We recommend to install Typo3 automatically from our control panel. Follow the guide here.
This guide details how to proceed to install Typo3 CMS on your web hosting account. Be aware that you can also install Typo3 via Softaculous, which you have access to on your web hosting account.
When you ordered you received an email with information about the web hosting account you created with us. In the window below we have specified relevant information for the web hosting service we use in this example, as well as other relevant information:
Step 1 - Download Typo3:
Go to Typo3's website at https://typo3.org/ and download the latest version of Typo3. You will be able to choose between different file formats when you download. Choose the one you prefer. If you do not have any specific preferences, you should choose .zip since this will usually offer less challenges.
Step 2 - Unpack the archive:
The file you downloaded is an archive that contains all of Typo3. Unpack this locally on the computer you are using.
Step 3 - Create database:
To use Typo3 you must have a database. Follow the guide Create MySQL database in cPanel to create the database with associated database user. During the creation we specify "typo3" as database name and "user" as database user in this guide. That gives database names and database usernames like it's given in the top of this guide (all database names and database usernames will get the web hosting account's username as prefix).
Step 4 - Upload Typo3 on the web hosting account:
Typo3 can be uploaded in several ways. This guide details the simplest method - via FTP. If you are unsure about how to set up an FTP client, you should click on our guide for this in the guide section on our websites.
In our example we will install Typo3 on the address http://dittdomene.net/. When you log in via FTP you must go to the folder public_html. Files that are put in the folder public_html will be accessible on the address http://dittdomene.net/. If you cannot find the folder public_html you have most likely specified in your FTP client that it should start in that folder.
Upload all files for the Typo3 installation from your locak computer to the web hosting account. Be aware that this might take some time, since there are many files to upload.
Step 5 - Create file:
Create an empty file with the name FIRST_INSTALL in the same folder where the Typo3 installation was uploaded (/public_html).
Step 6 - Browser installation:
Go to the address http://dittdomene.net/ in your browser. You will automatically see the first page of the installation.
System environment check
When all mistakes are corrected, Typo3 will show without error messages. Click on the button "System looks good. Continue!" to move on with the installation.
Create user and import basis data
The installation process is now completed. Click on the button "Open the backend" to go to the log in window for administrator to start using your new Typo3 installation.
We have now been through how to install Typo3 on your web hosting account. You can now see your website on the URL you installed it on, and administer is via the administrator page. In our example the URL is like the two in the window below:
