    OpenLabyrinth uses a very plain, simple web-server setup, based on Apache, MySQL and PHP (xAMP). For those who are used to setting up such servers, the process should be quite straightforwards.

    The most broadly used setup is based on a Linux server (LAMP). It does help to have some basic skills with the Linux command line.

    While the installation should be simple, we have also found some little things will get in the way of a smooth install. The commonest issues seem to relate to paths and permissions.

    We generally recommend that you place the files into the default installation folder for your web server. This varies from OS to OS, unfortunately.

    While you can install into another folder, you will have to do some tweaking of some configuration files to make sure that the application points to the right place. This can be finicky.

    Folder permissions are another common issue, especially in a Linux environment. Please check out the install notes on GitHub because several folders need wide open 777 permissions.
