install Typo3

One simple way to install typo3, besides others:

  • open your terminal window
  • cd to your web directory (e.g. htdocs)
  • create a directory and cd into it:
    mkdir typo3
    cd typo3
  • use wget to fetch the typo3 package:
    wget get.typo3.org/8.7 -O typo3_src-8.7.x.tar.gz
  • use tar to unpack the package:
    tar xzf typo3_src-8.7.x.tar.gz
  • remove the installation file:
    rm typo3_src-8.7.x.tar.gz
  • create a ‚public‘ directory and cd into it:
    mkdir public
    cd public
  • create symlinks:
    ln -s ../typo3_src-8.7.15 typo3_src
    (make sure, that this symlink points to the right source folder in the parent directory: typo3_src-8.7.15 or typo3_src-8.7.13, depending on the typo3 version you have fetched)
    ln -s typo3_src/typo3 typo3
    ln -s typo3_src/index.php index.php
  •  copy the .htaccess:
    cp typo3_src/_.htaccess .htaccess
    (on an Apache web server)
  • create a FIRST_INSTALL file:
    touch FIRST_INSTALL

Now create a database and switch to your browser and open your typo3 website. Then just follow the install instructions.

One might run into several requirements issues which I will describe in another tutorial.
