(only I’m doing everything on my local Ubuntu 18.04 desktop)
I did everything (blindly) through “You should be able to see the PHP default test page.”, and everything seems fine (I recognize the PHPinfo page)! Yay! and it’s
PHP Version 7.2.18-1+ubuntu18.04.1+deb.sury.org+1
The next thing they say to do is get the current Kirby (production) installation files form Git, and I want to use the demo/test version instead, so I’m trying to simply unzip that and copy the files to the “web server root” which (I confirmed) is /var/www/html.
So I copied everything from where I unzipped the starterkit-master.zip which I downloaded today at
root@beaver:/var/www/html# cp -rT /home/jim/Downloads/starterkit-master /var/www/html/
which clearly worked, because I see all the files and directories at that level (and spot-check many subdirectory places OK) including .htaccess and 2 other hidden files, and when I point Chromium at
localhost/index.php I get the page “Maegazine | Error”:
Well, stuff can go wrong sometimes …
and the link to https://instagram.com/getkirby works.
So I go back to the instructions at
and I try
and get a 404 error.
What should I do to complete the installation/startup?
Thanks for any help, and I’m sorry if i missed something in the instructions.
