It's just a PHP web app. You upload it to a domain serving PHP.

The tool is still in its early stages of development, but I've looked around its documentation and I think that you should be able to use it in our environment.

Feel free to comment any issues you might encounter or open a support ticket.

The application requires root to run, so it can not work on our platform as we do not allow root access,

$ ./storage upgrade
Unable To Connect: Attempt to connect to root@localhost failed with error #1045: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO).

According to phabricator's documentation you can override the default database user. See the "Storage: Configuring MySQL" section.

It definitely does work to run Phabricator on Webfaction. A few articles helped me to get it working:

  1. To set up APC php extension: https://community.webfaction.com/questions/6679/how-do-i-install-the-apc-pecl-extension-for-my-php-53-application
  2. To set up .htaccess file: http://www.quora.com/Phabricator/How-do-you-set-up-Phabricator-on-Dreamhost (I set up symlinks from the webapp's directory to phabricator/webroot/*)
  3. To set up a private MySQL instance: http://docs.webfaction.com/software/private-databases.html?highlight=mysql#private-mysql-instances
  4. To support pcntl module of php: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5230255/how-to-enable-process-control-extension-pcntl-in-php-mamp. I also needed to adjust PHPRC and PATH environment variables to have php find the right extensions.

We do not have a detailed guide at this time, but the following general steps should get you going in the right direction:

Those steps should get you most of the way there. Hope that helps!
