We will review the steps for a manual installation of Concrete5 on your account. The different steps of the process are quite straight forward and we will review them all so you can get a better understanding on how to install the script on your FastComet account.
The first step is to download the latest stable release of Concrete5. You can complete that via the official Concrete5 website. The link will lead to the download page of the product and you can simply click on the Download button for the latest release. This will guarantee that you stay up-to-date with the latest Concrete5 improvements.
Now, you can easily proceed further with the upload of the Concrete5 files to your account on the server. If you wish to install the script and access it directly using your domain name, you can simply upload the files to the public_html/ directory of your account. However, if you wish to install Concrete5 in a subfolder, you will first have to create it in the public_html/ directory and then upload your Concrete5 files to it.
Then, it is important to perform an upload check and see if all of the files are present on your account and within the exact location, where you would like to install it.
The first step of the process is to choose the language for the installation process. Select the one that you wish to use and click on Choose Language to proceed further.
Next, the system will test if the hosting environment is optimized for a Concrete5 installation. Our servers meet all of the requirements for the application so you can simply click on the Continue to Installation button to proceed.
The next step will request more information on the new website and how it should be configured. The fields that you need to edit are:
You can create a new database and a user assigned to it via cPanel. Simply follow our MySQL Wizard tutorial for information on that.
Once ready, click on the Install Concrete5 button to proceed. The system will automatically initiate the actual installation on the server and display a progress bar for this process.
Congratulations! The installation process is now completed and you will be presented with a message notifying you about that.
