Right now I have my processwire files in a folder called "processwire" on my remote server, as a child of the root folder. I'm wondering how I can begin to apply the CMS process to my existing website pages instead of the default, sample site. I'm guessing I can start by moving all those files in the "processwire" folder out into the root directory, but what should I do with the index.php file which the processwire folder came with? I'm also guessing I should replace my sites original index.php file and set the processwire one as the default. But then what should I do with the old index and the other pages as well? Where do the pages I already have go? Basically I'm unsure how I should go about "integrating" processwire into my already made pages. The Basic Website Tutorial ("http://wiki.processwire.com/index.php/Basic_Website_Tutorial") instructs me to clean out everything but leave the default site template and a few fields, but it seems like I would be adapting my site to that template. Instead, I wish to adapt processwire to the pages which I've already made. Tell me if I'm getting the workflow/structure wrong: I feel like the workflow/structure requires me to make each of the pages that I already have -- or an identical part of each page -- a template, and then in processwire spawn off a duplicate of each page in my website using the "new" button and selecting those pages as as a template. I feel like I'm kind of working backwards relative to the workflow, or I'm getting the workflow/structure wrong in my head. Thanks for any help in advance! Update: I've tried changing the "home" page to a template that is basically my original site's homepage, but I get the error: Can't save page 1: /: Selected homepage template cannot be used because it does not define access. I read that ryan said the home, admin, and 404 page are essential. However I don't want the home's template style. What is the php code I need to include in my own homepage to start using it as a template? I've tried copy and pasting this from the original home.php template: <?php /** * Home template * */ include("./head.inc"); echo $page->body; include("./foot.inc"); But I'm still getting the same message.
