WEGO CMS - Content Management System and internet shop - more than a CMS

System installation

The procedure below assumes that all registration formalities have been completed and you can download the system. WEGO CMS is available as a .tar.gz (formerly .tgz) archive or an MS Windows installer file.

Method 1: Using .tgz archive via SSH

  1. Download the .tar.gz file.
  2. Upload it to the destination Web server using SCP, and then from within SSH use the following command to extract files to the directory indicated as DocumentRoot (in iCenter: public_html):
    $ tar -xzf file_name.tar.gz

Method 2: Using .tgz archive via FTP

  1. Download the .tar.gz file.
  2. Extract files from the archive using a current version of any decompression software.
  3. Copy the content of the directory to an FTP account (remember about the .htaccess file) to the directory indicated as DocumentRoot (in iCenter: public_html).
  4. In the case of MS Windows systems grant a permission to write to appropriate directories and files using the FTP client (FTP server support required).

Method 3: Using MS Windows installer

Use a graphical Win32 application with a built-in FTP client (MS Windows operating system or Wine with the msvcp60.dll library required). A convenient wizard will help you install WEGO on a local or remote machine (with an FTP server).

  1. Download the .exe file and save it to your disk.
  2. Run the program.
  3. Accept the terms of the license agreement.
  4. In the case of an FTP installation enter your account parameters: server address, login and password.
  5. Select the installation directory (in iCenter: public_html).
  6. Start copying files.

Basic configuration

After copying the CMS onto the server perform configuration steps using a dedicated php script.

  1. In your browser enter the correct website address, which will be redirected to: /preconfig/
  2. Enter your superadministrator login and password.
  3. Configure your e-mail account (SMTP) by providing server, login and password information.
  4. Configure MySQL database, providing the following information: host, database name, login and password. Select if you want to load an SQL template to the specified database.
  5. Click Configure.
Now the system is ready to be used. The first step you can take is log in to the panel and enter required local settings (currency, languages etc.). Should any problems occur, troubleshoot them using FAQ.
