Download and Installation
You should be able to download the gem just by running
$ sudo gem install YurtCMS
If You are Updating From a Prior Version
If you are updating from an older version of the cms, don't run
yurt newsite; instead, cd into the directory and run
$ yurt update
This will update any files in the yurt directory, and give you the new features.
Starting a New Website
If you are not updating from an older version, the next step is to get a CMS admin area set up.
cd to where you'd like to set it up, then run
$ yurt newsite your_new_site_name
This will create a new directory called
your_new_site_name/ and add in all the required files.
As part of the process for setting up a new CMS,
yurt newsite writes out a pre-configured apache configuration file. You'll need to integrate this into your existing configuration.
