Installation - Local Host
Follow the below steps carefully to install the QwikTest script in the localhost. Your computer must have PHP 7.4, MySQL 5.7.24 or higher, and Apache.
- 1.Configure environment
- 2.Create a database
- 3.Upload script downloaded from CodeCanyon to the XAMPP root folder.
See the below video for the installation process.
Instead of XAMPP, you can use WAMP, Laragon, Laravel Sail, or any other LAMP stack. The script just works. All you need to have is PHP >= 7.4.10 and MySQL >= 5.7.24 installed and configured properly. In this example, we are using XAMPP.
Now open the XAMPP Control Panel and then Start Apache and MySQL.
Open phpMyAdmin and create a new database.
Now copy the script upload_this.zip file downloaded from CodeCanyon into the server root folder.
Extract the upload_this.zip file in the same folder.
QwikTest CAN only be installed on your main domain or subdomain. For example, http://localhost or yourdomain.dev. It CANNOT be installed in the subdirectory path of your domain, for example, yourdomain.dev/my-app or localhost/my-app.
Installer Start Screen
We suggest using Form Wizard Setup for editing environment settings. If you are using Classic Text Editor for editing Environment Settings, please make sure you click on the Save .env button after editing the .env file and before proceeding to the further installation.
Finally, when you are on the installation success screen, don't close the browser window directly. Instead, you must hit the Click here to exit the button to complete the installation.
If the installation fails due to server issues, fix them and:
- 1.Delete all the tables in the existing database or make a new database.
- 2.Delete the storage/installed file of the app in the sever
- 3.Replace the .env file on the server with the .env file from the downloaded script.
- 4.Finally, start the installation again by visiting yourdomain.com/install.
If you want to configure a virtual host instead of localhost in the URL, you can create a virtual host in the Apache virtual hosts configuration file.
C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conffile and paste the below configuration into it.
If your installation is in a different path, change DocumentRoot according to your application path.
You should set the document root to the app's /public directory, not the root directory. If you set it to the root directory, it won't work.
Now you need to update your Windows hosts file. Open
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hostsfile and add the following line to it.
Now, restart the Apache from the XAMPP control panel.
If you configure the virtual host after installation, manually edit the .env file in the application root folder and replace the APP_URL property with the new host.
Please raise a ticket on our support portal if you have any issues with the installation within the QwikTest application.
We cannot provide fixes that are related to your web hosting or server environment. Therefore, if your hosting or server environment is different than what is listed in the above section, you’ll need to determine if it will work before purchasing. Server setup and configuration are not in our scope of support.
