LAMP server installation on Linux Debian

Before installing nuBuilder Forte on your server you need to make sure that Apache2, MariaDB and PHP are properly installed, configured and fully operational.

To do this, you can follow any Linux/Debian installation guide. A few links which can be helpful are listed below:

It is best to just apply the recommended settings during the installation process.





Recommended PHP modules to install (adjust acc. to your version):

php7.4-cli php7.4-fpm php7.4-pdo php7.4-mysql php7.4-zip php7.4-gd  php7.4-mbstring php7.4-curl php7.4-xml
php7.4-bcmath php7.4-json php7.4-common php7.4-intl php7.4-bz2 php7.4-soap php7.4-mysql php7.4-readline
php7.4-opcache php7.4-mbstring php7.4-gd php7.4-curl php7.4-pspell php7.4-zip php7.4-xmlrpc php7.4-tidy php7.4-sqlite3
php7.4-imap php7.4-cli php7.4-fpm php7.4-cgi php7.4-cgi-dbgsym libapache2-mod-php7.4

Creation of database.

The database for nuBuilder Forte can be created from the command line or with phpMyAdmin if installed together with LAMP server.

Please note that phpMyAdmin is included in the nuBuilder package and will be available from it after full installation and commissioning of nuBuilder.

Example (Name of database: TestDB)

In case of mysql command line the database can be created as following:

First, open the mysql command line from the system terminal with:

mysql -u root -pYourRootPsw

Next, the DB and user can be created as follows:

create database TestDB;
create user 'globeadmin'@'%' identified by 'nuB4psw';
grant all privileges on TestDB.* to 'globeadmin'@'%';

Downloading nuBuilder Forte

Download the nuBuilder Forte zipped files from SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/nubuilder/

wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/nubuilder/files/latest/download -O nubuilder.zip

Unpack the downloaded file

unzip nubuilder.zip -d TestDB

The folder TestDB must be placed in the Apache2 folder to be accessible externally. Typically it will be:


nuBuilder configuration

Edit nuconfig.php (nano editor can be used or any other)

nano /var/www/html/TestDB/nuconfig.php

For simplicity the same name and password both for DB and nuBuilder accounts were used here - but different ones can be used as well.

There are more settings possibilities in nuconfig.php but for the beginning the following ones are sufficient to set-up:

$nuConfigDBName                     = "TestDB";
$nuConfigDBUser                     = "globeadmin";
$nuConfigDBPassword                 = "nuB4psw";
$nuConfigDBGlobeadminUsername       = "globeadmin";
$nuConfigDBGlobeadminPassword       = "nuB4psw";
$nuConfigTitle                      = "TestDB - nuBuilder";

Launch of nuBuilder

After the configuration you can login to nuBuilder with link to the folder on your http server.

But of course you need to use your own server address.

when the login window appears enter the nuBuilder user and password:

User: globeadmin
Password: nuB4psw

All the required tables will be created automatically. So no need to import manually the initial nubuilder4.sql to MariaDB - (anyway manual import is as well allowed).

Additional system settings

Allow nuBuilder and phpMyadmin to access their temp folders.

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/TestDB
cd /var/www/html/TestDB
chmod 400 nuconfig.php
