"Education is a journey, not a race"


  • Web server / PHP 8+
  • SQL database (MySQL / MariaDB)


  1. Download and unzip: Stable Release or Latest Version
  2. Create a database and set the credentials in cfg/config.ini (uncomment)
  3. Upload all files to your web server
  4. Make the directories log and tmp writeable
  5. Run YOUR-URL/setup to get your ID and PIN (owner)

It is recommended to point the web server to the public directory so that no one from external has access to the project data and configuration - you can do this in the preferences of the web server or in the dashboard of your web hoster

If a problem occurs, you can check the log files in the log folder - The first time you set up the project, you will get a message in log/error.log that the database was not found - this is intentional and can be ignored

Folder Structure

  • cfg - Configuration
  • lib - Fat-Free Framework
  • log - Log files
  • public - Web directory
  • res - Resources
  • src - Source code
  • tmp - Temporary files (Cache)

You can change the configuration file: cfg/config.ini
