< Ocs-server | Gfx4 The Gfx frameworks consist of a root directory that contains basically the source directory that's (still) called gfx3, a standard index.php and .htaccess file responsible for the rewriting stuff. In order to prepare your server to host a Gfx application please refer to the Configuring a webserver as host guide, since ocs-server is built around Gfx (or, in many cases, the contrary). Unzipping our latest package in your DocumentRoot will create a standard directory tree for you. Contents 1 Gfx root folder structure 2 Main site and subsites folder structure 3 Finding paths 4 Other webpage properties Gfx root folder structure index.php: handles every request. Shouldn't be moved or modified. .htaccess: responsible for Gfx URL rewriting, shouldn't be moved or modified. /gfx3/src: contains all the source of Gfx /gfx3/libs: put here any php file that will be loaded and handled as an external library available for all subsites. /gfx3/docs: contains some small hand txt documentation files (can be outdated) Main site and subsites folder structure /config: contains all the configuration files of the website /models: contains all the models /controllers: contains all the controllers /views: contains all the views /libs: contains all the third part libraries In order to create a sub-website with its config, models etc... just create a folder called "config" inside the folder you want to become a subsite. Remember to create a proper generic.conf.php, database.conf.php and rewrite.conf.php. Grab them from the main website and then modify them according to your needs if you don't know how to write them. Finding paths There's a handy class that stores all useful absolute paths: ELoader. This class is also responsible for the actual load and execution of the Gfx framework. Let's suppose we have installed Gfx in /var/www/html which responds to http://localhost. URL called is http://localhost/admin. Then ELoader will have those attributes set: ELoader::$prev_path = /var/www/html ELoader::$abs_path = /var/www/html/gfx/src ELoader::$root_path = localhost or the host of your choice ELoader::$subsite_path = /admin ELoader::$cache_path = /var/www/html/gfx3/cache ELoader::$libs_path = /var/www/html/gfx3/libs ELoader::$config_path = /var/www/html/admin/config ELoader::$controllers_path = /var/www/html/admin/controllers ELoader::$models_path = /var/www/html/admin/models ELoader::$views_path = /var/www/html/admin/views ELoader::$locallibs_path = /var/www/html/admin/libs Other webpage properties The class EPageProperties has some userful methods that gives infos about the current web page. EPageProperties::get_current_website_url() = http://localhost or for example http://www.example.com EPageProperties::get_clear_domain() = example when full URL of website is http://www.example.com EPageProperties::get_domain() = example.com when full URL of website is http://www.example.com, works also for co.uk amd other unusual domain names...
