In my last post, Introducing the razorCMS Testing Pad, I discussed this new flat-file CMS and the small website I am building as a way to test and experiment with razorCMS. I installed a barebones system with no extra bladepacks, just the basic system. In this post I will discuss my installation experience. I won't go over all the installation details since you can find them well documented in the User Manual, which you can download here. Installation, for the most part, is a breeze. Because it's a flat file CMS, you don't have to worry about creating or configuring databases or anything like that. You just need to edit one file and you're good to go. I did run into one small problem. I followed the manual to the letter but when I tried to load my new site, I got a 500 Internal Server Error:
Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, XXXXXX@maryspad.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log. Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
