Feng Office Installer

The installer counts with 4 different steps that will guide you through the installation.

Step 1

This is a Welcome screen as shown below:

Once you read the information, click Next

Step 2

In this step, the Installer checks your web server environment to make sure it complies with the requirements.

If there are any problems, the installer will tell you about them with the text marked in red. Once the problem is solved (i.e.: installing the missing plugin or providing access to certain folders), go back to the installer and hit Retry to check again. Once you get only green messages as shown next, it means everything is fine and you may proceed with the installation by clicking on Next.

Step 3

In this step you will have to provide the following information:

  • Database Type: Select MySQL
  • Host name: Type in your host name. In the example below it is localhost
  • User name: Type in your MySQL username
  • Password: Type in your MySQL password
  • Data Base name: Type in the name of the database to hold this Feng Office installation. If it does not exist, a new one will be created
  • Table prefix: Type in fo_ (which is the default option)
  • Data Base engine: we suggest selecting InnoDB

Within the Other settings options on the bottom, you will have to select which plugins to be installed. By default, all of the available plugins will be selected. Please bear in mind the following:

  1. The core_dimensions plugin is compulsory. You must install it.
  2. The workspaces plugin can be obtained through the Feng Office Community Edition, and it is required to use the Workspaces module
  3. The mail plugin can be obtained through the Feng Office Community Edition, and you will have to install it in order to use the incorporate the email client Feng Office provides

Step 4

Click the Finish button to quit the installer.

Adding the first user
