FuelCMS and Bitnami.org LampStack setup

edited January 2012 in Installation

I'm having trouble installing the FuelCMS on the Bitnami.org Lampstack. I created a 'fuelcms' directory under the Bitnami /apps and have uncommented the codeigniter line in the Apache httpd.conf so that the codeigniter framework supplied with the LampStack loads and added the following line to load a "FuelCMS" configuration file:

Include "/projects/lampstack-5.3.8-2/apps/fuelcms/conf/fuelcms.conf"

Its contents are:

Alias /fuelcms/ "/projects/lampstack-5.3.8-2/apps/fuelcms/htdocs/"
Alias /fuelcms "/projects/lampstack-5.3.8-2/apps/fuelcms/htdocs"

Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

I have placed the recommended FuelCMS .htaccess file in apps/fuelcms/htdocs, set 'admin_enabled' = TRUE and 'fuel_mode' = 'auto' in MY_fuel.php, but I get a 404 error when trying to access:

I read through the forum and tried all the suggested fixes such as commenting out the RewriteBase statement and adding a question mark to the index.php rewrite rule but can't seem to get things working. Do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help!

    Are you able to access it using the index.php in the URL like so?

    I am able to access the backend using the URL you suggested. Thanks!

    One question: Can user permissions be set to individual pages or categories? I need a CMS that can restrict viewing certain areas of the site unless the user is a member of a group. I will have many groups.

    If you are able to access that URL, then it sounds like it may be an issue with the .htaccess. Is .htaccess enabled with ModRewrite.

    With regards to the groups permissions, FUEL does not have anything out of the box, however you can create your own CI controller and models to deal with that. You can also try using something like tank_auth:
