I am trying out Pimcore for the DAM module for my company. I have +30 years in software development, so I know some stuff.
I want to install Pimcore on my shared hosted server. I have no shell access. Standard setup is Apache, cpanel, php, mysql, composer, etc. A lot of other software installed too like SuiteCRM, Matomo, etc. They all use Composer.
I want to install the latest version of Pimcore that supports php 7.2). All my system reqs are fine.
Where do I get the latest package in the first place? Github is such a mess. Installation instructions are also everything except clear. I downloaded the pimcore-data package of 9 Jan 2019 (don’t ask me how I found this package). What’s next to do ?
To resume my questions:
- what’s with this virtual host for Apache? I want to run pimcore in a subdomain.
- do I need shell access to install Pimcore?
- is there no simple php install/update script to run?
- where are the official download packages ? I cannot find the official repository on the web or github.
Thanks for any help. This piece of software seems nice, but the entry step for beginners is not good guys!
