To work, Azuriom simply requires a web server with PHP having at least 100 MB of disk space and the following requirements:

  • PHP 8.1 or higher
  • URL Rewrite
  • Write/Read permissions on storage/ and bootstrap/cache/.
  • BCMath PHP Extension
  • Ctype PHP Extension
  • JSON PHP Extension
  • Mbstring PHP Extension
  • OpenSSL PHP Extension
  • PDO PHP Extension
  • Tokenizer PHP Extension
  • XML PHP Extension
  • XMLWriter PHP Extension
  • cURL PHP Extension
  • Zip PHP Extension

It’s also highly recommended having a MySQL/MariaDB or PostgreSQL database.

Requirements installation on a Linux based server

On a shared web hosting, there requirements will most likely already be installed, and you can continue directly to the Azuriom installation.

If you are using a VPS or a dedicated server, it will probably be necessary to install yourself a web server, PHP and MySQL. This can be done for example under Debian or Ubuntu with the following commands

apt update -y && apt upgrade -y

apt install -y nginx mariadb-server zip curl lsb-release apt-transport-https ca-certificates

wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/php.gpg
echo "deb $(lsb_release -sc) main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/php.list
apt update -y
apt install -y php8.2 php8.2-fpm php8.2-mysql php8.2-pgsql php8.2-sqlite3 php8.2-bcmath php8.2-mbstring php8.2-xml php8.2-curl php8.2-zip php8.2-gd

MySQL (MariaDB) is now installed, and you can create a database and a user with the following commands (remember to replace <password> with a secure password!):

mysql -u root
CREATE USER 'azuriom'@'' IDENTIFIED BY '<password>';

During installation, the database and database user will be azuriom and the password will be the one that replaces <password> in the command above.

Once the requirements are installed, you must configure the web server. Explanations are available at the bottom of this page.

If you prefer, you can also use this unofficial auto-install script which will install all the prerequisites automatically.


Azuriom offers an automatic installer to install Azuriom easily by following these few steps:

  1. Download the latest version of the Azuriom installer on our website.

  2. Extract the archive at the root of your website.

  3. Set write/read permissions to the root of your web server:

    chmod -R 755 /var/www/azuriom

    (just replace /var/www/azuriom with the site location)

    If the current user is not the web server user, it may be necessary to change the owner of the files:

    chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/azuriom

    (replace /var/www/azuriom with the site location and www-data with the web server user)

  4. Go to on your website and follow the steps of installation.

  5. (Optional) Setup the scheduler:

    Some features need the scheduler to be set up, for this you need to configure your server to run the command php artisan schedule:run every minute, for example by adding this Cron entry (don’t forget to replace /var/www/azuriom with the location of the site):

    * * * * * cd /var/www/azuriom && php artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1

    This can be done by modifying the crontab configuration with the crontab -e command.

Once the installation is complete, to prevent any issues, make sure your website can’t be accessed directly from the IP of the server (ex:

Web server configuration


If you are using Apache2, it may be necessary to enable URL rewriting.

To do this, first enable the “rewrite” mod:

a2enmod rewrite

Then you need to modify the Apache2 configuration (by default in the /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf file) and add the following lines between the <VirtualHost> tags (replacing var/www/azuriom by site location) to allow URL rewrite:

<Directory "/var/www/azuriom">
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Require all granted

Finally, you just need to restart Apache2:

service apache2 restart


If you are deploying Azuriom on a server that uses Nginx, you can use the following configuration:

server {
    listen 80;
    root /var/www/azuriom/public;

    add_header X-Frame-Options "SAMEORIGIN";
    add_header X-XSS-Protection "1; mode=block";
    add_header X-Content-Type-Options "nosniff";
    add_header Referrer-Policy "strict-origin-when-cross-origin";

    index index.html index.htm index.php;

    charset utf-8;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;

    location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }
    location = /robots.txt  { access_log off; log_not_found off; }

    error_page 404 /index.php;

    location ~ \.php$ {
        fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php8.2-fpm.sock;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $realpath_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include fastcgi_params;

    location ~ /\.(?!well-known).* {
        deny all;

This configuration must be placed in a site in site-available and not in the nginx.conf.

Just remember to replace with your domain, /var/www/azuriom with the location of the site (without removing the /public at the end of the line!) and php8.2 with your PHP version.

Finally, you can restart NGINX:

service nginx restart
