Quick Install Guide

  • TIP: This guide is designed for the user that is familiar with installing scripts via FTP or SFTP and already has a Web Hosting account with a hosting provider.

    Make sure and check out Jamroom Hosted to get up and running without having to manually install Jamroom:

  • Step 2: Upload the files to your web hosting account

    The next step is to fire up your FTP (or SFTP) client and connect to your web hosting account.

    Upload the files from the Jamroom product you downloaded into the location on your hosting server you want to run Jamroom from.
  • Step 1: Download Jamroom Open Source or Premium

    The first step is to make sure you have downloaded the latest release of either the Jamroom Open Source Core:


    or a trial version of Jamroom Premium:


    either way the installation is the same. Download the package to your local PC/Mac and unzip the downloaded ZIP package if your computer didn't already do it for you.
  • TIP: The Jamroom files are going to be located in a directory with a name like "jamroom-open-source-latest" - you want to upload the files WITHIN that directory to your hosting account - don't upload the directory itself.
  • Step 3: Run the Jamroom Installer

    Step 3: Run the Jamroom Installer
    Now load up the location you installed Jamroom to in your favorite browser - you should see the install screen (see image to the right).

    Enter the required install information, press the "Install Jamroom" button and in a few seconds Jamroom will be installed and ready to run on your site.

    NOTE: If you are not sure what to enter, your hosting provider should be able to assist you in creating the Database needed for Jamroom to function.
  • TIP: Make sure and enter an email address during the installation - that way the Jamroom Marketplace will be automatically setup for you after install.
  • Step 4: Create the Master Admin account

    Step 4: Create the Master Admin account
    After successfully installing Jamroom the next step is to the create the FIRST account on the system - this will become the MASTER ADMIN account, which grants unrestricted access to the system.

    After you've created your Master Admin account, head on to the next section - the First Steps after Installation.
