Install Light Blogging Software FlatPress on OpenShift PaaS : First Steps
Possibly you are not used with git. Even if you are not used that much, we have written this guide in a way, so that you can easily use FlatPress on OpenShit. First, create a PHP App from OpenShift’s dashboard. PHP desirably should be the latest one. By default, your app will have this kind of URL :
# php will be the default app name
After creating it, you have to clone it to your computer (you’ll get the url on OpenShift dashboard) :Advertisement
git clone ssh://email@example.com/~/git/openpress.git/
# you can not clone mine
# clone yours
# cd to git folder
cd open press
# openpress is just an app name
