Officially, there is no installation is required. Just unpack the ZIP archive, and you are ready to go. But if you still need a guide, here it is.

Download & Install

  1. Unpack the archive and rename the Scriptor-master folder as you like.
  2. Rename the file /data/settings/_custom.scriptor-config.php to custom.scriptor-config.php (remove _ prefix/underscore).
  3. Upload the contents of the folder to your server, or upload the folder if you want to run the application in a subfolder.

Note also that there is a .htaccess file in the root directory.

For some hosts, RewriteBase must be set. So, if you set up Scriptor in a subfolder, you may need to comment out this line for the RewriteBase in your .htaccess file:

 # RewriteBase /
