Six basic steps, and you are running your very own PHP RT installation.


  1. Copy Tarball to your server, Un-archive

  3. Edit MySQL Schema – ROOT password:
    edit config/mysql.schema — make sure all table references match the above settings.

    Replace 5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99 with a md5(“your password”) or
    use this and change the password after you log in.

    5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99 = md5(“password”)

    (root / password — this is the default username and password)
  4. Create MySQL User, Table
    Create mysql USER, TABLE and setup permissions inside MySQL
  5. Import MySQL Data
