How to install NexoPOS
If you’re running XAMPP or MAMP even LAMP, you’ll have to create a new folder on the “htdocs” folder of your virtual server. You can call it “nexopos” if you want. This will let you access to the system only from your computer (or from computers connected to the same local network than yours). For thoses who will like to install NexoPOS on a remote server, you’ll have to upload the files to your main root, usually “public_html/” or you can also install it as a sub domain (sub directory). In this case, you can upload NexoPOS using a FTP client like “FileZilla“.
When you’re set with the upload, when you’ll access to your domain (it could be “localhost/nexopos” or https://yourdomain.com), you’ll see a welcome page like following :
This is what we call the setup wizard. It’s really simple and don’t require to have a strong knowledge on web development. From that page, you can directly select the language, by selecting the language and by clicking on “Select your language“. Then click on “Define database configuration“.
From here, you’ll have to input all your database configuration. It’s really simple. If you did have access to that information, please contact your hosting provider. With a virtual server, the configuration is usually :
- Username : root,
- Password : (there is usually no password for that user)
- Database : the name of the database you’ve created on phpmyadmin.
When you’re set with that, just click on “Save Settings”, and Tendoo CMS, which is actually under what NexoPOS is running, will install the system with all the tables.
The next step is where you define your website details like :
- The website name (it could be your business name)
- The language you would like to save (you can leave it as it)
- Your user name (we strongly recommend you to avoid “admin”, if it’s hosted remotely)
- Your password (6 characters at least)
When you’re have it done, click on “Continue To Dashboard“.
Before reaching the dashboard, you’ll have to start a session. You’ll then be redirected to the login page, where you can provide your username and your password. After that, you’ll access to the dashboard.
If the next page looks like this that “Bravo”, you did it, you’ve successfully installed NexoPOS. Now you just have to learn how to define the basic settings.
