Installation Steps

Add-on Installer Installation:-

  1. Make sure to keep a backup of your existing "app" folder of your current working directory.
  2. Extract the zip file(AddonInstaller-V1.6.zip) to your desktop.
  3. Remove the existing "app" folder from your working directory then copy and paste the extracted "app" folder inside "AddonInstaller-V1.0" to your working directory.
  4. If you are using local machine as storage (excluding Amazon S3), please replace the folder, named "files" inside the "app/webroot" folder from the back up to the current "app/webroot" folder.
  5. Give write permission to "app/Config", "app/tmp", "app/Plugin" and "app/webroot" folders.
  6. Import the "installer.sql" files from the extracted files to your current database. If you have already imported installer.sql before then no need to import it again. Only exception is if you are finding any new version of installer.sql then import to your current database.
  7. Do necessary changes to "constants.php" and "database.php" inside "app/Config" folder again as you have done earlier. For Example SMTP email credentials in constants.php and database credentials in database.php.
