You should now have a slashsite! (Unless serious errors were reported
during the install. Some plugins do INSERT IGNOREs which may fail and
that is harmless, notably the Search plugin if SOAP is not installed,
which will report that the soap_methods table does not exist.)
You will need to edit your httpd.conf file to have it Include the
Slash file that (in turn) Includes this site's .conf data. Assuming
this is the first Slash site you've installed for this Apache, you
will almost certainly want to add this to your httpd.conf:
Include $SLASH_PREFIX/httpd/slash.conf
which in turn will Include this file (which you should look at and,
if you know what you're doing, edit):
You may want to take a look at it. If you are using virtual hosting by
hostname you may also need to add a NameVirtualHost to your httpd.conf.
If you do not have your Slash site in the root of the web server (e.g.,
"" instead of ""),
you will need to adjust the rootdir, rdfimage, imagedir, absolutedir,
and cookiepath variables, as you also need to change your Apache config
appropriately. These are all in the "vars" table of your database.
To restart apache do:
apachectl stop
apachectl start
Have fun with your new site. You should also consider registering it:
print $text

print "*** $_[0]\n" if $_[0];
# Generate a sample list of plugins which just happens to be
# the default list for the first theme.
