Installing without the Automated Installer
Installing without the Automated Installer
Your web server may not have the correct version of PHP or MySQL to use the
installer, or it may not support InnoDB format for the databases. If that is the case we
can manually install CiviCRM.
We need to open PHPMyAdmin and select the database we want to use, such as
our Drupal database, and then click the Import tab at the top to allow us to perform
some SQL commands to set up the database. From this page we need to browse
to the civicrm_41.mysql file from where we extracted CiviCRM on to our local
computer, which should be in the folder civicrm/sql/ , then we need to click Go to
perform the import.
Next we need to import the data into the new tables that have just been created; we
just follow the steps above but select the file civicrm_data.mysql to import.
Finally, we need to edit the configuration file for CiviCRM. Let's open the sample
configuration file from our computer, edit it, and then upload it to our store; the
sample file is called civicrm.settings.php.sample .
Within this file we need to edit the following lines:
44 (Drupal's database connection)—We should use the connection string
from Drupal's settings file.
90 (CiviCRM's database connection)—If we are going to use Drupal's
database for CiviCRM data (we don't have to) we should also put Drupal's
connection string here.
134 (CiviCRM path)—This is the file system path to CiviCRM on our server.
135 (CiviCRM template compiler path)—This is the system path to
CiviCRM's template compiler.
169 (Our site's URL)—This is .
More information and help on the values of these settings is available in the
comments of the configuration file itself.
The configuration file then needs to be saved with a new name of civicrm.
settings.php and uploaded to the sites/default/ folder in our site.
Setting up CiviCRM
CiviCRM is now uploaded and set up, and ready to use. Let's enable the module and
get it up and running!
