Step 1: Setting up the commands for the installation

How to Set Up Opigno LMS on Ubuntu –

Follow these steps if you are using Ubuntu:

  • Open the shell and go to the /var/www/html folder.
  • Make one HTML folder. 
  • Run this command to put opigno-composer in the folder you just made.

composer create-project opigno/opigno-composer:^3.0

Putting Opigno LMS on a Windows computer –

If you are using Windows, you can run Opigno LMS by doing the following:

  • Go to http://xampp/htdocs
  • Start with one folder.
  • Run this command to put opigno-composer in the folder you just made.

composer make-project opigno/opigno-composer:3.0

This will update your machine to the latest version of Opigno-composer.

Step 2: Put Opigno LMS on your operating system

Installing Opigno-LMS is the next step after running the scripts shown in step 1. Follow the steps below to set up Opigno-LMS:

  • Go to the folder opigno-composer, which was just loaded, from the terminal.
  • Run the following code in this folder:

composer need opigno/opigno_lms:3.0 dompdf/dompdf:0.8.5 –with-all-dependencies

This will put Opigno-LMS and all of its requirements in place.

Step 3: Make simple changes in Opigno LMS

Now that the Opigno LMS is set up, there are some basic settings that need to be changed. You must do each of the following in order:

  • Go to the websites/default folder and use the existing default.settings.php file to make the settings.php file.
  • Give write access to the settings.php file so that it can list the database and the link to it when it’s being installed. To give someone permission to write, you can run the command:
  • sudo chmod 777 -R settings.php
  • Make a folder called “files” inside the default folder where you just made the settings.php file.
  • You should also be able to write in the files area. To give someone permission to write, you can run the command:
sudo chmod 777 -R files

Step 4: Putting your site together

After you’ve done all of the steps above, you’re ready to install the site. To set up the site visit path, you need to:


At this point, you will be able to see the Drupal application. Fill in all the necessary information, like the name of the database, the username, and the password, and the installation will continue.

Step 5: Set up the site

You will be asked to set up the site after download. Set it up by giving it the site’s name, email address, and other information.

This finishes setting up your blog.

Step 6: Finish installing Opigno LMS

The system will now try to send you to the user path. If you can’t get to that page, it will say “No requested URL found.”

Create a virtual host for the site and give the path up to the web folder to fix this problem. Try to get to the site with the virtual host once it has been set up. It will take you to a page where you can log in, as shown in Fig. 1.

LMS Installation

Fill in the details you put in when you set up the site (see Step 5) and continue with Fig. 2.


Once you’ve checked your passwords, you’ll be logged in and able to see the dashboard, as shown in Fig. 3 below.
