Welcome to FUEL CMS

Inject More Into Your Web Projects

Getting Started

FUEL CMS uses CodeIgniter 2.0. If you are familiar with installing CodeIgniter, then many of the following steps will seem familiar to you.

  1. Alter your Apache .htaccess file to the proper RewriteBase directory. The default is your web server's root directory. If you do not have mod_rewrite enabled, you will need to change the $config['index_page'] from blank to 'index.php' in your fuel/application/config/config.php file
  2. Install the database by first creating the database in MySQL and then running either fuel/install/fuel_schema.sql OR the fuel/install/widgicorp.sql with the latter if you want the demo site to run. If you have installed a previous version of FUEL CMS, you can run the fuel/install/fuel_0.9.2_upgrade.sql file. After installing the database, change the database configuration found in fuel/application/config/database.php
  3. Make the following folders writable:
    • /home/url84t/magmusic.com/public/fuel/application/cache/
    • /home/url84t/magmusic.com/public/fuel/application/cache/dwoo/
    • /home/url84t/magmusic.com/public/fuel/application/cache/dwoo/compiled
    • /home/url84t/magmusic.com/public/assets/images
  4. If you are wanting to edit pages in FUEL, change the $config['fuel_mode'] configuration property to AUTO in the fuel/application/config/MY_fuel.php file. This must be done to view the demo site.
  5. WARNING: Make sure the fuel/data_backup folder and fuel/crons folder is inaccessible to the web. The .htaccess file that comes with FUEL, blocks the fuel/data_backup and fuel/cron folders by default
  6. To access the FUEL admin, go to:
    uid: admin
    pwd: admin

That’s it!
