InfyChat

Local Setup

InfyChat comes with all possible customization options like Application Name etc, but if you want to make some modifications in the code then you need to set it up on your local machine, make changes, build it, test it and then push to the server.

When you are target to change a code we recommend using src.zip file, but when you are planning to just test it on your local without any code modification, then you can use dist.zip file.

Based on the file you are using, you can either follow the Technical Guide or Non-Technical Guide. But before that, you will need to complete the following steps.

1. Install WebServer

To run it on local, the very first thing that you need is a web server. You can install xamp/wamp or independently apache or nginx or your choice of the webserver which can run PHP Applications.

2. Server Requirements

Make sure, you meet all server requirements listed here.

3. Extract the Source code files

Create a folder in your local web server's root directory. E.g.

  • if you are using Wamp, then create InfyChat folder under pathtowamp/www/infychat/
  • if you are using Xamp, then create InfyChat folder under pathtoxamp/htdocs/infychat/

Then based on your choice, either extract src.zip or dist.zip to the newly created folder.

4. Final Steps

From here, you need to follow the steps from the Technical or Non-Technical Guide based on the file you are using.
