Installing IP.Nexus

Part of your licensing benefits means that one of our support technicians will install your software at no extra charge. If you would like to take advantage of this, simply submit a support ticket in the client area.

[doctitle]Step One: Backup[/doctitle]
We strongly suggest before you begin the install process that you back up all of your files and database. Your hosting provider should provide you with tools to do this if you are not sure how.

[docwarning]You really should backup first. If, for whatever reason, your install fails our technicians will most likely request you restore from backup so they can proceed from a fresh start.[/docwarning]

Backing up is a good exercise whenever you are installing or upgrading anything. A few extra minutes can save a lot of pain later

[doctitle]Step Two: Downloading[/doctitle]
You can download your software from the client area. Once logged in, select "Purchases" from the left-side menu and download the latest version of IP.Nexus by clicking on the download button.

Once downloaded, unzip the file and it will contain at least an "upload" folder, and possibly "Documentation" and/or "Tools", depending which package you're looking at.

[doctitle]Step Three: Uploading[/doctitle]

[docnote]If you have renamed your admin directory, you should rename the admin folder in the "upload" directory to whatever you have renamed it to on your IP.Board installation. If you are not sure, you should assume that you have not renamed the directory and can ignore this instruction.[/docnote]

The destination of the files will be the same as that of IP.Board. If you uploaded IP.Board to /forum then you should upload the IP.Nexus files there as well.

Using your FTP client, upload the the contents of the "upload" folder in the expanded zip archive you downloaded. You need to upload all the contents of the upload folder/directory as expanded.

[warnbox]For IP.Nexus you must set your FTP client to binary, and upload all files in binary.[/warnbox]

[doctitle]Step Four: Installing[/doctitle]

You should now run the install file from within your AdminCP by navigating to 'Manage Applications & Modules' on the left hand navigation and clicking on 'Install' alongside the currently installed applications.

If there are any issues with the server set up, files, or CHMOD values of your files, you will be presented with warnings here to correct those before proceeding. Any issues that are found here will normally require you to correct those before installation can occur, otherwise, follow the onscreen instructions. Since this is the first time installing IP.Nexus, it does not matter if you drop tables or not. Note, that if you are re-installing an application, unless told otherwise, you should select "skip".

Once the installer is finished, follow the link to return to the AdminCP.

You may now configure IP.Nexus for your members by navigating within the AdminCP to System Settings ->Nexus and working through the various settings sub-sections depending upon your requirements for IP.Nexus
