osticket 1.6.rc5


osTicket is a widely-used open source support ticket system. It seamlessly integrates inquiries created via email and web-based forms into a simple easy to use multi-user web interface. Easily manage, organize and archive all your support requests and responses in one place.

Getting Started

At this point download the latest osTicket. Uncompress the files and upload files and directories in upload directory to a directory of your choice on your server. For example /opt/osticket

mkdir -p /temp/downloads
cd /temp/downloads
wget http://www.osticket.com/dl/osticket_1.6.rc5.tar.gz

Latest version: https://github.com/osTicket/osTicket/releases/download/v1.9.13/osTicket-v1.9.13.zip

tar xvzf osticket_1.6.rc5.tar.gz
mv /temp/downloads/osticket_1.6.rc5 /opt/osticket
chown -R www.www /opt/osticket
chmod 750 /opt/osticket
mkdir -p /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf/
mkdir -p /opt/osticket/upload/attachments
chmod 777 /opt/osticket/upload/attachments

osTicket installer needs to be able to write and modify ostconfig.php found in the upload's root directory. Change the permission settings for the ostconfig.php file so that it is writable by the webserver.

chmod 777 /opt/osticket/upload/include/ost-config.php

Using web installation script

Once all of the above steps are complete, you can complete the installation and basic setup in a web browser. You can invoke the installer by simply browsing the osTicket URL http://www.yourdomain.com/support/setup/


Finishing Up

If the setup script has finished running with no errors, then congratulations osTicket is installed. Your next step should be to fully configure your new support ticket system for use, but before you get to it please take a second to cleanup.

Change permission of ostconfig.php to 644

Delete install directory.

cd /opt/osticket/upload
chmod 644 ostconfig.php
rm -rf /opt/osticket/upload/setup

We are done! You can now log in with the username and password you created during the install process. After a successful log in, you can proceed with the next step, Post-Install Setup.
