LAMP server installation on Linux Debian

Before nuBuilder Forte installation 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, few links which can be helpful attached belowe:

(the best just apply recommended settings during installation process)

Creation of database.

Database for nuBuilder Forte can be created from the command line - or with phpMyAdmin which will allow in a more user friendly way to perform that process. (installation of phpMyAdmin is included in the last link).


Example (name of database: TestDB)

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

First from system terminal open mysql command line with:

>>> mysql -u root -pYourRootPsw

Next DB and user can be created as following:

>>> create database TestDB;

>>> grant all privileges on TestDB.* to 'globeadmin'@'%' identified by 'nuBpsw';


Downloading nuBuilder Forte

Download the nuBuilder Forte zipped files from SourceForge

>>>> wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/nubuilder/files/latest/download

Unpack downloaded file

>>> unzip download

Rename to desired name (it can have the name of DB or any other name):

>>> mv nubuilder4-master TestDB

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

/var/www/html/TestDB


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 can be used as well.

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

$nuConfigDBName = "TestDB";

$nuConfigDBUser = "globeadmin";

$nuConfigDBPassword = "nuBpsw";

$nuConfigDBGlobeadminUsername = "globeadmin";

$nuConfigDBGlobeadminPassword = "nuBpsw";

$nuConfigTitle = "TestDB - nuBuilder";


Launch of nuBuilder

After 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)

http://192.168.1.10/TestDB/index.php

when the login window appears enter user and password:

user: globeadmin

password: nuBpsw

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).
