Installing an App from our Library
This article will explain how to install script using the App Library installer.

As an example this will demonstrate how to install Wordpress. However the same steps apply for other scripts included in the App Library.

1) Login to The App Library installer as described on the following page http://www.daily.co.uk/support?id=1037

2) Select the package you wish to install (in this case Wordpress) and click on Install.

You can also perform a search for a script by it's name in the search box on the top right of the page.

3) On the software setup page there will be some different options to configure:

Choose Protocol If you have an SSL certificate installed on your hosting space and are wanting data passed through your website to be encrypted select https:// If you do not have an SSL certificate select http://

Selecting http://www or https://www will display your domain with the www in the address bar (for example www.daily-example.co.uk)

Choose Domain The domain used is automatically detected so does not need to be selected.

In Directory The directory you want to install the script to. For example if you are wanting to have a separate folder or site for your blog insert blog into the text box. Your script will then be visible at www.daily-example.co.uk/blog.

If you want the script installed in the root directory of your hosting space so that it loads when you visit you domain (i.e. you want Wordpress to load when you visit www.daily-example.co.uk) then remove any text from this field.

Database Name The Database is created automatically using the naming conventions that the Daily hosting platform uses so anything in this field will be ignored

Table PrefixThe table prefix for database tables. The can normally be left as it's default setting.

Admin Username The username for the administrative user. By default this is set to admin for most CMS scripts. We strongly recommend changing this for security purposes. As most administrative usernames are admin any script or bot which tries to hack logins will attempt to gain access to the admin user.

Admin Password Replace the default pass with a secure password.

Admin Email The email address for the administrative account for the script you are installing. This is where confirmation emails, login details
and password reminders will be sent to. By default this is set to admin@YourDomainName. However if you do not have this email address set up then use a different email address which you have access to.

The other options are specific to the script you are installing.

4) Once done click on install. The page will refresh and you will see a progress bar displaying how much of the installation is complete.

5) When the installation is complete the page will display some links, one for your website installation and the other for the login page to your script (if relevant).
