Step 1 - Install Grav
This application uses the Grav CMS. This repository does not contain a full Grav installation - rather, it just contains the contents of Grav's
user directory, which is where all of our custom content, themes, and assets live. This was done as per the recommendation on Grav's blog, to make it easier to deploy changes to the live server.
To install this website on your computer, first install grav core in a project folder called
userfrosting-learn under your webserver's document root folder. Then, find the
user folder inside of your project folder. Delete the contents of the
user folder and clone this repository directly into the user folder.
When you're done it should look like this:
htdocs/ └── userfrosting-learn/ ├── assets/ ├── ... ├── user/ ├── .git ├── accounts/ ├── assets/ ├── config/ └── ... └── ...
Grav needs your webserver to be able to write to certain directories. In OSX with XAMPP installed, this won't work by default. To deal with this:
Add default webserver user
daemon to OSX's
staff group (which already has the necessary permissions for writing to files/directories):
sudo dseditgroup -o edit -a daemon -t user staff
Install plugins and base theme. The base theme is learn2. The plugins each have empty directories in the plugins directory.
