Attributes

This block contains information about the installed application, including location and database details.


The "edit these values & files" button allows you to edit the below information and files associated with the installed application.

Data File
The Installatron data file for this installed application. The data file contains the information displayed in this block, and is used by Installatron to manage and maintain the application. This value cannot be edited.

Tip: The data file makes an installed application appear in Installatron. If the data file is deleted the application will be removed from your "My Applications" tab, without affecting the installed files at all. Data files can be created by installing a new application or by using the Import tool documented below.

Title
The title of this installed application. The title helps you identify your individual application and is only used in Installatron.

Location URL
The location of the installed application as a URL.

A URL is a website link that can be viewed in a web browser.

Location Path
The location of the installed application as a path on the hosting web server.

The path shows where the application files and directories have been installed.

Database Type
The type of database system used by the installed application.

This value will be listed only if a database is used by the installed application.

Database Host
The location of the database server used by your web hosting account. This value is set by the server administrator. The location is commonly "localhost", however it will depend on your web hosting service.

This value will be listed only if a database is used by the installed application.

Database Name
The name of the database used by the installed application.

This value will be listed only if a database is used by the installed application.

Database Username
The username for the database used by the installed application.

This value will be listed only if a database is used by the installed application.

Database Password
The password for the database used by the installed application.

This value will be listed only if a database is used by the installed application.

Table Prefix
The table prefix used by the installed application.

The table prefix, for applications that support it, allows a database to be shared by multiple installations (of the same application, or different applications).

This value will be listed only if a database is used by the installed application.

Tip: If your web hosting account has the databases available, it is always better to install each application with its own database.

Administrator Username, Site Title, Language, etc.
If you entered settings values during the install process, the values can be edited here.

Note that these values are always synced with the installed application. Editing these values within Installatron changes them within the installed application, and editing these values within the installed application changes them within Installatron.

Configuration File #
An application can have one or more optional editable files available for editing within the Installatron GUI. These files are most often "configuration" or "settings" files, containing customizable values that are not editable through the application's own administration panel, but they could also be theme templates or any type of useful files.

These files are made editable in Installatron as an easy alternative to using FTP or the control panel's File Manager tool to edit the files. Installatron also allows the CHMOD (security) values to be changed.

Tip: CHMOD values of 644 and 755 are considered "secure", on files and directories respectively, but might prevent the application from editing files through its own GUI. CHMOD values of 666 and 777, for files and directories respectively, will allow the application to edit its own files and directories, but at an increased security risk.

Files & Directories
Presents a directory listing of the files and directories associated with the installed application. Files and directories in bold are known to be associated with the install. Files and directories not in bold were manually checked to be associated with the install.

Database & Tables
Presents a list of tables found in the database associated with the installed application, if a database is used. Tables in bold are known to be associated with the install. Tables not in bold were manually checked to be associated with the install.
