       Axyl - A Php platform for website development



       This  manual page briefly introduces the Axyl web-development platform.
       Axyl is a framework for creating websites  using  the  Php  programming
       language.  Database support is provided in a DB-independent manner with
       modules supplied for Postgresql  (preferred),  Oracle,  MS-SQL  Server,
       MySQL,  and  ODBC.  Websites  can  also  easily  be  developed  with no
       database-backing.   Support  is   also   provided   for   Lucene,   the
       industrial-strength  search  engine  developed  as  part  of the Apache
       project ( This is a Java daemon (Debian users
       must install the axyl-lucene package) which listens on a user specified
       port for XML commands  to  either  index  or  search.   Other  features
       include   template-driven   content,  themed  look  and  feel,  wysiwyg
       content-management interface for  users,  built-in  menu  and  security
       system, and a GUI control-panel.

OPTIONS  Used  to spawn a new Axyl website from the Axyl
       installation. This shell script does everything  required  for  you  to
       start  a  new project, and is found in the install sub-directory of the
       Axyl installation. It creates the directory hierarchy which the website
       will  be  served from and makes all the necessary links, copies etc. to
       set you up. This script is also located in the Axyl install directory
       and  is  intended to be used by people who have acquired Axyl from CVS,
       an  RPM,  or  from  a  tarball.  It  sets  up  the  configuration  file
       (/etc/axyl/axyl.conf) up, installs the LuceneServer and does one or two
       other things which the Debian package would normally do  automatically.
       Advanced users only - we recommend using the Debian package instead.
       /etc/init.d/axyl-lucene    start|stop|restart    This   is   the   Axyl
       LuceneServer start/stop script. The installation will  have  made  sure
       that the daemon starts on reboot automatically. You can manually start,
       stop and restart it using this script as root from  the  command  line.
       Post-installation, the daemon should have been started for you.


       /etc/axyl/axyl.conf  Contains  the  basic  setup locations for the Axyl
       installation and also the Port  setting  for  Lucene.  Should  be  left
       alone, as-installed. FYI only.


       The  system documentation, which is to be found in /usr/share/doc/axyl.
       Also the Axyl installation, since the  best  documentation  of  all  is
       always the code ;-)
