Installation steps for SonicFunnels:
- Create database
- Create database user
- Add user to database
- Upload install package
- Run web-based installer
In this example we are installing SonicFunnels on a shared hosting account with cPanel. To create a database, go to the “Database” section in cPanel and select “MySQL Databases”.
At the “Create New Database” section, create a new database. You can name it anything you want.
Once you created the database, on the same page scroll down and look for the “Add New User” section. Create a new user and set a password for this user. Make sure to avoid using hash, pound, apostrophe, quotation or equal symbols. These may cause issues during the installation.
Once you created the user, you need to add this user to the previously created database. Scroll down and find the “Add User To Database” section. Select the user and select the database and click “Add”. After this make sure to assign all privileges to this user.
After you purchased SonicFunnels, you will have access to the SonicFunnels install package. Log in to our website, go to “Downloads” and download the install package. You will receive a zipped file.
You will need to upload this install package to your server. There are many ways to do that. You can use an FTP client like FileZilla or you can use the “File Manager” in cPanel. This is what we use tin this example.
In cPanel, go to “File Manager” and go into the folder where you want to install SonicFunnels. Upload the install package, then extract it. The main files and folders are in the “upload” folder of the install package so you will need to move the files and folders to your root directory.
After the files and folders are at the right place, locate a file called “.env.example” and rename it to “.env”.
To install SonicFunnels, you need to call the installer in your browser. Just type https://yoursite.com/install and follow the instructions. Provide your database details, then create an administrative user. After the installation, you will be able to log into your admin panel.
