Mautic Community Forums

Please help:(

Hi there! I’m a newbie to all of this and I probably have a lot of idiotic questions, is that ok? I’m not a developer of any kind but I think this software is awesome and I really want to make it work. So, I unzipped the file and what do I do now? Also, what kind of an account should I create in Cpanel in order to install cron jobs? I don’t even know what a cron job is. What is the easiest way to do is? Do I need a LAMP server, whatever that is?

Thank you!!

I suggest you to try the hosted version. I have many Mautic running, and I’m not a developer, but I couldn’t have done it without my company’s developers.

Hi!

You can create cronjobs through cPanel. I did a quick Google search and found this:
http://support.hostgator.com/articles/cpanel/how-do-i-create-and-delete-a-cron-job

I think that might be a bit outdated but the basic steps are the same. After you’ve uploaded the zip to your website and unzipped (or unzipped and then moved to your server). You can then navigate to that location in your web browser:
http://www.yoursite.com/YOURMAUTICLOCATION

Then you can simply follow the steps to install.

Oh, and P.S. If you have cPanel on a web hosting provider than you have a LAMP stack (more than likely) already and you’re good to go.

Hope this helps!
