Testing the Installation

Go to a web browser and type in the URL page to your savvy site.

This should be the same address as your web URL value you set in the includes.cfm file.

You should get a Welcome to Savvy Content Manager screen. Login to begin.

Login username: admin

Login password: Admin  (NOTE: passwords are case sensitive)

NOTE: Remember to change the username and password after logging in!

Add A Template

Begin by adding templates to your system.

Each install of savvy comes with a demo template that contains many of the typical objects for a site.

In order to create your first page and test the Savvy CM installation you must first register a template within Savvy. You should use the sample included to test. To register click on 'Add Template'.

When in the template management screen you see a dropdown list of template files that are not currently in use by Savvy CM. If no files show up in the list, your includes.cfm is not configured correctly.  Double check your basepath settings.

Select a template and give it an appropriate name. If that template should be in a specific sub directory structure, specify that. Note that you can leave the default directory blank for your first test.  

After registering a template you need to specify who has rights to that template before you can start adding pages. After the template has been registered you need to assign what users or groups have rights to create pages for it and its objects.  Add your 'admin' user account or group.

Now you are ready to create pages using that template.  We recommend using a test page name and NOT index.cfm when testing.  You can at some point overwrite the index.cfm file of Savvy to place your home page of your web site, but it is best to have the template tested fully before doing so.
