XF 1.5 2.0.0 Developer Preview 9 Install Question

Not open for further replies.


Active member
So I am a little confused/stuck on how to install version 2.

I am running a dedicated server on ubuntu 14 and running plesk to manage all my sites.

Is there a more straight forward way of installing, will the process change when it comes out of preview?

Also sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, wasn't sure where else to do so.

There's a full installation guide here: https://xf2demo.xenforo.com/dev-docs/#installation. You will need SSH access in order to perform the process.

I'm pretty sure the installation process will be a lot more simple for the actual release, but it is important to remember that this is just a Developer Preview.
I'm obviously aware of the install guide, with my setup I'm a bit confused on how to get it installed though.

Support for XenForo 2.0.0 Dev Previews is only available at the XF2 demo, at this time: https://xf2demo.xenforo.com.

As the preview releases are targeted towards developers, mostly working on local machines, the installation process is reasonable for that skill level. Once XF2 reaches beta, you will be able to install/upgrade via the web based UI.

Note the other restrictions with the developer preview mentioned here:
