gpEasy installation is as easy as possible. There are no databases to create or configure and our install script will take care of all the configuration files that need to be created.


Installation Requirements

To install gpEasy on your own server, this is all you need:

  • PHP 5.3+
  • Modern web browser. Recent releases of FireFox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer all work.


Step by Step Instructions

  1. Downloaded the latest version of gpEasy and unzip the contents to your local computer.
  2. Upload all the the unzipped contents to a folder on your server. You may upload to your root folder, subfolder or subdirectory.
  3. Using your web browser, navigate to the folder you just uploaded the unzipped contents to.
  4. Your browser should now be displaying the gpEasy installation page. Look over this page and make sure all of the checks have passed.
    1. Typically, you'll need to change the permissions of the /data directory so that gpEasy can write to it. The installation page will indicate if this is necessary.
    2. After you make any adjustments to the server, reload the installation page in your browser.
  5. If all of the checks have passed, you'll be shown a form for your username, password, etc. Fill out all of the fields and click the "Install" button.

And you're done! If nothing out of the ordinary has occurred, gpEasy should now be installed. Take a look at the User Guide if you need ideas for what to do next.


Instructions Specific to Different Types of Servers




Page cannot be found

Page requests for gpEasy are handled one of two ways: Using PathInfo or URL Rewriting. The "Page cannot be found" message will be displayed by Apache if neither of these options are available. Unfortunately, if you don't have admin privileges on the server, neither of these options can be changed. Otherwise:

  • Enable PathInfo (
  • Enabling mod_rewrite is somewhat OS specific. A online search for "mod_rewrite Ubunut" or "mod_rewrite CentOS" will give OS specific instructions.
