Before beginning with installation make sure that your computer meet these requirements:

Apache server, Mysql, PHP 7+

First we create a new database in mysql and a user with full priveleges

We unzip gila and we access with with the browser e.g http://localhost/gila

In the installation page we must fill all the fields

Hostname: the host name of the database

Database: name of the database for the website

DB Username, DB Password: the username and the password in order to connect to the mysql

Admin Username, Admin Email, Admin Password: a user will be created for the website as administrator with these data

Base Url: the web address of the website must finish with '/' e.g.


After filling the data and submit them, we wait a few seconds untill the installation is done.

When installation is finished we can enter on the admin panel using the admin email and password that we wrote before.

We enter in the administration dashboard.

From the administation menu we choose Administration->Settings in order to fill more information about the website
