Installation. Self-Hosted Version

DNHAT  is being offered under two setup options:
- Self-hosted marketplace solution 

- Marketplace hosted on our server (Cloud-based)

Setting up your domain marketplace will vary, based on the option you have decided to go with. Below are necessary instructions on how to go about the task for the first option. 

Self-Hosted version deployment on your Server (website)

DNHAT. License
 DNHAT is NOT open source.
DNHAT is Commercial software.
  • You must purchase a license in order to install or/and use DNHAT on your domain or web server
  • One license is valid for one domain only. Each domain needs a separate license
  • Illegal distribution of DNHAT is prohibited
System Requirements
DNHAT should run on standard web server meeting the minimum requirements as stipulated below.
DNHAT can be hosted on any type of Linux hosting (shared, VPS, Dedicated Server etc.). Your web hosting server must support:
  • PHP 5.0.5 or higher
  • Required PHP extensions:
    • mbstring, iconv for proper utf-8 encoding handling
    • Ioncube loader
  • MySQL 5.1.10 or higher
  • PDO database driver for MySQL (pdo_mysql or pdo_mysqli) or Postgres (pdo_pgsql)
  • These are standard requirements and most web hosting servers have them in place. If in doubt, consult with your ISP.

    It is also assumed that all PHP default (e.g. hash, session, etc.) libraries are enabled.
    DNHAT is packaged with installer that will guide you through the installation process.
    The installation wizard checks necessary system requirements and will continue only if they meet the minimum needed for the scripts to function properly on your server.
    There are no configuration/settings file(s) or tables to create or edit manually. The installer will do all necessary file creation and updates on the fly.
     If you miss something during the installation process, click the question (?) mark for hints and tips.
