Apologies if this has already been covered, my searches haven’t gone well. I’ve tried modifying and following the advice in…, but can’t get what I’m after.

I have rubystack installed on Slackware 13.0, with the radiantCMS module, which is working happily at, but I would like to have it at just

Is there a simple answer to this question?

I’ve been playing around with configuration files and restarts for hours, and have had a small degree of success modifying mongrel_cluster.yml to lose the prefix=/radiant, and modifying apps/radiant/conf/radiant.conf, but I can only get the content to display on, no css or formatting with it.

Appreciate any pointers.

No joy.

I have taken prefix: /radiant line out of apps/radiant/config/mongrel_cluster.yml.

My apps/radiant/conf/radiant.conf is as follows:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
        RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ balancer://radiantcluster%{REQUEST_URI} [P,QSA,L]
ProxyPass / balancer://radiantcluster
ProxyPassReverse / balancer://radiantcluster
<Proxy balancer://radiantcluster>
  BalancerMember http://

(without the space in http://

Now my radiant appears in the root at, but without any css formatting. Any ideas? The poster in the other thread seemed to have this issue also, but I can’t see how he resolved it. I have tried both with the ProxyPass lines as posted, and commented out, as was shown in another solution, but both produce the same result.

Thankyou very much,

Edited the normal layout from to match the radiantCMS demo site, and it fixed everything. At the next hurdle, writing my own, but happily convinced the issue is now not with my bitnami config.

Thanks again
