Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase (FAQ)  »  Viewing Article

Editions: Community, Professional, Enterprise, Enterprise Ultimate, Corporate
Versions: <2.6.0

After you installed the hosting for your server VIMP GmbH - Installing the Webserver, Webhosting and VIMP on Debian and Ubuntu and the ttranscoding tools you are ready to install the VIMP package.


Uploading the VIMP package

Upload the VIMP package into the folder /var/www/ via SFTP. The advantage of SFTP is that we don't have to install an additional FTP server. If SFTP is not supported by your FTP client we recommend the free Filezilla client.

As root go to the folder, extract the package and modify the user and group:

cd /var/www
tar xzf VIMP.tar.gz # extracting the tarball. As root all files have the correct permissions.
chown -R www-data:www-data *


Installing VIMP

If installing VIMP Community or ViMP Professional you have to install the SourceGuardian PHP extension first. Find the installation guide here.

The installation script creates all VIMP files, sets up the database, inserts basic data to the database und adjusts the file permissions.

We only need a single command to execute the installation on the shell:

./symfony framework:init mysql://DATABASEUSER:DBPASSWORD@localhost/DATENBASENAME

This task deletes all controllers that are not necessary for the production environment. For setting up a development environment you should use the option --keep-controllers to avoid this. The command './symfony help framework:init' displays all options of the init task.
