Requirements


Web server: Apache 2.2 or grater (recommended)
PHP / MySQL: Your web server must be running at least PHP 5.5 and MySql 5.x.

Before installation

  • 1. Login to your server administration panel and create new MySql Database.
  • 2. Write down your database name, username, password and host.

Installtion with installer

After extracting the zip archive you'll find a folder called script. Upload all its content into your domain's root directory via FTP, then open your website in the browser. You will be redirected to installer page automatically.

You'll need to provide your database connection details that will be used to create database structure. Installer will check directories permissions and create required configuration files.

Manual installation

  • 1. Import db-structure.sql file located in /Install folder into your database.
  • 2. Open Uploads folder and change permissions for all subdirectories to 0777.
  • 3. Proceed to Libs folder and rename Settings.php.bak to Settings.php.
  • 4. Open file and fill in MYSQL connection details.

First login

After successful installation open your website in the browser and login to admin panel:

  • Login: admin Password: admin123

To change your default password open your Dashboard from "My Account" dropdown menu and select "Change password".

From inside administration panel you can customize many different sections of your website. First open General settings tab and change your website's brand, main page title and logo.

All meta tags and titles can be customized in translation file located in Libs/Lang/en_EN.php

Enabling HTTP Secure (HTTPS)

Proceed to Libs folder located in your domains root path and open Settings.php file in text editor.
Locate line 4 and change http to https. Remember to save changes.

Now open .htaccess file located in your domains root folder and find line 256
Remove all hashes and save file.

Troubleshooting

The most common issues are related to insufficient permissions on files and folders. If you can't save settings in admin panel, upload or save media files or getting permissions error, please make sure that script can write to those files / folders:

  • /Libs/settings.ini - main configuration file
  • /Template/Theme/ad_* files - advertisement and custom HTML
  • /Uploads folder and all its subdirectories

If you’re not sure how to change your permissions or what your permissions should be, your web host will be able to point you in the right direction.
