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 v7.2, 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:
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 WEBROOT 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.
That is all!
