Completed all the steps of instillation but page does not display correctly

  • Problem
  • Updated 10 months ago
Everything during the instillation process works fine but then when I go to view my website the content is displayed as a list not as shown in the example. When I click on links such as project or about I get :

Not Found

The requested URL /domains/n/a/natalieshortt.co.uk/public_html/public/domains/n/a/natalieshortt.co.uk/public_html/index.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I've managed to sort this by changing the information in the htaccess. I just have one small problem which is when my I am on individual project pages the text does not display correctly (its bellow the image and not in the correct typeface). I am using template 3.

Could you attach a link to your site so I can see the problem?

You may need to add "RewriteBase /test" (without the quotes) to your .htaccess file.

I've got it sorted now! I think it was because I tried to delete the selected projects bit from the templates and this mucked everything up. Is there an easy way to get rid of the selected projects from the top of the page, or if not a way to change the dates?

I've got the same problem as well. I tried to add "RewriteBase /test" to my .htaccess file. But it still doesn't work. What can I do??

What is the name of the folder your stacey site is sitting within?

Hi there, I'm having the same problem. I'm running stacey on my local computer, in WebServer/Documents/stacey (Mac OS X 10.6)
I've uncommented RewriteBase in the .htaccess file and changed it to: RewriteBase /stacey

But no styling, either with the default or template3.
I've also followed the instructions for installing it on OS X.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

It sounds like you may need to try running through step 4 of the tutorial again.
http://staceyapp.com/tutorials/runnin...

Double-check that you changed the text to read 'AllowOverride All' (with the correct capitalisation) and that it was for the "WebServer/Documents/" folder.

Hi Anthony, thanks for your response - I've double checked my httpd.conf file and it seems to read correctly:

#
# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
#
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
#
# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
# http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/...
# for more information.
#
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews

#
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#
AllowOverride All

#
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
#
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Any other ideas?

Thanks.

Looks like you need to restart apache! Fire up Terminal and type sudo apachectl restart. You'll be prompted for your password, just type it in (it won't appear as you type) and hit enter.

Reason for edit:
read Jon's last post.

Hi Justin,

Thanks that seems to have worked. However, I also got the email notification of your other message, which is something I would rather try... my question: is there a user httpd.conf that I can edit with AllowOverride All?

Thanks so much.

Actually, on a mac, you can just drop the stacey folder directly into your Sites folder (in your user directory). When you do that, change the rewrite base to say RewriteBase /~USERNAME/stacey where USERNAME is your username (with the ~ thing infront of it!). Then just go to http://localhost/~USERNAME/stacey and your up and running!

Would it be easier to supply a httpd.conf file, so they just download and copy/paste a few terminal commands to get it working?

I have the same problem :( but I've got it all working and styled locally on my mac. When I transfer it to the FTP site first I get nothing, then I followed an instruction from my host to add "AddType x-mapp-php5 .php" to the .htaccess file in order to tell it to use PHP 5. Which I've duly done, but I get the non-styled, broken-linked version (see mattwinkworth.co.uk)

Could it be anything to do with my webhost? More likely to be something I've messed up, I expect...

Thanks in advance,

Matt

Hi Matt, where did you add "AddType x-mapp-php5 .php" in the .htaccess file. I think i have the same problem, but I have no idea what I'm doing :/

Never mind, I kind of got it working on a subdomain

Chances are the RewriteBase is causing trouble. Would you dump your .htaccess file here?

Hi Justin,

I uncommented the RewriteBase line, and that seems to have done the trick. Thanks! Now on to trying to figure how to make this music player work... :)

Thanks!

Hey All,

I'm having the same problem with this site: http://thethreadwithin.com/ I have stacey running on another domain (on the same server, could that be the problem?) and it runs totally fine. For some reason, however, the subdomain doesn't work at all.

Any ideas? I'm working directly off of my server, not remotely.

Thanks!

As long as both stacey installations are in separate folders, they won't cause any problems for the other.
Have you tried uncommenting the RewriteBase in your .htaccess?

Hey Justin,

thanks for your response.

Hm, no, I haven't tried that. I tried to figure it out from above but have no idea .... can you give me a feel for what I need to do?

Thanks!

Hey All,

I managed to figure it out!

Because it was a subdomain on my server, it was trying to connect to the site backwards. I had to edit re-write the base directory to be "/" and to uncomment it, which Justin mentioned. It worked! THANKS!

I'm having major trouble -

I installed Stacey locally and followed Justin's instructions to drop it into the Sites folder, which worked beautifully. I worked off of this for a week or so, editing my site, then needed to restart my computer. Now that it's been restarted, I can no longer access it through my http://localhost directory. I went back through the installation process and triple checked everything and it all seems to be leading to the correct place. What's going on?

I also tried to drop it into Library/WebServer/Documents, and upload it to the FTP site, but none of it seems to work.

HELP! Can I provide any additional info so someone can help?

It says:

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

But I can access other sites just fine...And it worked until I restarted my computer...peculiar.

That means your server isn't running. Go to System Preferences (under the Apple menu) , click Sharing, and make sure Web Sharing (or sonething similar to that but not Internet Sharing) is enabled.

Nope - Web Sharing was definitely enabled. I'm puzzled. In any case, I decided just to put it directly on my FTP site since that's where it'll end up anyway. I have all the Stacey files in a folder called "new" on my domain "au.dience.org" (there's a splash page up while we redesign the site to direct visitors elsewhere). Do I have to direct a particular file to the "new" folder on the site in order for Stacey to appear, like the httpd.conf? Humph. I appreciate any help!

Did you have to add a RewriteBase to your .htaccess file?
