I think your idea is great, but some how I'm unable to make it work.
I'm running a web server in ubuntu with Apache 2.4, PHP 5.6.20 and Mysql 5.7. I've followed the installation instructions and I'm able to login to the administration panel. But, I cannot add new templates and every time I browse to any page mydomain.com/index.php/anypage.html it just gives me a 404 error.
I've used the provided .htaccess (with the considerations for apache 2.4) and it seems to be working because I can enter to the admin area via mydomain.com/administrator. But all the pages are still giving me the 404 error.
There is no Pages in the Pages table and I'm unable to create a new one because the template table is also empty. What am I missing? I really like to make this work.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me.
