- Upload all files to a webfolder
- Point your browser to http(s)://example.com/install
- Input some settings, DELETE the install folder and you're ready to go.
Do the first two steps above and import the database schema using the CLI (or import via phpMyAdmin)
mysql -uuser -ppassword databasename < docs/paste.mysqlschema.sql
Move docs/config.example.php to config.php and edit
- Set up git
- Fork this repository
- Create a database for PASTE.
- Check out the current master branch of your fork
- Point your browser to http(s)://example.com/install and follow the instructions on screen or import docs/paste.mysqlschema.sql into your database and copy docs/config.example.php to config.php and edit
Now you can start coding and send in pull requests.
- 2.0 to 2.1
Insert the schema changes to your database using the CLI:
mysql -uuser -ppassword databasename < upgrade/2.0-to-2.1.sql
or upload & import upgrade/2.0-to-2.1.sql using phpMyAdmin
- 1.9 to 2.0
Set mod_rewrite in config.php to 1
For Apache, just use .htaccess
For Nginx, use the example config in docs/nginx.example.conf
Paste now supports pastes of upto 4GB in size, and this is configurable in config.php
However, this relies on the value of post_max_size in your PHP configuration file.
// Max paste size in MB. This value should always be below the value of // post_max_size in your PHP configuration settings (php.ini) or empty errors will occur. // The value we got on installation of Paste was: post_max_size = 1G // Otherwise, the maximum value that can be set is 4000 (4GB) $pastelimit = "1"; // 0.5 = 512 kilobytes, 1 = 1MB
To enable registration with OAUTH see this block in config.php
// OAUTH (to enable, change to yes and edit) $enablefb = "no"; $enablegoog = "no"; // "CHANGE THIS" = Replace with your details // Facebook define('FB_APP_ID', 'CHANGE THIS'); // Your application ID, see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/register define('FB_APP_SECRET', 'CHANGE THIS'); // What's your Secret key // Google define('G_Client_ID', 'CHANGE THIS'); // Get a Client ID from https://console.developers.google.com/projectselector/apis/library define('G_Client_Secret', 'CHANGE THIS'); // What's your Secret ID define('G_Redirect_Uri', 'http://urltoyour/installation/oauth/google.php'); // Leave this as is define('G_Application_Name', 'Paste'); // Make sure this matches the name of your application
Everything else can be configured using the admin panel.
