Download and unzip

Or install manually

You need to have Composer installed in order to download Microweber's dependencies (including the Laravel framework).

  • Via Composer

composer create-project microweber/microweber my_site 1.0.x-dev --prefer-dist --no-dev

  • Clone The Repository

Clone this repository (or download as zip) on your server and run composer install in the base folder.


General Requirements

  • HTTP server (Apache, IIS, nginx, etc.)
  • Database server
  • PHP >= 5.4 or HHVM
    • lib-xml must be enabled (with DOM support)
    • GD PHP extension
    • Mcrypt PHP extension

Developer Note: Microweber runs flawlessly on HHVM. We highly recommend replacing PHP with HHVM on Linux environments.

Developer Note: Latest HHVM builds can cause problems with MySQL sockets on some setups. If you are thrown a socket-related exception for MySQL connections and your host is set to localhost try replacing it with

HTTP Server


The mod_rewrite module must be enabled in your Apache configuration. Microweber creates the necessary .htaccess files during installation if you're running on Apache.


You can easily import the .htaccess rewrite rules. Make sure you have enabled the URL Rewrite module for your website.


Add this location directive to your server configuration block. The root directive must point to the root of your Microweber website.

server {
  location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;


You have several choices for database engine. For small websites we highly recommend SQLite.

  • MySQL
  • SQLite
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • PostgreSQL

On the installation screen you can only choose from database drivers your PHP configuration already supports. If you don't see your server of choice in the list you have to enable the corresponding PDO extension for your database server. PHP usually comes with PDO enabled by default.


We are looking for people who want to help us improve Microweber.
