Installing LOVD

Install process

To install LOVD on a remote webserver, upload the LOVD directory with all the files to the webserver by, for instance, FTP. If you install LOVD on your own computer, you do not need to follow this step.

Next, point your web browser to the directory where you've uploaded the LOVD files. LOVD will tell you it's not installed yet, and include a link to the install directory.
LOVD will first check a few requirements. Both the PHP and MySQL versions will be checked, to make sure your LOVD will function properly on your webserver environment. Also, LOVD will check if your config.ini file has been hidden.

Installing LOVD consists of only 5 simple steps and will take only a couple of minutes, or less.
