Quick Start

Last updated: July 18th, 2018


  • A web server with PHP support, for example:
  • PHP 7.x.x
  • PHP extensions are required:
    • php-mbstring
    • php-mcrypt
    • php-zip


We will give an example of installation on Apache server on Ubuntu operating system. The default document root for Apache is `/var/www/html` (Ubuntu 14.04 or later).

Unpack archive to any directory on your server:

unzip engine-fm.zip

Copy the contents to /var/www:

cp -a ./engine-fm/ ./html/ /var/www/

If you are copying to a location not owned by the current user then you should use `sudo`.

sudo cp -a ./engine-fm/ ./html/ /var/www/

Ultimately you will get the next structure of folders:



The main configuration file location is `%application-dir%/engine-fm/settings/public.php`
