How to install Xibo Digital Signage

xiboXibo Digital Signage has been developed as a client / server model.

Xibo is an open-source project which means you can download the latest version for free.


Installation of the Server

The server is a web server, and having a web server as the platform means that you could build your own on-site LAMP server for each separate site, or you can use your internet web server to allow a single Digital Signage program to be published across various sites, giving you a consistent "corporate image".  Investigate web hosting for more information.

  1. Create a MySQL database (eg called Xibo) and create an admin user.
  2. Create an appropriate sub domain (eg Xibo.yourdomain.com).
  3. Download icon xibo-server-1.0.3-1.zip (2.1 MB)
  4. Extract the zip file on your web host.
  5. Browse to http://xibo.yourdomain.com and follow the wizard.

 

Installation of the client

The client is currently only available for a Windows XP workstation (work is underway to develop a Linux client).

  1. Build a Windows XP workstation.
  2. Download icon xibo-client-1.0.3-win32-x86.msi (2.0 MB)
  3. Right-click the downloaded file and choose Install.
  4. Follow the wizard.
