There are a few things that you will need to have set up in order to run Gitamin:
- A web server: Nginx, Apache (with mod_rewrite), or Lighttpd
- PHP 5.6.4+ with the following extensions: mbstring, pdo_mysql
- MySQL or PostgreSQL
By default Hifone comes with a .env.example file. You'll need to rename this file to just .env regardless of what environment you're working on.
If you're using SQLite then your .env file should not contain a DB_HOST key. You'll also need to touch ./database/hifone.sqlite and give it the required permissions.
Directories within the
storage and the
bootstrap/cache directories should be writable by your web server or Hifone will not run.
Step 1: Shell
git clone https://github.com/Hifone/Hifone cd Hifone cp .env.example .env vi .env # write database settings composer install --no-dev -o php artisan hifone:install chmod -R 777 storage chmod -R 777 bootstrap/cache chmod -R 777 public/uploads
If you have problems to open the Page, enter the Following:
php artisan vendor:publish
Step 2: Browser
Now go to http://your_site_domain/ and have fun!
