Copyright (c) 2011-2019 Michael Buesch <m@bues.ch>


Just clone the cms.git repository to some directory where apache has access to. In the configuration example below the directory will be /var/cms

Then create the database directory named db inside of the cloned directory. You may start with the example db:

cp -r /var/cms/example/db /var/cms/

Configuring Apache httpd

Install the Apache WSGI module. On Debian Linux, this is libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3. Create a new config file /etc/apache2/conf.d/wsgi with content similar to the following Debian based example:

# Adjust "user" and "group" to your system.
WSGIDaemonProcess wsgi processes=10 threads=1 display-name=apache-wsgi user=www-data group=www-data python-path=/var/cms
WSGIPythonOptimize 1
# /cms is the base URL path to the CMS.
# /var/cms is where index.wsgi and the db directory live.
# /var/www is the path to the static files.
# Adjust these paths to your setup.
