I just bought my license today for vanilla Perch, and I’ve been following the wonderful “Installing Perch” video series on YouTube. It works on my machine as far as copying the Perch folder into the desired directory and trying to run it on my local host.
I’m using Ubuntu and trying to start up Perch for the first time on a locally hosted Apache 2 server (also my first time setting up this type of server). I copied the whole Perch folder into the /var/www/html directory that Apache told me to, and I cannot figure out how to open that first configuration page shown on the video where you test your DB compatibility.
I have tried accessing the folder from the browser and it just gives me a directory list of what’s in the folder. I’ve removed everything else from /var/www/html except for the Perch folder and it still won’t load anything; when I click on a php file, it just downloads it (again).
