Class 'Omeka_Application' not found

After installing and setting up the database, I get the following when I go to my Curatescape’s project folder:

[29-Aug-2018 20:33:49 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class ‘Omeka_Application’ not found in /home4/frienhd3/public_html/history/index.php:14
Stack trace:
#0 {main}
thrown in /home4/frienhd3/public_html/history/index.php on line 14

I’ve done all except the last suggestion made here: where it mentions Wordpress and the .htaccess file.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Or a working example for that .htaccess file? Is it the base public folder .htaccess file or the Curatescape .htaccess file?


This sounds like an issue with your Omeka installation and not necessarily related to Curatescape. I’d suggest using the Omeka forum at unless the issue is caused by one of the Curatescape tools. Generally speaking, though, the best way to avoid conflicts between different CMSs (Omeka and WordPress) is to use subdomains ( rather than subfolders ( Then you won’t need to mess with special .htaccess changes.
