SiberianCMS: SAE Single App Edition

Public Roadmap





  1. First you will need to either checkout the project git clone

    or download the zip archive then extract it on your webserver.

  2. Setup your empty database and user

  3. Configure your environment with apache or nginx


If you are running under Apache, be sure that the directive AllowOverride all is working, unless the .htaccess configuration will fail.

<VirtualHost [IP]:80>
        ServerName [yourdomain.tld]

		CustomLog [/path/to/siberiancms]/var/log/httpd.access_log combined
		ErrorLog [/path/to/siberiancms]/var/log/httpd.error_log

		DirectoryIndex index.php

        DocumentRoot [/path/to/siberiancms]

        <Directory [/path/to/siberiancms]>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride all



If you are running under Nginx, all you need is in the current configuration, please check the fastcgi options as they may vary depending on your installation
