TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Adding ProjectPier to WordPress VM

Zaheer's picture

Hello All, 


I am trying to add an existing ProjectPier installation to the WordPress VM. I am aware there is an additional turnkey VM for PP, however i would like to have it all on one VM if possible. Looking at apache seetings for document root reveals the web root is /var/www/wordpress/ So i added my ProjectPier installation in that folder thinking i could go to mysite.com/Projects/ .

I did create the MySQL database in PHPmyadmin prior to this and imported my PP databse. I currently run  this  on Mac OS X  using the subfolder method , so i am unsure of what i am doing incorrectly. i always just get "The requested URL /projects/ was not found on this server." Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Not my specialty...

But OTTOMH I would think the easiest way to go would be to add your ProjectPier site to /var/wwwprojects and set the webroot to /var/www then the PP site will be <ip-address>/projects and the WP site will be <ip-address>/wordpress. You could make a simple html landing site with links to each to make it extra easy...

Failing that, you may need to add a new virtual host that points to the PP site.

Tried that, still no luck :(

Thanks so much for the reply, 

Basically the end goal  is to have the wordpress site as a default www.mysite.com and have the ProjectPier as a subdir mysite.com/projects. This is because the projects portion is private it is for me and a one other only.

What i did is initially just put it in /var/www/wordpress/projects which i was hoping would result in this : www.mysite.com/projects

It gave the error,  I actually did create another  virtual host to point it to /var/www/wordpress/projects/ but to my GREAT surprise it still failed. with the same error. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Quick thoughts...

So to clarify you are getting 404 errors? (Ie page not found). And you're restarting/reloading apache after making config changes yeah? Also perhaps check the apache logs (IIRC /var/log/apache2) as they may contain some more specifics on what is going on.

I've got a fair bit on, but if I get a chance I'll have a play later and see if I can get it to work.
