Run On Localhost

Here is a simple tutorial on how to run Open on a Linux Apache Web Server.

1) Install Git by Running the following commands

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install git

2) CD (Change Directory) to the Apache directory by running

cd /var/www/

in Apache Server versions 2.5 and above, the folder is /var/www/html instead of /var/www

3) Now do this to pull the source code from GitHub to the folder "open" in /var/www

git clone open
Now open's files will be in the `/var/www/open` directory

4) Using Replacing Softwares like ([regexxer], replace the string with localhost/open on the directory where you cloned the open repository. Also, there might be URL strings like open\.subinsb\.com in certain files which won't be covered with this replacing. An example is cdn/js/main.js file on open.externalLinks function.

5) Create a MySQL database named "open"

6) Execute The SQL Code in the file tables.sql

8) Open file config.php of Open root directory and set the Database credentials.

9) Go To http://localhost/open to see Open live in action
