Do not use to install UseResponse

You may face an error with writable files and folders. In this case change permissions for marked folders or files. Use ftp client (SSH) or file manager in your web hosting panel.

If you are installing UseResponse in folder of domain do not forget to replace in .htaccess file a line RewriteBase / to be RewriteBase/[folder_name] or just remove that line

Installation on nginx

By default, we provide rewrite rules for apache and IIS. But if you are installing UseResponse on nginx web server, you need to add the following configuration to domain where UR is going to be installed:

location / {
    proxy_buffering off;
    if (!-e $request_filename) {
        rewrite ^/(.*)$ /index.php?q=$1 last;
error_page 404 /index.php;
If UseResponse is installed in the folder of domain, the config for domain should be modified to include the following:
location /myproject/ {
    proxy_buffering off;
    if (!-e $request_filename) {
        rewrite ^/myproject/(.*)$ /index.php?$1? last;
}error_page 404 /index.php;

Once system is installed, remove /installation folder from your server. 

Congratulations: Now you have fresh UseResponse where you can login with credentials entered while installation.
