Customising the Installer
Once you’ve developed your site in Seagull, built your custom modules and created your sample data, you are going to want to customise the installation process to your customer’s needs.
You can do this renaming the file [gitlink:/branches/0.6-bugfix/etc/customInstallDefaults.ini.dist seagull/etc/customInstallDefaults.ini.dist] to seagull/etc/customInstallDefaults.ini and modifying the sample settings in it.
Customising config settings
As of Seagull 0.6.2 you can customise any config setting from the global config file, not just params from the installer. Just add the ini settings as required to seagull/etc/customInstallDefaults.ini, ie
[group] key = value
In the example below many customisation techniques are used:
; Add your customised settings below, and rename this file to customInstallDefaults.ini. ; Then when you run the Seagull installer, these values will be used. adminFirstName = Demian adminLastName = Turner siteName = Foo adminEmail = email@example.com siteKeywords = siteDesc = siteCookie = FOOSESSID prefix = name = foo ; this is database name aModuleList = block,cms,export,default,media,user [site] defaultTheme = babyfy showLogo = logo.gif inputUrlHandlers = Classic,Sef [path] moduleDirOverride = modulesFOO pathToCustomConfigFile = ../modulesFOO/constants.php uploadDirOverride = /www/themes/foo/images/uploads
