  • Go to file config/database.php and change these values in mysql section

    .
    .
    .
    'charset'   => 'utf8',
    'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci',
    'strict'    => false,
    'engine'    => 'InnoDB ROW_FORMAT=DYNAMIC',
    .
    .
    .

Install

  1. If installing Eventmie Pro on an existing Laravel application and you already have Auth system then skip this step

    if installing Eventmie Pro on Fresh Laravel application then run

    For Laravel 5.5 to 5.8

    php artisan make:auth
    
    php artisan migrate

    For Laravel 6.x

    composer require laravel/ui --dev
    
    php artisan ui vue --auth
    
    npm install && npm run dev

  2. Unzip the eventmie-pro.zip file, copy the eventmie-pro folder and place it in your Laravel application root directory.

    {warning} The folder name must be eventmie-pro in your Laravel website directory.

  3. Open your Laravel application composer.json file and paste the below code in the end (right before last curly } bracket)

    "repositories": [{
        "type": "path",
        "url": "eventmie-pro/"
    }]

    (once you complete, the composer.json file will look something like this)

    {
        .
        .
        .
        .
        .

Web Installer


Eventmie Web Installer


Eventmie Pro v1.1.1 introduced a new web-installer, which installs Eventmie Pro directly on the web-server in few clicks.

{warning} Recommended way to install Eventmie Pro is from the above manual method. Developers must go with the manual method. First, install it locally then deploy it to a live server. Web Installer method is only for non-developers who want to install Eventmie Pro directly on web-server/hosting/CPANEL.

To start with Eventmie Pro web-installer. After purchase & downloading Eventmie Pro, on extracting eventmie-pro.zip, you'll get two folders-

  1. eventmie-pro - This is eventmie-pro PACKAGE for installation via the above manual method (command line)
  2. eventmie-pro-web installer - This is eventmie-pro WEB-INSTALLER, to install Eventmie-pro via the web interface.

{info} Web-installer installs everything including - Laravel Framework + Eventmie Pro package + Database + all other composer dependencies. So if you're not a developer, you can use web-installer to install Eventmie Pro easily in few clicks.

Follow these simple steps for getting started with web-installer.

  1. Copy all the folders & files from eventmie-pro-web installer and paste them inside the website directory. e.g public_html

  2. Open the .env file at public_html/.env and enter the database credentials. It's important to enter database credentials manually before proceeding to web-installer.

        .
        .
        .
    
        DB_DATABASE=<database-name>
        DB_USERNAME=<database-user-username>
        DB_PASSWORD=<database-user-password>
    
        .
        .
        .
  3. Then visit the website URL, and it'll first ask for License code. Enter it and click Proceed.

  4. After successful license verification, it'll redirect to the Eventmie Pro web-installer steps form.

  5. In the steps form, everything is self-explanatory.

    • Step-1: Check server requirements. It'll auto check the webserver requirements, and will point out if some PHP extension is missing. If in case some extensions missing, you simply contact your web server/hosting provider, and they'll install those missing extensions, after that, return to the installer and try again.

    • Step-2: Check Folder Permissions. If you see some red cross. Change two folder permissions storage & bootstrap. (you'll see more info about this on the installer page.)

    • Step-3: Enter Website Name, URL & Database Credentials.
