• download latest version of mantisbt + unzip
  • if you install directly on main domain – just copy all files from unziped mantisdb directory directly into main domain directory (depends on your hosting – usually NOT the directory you login with ftp client)
  • if you install on subdomain – create subdomain directory + copy all files from unziped mantisdb directory into this directory
  • create database for mantis – usualy by requesting this action from your hosting provider -> for mantis you need:
    • admin + normal db user + their passwords,
    • database name,
    • hostname of machine with database
  • run: http://<your_domain_or_subdomain>/admin/install.php and enter all info requested
  • Mantis creates default user “administrator” with password “root”
