Access to the website with Processwire in a subfolder

Recommended Posts

It seems to me I just had to set the rewrite_base in the distributed processwire .htaccess

In your root directory find the .htaccess file.

Inside that file check for RewriteBase

It must be uncomment something like:


RewriteBase /pw

 

I have done that, and it does not work. I have the .htaccess in the /pw folder. I think maybe the file has to be in the root of the server, and not in the root of the PW installation.

I think I am going to move the installation to the root :(

Ok, now I understand better.
You shoud use a rewrite rule in a .htaccess of the document root, you will lost web access to your Document Root :( but your traffic will end in /pw

Something like:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /pw/$1

This rule should work but there are more way's to do it.

Another solution would be to create a subdomain / use a virtual host but I don't know if that is what you need.


The previous post about the RewriteBase is still valid, you still have to tell apahce that Proceswire is not in the main directory.

There are possibilities to prevent that, e.g. by excluding all physically existing files and directories using a rewrite condition:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /pw/$1

You could also add specific subdirectories from being redirected, for example if you want to have another PW installation in a sub directory named "pw3", you'd add a condition before the rule:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/pw3/

      Add Image URLs
      Allows images/files to be added to Image/File fields by pasting URLs.

      Usage
      Install the Add Image URLs module.
      A "Paste URLs" button will be added to all image and file fields. Use the button to show a textarea where URLs may be pasted, one per line. Images/files are added when the page is saved.

      Have read loads of similar threads but can't find the deifnitive answer. I'm bootstrapping ProcessWire into a Magento installation. Everything is working fine in terms of expected PW API functionality, however I cannot get the paths for images in the site work correctly.
      ProcessWire is installed in a subfolder called 'pw'.
      If I load the PW site directly e.g. visit mainsite.com/pw everything loads fine and all image paths are correct. If I load the parent site in the root folder with the PW bootstrapped page content rendered within it, the image paths don't contain the subfolder and so are broken. So I get
      https://mainsiteexample.com/site/templates/img/test.jpg instead of
      https://mainsiteexample.com/pw/site/templates/img/test.jpg I've tried updating the rewrite base in the .htaccess file but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Have also tried various settings in the config file to no avail. Wondering if rewrite base perhaps isn't working as intended because I'm behind a NGINX/Apache hybrid environment?

      Hello!
      I want to keep sort some pages in my page tree within a single parent, but then have the URLs for those pages ignore their topmost parent.
      So for example, if the page is at: [home]/buildings/architect-name/building-name
      I want the URL to be /architect-name/building-name
      I've search around the forum, and the solution that comes up everywhere is a version of the code from this post: 
      /** * This hook modifies the default behavior of the Page::path function (and thereby Page::url) * * The primary purpose is to redefine blog posts to be accessed at a URL off the root level * rather than under /posts/ (where they actually live). * */ wire()->addHookBefore('Page::path', function($event) { $page = $event->object; if($page->template == 'post') { // ensure that pages with template 'post' live off the root rather than '/posts/' $event->replace = true; $event->return = "/$page->name/"; } }); And I can use a version of that to successfully get buildings/architect-name to appear as /architect-name
      But /buildings/architect-name/building-name still appears as /buildings/architect-name/building-name
      Is there a way to get URLs to ignore/remove that topmost parent even when the page has a grandchild?
      Any help much appreciated!

      Maybe I'm missing something here, but I'm haveing a hard time to get absolute urls if PW is installed in a subdirectory thought the API...
      I need an absolute URL for the backend (as a redirect url of Oauth provider). To build the url i would normaly use
      url()->root.url()->admin – but this results in the install-path beeing present twice;
      domain.com/path/ + path/admin/
      In order to not use $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] I fetch the admin page from pages – but this is also not to easy since I need to remove the root folder from path as well. My current solution is somewhat complicated:
      $backendUrl = pages()->get('path="'.str_replace(urls()->root, '', urls()->admin).'", include=all')->httpUrl; The above code seems to be the savest way to get the absolute url to the backend using pure PW API, am I right?
      It would be great if one could fetch absolute urls with something like this
      $backendUrl = urls()->admin->httpUrl // or $backendUrl = httpUrls()->admin  
      SOLVED:
      Thank you @adrian – of course this HAD to be simpler:
      urls()->httpAdmin;

      I have web hosting with the following .htaccess en root, to point it to a subdirectory "audino.us", wherein I have PW installed:
      RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?something.com$ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/something.com/ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /audino.us/$1 RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?something.com$ RewriteRule ^(/)?$ something.com/index.php [L] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?something.com$ RewriteRule ^(/)?$ something.com [L] However when I go to audino.us/pw to access the admin, it becomes audino.us/audino.us/pw, and doesn't allow me to log in. How do I render the above to be recursive (?), i.e., to apply to all subordinate URLs? Is this to be done within the .htaccess in /audino.us, or in the root .htaccess above? Please help, I can't log in. Thanks much.
