Cookbook: Setting up Kumbia PHP Framework

Kumbia is a free web framework written in PHP5. Configuring Cherokee to run with Kumbia is almost trivial.

Translated from the projects About page:

First you have to unpack the package into your web hierarchy, /var/www/kumbia_demo for example.

Then you have to set the public subdirectory as your document web root.

Then, you have to set up several rules in Cherokee to rewrite the requests. To do that, proceed to the Virtual servers section. Select the virtual server that you will be configuring and go to the Behavior tab and Rule Management to set up the rules.

  1. You will need to keep the rule for the php extension.

  2. Next, configure a rule with the handler File Exists that should be set to a priority lower than that of the php rule. This one can be set to match any file: the important thing is to check the Match any file checkbox. Let this rule be handled by the Static Content handler.

  3. And last, modify your Default rule by configuring the redirection handler, through the Handler tab.

    Type Regular Expression Substitution




This will take care of redirecting the requests to Kumbia.

You are done with the configuration! You can now access your application.
