We're almost getting to the point where you will have the web-based interface up and running! Before we can do that, the clearos-framework needs to be installed. This package provides the base PHP developer framework used to create apps for ClearOS.
In order to keep the ClearOS framework isolated from the operating system's PHP and web server installations, a separate Apache/PHP engine is installed. Following the ClearOS mantra of not re-inventing the wheel, the ClearOS Apache/PHP uses the exact same source code version found in CentOS/RHEL, but installed neatly into /usr/clearos/sandbox. The package names that you will see installed are:
- webconfig-httpd-* - the Apache engine
- webconfig-php-* - the PHP engine
The clearos-framework itself is the PHP development framework based off of CodeIgniter. There are a few tweaks in there of course, but its still 99% untouched CodeIgniter. There we are again – no wheels re-invented!
If you are interested in more information on the framework, you can find a high level overview here.
To install the package on our CentOS to ClearOS bootstrap install:
yum install clearos-framework
The result should be similar to the following:
