Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about MetaFox - phpFox V5

Please find the System Requirements of MetaFox

MetaFox is totally different from phpFox V4 in aspects of UI/UX design and technology stack. In MetaFox, we have redesigned the software architecture and rewritten both the Backend and Frontend. We focus on the Frontend with a new simplified UI design and employ React, the latest Frontend technology, to power the Frontend system. Meanwhile, the Backend of the software which is rewritten based on Laravel, the most popular framework, will expose API for the Frontend (and apps: mobile/tablet/desktop/other apps) to consume. Database engines MySQL and Postgres will be supported at the beginning. Moreover, there's also a new layout organization and live layout editor for admins.

Installing MetaFox on shared hosting is simple and quick with a few clicks via Wizard. Certainly, we are going to provide you with detailed installation guide. Generally, you will upload source package on the shared hosting. Then, go to the URL for installation wizard and go through installation steps.

For Perpetual License Holders: You can just pay the difference in cost to upgrade to Ultimate, which is $1060.

For Subscription License Holders: Please submit a ticket to our support team to conduct the upgrade.
