Cannot edit the default page, which renders the entire exercise useless. The file cannot be written to, even though it is chmod 777. Yeah, I read the DOCs. Yeah, I followed the instructions. Yeah, I'm very comfortable with the terminal. Yeah, I know: it must be me. And yet ... I administer plenty of LAMP configurations on two continents. That's three hours I'll never get back (reading and documenting work takes time). Every project I use from sourceforge, and other sites, I donate to. That would be projects in the dozens, by the way. Can't donate to yours as ... it doesn't work for me.
