NexoPOS is a PHP software, which means you'll need to install it on a compatible server. We already know that NexoPOS was compatible with XAMPP, MAMP, Wampserver and any other server that offers PHP 5.3+ and PHP 7.0+ and MySQL.
Here is a tutorial about how to install XAMPP.
You can also install NexoPOS on your remote server. All you'll have to do is to upload all content within NexoPOS compressed file, using a FTP client.
Uncompress the zip file somewhere on your computer. You'll then see such organisation.
Open "Install" folder, you'll see another zip file "NexoPOS.zip". Keep this file in mind.
Once you got XAMPP installed, all you'll have to do is to uncompress NexoPOS.zip files within XAMPP "htdocs" folder. make sure to uncompress NexoPOS within a folder, like "tendoo" for example.
For Wamp and MAMP, please report to thoses tutorials and guides.
Here is generally how the files will look like :
Open "Install" folder you'll
All you'll have to do, is to access NexoPOS from your browser, after having launched the virtual server (XAMPP, MAMP, WAMP...). You won't need to do that if NexoPOS is installed on a remote server.
When NexoPOS is installed within "htdocs" folder for XAMPP, and within "nexopos" subfolder for example. To access NexoPOS, you'll have to use this URL :
1. Select Language
Since NexoPOS is a Tendoo CMS module, you'll need to install Tendoo CMS first (NexoPOS will be installed at the same time).
In that page, you'll have to select language. Tendoo CMS is translated in French and English. More languages are coming.
Select a language and click on the "Select your Language" button. When you're done click on "Define Database configuration".
2. Database configuration
This is the place where you define Database details. If you're working locally, you can create database from phpMyAdmin, if you're on remote server, connect to your cpnale first then access phpMyAdmin.
Generally, working on local server, you can use default user to access database. So the use is generally "root" and the password is empty (except if you want to secure the database connexion and change database user credentials).
Enter each details in the corresponding field, db user name in replacement of "root", db user password on "User Password" field, db name in "Database Name" field, and database prefix in replacement of "tendoo_".
If you're on remote server, please refer to information given by your hosting provider.
When you're done click on the "Save Settings" button.
3. Site Settings
Tendoo CMS is now installed (NexoPOS by the same way). Now you'll have to define your site details. The site name (which can be your shop name), the master user credentials. And also from this page you can change language.
This step is very straightforward. When you're done, click on the continue to dashboard button. You'll be invited to login using the master user credentials.
When you're connected, if you see an invitation to add dummy content, then you've successfully installed NexoPOS.
It's not time to to setup NexoPOS.
