Installation Guide

We have added the installer for easy installation experience and it can be accessed by adding /install at the end url.

Step 1: Preparation

Standard License?

If you have purchased standard license, please run install dependencies before following these steps by running composer install

Requirements

PHP 7.4+ & MySQL 5.7.8+, Installer will check other requirements

Installing on cPanel?

Please don't upload the files to public_html directory but create wims directory one level above (outside public_html) in main directory that is not accessible by public and then upload the files to this wims directory. Lastly create subdomain that points to the wims/public directory. Now replace the yourdomain.com below with subdomain.yourdoamin.com

Installing locally?

Please add a virtual host that should point to public directory in wims full/path/to/wims/public directory then access the virtual host in browser.

TIP

If you need to install in as main domain yourdomain.com but not subdoamin subdomain.yourdoamin.com, you still follow the above instructions and then create symbolic link for public_html ln -s /wims/public /public_html. You can check with your host about this and tell them that you want to secure Laravel installation.

You can access the installer by adding /install at the end of your domain i.e,

  • https: // yourdomain.com / install for main domain installation
