How to install DiY-CMS manually

  By: admin   tags Date Added: Thursday 14-10-2010

If you ever ran into an issue during the installation process of diy-cms this blog will solve your problems using the good old manual way. In this blog I will explain how to install DiY-CMS on the local server on your website manually and without the built-in installation wizard.

First of all we need to create a database using phpMyAdmin. Open phpmyadmin and then create a database as shown in image 1 below. Make sure that you select the utf-8 encoding to both database encoding and connection collation. This is to ensure that DiY-CMS will function correctly when displaying non-English characters or using a different language such as Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese or other languages.

Second step: click on import at the top of the page. Then import this file “install/install.sql” to the database as shown in image 2.

Third step: Remove install folder from the DiY-CMS folder.

Forth Step: open file “admin/conf.php” and replace the values between the curly brackets {} (along with the {} themselves} with the appropriate values:

$CONF['dbname'] = "{server_db}"; // Database name
$CONF['dbuser'] = "{server_un}"; // Database user
$CONF['dbpword'] = "{server_pass}"; // Database password

$CONF['site_path'] = "{path}"; // Path to your site
$CONF['upload_path'] = "{uppath}"; // Path to the upload folder
$CONF['site_url'] = '{sitelink}'; // website URL
$CONF['site_mail'] = "{sitemail}"; // Website Email
$CONF['site_title'] = "{sitetitle}"; // Website Title
$CONF['cookie_domain'] = '{domain}'; // Website URL

Final Step: At this stage you would be able to login to your website using these credentials:
Username: admin
Password: admin

Change your password to whatever you want then customize the CMS to your needs.

First Tutorial: installing DiY-CMS v1.0

  By: admin   tags Date Added: Wednesday 07-04-2010

I have recently add a video on youtube explaining how to install diy-cms on a local server. Of course, same procedure can be followed when installing the cms on your website.

I tried to upload the video in high-definition quality, but for some reasons the program that I am using shrank the video a bit. It is in a very good quality, but it is not the one I hoped for.

Anyway, here is the video:

Here is the link to the video in case you were not able to view it on this blog.

Please leave any comments you like to develop the style of tutorials, so I can improve my way of presenting tutorials.

I hope it is useful!!
