Server Requirements

These are the system requirements in order to use Mobulatr. If you are unsure whether your server meets these requirements, contact your hosting company.

 

– PHP 5.x (prior to 5.5)

 

– MySQL database

 

– mod_rewrite must be enabled

 

– Linux hosting preferred
 

Installation

 

Installation is really easy. All you need to do is upload application to your FTP and launch install.php in your browser.

 

Step 1: Download the application zip archive from codecanyon and unzip it somewhere on your computer. You will find 2 folders inside, “documentation” and “mobulatr”.

 

Step 2: Upload folder “mobulatr” to your FTP. If you don’t know how to connect to your domain(hosting) through FTP – please contact hosting provider and ask for assistance.

 

Step 3: Now, after mobulatr folder is uploaded to your FTP you can go to yoursite.com/mobulatr/

install.php and you should see following screen:

 

2016-03-11_2011

 

Step 4: Follow on-screen prompts & instructions.

2 important things to note at this step:

– database MUST exist already, script doesn’t create database, it will just use the one which you will allow it to.

– “Directory Path” must reflect the path where you uploaded “mobulatr’ folder, for example if you uploaded it to yoursite.com/mobulatr then directory path must be set to /mobulatr/ (with trailing slash!)

 

Step 5: After pressing submit – you will see success message on screen if everything went well, together with default admin password and username.

Note: if you will see error messages that some files/folders do not have CHMOD 777 set on them – all you need to do is login to your FTP account using ftp client like filezilla (filezilla- project.org) and then find those files/folders, right mouse click on them and select “Edit Permissions” – then set 777 (select all checkboxes). If you will have any issues with that – you can just provide following list of files which need to be set to 777 to your hosting provider:

1) /mobulatr/admin/includes/

2) /mobulatr/uploads/ (and ALL folders inside it)

3) /mobulatr/admin/log/

4) /mobulatr/cache/

5) /mobulatr/includes/dbconnect.php (this file will be set to restrictive chmod after installation automatically).

 

 

 

Installation complete! You can now go to yoursite.com/mobulatr/admin/ and use default username and password:  admin /  pass

 

Note: You should remove install.php after installation or rename it to something like fjkfjsdlfjs.php..

Configuration

Right after the installation – you will need to change admin email in SETTINGS of the product, after login.

2016-03-11_2012

Enter new email address in “ADMIN EMAIL” and click Save.

 

Also, please change default password to something of your liking.

 

You will see 2 other sub-menu items in SETTINGS section: “Live Emulators” and “Backgrounds”.

 

Settings => Live Emulators

 

This section allows you to add existing mobile site emulators for your client to try their existing site for mobile compatibility. 2 emulators are included by default.

Settings => Backgrounds

 

Here you can create backgrounds “library” for your projects. All backgrounds which you create here will be available for selection when you will be creating project.

Click “Add Background”  to add new one:

 

Please note – uploaded image will always be priority over the background color.

 

Clients

Clients is the main section where you should start after configuring settings and backgrounds/

emulators.

 

In order to create a project and start uploading your mockups and preview – you have to create a client first. There are 6 basic informationn fields when you go to Clients => Add Client

2016-03-11_2016

You have to enter at least contact name and company name. When done – press SAVE. Now you can proceed to Projects section, to create a project for this client.

 

Projects

To start uploading your designs and mockups – you have have create a project and assign it for one of the clients.

Go to projects -> Add Project

Untitled3

Now, when you’ve finished with adding your mockups – click save and go to all projects list – you will see the link and options to share the link with your client (in the table layout.)

Upgrades

If you would like to update to latest version and you’ve already installed Mobulatr, all you need to do is re-upload all the files from downloaded archive from codecanyon, EXCEPT mobulatr/ admin/includes/dbconnect.php

 

Simply dowload latest version from codecanyon.net, unzip somewhere on your computer, then use FTP software to upload files to your site FTP (pretty much same as when you did initial installation of this software).
