Downloading and Installing B+

0. Prerequisites

To install B+, the server must meet the following requirements:

  • Web Server with PHP capabilities. For example, Apache >= 2.4.
  • PHP >= 5.6.4.
  • OpenSSL PHP Extension.
  • PDO PHP Extension.
  • Mbstring PHP Extension.
  • Tokenizer PHP Extension.
  • XML PHP Extension.
  • Database Server. For example, MySQL Server 5.5.
  • Database driver for PHP.
  • Composer.

1. Download

Clone B+ from GitHub (git clone or download a release version from here. Place all files in a directory you can use as document root of your web server.

2. Web Server configuration

The Web Server's document root must be the public directory of the B+ code. AllowOverride must be enabled in this directory.

3. Data cofiguration

The database and all the tables needed can be created using de SQL script included in database/sql/bpositive.sql.

Compressed files for each project must be stored under storage/app directory. By default, there is a disk named 'bpositive' configured to load files from app/bpositive, with this default configuration, files must be stored in storage/app/bpositive/files. Storage can be customized in config/filesystems.php.

3. Install

All dependencies in B+ are managed using Composer. Just open a terminal on the root directory of B+ and run:

composer install

4. B+ configuration

All the parameters can be customized in the .env file. At least, you need to customize the following parameters:

  • APP_KEY: Make sure this key is set and remain secret.
  • APP_DEBUG: If enabled, errors will be displayed on the client browser*
  • APP_LOG_LEVEL: Sets the log level.
  • APP_URL: URL where B+ will be runing.

Last but not least, directories within the storage and bootstrap/cache should be writable by the Web Server.

5. B+ Web Page

If you followed all the previous steps, B+ should be accesible from your Web Server root URL using any Web Browser with JavaScript enabled.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
