Installation Services

You can install PHPmotion and its tools without professional help. It is fast and simple. The following are the steps to follow.

Step 1

You need to access the download page of the application before you can download the PHPmotion installation archive. Once you find it, fill your email address to register. Press the Download Now option, and it will lead you to a different page. On the new page, you can choose the version of PHPMotion you want. You may choose PHP version 5.2 or PHP version 5.3. If you are unsure of the right version for you, we suggest that you choose version 5.3. It is an improvement of version 5.2. The download process does not take a long time. Once it is complete, move the downloaded archive to your local computer. The folder, phpmotion, will appear on your computer. It is where all your installation files will appear. Connect to your FTP service. If you are unsure of how to do this, you should get the help of someone who does. After you have finished uploading the files, you can view them. If you experience any errors while trying to install PHPmotion, feel free to contact us for help. We will be glad to help you resolve the issue.

Step 2

If you have already accessed the correct location and you can see the installation interface, it is time to move on to the next step. Click on the Continue option, and you will be directed to the next page. On this page, you will find more details if the hosting environment where you have installed your application meets the required standards. Click on the Continue button, and you will find results from permission checks. Click on Continue to move to the next page. That page requires you to fill ‘MySQL Database Details.’ You must have a database before completing this part. If you do not already have one, create it and assign a user. You should then proceed to fill in information about MySQL Host, Database Name, Database Username, and Database Password. Click on the Continue option to access the next page. You will need to provide information about your site including the site name and URL. Choose a date format for your site, system email, and email address. You do not need to change the Server Side Settings unless something goes wrong. If any of the paths are not found, they will be displayed as Unknown.

Step 3

After you have completed all the settings, click on the Continue option to get to the last parts of your setup. You will get to a page that says your installation was successful. Remove the setup folder because you do not need it anymore. Click on the Login to Siteadmin, and you can access the admin area of your website. Congratulations! You have completed the installation process.
