As both Symfony and Marello use Composer to manage their dependencies, this is the recommended way to install Marello.
- Clone Marello application repository:
where x.y.z is the latest release tag or use the latest master:
- Install Composer globally following the official Composer installation documentation
- Make sure that you have NodeJS 6.x or above installed
- Install Marello dependencies with composer. If installation process seems too slow you can use –prefer-dist option. Go to marello-application folder and run composer installation:
- Create the database with the name specified on previous step (default name is “marello_application”).
- On some systems it might be necessary to temporarily increase memory_limit setting to 1 GB in php.ini configuration file for the duration of the installation process:
- Install application and admin user with Installation Wizard by opening install.php in the browser or from CLI:
- Enable WebSockets messaging
- Configure crontab or scheduled tasks execution to run the command below every minute:
- Launch the message queue processing:
Installed PHP Accelerators must be compatible with Symfony and Doctrine (support DOCBLOCKs)
Note that the port used in Websocket must be open in firewall for outgoing/incoming connections
Using MySQL 5.6 on HDD is potentially risky because of performance issues
