It is recommended that you download the latest release from the official website.
Downloading a development version directly from the repository might give you unexpected results, such as visible errors, functions that are still not finished, etc.
Your server needs to be configured with at least:
- php 5.6 or newer (7.1 to be the minimum required version soon)
- MySQL 5.0 or newer
- apache 2.2
- The following php extensions enabled on php.ini
If possible, make sure to have php configured with:
- memory_limit set to 128M or more
- The following php extensions enabled:
How to install on your server
- Download and unzip the lastest version of ProjectSend to a folder of your choice.
- Create a new database on your server. Create/assign a user to it.
When those are steps are completed, follow this instructions:
- Rename includes/sys.config.sample.php to sys.config.php and set your database info there.
- Upload ProjectSend to your selected destination.
- Open your browser and go to https://your-projectsend-folder/install
- Complete the information there and wait for the correct installation message.
Congratulations! ProjectSend is now installed and ready for action! You may login with your new username and password.
How to upgrade to a newer version
- Download your version of choice from the official project page.
- Upload the files via FTP to your server and replace the ones of the older version.
That's it! Your personal configuration file (sys.config.php) is never included on the downloadable versions, so it will not be replaced while upgrading. When a system user logs in to the system version, a check for database missing data will be made, and if anything is found, it will be updated automatically and a message will appear under the menu one time only. Whenever a new version is available, you will be notified in the admin panel via a message shown under the main menu.
