Step 1: Download
PHP Developers using Composer can use this command to install the latest stable release of Fork from the command line:
composer create-project forkcms/forkcms .
Alternatively, you can install Fork CMS by downloading it from the website. Before downloading, check if your server meets the [minimum requirements](03. minimum_requirements.md) for Fork CMS. If it does, create a MySQL database and remember the credentials. Next, download the latest release and unpack the folder.
Step 2: Upload
Upload the unpacked files into the document_root of your webserver. Make sure you've also copied the .htaccess file, as it may be hidden on certain fileservers.
Step 3: Installation
Use your browser to surf to your domain (this should forward you to the Fork CMS installer). [Follow the steps](02. installation_wizard.md) and you're done!
Don't panic if you experience problems during the installation. Start by taking a look at our [Frequently Asked Questions](07. faq.md).
