Hello! We continue to explore the world of web development. Specifically, the additions we can make to a web server. This time, we’ll talk a little about Feng Office. This is a project and team management web application. It also allows you to edit, share, and publish documents, emails, and calendars. Similarly, it is aimed at improving the productivity of the group with web document management and CRM. It is based on PHP and MySQL. As you can see, it has very interesting features. So let’s see how to install Feng Office on a web server.
You can install these components independently, as I explain in each of the links. However, a faster and more comfortable option is through Xampp.
Downloading Feng Office Community Edition
This is open-source software. However, it offers a free version and two paid versions called Professional and Enterprise Edition. It is also possible to enjoy a free trial of the software. Nevertheless, today we will use the Community Version. Which is very complete and also free. You can download it from this link. Once you have downloaded the file, please unzip it and paste it into the httdocs folder.
Installing Feng Office.
Creating the database
With the Apache and MySQL servers up and running, it’s time to create the database for Feng Office. For this example, we will use the PhpMyAdmin tool included in Xampp. Also, you can assign any name you want to the database.

Once the database is created, please paste the following address into your web browser: http://localhost/fengoffice-18.104.22.168. This action will launch the application installer. On the welcome screen, please press Next to begin the installation.
Then, the wizard will check the requirements to continue the installation. In addition, it will mark possible errors in red. If everything is in order, please press Next to continue.
