Appointo

Booking Management System (Laravel - 5.6)


Thank you for purchasing my script. If you have any questions that are beyond the scope of this help file, please feel free to email. Thanks so much!

Appointo is a booking management system which helps business to keep the track of the booking or appointments made by customers. It allows customers to book the appointments from the front end and also track the past bookings in dashboard.
The Server needs to meet the following requirement to the application.
 
  1. PHP >= 7.1.3
  2. OpenSSL PHP Extension
  3. PDO PHP Extension
  4. Mbstring PHP Extension
  5. Tokenizer PHP Extension
  6. XML PHP Extension
  7. GD PHP Extension
  8. Fileinfo PHP Extension
Pre-installation Requirements:
 
File System Permissions
 
To be able to start the installation at all, you must set appropriate permissions for storage folder and it's subfolders. So, the very first thing to do is to set permissions to 777 for storage folder, all its subfolders.
 
After setting the permissions you are ready to proceed to the installation.
 
After downloading the ZIP archive, and upload it to your server.

Step 1 - Welcome Screen

After creating the database next step is accessing the application URL from a browser. One thing you need to know is that Laravel is designed to allow HTTP access to the application from your public folder only. This means that this application will be available at yourdomain.com/public. It is good enough for installation and development purposes, however, for production, you will probably want to have your application available at yourdomain.com. In next section, I will show you how you can accomplish that.

Note: If you see any error check that you should have .env file at your root location.

To open the installer. Visit 

yourdomain.com/public/install
 
Now the installer will show up.The First screen will be Welcome Screen
 
Note: If you are not able to access the website by accessing yourdomain.com/public/install, but you are able to access it via yourdomain.com/public/index.php/install, this means that you probably don't have Apache mod_rewrite installed and enabled.

 

Step 2 - Database/Environment Setting

On step 2 you have to fill in your database credentials 

Step 3: System Requirements

After clicking on "Next" button, you will be redirected to System  Requirements step during the installation wizard, System Requirements.

Step 4 - Directory Permissions

After successfully enabling and installing all required PHP extensions, next step is to set the appropriate permissions for some system folders. All directories listed on step 4 has to be writable by the application, as it is displayed on the following picture.
 
 

Step 5: Exit

The last step is exit step.
