In order to test the latest version of cms and find out about new features, I decided to go ahead and get started.
I scrupulously followed the methods explained in the deployment guide in the Apache environment under Linux server 20.04 LTS, however I have a problem during my installation.
Here are the following parameters:
- Xibo CMS archive, unzipped in /home/$user/xibocms
- Symbolic link from /home/$user/xibocms/web to /var/www/xibocms
The www-data rights are well done as well as the recursive chmod 755.
I have in the apache config the mod alias activated as well as the following instruction:
Alias /xibocms /var/www/xibocms/web
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Multiviews
Order allow, deny
Allow from all
Require all granted
I took care to set the rewrite rule in the .htaccess file as follows:
Despite the scrupulous following of your instructions, nothing works, I still observe the same behavior: infinite redirection of the installation url generating a browser error explaining to me that the page is incorrectly redirected although I do not have “web” in the url address…
I precise I use Firefox last review and tried on chrome, safari, edge and ie11 with same behavior.
I ran out of tired and decided to reinstall totally my test server, clean all browsers cache, allow cookies…
It took at least 3 hours to deploy again all packets (apache, php, mysql and other…) with upgrades etc…
This morning I tried again but without success.
I went through the possibilities with aliases, document root etc … and I think I’ll end up pulling out the little hair I have left on my head at this rate
I still specify that I am an admin and that I am used to this environment. Therefore, there is necessarily something that escapes me or there is an error that has crept into your installer.
Thanks for feedback.
