FreeBSD Installation Tips

For anyone else that's using the FreeBSD OS and its ports system to manage software instalations, I've created a CodeIgniter port for easy installation.

Full details can be found here: http://www.freshports.org/www/codeigniter/

With the ports system, package installation is as easy as:


cd /usr/ports/www/codeigniter && make install clean

The port does have some configuration knobs so you can choose your back-end database, whether an Apache config file should be installed and whether CI is installed on a production or development machine.

If anyone has suggestions for improving the port, please let me know. The current version of the port installs CI 1.6.1.

Cheers, Greg Larkin
