I restart my hobby project https://dogvalley.be/ after almost a year.
I this time a like testing other flatfile CMS-systems, but honestly Automad is my favorite 🙂
- it works fantatstic
- and very important @mad do awesome work with Automad, working hard for up-to-date Automad and soon there is a newer version (2.0) and this give me motiviation rebuild my project with Automad.
So i want revive my project with Automad.
Ok, back to work:
Normal i develop my websites online/on my hosting, the reason: all the settings works out-of-the-box (e.g. no permission issues and so on)
Now i trying setup manual a local webserver on my Chromebook (no Xampp) , in a linux environment (Crostini) .
What i'm afraid for and became reality are permission issues 🙁
I found docs on the Automad website about installing locally, but this howto's are not linux related.
Follow these steps for installing the apache-webserver.
After that type this commend for accessing webserver's root-dir:
$sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /var/www
Now i can adding and showing php-files and subdirs, and browse to this files and dirs without problems.
After that copy Automad to a subdir, and gowing to http://100.115.92.202/dogvalley/, but gives this error:
The "/cache" directory must be writable by the web server!
Someone knows how can i solve this issue? Or what the correct permissions are for all the dirs and files in Automad?
