6. Fill the necessary field, under the Software Setup field:

  • Choose Installation URL: Choose the appropriate protocol/domain. Inside the "In Directory" field, should you want to install this in a directory, i.e., example.com/directory, enter the directory name. Otherwise, leave it blank to install in your main domain, i.e., example.com
  • Data Directory: Leave this as it is.

  • Site Name: Enter the name of your website, such as Xoops.
  • Site Description: Site Description.




8. Under the Admin Account field, enter the following information:

  • Admin Password: Use a strong password.
  • Real Name: Leave this as it is or use your full name.
  • Admin Email: Your e-mail address.


Note: Copy the admin username and password on a notepad because you will need these login details to access the admin area of your Xoops Website.


9. Advanced Options: Leave this as it is unless you want to change the database name or take an automated backup. Please note that taking frequent backups may take a lot of disk space.


Finally, scroll down to the end of the page and click on the Install button.
