  • PHP >= 7.1.3
  • OpenSSL PHP Extension
  • PDO PHP Extension
  • Mbstring PHP Extension
  • Tokenizer PHP Extension
  • XML PHP Extension
  • Ctype PHP Extension
  • JSON PHP Extension
  • BCMath PHP Extension

Folder Structure

ZHXCore should be installed within your domains webroot folder and the root folder within you configuration file set to: path/to/root/public.

Example: /var/www/html

  • Upload ZHXCore to /var/www/html
  • Edit your virtual host file to root folder /var/www/html/public
  • Save and restart webserver

ZHXCORE can only be run as a top level site and not from a sub-domain.

  • This is fine: domain.com
  • This is not okay: domain.com/zhxcore


Once you have setup the folder and virtual host, lets install.

  • Rename .env.example to .env
  • Open .env and set the following parameters
    • Database Parameters
    • App Name
    • App Url
    • Adjust any other setting as you deem fit.

Once saved, open up a command line terminal and go to your websites folder (/var/www/html) and run

php artisan zhxcore:install and follow the prompts

Congratulations, your ZHXCORE platform is installed and ready to do!
