tip

Make sure to read all the information below before attempting to install YetiForce Portal2

Requirements

Before the installation, check if your server complies with all the requirements. The portal has the same requirements as the YetiForce system

info

A person who is going to install the Portal system should have at least basic knowledge of web servers, databases and server privileges. 99% of installation issues come from people with insufficient experience attempting to install the system. If you are not sure whether you manage on your own, you can ask somebody with adequate IT expertise. The entire installation process will take up from 2 to 10 minutes.

A simplified installation manual can be found at github YetiForcePortal2

YetiForcePortal2 installation

The portal is installed in the same way as the YetiForce system - using the wizard in the browser.

Step 1 - Download and upload system files

First, prepare the installation files. You can download the portal from our official download sources.

danger

We recommend downloading the complete versions, e.g. YetiForcePortal2-6.2-complete.zip. If you download a version that is not marked as complete, you will have to install the libraries using yarn and composer before installing the system.

The right order is important - first yarn, then composer.

A sample installation script can be downloaded from here.

  • Unzip the file, with e.g 7-Zip.
  • Copy the directory to a web server, using e.g. FileZilla, WinSCP.
  • Start the installation wizard from the web level (where you copied the YetiForce Portal files) and follow the steps provided.

Or from the bash console:

cd /home/yfprod/html/
wget -O YetiForcePortal2.zip https://github.com/YetiForceCompany/YetiForcePortal2/releases/download/6.4/YetiForcePortal2-6.4-complete.zip
unzip YetiForcePortal2.zip
rm YetiForcePortal2.zip
chown -R yfprod:yfprod /home/yfprod/html/

Step 2 - Run the installation wizard

Run the target address of your Portal in the browser window, the system should show the installation wizard. If not, there may be some problems, you can try running the address:SITE_URL/index.php?module=Install&view=Install np. https://gitdevportal.yetiforce.com/index.php?module=Install&view=Install
