How to Install Admidio with LAMP Stack on AlmaLinux 8

Admidio is free online membership management, which is optimized for associations, groups, and organizations. In addition to classic user management, it consists of a variety of modules that can be installed and adjusted on a new or existing homepage. In this article, we are going to learn how to install Admidio on AlmaLinux 8. So, let’s get started.

Checkout the Admidio Project Here.

Try this wiki on our VPS. Starting at just $5/month with 24x7 In-house customer support.

Pre-requisites :

  • A system with AlmaLinux 8 installed and running.

  • root access to the system.

  • LAMP Stack installed and running, for this, you can refer to one of our guides on installing the LAMP Stack (Apache, MariaDB, and PHP).

Once you're all set, we'll proceed with Admidio installation and configuration.

Create Database

Let us begin with creating a Database and a user. We will then grant the required privileges to the user so it can interact with the Database.

mysql -u root


CREATE USER 'crowncloud'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'UYGVc%$#Erfgt*&^%7';

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON crowncloud.* TO 'crowncloud'@'localhost';



The above commands will give complete access to the user crowncloud. We would suggest using a strong and long password.

Configuring Apache vHost

Create a new folder named Admidio under the public folder.

mkdir -p /var/www/html/admidio

Create a new apache configuration file for the domain with the following command:

nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/

Add the following codes:

  <VirtualHost *:80>
  DocumentRoot /var/www/html/admidio

  <Directory /var/www/html/admidio/>
      Options -Indexes +FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride All

  ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/
  CustomLog /var/log/httpd/ combined

Change with Your Domain Name.

Now, press the Esc key, and type in :wq! and press the Enter key to save and exit the file.

Now, restart & check the apache with the following commands:

systemctl restart httpd

systemctl status httpd

Enable Firewall:

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=http

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=https

firewall-cmd --reload

chmod +x admidio

chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_rw_t /var/www/html/admidio/adm_my_files

chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_rw_t /var/www/html/admidio/

Restart Apache

Restart apache to avoid getting error messages.
