Local install

First of all, if you're seeing the message 'system folder missing' after launching your browser, then that means you have cloned the repository and have not built the project properly.

  1. Dowload the latest stable release from github or unstable build from bintray. A regular repository clone will not work unless you are brave enough to build the whole project!
  2. Create/locate a new mysql database to install open source point of sale into
  3. Execute the file database/database.sql to create the tables needed
  4. unzip and upload Open Source Point of Sale files to web server
  5. Modify application/config/database.php and modify credentials if needed to connect to your database
  6. Modify application/config/config.php encryption key with your own
  7. Go to your point of sale install public dir via the browser
  8. LOGIN using
  • username: admin
  • password: pointofsale
  1. Enjoy
  2. Oops an issue? Please make sure you read the FAQ, wiki page and you checked open and closed issue on GitHub. PHP display_errors is disabled by default. Create an application/config/.env file from the .env.example to enable it in a development environment.

Local install using Docker

From now on ospos can be deployed using Docker on Linux, Mac or Windows. This setup dramatically reduces the number of possible issues as all setup is now done in a Dockerfile. Docker runs natively on mac and linux, but will require more overhead on windows. Please refer to the docker documentation for instructions on how to set it up on your platform.

  • To build and run the image, download the latest build from bintray and issue following commands in a terminal with docker installed
    docker-compose build
    docker-compose up 
  • If you want to run from the latest git source, then use docker and composer to run the build
  docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/app composer/composer install
  docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/app -w /app lucor/php7-cli php bin/install.php translations develop
  docker run --rm -it -v $(pwd):/app -w /app digitallyseamless/nodejs-bower-grunt sh -c "npm install && bower install"
  docker-compose build
  docker-compose up

Cloud install

If you choose DigitalOcean through this link, you will get a $10 credit for a first month. Check the wiki for further instructions on how to install the necessary components.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
