The upstream repository is at: https://github.com/k-box/k-box
K-Box can be installed on most operating systems. The setup is heavily based on Docker.
- Check the system requirements.
- Use an operating system supported by Docker (ideally GNU/Linux; we use Debian)
- Make sure you have installed the latest version of Docker and Docker Compose.
These few commands allow you to quickly install a K-Box locally on your computer for testing purposes.
- Create a directory:
mkdir k-box && cd k-box
- Download configuration file:
curl -o docker-compose.yml https://raw.githubusercontent.com/k-box/k-box/master/docker-compose.example.yml
- Start up services:
docker-compose up -d(when running this for the first time, it will download a lot of data and take a while)
- Create the administrator:
docker-compose exec kbox php artisan create-admin firstname.lastname@example.org
- Visit your K-Box: http://localhost:8080 (you can login to the K-Box with the username
email@example.com the chosen password).
For installation on a server in the Internet or more configuration options, see the documentation on installation of the K-Box.
The K-Box consists of different components:
||PHP and Laravel 5||The interface of the knowledge management system|
||PHP and Symfony 4||Full text search component used for K-Link and K-Box|
||Apache SOLR||Open Source search engine pre-configured for the K-Search|
||MariaDB||A database for the use of the K-Box web application.|
