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 (http://lucene.apache.org). 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.
create-axyl-website.sh 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.
setup-axyl.sh 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 ;-)
