YAWIK needs PHP >=7.2 for execution and the described extensions from the requirements.
For the installation via Composer (this is the easiest way at the moment) npm is needed. The Nodes Package Manager executes grunt tasks at the end of the installation which copy images, convert LESS to CSS and compress JS.
Apache or nginx can be used as webserver. For testing you can use the PHP buildin server.
And of course you need composer.
In the different Linux distributions there are dirverse differences. So you have to proceed differently until an installation via composer works.
Install mongo Database¶
YAWIK runs with mongo 2.4. So you can use the mongod version, which is shipped with your distribution. However, you should use a later version. Otherwise you have to enable the text search, which is disabled in 2.4 by default. In 2.6 and above the text search is enabled by default.
You can install e.g. mongo 3.2 by: (Our demo is running 2.6, development is done with 3.x)
We’ve installed mongo the following way:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv EA312927 echo "deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu xenial/mongodb-org/3.2 multiverse" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-3.2.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org
If your linux comes with systemd, you can start your mongod with
service mongo start. If you need an init script,
because your linux comes with sysv, you can fetch it from mongodb github repository
cd /etc/init.d/ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mongodb/mongo/master/debian/init.d > mongod chmod +x mongod update-rc.d mongod defaults
Start your mongod with
