the admin panel of the CMS? That's my main concern at the moment ? If it is necessary for the admin to work I'll upload an index

Kind Regards,

Mike

And no, it's not too easy when you're starting off. To be honest, Building a CMS system into your site is not as straight-forward as the WA_blurb suggests (no knowledge of code required etc) for a starter.

Plenty of help and support on the web though.

Hi, I'm not a WA_pro, and don't have this CMS software, but the directions should all be in the CMS 'Getting Started Guide'

There should be a file in your admin/ folder that you need to access one you have all the files installed and configured correctly as per instructions.

The file you will need to access will be mentioned in your Getting Started Guide. Some of the WA people will respond soon and give you fuller instructions if you need them.

But I would make and upload an index.html or index.php file if only to hide your installation.

You should have an index.html page as a landing page at:
index.html


to access the admin section, go to:
admin/


you will need to go thorough the getting started guide in the Getting Started section of the PowerCMS support page at:
powercms/

for instructions on configuring the database and other aspects.

Also you will have to have some pages of your site built in order to apply the CMS to.

This might help, but the support files you got with the solution may be more current.

Thankyou both jason and neil for your help

This should be enough to get me started atleast.

I do appreciate your help. Even though I sound frustrated.

Kind regards,
