Some thoughts on installing Aptana 1.5.1

Last weekend I re-installed all my operating systems and had a lot of trouble installing/updating Aptana Studio on Windows and OSX, I am taking some notes just in case more people face the same situation:

1. Install Aptana 1.5.1

2. Choose your workspace

3. Add 2 new software locations:

  • Aptana Update Site: http://update.aptana.com/install/php/
  • Galileo Update Site: http://download.eclipse.org/releases/galileo

Test the connection for both locations

4.Install the following packages ( I do PHP development, so…. )

  • PHP Development Tools (PDT) – PDT SDK 2.1.2
  • PHP Debugger Binaries (Optional PDT)
  • Zend CE Features
  • Subversive – SVN Team Provider Plugin (Incubation)

5.Restart Aptana and you should have it updated correctly

6. Install SVN connector

  • SNV Kit 1.3.2 – so I have the same interface in all O.S.es

7. Restart Aptana again

8.Update your Aptana installtion

  • Aptana Database Explorer
  • Aptana Studio
  • Aptana Studio Professional
  • Aptana Subversion Support
  • Graphical Editing Framework GEF
  • PHP Development Tools (PDT) Runtime Feature
  • PHP Development Tools (PDT) SDK Feature 2.1.3
  • PHP Development Tools (PDT) SDK Feature 2.1.1

8. You’re done

Happy coding!

Kohana v3.03 reset

Download Kohana v3.0.3

Upload files to your server

Fix these paths inside index.php:

$application = '../application';
$modules = '../modules';
$system = '../system';

Try accessing to make sure you installed correctly:

http://kohanav3.portnumber53.com/

Some tweaks:

Inside application/bootstrap.php:

date_default_timezone_set('America/Los_Angeles');
kohana::init(array(
 'base_url' => '/',
 'index_file' => '',
));

Now create: application/classes/controller/layout.php

Now extend the previous controller: application/classes/controller/website.php

And create a controller to handle content: application/classes/controller/content.php
