Up and running with web matrix?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am a cms hobbyist.  I've got a little experience with wordpress, a little with drupal, a little with orchard.  I just heard about Processwire on a music producer forum I hang out on, and I was hoping somebody could help me get this up and running using Microsofts Web Matrix, so I can check it out.

Cheers

Web Matrix, is that like CPanel for IIS or something? Do you have to use it, or can you install PHP applications the manual way?

Hi Jonathan,

First, welcome to the forums! Music producer forum sounds like Joss?

Sorry, I don't have specific answers but I think one of the main problems you'd run into is .htaccess. From what I understand, Webmatrix does not support that. PHP and MysQL will be fine (I think) from what I've read.

If you really want to try PW locally, I'd suggest you use WAMP or XAMPP if you are on a PC, which I guess you are since you use Webmatrix?

Hi kongondo, 

I don't have a problem using XAMPP, I've already installed the package for windows, but I'm having trouble figuring out the next step.  I've got ProcessWire zip downloaded, unzipped, and placed in my document.  Obviously, I have to run XAMPP, but what do I do next?

:-)

I'm from the Renoise Forums.  My name over there is 2 daze j, my twitter name is jonathan_five, so I guess since I signed up here with my twitter account, I used my twitter name to match.  Here is the thread @ Renoise where this software came up.

You should look up XAMPP instructions for e.g. Joomla on Youtube. There are great simple video tutorials that show you how to set up a database and run your PHP app. I think you'd be able to follow along with ProcessWire files & setup just fine.

      Is there a way to paginate to the contents of a pagetable? I'm currently creating a page with a pagetable field that could possibly have hundreds of pages underneath. Has anybody done this? Thanks.

I need to know if anyone could assist me and sorry if this request has been already replied in another thread but obviously I did not manage to find it.... on how I could translate the admin interface in Greek!
