Installing Eonza to your own hosting

To install Eonza you should have a website with FTP access and a MySQL database. You can install the system to any subfolder on your website. Create some folder and upload to it all files from the .zip you should preliminarily download. For example, you created a folder named eonza and uploaded all the files there. Set write permissions for this folder. This is required to allow the script to save its setting file there. When installation finishes, remove write permissions from this folder.
After you upload all files via FTP and created a MySQL database, open the [www.yoursite.com]/eonza/ page in your browser. You should see the installation form where you should specify MySQL authentication parameters and the password you will use to login to the system.

Host - By default, the database host is set to localhost, but you can specify any given database address - mysql1.mysite.com. You can also specify the port to connect to the database - mysql1.mysite.com:3306.
Database - Database name.
Username - Username to connect to the database.
Password - User password to connect to the database.
File storage folder - Specify a folder to store files, because files uploaded to your storage can be stored both in the database and on the disk. If you will select database storage for all tables, you won’t need this folder. Otherwise, don’t forget to set write permissions for this folder.
Password - This password will be used to login to Eonza. The login is automatically set to admin. Further, you can change the login and the password in your personal settings.

It may be that your hosting provider doesn’t allow creating MySQL tables from PHP scripts. In that case you will see an error message and will have to manually import the db.sql file specified in the message to the database using phpMyAdmin or any other suitable way.
