This guide will assume you have all the software components already installed (including Ruby, MySQL etc...) as defined on the system requirements page.
All your Sirportly data is stored in a MySQL database which you will need to create before you can continue. Your database should be created with the
utf8 character set and the
utf8_unicode_ci collation. You can call the database whatever you want and you'll be asked later in this process. You should also create a user which has full access to your newly created database.
mysql$ CREATE DATABASE `sirportly` CHARSET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci; mysql$ GRANT ALL ON sirportly.* TO `sirportly`@`localhost` IDENTIFIED BY "a_secure_password";
To continue, you will need your 25 character licence key which will have been provided to you by e-mail when you purchased your licence. If you have not purchased a licence yet, you can do so here.
Once you have your key, you need to download our installation script and execute it from a bash terminal. This will then ask you to enter your licence key, we will download the latest version of the software and proceed to install it. During this stage you will also be prompted to accept our licence agreement, enter your database connection details as well as a few other details (including the path you wish to install the software into).
$ wget sirportly.com/install/install.sh $ bash install.sh $ start sirportly
This installation script will perform a number of actions on your system:
sirportlywill be created which will run any Sirportly processes.
The setup tool will automatically create an admin user which you can use to login for the first time. Once you have logged in you should ensure that you change the password to something more secure.
