The setup of WBCE CMS is done in four steps:
a) You should first check to make sure your server meets the system requirements.
b) During the installation you will need the username and password of the MySQL database, so you should make note of this data.
c) Determine into which directory on the server the (sub-) domain points or configure it according to your needs.
We provide the latest stable release of WBCE CMS in the download area of wbce.org as a zip file. Download this file and unzip it to your local computer. The zip file includes a directory named "wbce" and a bunch of other documents:
Copy the contents of the "wbce" directory, but (usually) not the "wbce" directory itself, into the target directory of your server. The following example shows (on the left side) the structure of an installation where the domain yourdomain.tld points to your new WBCE CMS installation. The other structure would lead to the situation, that the wbce site is located under yourdomain.com/wbce - this works too, but might not be the result you desire.
Ready, steady, go: open your FTP client and copy the files to your server. This will take some time.
Hint! The fastest way to transfer the WBCE CMS files onto your server is to zip the prepared contents of the wbce folder (not the folder itself), to name the zip file wbce.zip and copy this single zip file to your server - this is about 99% faster than copying the thousands of single files one by one. To unzip the file on your server, simply download the wbceunzip.txt here, rename it to wbceunzip.php and copy it into the directory where you put wbce.zip. Now point your browser to yourdomain.tld/wbceunzip.php, wait for the success message and delete the wbce.zip and wbceunzip.php by FTP. When this is done, continue with the installation process.
When all files are in the right place on your server, close your FTP client and point your browser to the URL where WBCE CMS should be installed. If you followed the described steps, you will see the WBCE CMS installation wizard which will be explained on the following page.
If the installer does not show up, check the following options:
