The installation of FileGator is very simple. Copy all files to server, login as admin and add one or more users and you are ready to go. Note that web server must have read/write permissions to config/ and repository/ folders.

If you want to use mysql database to store your users then update configuration.php file and create table with database.sql script.

Before you post any question please read this extensive FAQ as you may find your answer there.

Please DO NOT post customization questions since you will probably get a generic response. Support doesn’t mean customization and I am not available for freelance.

Limited support is ONLY available on fresh installations, with a default configuration options and if all system requirements are met. Support and help is NOT available if you want to use repository folders outside default installation folder or if you changed or customized any original filegator file.
