Many times, when something goes wrong, running the command
$ php symfony dm:setup
will solve it, or at least help to diagnostic the problem
How to solve 40% of the problems
While Diem and symfony 1.4 are not stable,
check you have the very last version of Diem from svn :
$ svn co http://svn.symfony-project.com/plugins/diemPlugin/trunk diem-5.0.0_DEV
...and the very last version of symfony :
$ svn co http://svn.symfony-project.com/branches/1.4 symfony-1.4
Diem front pages require less than 16Mb. But sometime, when an administrator performs modifications, Diem needs more memory. Page synchronization, search index repopulation and image resizing may require 48Mo.
Solution: Edit the setting memory_limit in the php.ini file. The more, the better.
Folder permissions are probably too restrictive, and Diem is not allowed to generate the files.
Solution: run the following command :
$ php symfony dm:permissions
If some tests fail, change matching folders permissions with
$ chmod -R 777 my_folder
Then, if the front, click the "Update project" button.
If front templates are still missing, run
$ php symfony dmFront:generate
and you should see a diagnostic of the problem.
Diem does not interfere with doctrine migrations.
Solution : See the symfony documentation and the doctrine documentation about migrations.
As for now, we have to admit this feature is not very usable. But it works :
Solution : First, display the page structure by clicking on the magnifier icon on the lower toolbar. The reload the page (F5). It should be easier now to drag and drop widget into zones.
Yes indeed. Improve browser support is one of the priorities.
Solution : use Firefox
Not yet. Currently, only mysql is supported. Postgresql support is planned for the 5.1 version.
Not yet, but it may be included in 5.0 release.
You can decide what Diem will become. We will focus developments on what you need.
