copy/rename the dist-config.php file to config.php

If you have not created an mysql-user yet, in mysql cli, alter the below commands and execute:


CREATE USER IF NOT EXISTS 'noah-user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'r0dgr0d';

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'noah-user'@'localhost';


Edit the config.php and alter the db_host, db_name, db_user and db_password

  • /* Database settings */
  • $db_host = 'localhost';
  • $db_name = 'gnf_noah';
  • $db_user = '';
  • $db_pwd = '';
  • Note: the Docker version of Noah (osomanden/debian-noah) ( and gets the db info from .env file.

    Do not alter the config.php file in the docker container!

    Use the install.sql from the /install path to create the new Noah Database

    cd install

    mysql -u<noah-user> -p gnf_noah < noah_install.sql

    go to upgrade path and run the command:

    cd upgrade/

    php upgrade.php

    for the latest database version


    Note: some versions of .ini needs some alterations to avoid errors.

    CentOS / Debian:

    ; error_reporting

    ; Default Value: E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE

    ; Development Value: E_ALL | E_STRICT

    ; Production Value: E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED


    short_open_tag = On


    In some cases mysql is set to STRICT on basic installation.

    Optional remedy:

    var/ directory

    In some cases it is not enough to alter rights or ownership on var/ directory as stated. Noah will still provide an error like this:

    The '/var/www/html/var/' folder - and folders in that folder - needs to be set to writeable to apache. In unix, chmod -R 775 var/. System has stopped!

    The solution so far is: chcon -R --type httpd_sys_rw_content_t //var/

    CentOs specifics:

    mb_internal_coding() is per default NOT installed!
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 www]# yum install php-mbstring

    To fix Apache write access:
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 www]# cd /var/www/
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 www]# cd html/
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 www]# chown apache:apache -R html/
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 www]# cd html/
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 html]# find . -type f -exec chmod 0644 {} \;
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 html]# find . -type d -exec chmod 0755 {} \;
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 html]# chcon -t httpd_sys_content_t /var/www/html/ -R
    [root@centos-s-1vcpu-1gb-ams3-01 html]# chcon -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t var/ -R
