Create Installation File For Any PHP Project

- 1 answer

The title can be a little bit misleading but this is what I need to achieve. I have a project which resides in Github. I need to install these files in multiple domains.

So just like wordpress I need to have a simple PHP installation page where I take all the necessary details like site name, DB username , DB name etc and when I click install button it is going to do the following.

> git clone the project files
> create new directory
> Run composer install (Assume the project is Laravel 4 App)
> Checking the provided DB user and pass if they are correct, if yes migrating the DB, if No redirect back with an error.
> Display the 'installation success' page if everything is OK.

I am aware that some activities may require admin privilege and I have it. The web server behind all domains is Apache. I have never done this kind of thing before and so I have no Idea where to get started. Any link or detailed explanations will be fine for now.



Checkout the project Laravel Web Installer its a step towards what you want, it will al Installer its a step towards what you want, it will allow a user to do all the configuration from a web interface.

It also can also handle checking for server requirements, checking folder permissions, migrate the database and seed tables.
