You’ve followed the first part of the installation process. Novius OS files are now installed, the server is set-up and you accesses http://your.domain/novius-os/. You’ve done the hardest, now comes the easy part :-).
This step should be straightforward if you’ve installed Novius OS following the quick procedure. In other cases, don’t worry if a lof of red comes up! Your website just needs writing permissions in some directories. This step gives you the explanations and the commands to run to fix everything.
To fast-track this step, just copy the commands’ summary given at the bottom of the page and copy them in a terminal. You’re done!
You need a MySQL database including a user with the required rights. For shared hosting, your provider must have given you these details. In other cases, here is an example for a localhost database:
CREATE DATABASE `your_db_name` DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `your_db_name`.* TO 'your_user_name'@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'your_password'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Fill in these four fields according to your database configuration.
This will create two files local/config/db.php and local/config/crypt.php and—more importantly-the tables needed for Novius OS to run.
