Installing from repository

During installation process you will need:

  1. Download and unpack the latest version of Aurora Files into your installation root directory

  2. Download composer.phar from

  3. Run composer installation process by running the following from command line:

    php composer.phar install

    NB: It is strongly advised to run composer as non-root user. Otherwise, third-party scripts will be run with root permissions and composer issues a warning that it's not safe. We recommend running the script as the same user web server runs under.

  4. Next, you need to build static files for current module set.

    First of all, install all npm modules via

    npm install ./modules/CoreWebclient

    and install gulp-cli module globaly

    npm install --global gulp-cli
  5. Now you can build static files

    gulp styles --themes Default,Funny,DeepForest
    gulp js:min
  6. Now you are ready to open a URL pointing to the installation directory in your favorite web browser.

  7. Upon installing the product, you'll need to configure your installation.


  1. Make sure data directory is writable by web server. For example:

    chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/aurora/data
  2. It is strongly recommended to runs the product under https. If you run it under http, the majority of features will still be available, but some functionality aspects, such as authentication with Google account, won't work.

To enable automatic redirect from http to https, set RedirectToHttps to On in data/settings/config.json file.

Protecting data directory

All configuration files of the application and user data are stored in data directory, so it's important to protect data directory to make sure that users cannot access that directory over the Internet directly.
