FusionInventory for GLPI installation

Get the archive for your GLPI

First, download archive:

FusionInventory for GLPI tarball name follow this convention:

  • fusioninventory-for-glpi_
  • GLPI major release (0.80, 0.83, 0.84, 0.85, etc)
  • a '+' symbol
  • FusionInventory release

Install or update


You must FIRST disable the FusionInventory plugin via GLPI web interface and then move the plugins/fusioninventory folder out of the plugins/ folder. This ensures any deprecated files will be properly removed.

{% include warning.html param="Don't click on UNINSTALL link. If you do this, you will LOOSE all FusionInventory data." %}


{% include warning.html param="If a previous FusionInventory version is already installed, you must read the Update section." %}

It's also always a good idea to do a backup of your database.

  • Uncompress the archive into the plugin folder of GLPI. File list seems to be like :

    • folder glpi
      • folder plugins
        • _folder fusioninventory
          • file index.php
          • file hook.php
          • folder front
          • folder inc
  • Connect to GLPI

  • Go in the menu Setup > Plugins
  • Install the plugin FusionInventory
  • Activate FusionInventory

These operations will create or upgrade the database and set the correct rights on the plugin. Do the same for all fus* plugins
