This is a step by step tutorial on how to install GoClixy - Business Directory Script on a web server.
Note: The license file is domain specific and must exist in the application folder to run GoClixy.
GoClixy requires PHP v5.6/7.1, so change the PHP version in your cPanel accordingly. You can also contact your Hosting Provider for the PHP Version change.
GoClixy core files are encoded using ioncube loader, your server must have PHP ioncube-loader extension installed to run the application.
You can easily figure out if IonCube is running by looking at the information from PHP info. To check this you need to create a PHP file (e.g. phpinfo.php) with the content as follows:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Follow this step only if your Hosting Server is running PHPv5.6.
Copy and replace all the files and folders in the upload/application folder with the contents in the phpv5.6/application folder (extracted earlier - Step 1).
Note: You can completely remove the existing modules folder from the upload/application and paste it from the phpv5.6/application.
Now, you need to upload the extracted files and folders to your web server. The easiest way to upload the GoClixy installation files is via cPanel File Manager or you can also use FTP.
IMPORTANT: FOR SECURITY REASONS, THE APPLICATION, GOCLIXY, VENDOR, .HTACCESS AND ROBOTS.TXT FOLDERS/FILES MUST BE PLACED ABOVE WEB ROOT OR PUBLIC_HTML SO THAT THEY CANNOT BE DIRECTLY ACCESSED VIA A BROWSER. BY DEFAULT, .HTACCESS FILES ARE INCLUDED IN EACH FOLDER TO PREVENT DIRECT ACCESS, BUT IT IS BEST TO REMOVE THEM FROM PUBLIC ACCESS FULLY IN CASE THE WEB SERVER CONFIGURATION CHANGES.
You must create a MySQL database and assign a user to it with full permissions. Once you create your MySQL Database and the User, be sure to note down the database name, username and password you just created. You will need them for the installation process.
If you have uploaded the installation files, simply open your browser and navigate to your main domain (i.e. http://mydomain.com ), depending where you have uploaded the GoClixy installation files. Once you do that, you will be redirected to GoClixy Web Installer. The first step of the installation process will show you all pre-installation checks. If your servers meet all GoClixy requirements, you will see each line green. Click Next button to proceed further.
Fill the information as described:
Once you have filled all the required information, press the Nextbutton to proceed with the database configuration.
On this screen, you must enter the necessary information for your MySQL database as noted in Step 3.
After entering all the necessary information, press the Submit button to start the GoClixy installation process.
Note: GoClixy comes with Default Sample data which serves as an example and can be used to build your yellow pages directory.
Within minutes you will be redirected to the last screen of the GoClixy installation.
