Installing nuBuilder Forte

To get nuBuilder Forte up and running you'll need to do 3 things...

  1. Copy nuBuilder Forte files into a directory on your server.
  2. Create a new MySQL or Maria DB database.
  3. Update the following variables in nuconfig.php...

  • $nuConfigDBHost
  • $nuConfigDBName
  • $nuConfigDBUser
  • $nuConfigDBPassword
  • $nuConfigDBGlobeadminUsername - globeadmin username
  • $nuConfigDBGlobeadminPassword - globeadmin password
  • $nuConfigTitle
  • $nuConfigIsDemo
  • $nuConfigTimeOut


       $nuConfigDBHost                 = "";
       $nuConfigDBName                 = "nubuilder4";
       $nuConfigDBUser                 = "root";
       $nuConfigDBPassword             = "";
       $nuConfigDBGlobeadminUsername   = "globeadmin";     //-- globeadmin username
       $nuConfigDBGlobeadminPassword   = "notpassword";    //-- globeadmin password
       $nuConfigTitle                  = "nuBuilder 4";
       $nuConfigIsDemo                 = false;
       $nuConfigTimeOut                = 1440;

Logging into nuBuilder for the first time will automatically create all the default system tables required for a new default copy of nuBuilder.
