CLASSIFIO is a professional Drupal responsive theme for classified ads, fully manageable and complete responsive for ads objects, categories, shops, and more.
Setup and implementation
CLASSIFIO is created over an installation profile, so you don't need to do much to get it working. Following steps will guide you through the installation process.
1. Extract the zip file on your web server. It includes all you need to get it working, so don't worry about any other files handle. The location of your installation depends on the kind of server you're using. I mention some examples here you may be:
- In case you're using a local XAMP on Windows, the server root folder is C:\xampp\htdocs\
- In case you're using a local AppServ on Windows, the server root folder is C:\Appserv\www\
- In case you're using a local MAMP on OSX, the server root folder is Aplications/MAMP/htdocs/
- In case you're using a remote/local WebServer on Linux, the server root folder usually is /home/user/public_html/
Once you extract it, you can change the name of the folder.
2. Using a web browser, browse to your folder / domain / subdomain where the extracted classifio's folder was created. I'll use as example the name http://example.com
3. Select CLASSIFIO as your installation profile on the "Select an installation profile" page and then click "Save and Continue".
4. Select your language on the "Choose language" page and then click "Save and Continue" by default, the theme is English based.
5. Setup your database info on the "Database configuration" page and then click "Save and Continue". If you haven't created it yet, do it via phpMyAdmin or any other MySQL configuration app. Once you continue, the installation process will begin.
Please, be a little bit patient.
Errors on database installation
Should any errors occur during the database installation you need to refresh your site at http://example.com/install.php?profile=classifio&locale=en
If your installation failed this is most likely due to your server resources being limited by its configuration - most commonly these are: max_execution_time and memory_limit . If working on a localhost increasing those limits is easy - simply head over to your PHP.ini configuration file, find where those directives are located and increase them to for instance:
max_execution_time = 3600
memory_limit = 1024M
If none of those work and you are using a hosting somewhere you can always ask them for a quick assistance with this via their Live Chat or Support Phone.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. form at http://bahnalthemes.com/portal/#block-formblock-contact-site
6. Configure your site basic info on the "Configure Site" page and then click "Save and Continue". Wait a little bit, until all CLASSIFIO's features are configured.
