We recommend installation be performed by a developer.
- Choose your preferred way of getting hold of the code and place it on your local or hosted server. The root of your domain (e.g. http://yourdomain.com/) is usually the best place.
- Open your web browser and visit the URL of the newly placed files (e.g. http://yourdomain.com/ or localhost/foldername/ if stored locally). You should now see the SilverStripe installer welcome screen in your browser.
- Follow the prompts and you will be asked to input your database configuration, administrative details and other configuration settings.
- When complete you may sign-in and start using SilverStripe. Return to http://yourdomain.com/admin/ anytime thereafter to sign-in.
Requires Apache/IIS, PHP, MySQL (see instructions for using PostgreSQL or Microsoft SQL Server as your database). If you’re installing to your computer you will need to install a server environment, try MAMP or WAMP. For more info go to server requirements.
