Installing PHPVibe involves several steps.

Here's a general guide to help you with the installation process.
Keep in mind that specific steps might vary depending on the version of PHPVibe you are installing, and it's always a good idea to refer to the official documentation for the most accurate and up-to-date instructions.

Before you begin, ensure that your server meets the minimum requirements for PHPVibe. Common requirements include:
  • Apache web server (nGinx will do too)
  • PHP version 7.3 or higher
  • MySQL/Maria database
  • FFMPEG 3.x+ (for video processing)
  • GD Library (for image processing)
  • Enable: allow_url_fopen, base64 encoding, shell_exec
Keep in mind these semi-optional ones too:
  • Off safe mode, SQL safe mode
  • Mod_security tuned to be tolerant or turned off

Step 1: Download PHPVibe
Visit the official PHPVibe website or the repository where you obtained the PHPVibe files https://github.com/PHPVibe/PHPVibe-CMS. Download the latest version of PHPVibe or choose a stable version from https://github.com/PHPVibe/PHPVibe-CMS/tags
Step 2: Extract Files
Once the download is complete, extract the PHPVibe files to your local machine.
Step 3: Create a Database
Create a new database and user for PHPVibe. Note down the database name, username, and password; you'll need these during the installation. Also, make sure you've assigned full permissions to the user on the database.

Step 4: Configuration

Locate the configuration files (named
) in the PHPVibe files you extracted.
Open the file using a text editor and fill in the necessary information, such as database connection details, and website url (with an ending slash /).
Step 5: Upload Files
Upload the PHPVibe files to your web server. You can use FTP or a file manager provided by your hosting provider.
Step 6: Set Permissions
Ensure that the appropriate file and folder permissions are set. Directories like
and its children need to have write permissions.
Step 7: Run Installation Script
Visit your website in a web browser. If everything is set up correctly, you should be redirected to the PHPVibe installation script. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
Step 8: Finalize Installation
Once the installation is complete, you'll likely be prompted to remove the installation directory or take other finalization steps. Follow these instructions.
Step 9: Test Your Installation
Visit your PHPVibe site and ensure that it's working as expected. You may need to log in to the admin panel to configure additional settings.
