ImpressCMS 2.0 is still heavily under development, so things can change a lot on a weekly basis. Because of that, we do not recommend you use this version on a production website as we offer no upgrade path for pre-release versions.
That being said, ImpressCMS 2 is where all the exciting new stuff is happening, so we do encourage you to install it, get a feel of the new version and share your experience with us.
Download the zip file from this page (todo) and unzip the contents from that zip file in a local folder on your computer
The de facto package handler for PHP is now composer. ImpressCMS 2 uses composer to manage the different library dependencies.
Install composer following the steps described here : Get Composer (getcomposer.org)
WARNING: At the moment,make sure you install composer V1. Composer v2 has recently been released, but one of our library dependencies is not yet compatible with composer v2 and this will break building ImpressCMS v2.
In the folder where you unzipped your downloaded ImpressCMS 2 archive, execute the command 'composer install'.
Upload all the files, including the ones composer created in the /vendor folder, to your webhost. Make sure you upload them to a folder one level higher than the root folder of your webserver. That way, your files will not be easily accessible directly in a browser from the internet.
This should look something like 'https://my-address.com'. ImpressCMS will detect that you have not yet configured it, and will redirect you automatically to the installation walkthrough.
Finish the installer steps.
