​Installation​

The first task in the XOOPS installation is to copy the files you extracted from the XOOPS distribution archive to your server.

Copy the xoops_data and xoops_lib Directories on Your Server

  • From the htdocs directory, copy the contents of the xoops_data directory to the relocated/renamed directory you have decided on.

  • From the htdocs directory, copy the contents of the xoops_lib directory to the relocated/renamed directory you have decided on.

Filezilla Create Folder
Filezilla Upload Data and Lib Directories

Copy the Remaining Files

  • Copy the remaining contents of the htdocs folder where it can be accessed by your server

Filezilla Upload XOOPS

Make Sure These Directories and Files are writable

Normally, these will be created correctly during the copy processes in the previous steps.

  • mainfile.php

  • uploads/ and all the files and directories it contains

  • xoops_data/ (as relocated/renamed) and all the files and directories it contains

Launch the XOOPS Installer

With a web browse, access the URL to your site's web root, where you copied the contents of the distribution archive's htdocs directory. NOTE: Use the URL you want to use for your site here (i.e. include https: if your server is setup for SSL, and include or exclude a www subdomain as appropriate.)
