Setting up TYPO3 manually

Prerequisites

You will need a Webserver, PHP and database on your system. Look at the page System requirements and also check out the specific system requirements for the current master branch on the Download TYPO3 page.

You will need to set up the prerequisites for your operating system. Look at the following for guidance:

Clone TYPO3

Create a clone of git as described in git clone, run composer install and optionally yarn install.

git clone git://git.typo3.org/Packages/TYPO3.CMS.git .
composer install

Create the database

We are assuming, the database should be called t3coredev and you will access it with username typo3 and password somepassword from localhost.

mysql> CREATE DATABASE t3coredev CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
mysql> CREATE USER `typo3`@`localhost` identified by `somepassword`;
mysql> GRANT ALL ON t3coredev.* TO `typo3`@`localhost`;

Create FIRST_INSTALL

In your htdocs directory:

touch FIRST_INSTALL

Continue …

You can now access the TYPO3 installation wizard by going to, e.g. http://t3coredev/typo3/. Follow the instructions of the installation wizard.
