The automated installer makes Installation very easy. The installer is available for Mac, Windows and Linux (32 or 64 bit). The installer will setup your computer with all the necessary software and configuration to run PHP Point Of Sale on your computer/network.


Installation/Upgrade Instructions

When upgrading always make sure you do a backup

  1. Double click the installer and if promoted enter your computer username and password. Follow the prompts for each step through the installer. if you are doing an upgrade you simply need to make sure that the correct path to php pos is chosen. If you used the defaults you won't need to change anything.

If you are using linux you will need to do the following via terminal;

sudo chmod 755
sudo ./

Replace with the file you downloaded
