Issues while Installing backdoor

Hi Everyone,

I tried to install Aitor’s extension backdoor. I am using a shared
account running rails on CGI. Is not that fast, but is working well so

I checked out thorugh svn the stable version of backdoor on vendor/extensions (I
placed it on a directory named backdoor).

And then tried to login in the admin interface I receive the message
Application error
Rails application failed to start properly"

May be is a permission mode issue.
I CHMODed 755 the folders, but I still have the issue, and since the
application doesn’t starts I have nothing on log file.

I had same issue when trying to install SASS filter.

Am I missing something?

Could you give me some landmarks for get backdoor to work?

Thank you in advance!


I have it installed as back_door.

CamelCase names get translated to camel_case address I believe.

Maybe your issue.

It worked!!!

Thank you Subsorama!

This is something that is not clear in the documentation wiki. So i
updated the main extension wiki page to comment this ( I added a “Note on extension
directory naming” section at the end.


Thank you Aitor!

Your work will help another newbies like me!
