New apps

First, let's practice creating a new app from a Qbix template. Copy an app template somewhere, and configure it with your app's name:

cp -r Q/MyApp First
php First/scripts/Q/configure.php First

This replaces all instances of MyApp with First, and copies First/local.sample to First/local.

Installing apps

Now, create a new database in MySQL and grant permissions to all tables like so:

GRANT ALL ON First.* TO 'first'@'localhost'
IDENTIFIED BY 'somepassword';

Install the app with the command:

php First/scripts/Q/install.php --all

This creates the database tables for the app and all its plugins, makes some directories writable, and adds some symbolic links in First/web/Q/plugins.

Setting up your webserver

Since Qbix apps are written in PHP on the server side, you will need a php-enabled webserver to host them to the web. If you have Apache, set up a virtual host something like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName first.com
    DocumentRoot /projects/First/web
    <Directory /projects/First/web>
        Options FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
    ErrorLog logs/first-error-log
    CustomLog logs/first-access-log common 

The .htaccess file in the web folder should take care of the rest.

If you have NGiNX, things are more complicated. We will assume you already integrated PHP in a configuration file called php.inc, and the basic server code in listen.inc . Then the virtual host directive will look something like this:

server {

include listen.inc;

server_name first.com;
access_log  /var/log/nginx/first.access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/first.error.log;

root   /projects/First/web;
include php.inc;

location /blog {
    index index.html index.php;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /blog/index.php?q=$uri;
location / {
    index index.html index.php;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;
