Pawtucket media configuration

edited August 2019 in Pawtucket

I configured providence in my /providence directory, adding few objects in its DB.

Then I tryed installed pawtucket in the /pawtucket2 directory.
Copying the /providence/media directory into the /pawtucket2/media directory, the website worked properly; see:

To avoid duplicating media files, I Installed pawtucket in a /pawtucket directory and I added the following configuration to the /public_html/ file according to the installation procedure in

site_protocol = https
site_hostname =
ca_url_root = /providence
ca_media_url_root = /providence/media/< app_name>
ca_media_root_dir = < ca_base_dir>/media/< app_name>

The result is the following, with a wrong page layout:

Same result installing pawtucket in the providence subdirectory /providence/pawtucket/ with the same configuration in the /public_html/ file; see:

Could you please help me to understand how to fix the last two configurations?
Thanks, Pietro
