Server Recommendation

  • You can easily install ultimate POS in your localhost.
  • If you want to make it online accessible – We recommend using Cloud host – as it provides better flexibility or control of the server. You can use AWS or Digital Ocean or search for some others. Our demo site is set up on Digital Ocean.
  • If you decide to use Shared hosting make sure to follow the instruction here for uploading the script – Instructions

Installation steps

  1. Extract the downloaded zip file. Inside that, you will find the POS zip codebase and a license pdf. Extract the POS zip file.
  2. Upload the extracted POS zip file in the server document root. You can use a client like FileZilla (https://filezilla-project.org/) or directly SSH into the server to connect and upload the files.
  3. Create a virtual host. Point your host config document root to “<project_directory>/public” directory
  4. Make sure to provide read & write permission to server user (www-data mostly) for codebase directory.
  5. File Permission: Change the file permission as below:
    > /bootstrap/cache 775
    > /public/uploads 775
    > /storage 775 (recursively)
  6. Open your domain link in a browser.
    <your-awesome-domain>.com
    If everything is set properly for above steps it will auto-redirect to the installation page. You will find all further installation details there. Basically, it will have 3 steps to setup the application.
  7. After following all the steps goto <your-awesome-domain>.com and start by registering your business.
  8. Make sure your URL is likewww.yourwebsite.com
    or
    subdomain.yourwebsite.com
  9. If your URL has “public” in it then go to the codebase and rename “optional.htaccess” file to “.htaccess” only.

Note:

  • You can create as many businesses as you want with this.
  • After successful installation, if you visit <your-awesome-domain>.com/install, you will get an error page. If you want to change any further details like the database, database name, host, database password; you can do it by changing in .env file present inside codebase.
