How to Install BigTree in cPanel/WHM Server?

The BigTree is an open source Content Management System built in PHP and it uses MySQL for the database. BigTree is a lightweight core capable of multiple sites and it provides a friendly web interface. In this tutorial, I will show how to install BigTree CMS manually on the cPanel server.

System requirements are:

PHP 5.3 or high

gd extension

mysql or mysqli extension

MySQL 5 or MariaDB

Recommended Web server is Apache with mod_rewrite.

If you would like to install this to your main domain, you can install this to the public_html directory which is document root of the main domain. If you install this to a new domain, first you need to create a new addon domain in cPanel. Please follow the below-given steps.

1) Login to cPanel>> Domains>> Addon Domains.

Then you need to connect to the server via SSH.

Go to your document root of the domain. In my case document root is /home/user/public_html/bigtree

cd /home/user/public_html/bigtree

Download latest BigTree core files from https://www.bigtreecms.org/download/core/

wget https://www.bigtreecms.org/files/installers/bigtree-4.1.18.zip

Extract downloaded file

unzip bigtree-4.1.18.zip

Move all core files to document root.

mv BigTree-CMS/* .

Change ownership to your user of the cPanel account. In my case my cPanel username is user

chown -R user:user *

Then call your domain name in the web browser and you will get installation page. From there you can configure database details and site administrator.

Enter your database details which you have previously created.
