Installation, Update

Application, Template and Language Installation via Repository

Last updated: 14. July 2020
Refers to version: 1.6

One of the great features in SobiPro is the built-in repository. It will allow to download and install the latest SobiPro applications, language and template packages from the SobiPro repository.

Some applications are for free, others need a SobiPro subscription (club membership).
The repository is pre-installed in SobiPro, to get access to all free applications and language packages. In order to get access to the club applications, you need to update the repository providing your order id and token, which you will get in your club account.
If you renewed your membership, you got new access data, thus you also need to update the repository and enter your new data.

Access the Application Manager

Fetch Updates, if necessary

Once the SobiPro Application Manager screen opens you will see the Installed Applications screen. Click on Available Applications.

If you have a new SobiPro installation, the list of available applications is empty ("The list of available applications is not available. Click on the 'Fetch Updates' button to get the list."). Click on the Fetch Updates button on the upper right side to get an updated list of the available applications. Repeat this each time you want a new updated list loaded from the repository.

Update the Repository, if necessary

To install club applications and templates you will need to update the repository (if not already done) providing your order id and token, which you will get in your club account. Click on Manage Repositories to update the repository. See Update the SobiPro Repository for further instructions.
Your access to the club applications expires together with your membership. If you renew your membership, you will get new access data, thus you need to update the repository again and enter your new data.

Install Applications from the List

If the list of available applications is loaded, click on one of the tabs to get a list of the available Applications, Fields, Templates and Languages. Click on Others, the get the list of available modules and plugins.
To install them, just click on the Install button.

The repository provides your site with a zip-packed package. Your server has to have the Zip extension installed in order to let SobiPro unzip the package before installation!

If an application is already installed, what is shown by a tick (checkmark) () in the State column, click on Re-install to re-install the same version of the application you already have installed.

If a newer version of an application is available, you will see an orange bell sign () in the State column. To install this newer version, click on Update next to it.

You can click on several of these buttons, to install applications simultaneously.

If you see a popup, telling you that the application you want to install is available only within a club subscription, one or more of the following reasons may be the case:

your subscription level is too low for a specific application
This is the case if you have for example a Bronze subscription, but try to install an application available only for Silver and Gold subscribers.
you haven't updated the repository
You need to update the repository and provide your subscription id and token.
You have updated the repository, but without providing your subscription id and token
To get access to club only applications, the subscription id and token is NOT optional. Without providing your subscription id and token, you will get access only to free applications, such as language packages.
your subscription has lapsed
Access to club only applications are possible only with a valid subscription for the SobiPro club.
