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

Install Apache Web Server

首先, 对你的 CentOS 7 server install Apache, by executing the following command:

# 百胜餐饮集团安装 httpd

一旦安装完成, start Apache and enable it to run at boot time:

# 立即启动 httpd
# 立即启用 httpd

安装 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.

第一次, install the EPEL repository, which is required by Webtatic:

# 百胜餐饮集团安装座谈释放

更新:

# 百胜餐饮集团更新

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

# rpm -Uvh https://mirror.webtatic.com/yum/el7/webtatic-release.rpm
# 百胜餐饮集团更新

Once the repository is ready, 和 yum can use it, install 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 命令:

# yum install sqlite

Install TaskBoard

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

# cd /var/www

这里, download the archive:

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

Unzip it:

# 解压 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

下一个, 更改 taskboard owner to the apache user:

# 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

此文件中, 粘贴以下内容:

<虚拟主机 *: 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
    </目录>
    ErrorLog "/var/log/httpd/board.example.com-error_log"
    CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/board.example.com-access_log" combined
</虚拟主机>

重新启动 Apache:

# 立即重新启动 httpd

Finishing Installation

The last step is to finish installation through a web browser. 转到的 URL http://board.example.com.

Log in using 管理员 as both username and password. 一旦您登录, change the administrator password by going in the 设置 页面.
