to install Dolibarr ERP/CRM in few clicks, you must download DoliWamp (the
all-in-one package of Dolibarr for Windows), DoliDeb (the all-in-one package

as root for a new web server virtual host (second choice need to be web
server administrator).
- Create an empty file "htdocs/conf/conf.php" and set permissions for your web
server user (write permissions will be removed once install is finished).
- From your browser, call the dolibarr "install/" page. Url depends on choice

there is no need to run any migrate process.

other where x or y number differs, you must call the Dolibarr "install/"
page in your browser (this should be done automatically at first dolibarr
