Installing AdaptCMS

Below we will explain the exact steps you must take to install AdaptCMS 3.x. First, you must have the below in order to run the CMS:

Note We plan on support for Nginx in the future.

Installation through FTP/SFTP

First, download the latest version of AdaptCMS at the download page. Then open the archive file and connect to the FTP editor of your choosing (we recommend Filezilla). Extract the zip locally and upload either the whole folder or the contents inside 'adaptcms' to where you want to install the cms.

Before you follow the on-screen guide, chmod the following files/folders:

Chmod the above to 777, using filezilla you can do this by right clicking on the file/folder and selecting File Permissions and in the input box labeled Numeric Value, enter 777. Once this is done, open up your site:

http://yourwebsite.com/adaptcms

The rest is easy, if you meet the requirements you can click on "Install" - if not, it will tell you what the problem is and how to correct it. The next page you enter in your MySQL information, setup database tables, create the admin account and then - success!

After installation is done, we recommend chmoding the database file to 644 and after you have logged into the admin panel - chmod the config.php to 644 as well.

Installation through Command Line/SSH

	wget http://www.adaptcms.com/downloads/latest_adaptcms.tgz
tar -xzf latest_adaptcms.tgz
chmod -R 777 app/webroot/ app/Config/database.php app/Config/config.php app/Plugin/ app/Old_Plugins/ app/tmp/ app/View/

After installation is done, we recommend chmoding the database file to 644 and after you have logged into the admin panel - chmod the config.php to 644 as well. See the above on more details on the installation process.
