Installation of ApPHP MicroBlog (version 4.0.0 or later)


Installation of ApPHP MicroBlog


A new installation of ApPHP MicroBlog is a very straight forward process:

Step 1. Uncompressing downloaded file.


Decompress the ApPHP MicroBlog script archive. The archive will create a directory called "PHPMB_XYZ", where XYZ represents a number of current version (for ex.: _201 means version number 2.0.1).


Step 2. Uploading files.


Upload this directory (all files and sub-directories it includes) to your document root (public_html, www, httpdocs etc.) or to your "microblog site" directory using FTP.

Pay attention: DON'T use the capital letters in the name of the folder (for Linux users). For example:
public_html/
or
public_html/{microblog-site directory}/


Step 3. Creating Database and User.


Using your hosting Control Panel, phpMyAdmin or another tool, create new database and user, and assign that user to the database. Write down the database host, name of the database, username and password. Grant this user all needed privileges on that database to perform installation procedure.


Step 4. Setting Up Access Permissions.


Check access permissions to following directories: images/ and protected/tmp/. Make sure that these directories are "writable" (often this means 755 access mode).


Step 5. Running Setup Wizard.


Now you can run setup wizard. To do this, open your Internet browser and type in Address Bar following:
http://{www.mydomain.com}/
or
http://{www.mydomain.com}/{microblog-site directory}/
If the script still not installed you will see the setup wizard starting page. Follow the instructions on the screen. You will be asked to enter: database host, database name, username and password. Also you need to enter admin email, username and password, that will be used to access the administration area of the site. After successful installation you will see an appropriate message.


Step 6. Deleting installation files.


After successful installation you will get an appropriate message and link to login to backoffice. For security reasons we recoomend now to delete immediately all files from directory protected/data/.


Congratulations, you now have ApPHP MicroBlog installed!
