BSD

koken on suse


Tried a new vps, this time using SUSE Leap 42.1 - which did not install as a LAMP server, so...After installing Apache/MariaDB/PHP, prior to following my steps in, koken, I had to follow up with:

# zypper install apache2-mod_php5

# zypper install libapache-mod-php5

# zypper install mcrypt

# zypper install php5-mcrypt

# zypper install php5-zlib

# zypper install php5-mysql



(and mysql_setpermission has to be installed with # zypper install mysql-community-server-tools.

The bitch was, my CMS, koken removed the free theme I was using, "Boulevard" and made available instead the all new "Bouelvard 2" which was available for purchase for $60. But because I had previously registered "ehowton_photography" with them (having used a symlink to "ehowtonphotography") I figured I would just make another symlink, but that turned out to be quite complex. The code which finally worked in the default-server.conf was this:

Alias /ehowton_photography/ "/srv/www/htdocs/ehowtonphotography/"

<Directory "/srv/www/htdocs/ehowtonphotography/">
