安装和更新Feng Office


Before installing Feng Office make sure that your server matches these requirements:


For a fresh installation, follow these steps:


Upgrading an existing Feng Office installation can be done either by automatic upgrade or by manual upgrade. The usual and much simpler way is the automatic upgrade. If you experience problems with the automatic upgrade (i.e. because your webserver doesn't have write access to all folders) you can still do a manual upgrade (which is more or less the same procedure as in any PHP application).

To solve this problem you have to enter your database parameters manually into the file config/config.php. To do so, copy the content of the file config/empty.config.php into config/config.php and enter the correct values for the constants defined there.


Let's say you have installed your Feng Office in the following directory:

Now you decide to move this installation to:

Simply moving all files with your FTP client is the first step, but that's not enough - you have to go through these two steps as well:
