Installation Guide

Installing Contentigo is really simple.

Installing Contentigo

  1. Download the latest Contentigo zip file.
  2. Unzip the file somewhere sensible, for example under the apache document root.

Configuring Apache

Apache can be configured in many ways, but one of the easiest ways is to use a single 'virtual host' entry for each Contentigo site.

Below is an example Virtual Host configuration that you can copy and paste into your httpd.conf file.

The example above configures the site '' to be accessed locally with a web browser with the URL "http://helloworld.local". Of course, we will also need to enter 'helloworld.local' into our 'hosts' file so that "http://helloworld.local" references our computer and not somewhere on the Internet.

After making any changes to the httpd.conf file, you must restart Apache to pickup the new configuration.

Installing the "Hello World" Site

  1. Download the 'Hello World' site from the download page.
  2. Unzip the 'Hello World' site and place the unzipped '' directory (and its contents) in the directory configured in the virtual host (in our case, this would be the 'mysites' directory).
  3. Edit the file: "/" and change the '$CONTENTIGO_LOCATION' variable to point to the Contentigo directory.

Testing the installation

Open a browser and navigate to http://helloworld.local and you should see a welcome message.

If you do not see a welcome message, have a look at the php and apache logs - you should be able to discover and fix the problem easily.
