Wildflower 1.3 Beta - A CakePHP CMS


    * Apache web server with mod_rewrite
    * No problem to run under some other web server like lighttpd or IIS, you just need to emulate the mod_rewrite rules 
    * PHP 5.2 or higher (reported to work with 5.1)
    * MySQL 4.1 or higher


   1. Extract the archive. Place the 'wildflower' directory inside your apache document root or some folder under it. Of course you can rename the 'wildflower' directory at will.
   2. Create a new MySQL database. Use 'utf8_unicode_ci' collation. Into this new database import the SQL dump file 'app/config/sql/wildflower.sql'.
   3. Edit the app/config/database.php file with your database connection details.
   4. You've got a working copy of http://wf.klevo.sk site. You can start working on your project by modifying the application inside the app directory. When a new release of Wildflower comes, you simply update the cake, vendors and wildflower directories.
   5. The admin area is located under 'http://your-site/wf'. This can be changed by changing the 'Wildflower.prefix' configure key in 'app/plugins/wildflower/config/core.php'.
   6. Default login/password combination for admin area is admin/admin321 --Don`t forget to change this when in production.
Wildflower is not and won't be a CakePHP plugin

WF uses the additional MVC paths CakePHP feature. All the Wildflower MVC (model, view, controller) files are located inside the /wildflower directory. Except the app_controller.php, app_model.php and app_helper.php. These are of course essential for proper WF functioning and are found standardly at the /app folder. This architecture enables you to copy any WF MVC file into your /app folder, modify it and Cake will automatically use it. Of course it's recommented to create your own controllers/models/etc. for your custom functionality, but this feature is here if you need to modify some core Wildflower functionality or do a quick hack AND upgrading won't be a nightmare.

    1. Copy and overwrite all the files with the new version.
    2. Run database migrations. From your working folder launch from the shell: 'php vendors/ruckusing/main.php db:migrate'. This will update your database to the latest version.
Problems logging in after updating to AuthComponent enabled version? (1.3b1) / need to generate a password to insert directly into DB?

Use the UtilityShell to generate an AuthComponent compatible password hash:
./cake/console/cake wildflower hash myPassword

Insert the result into your database in the 'password' field of the 'wild_users' table.
