This tutorial will explain how to install it on CentOS 7.

Installer le serveur Web Apache

Tout d'abord, sur votre CentOS 7 server install Apache, by executing the following command:

# yum install httpd

Une fois l’installation terminée, start Apache and enable it to run at boot time:

# systemctl démarrer httpd
# systemctl enable httpd

Installer PHP

Being that TaskBoard is written in PHP, we must install it. Since it requires PHP5+, we will install PHP7 by using the Webtatic repository.

Première, install the EPEL repository, which is required by Webtatic:

# yum install epel-libération

Mise à jour :

# yum update

Maintenant, it is possible to install the Webtatic repository by executing the following commands:

# rpm - Uvh https://mirror.webtatic.com/yum/el7/webtatic-release.rpm
# yum update

Once the repository is ready, et yum can use it, installer PHP 7.1 and the extensions required by TaskBoard:

# yum install php71w php71w-gd php71w-json php71-readline php71w-cli php71w-sqlite3

Install SQLite

TaskBoard uses SQLite as a database, which means that we can use it without having to install MySQL or other “big” databases.

SQLite can be installed with the following yum commande :

# yum install sqlite

Install TaskBoard

TaskBoard installation is really very easy, as anticipated by the lengthy features list presented in the introduction. En fait, it just requires that you download and extract the TaskBoard archive. Go to the Apache web root directory:

# CD/var/www

Ici, download the archive:

# wget https://github.com/kiswa/TaskBoard/archive/master.zip

Unzip it:

# décompresser master.zip

unzip will extract the archive to a directory named TaskBoard-master. Rename it (optional) :

# mv TaskBoard-master taskboard

Through Composer, install the required dependencies:

./taskboard/build/composer.phar install

Prochaine, changer le taskboard owner to the apache utilisateur :

# chown -R apache:apache /var/www/taskboard

Create a Virtual Host

Create a new Virtual Host file for TaskBoard:

# $EDITOR /etc/httpd/conf.d/board.example.com.conf

Dans ce fichier, collez le contenu suivant :

<VirtualHost *: 80>
    ServerAdmin [email protected]
    DocumentRoot "/var/www/taskboard"
    ServerName board.example.com
    ServerAlias www.board.example.com
    <Directory "/var/www/taskboard">
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
    ErrorLog "/var/log/httpd/board.example.com-error_log"
    CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/board.example.com-access_log" combined

Redémarrez Apache :

# httpd restart systemctl

Finishing Installation

The last step is to finish installation through a web browser. Allez à l’adresse http://board.example.com.

Log in using admin as both username and password. Une fois que vous êtes connecté, change the administrator password by going in the Paramètres page.
