PHP EasyInstaller is an easy-to-setup PHP script that helps create a user-friendly installation wizard for the PHP code package you have developed. The script is suitable for existing as well as new web applications. This installer uses a simple wizard-driven interface. You are guided through question and answers to the next step. Thus, it should be simple for anyone, even without programming experience, to create the installer for your product, the script package. The installer thus created will help your customers install the CGI and PHP scripts easily. This installer generator is particularly handy for web developers wanting to start supplying a product or even to improve an existing product.
The customization is held through a settings.php file. General settings are EI-mode that sets the installation mode such as demo, debug and production. Other such general settings that can be managed include checking if the minimum required version of PHP runs on a server, specify a default language, etc. Settings are available related to the database use and configuration related. Some configuration template parameters also could be set. Other preparatory steps include preparing SQL dump file and blocking unexpected access to the application. As would be obvious, this part of the process will have to be handled by an experienced PHP programmer. It is only after this configuration is done that it can be handed over to a beginner even. Just creating the installer then is simple. This is a very nice tool indeed.
