Installation, Update

Update the SobiPro Repository

Last updated: 30. December 2023
Refers to version: 1.6+ and 2.0+

SobiPro has a repository for automatically downloading and installing applications to which you have access.

Some applications are free, others require a specific level of a SobiPro subscription (club membership).
The repository is pre-installed in SobiPro for access to all free applications and language packs. To gain access to club applications, you must update the repository to specify your order ID and token that you will get in your club account. The order ID and token inform the repository of your subscription level and expiration time. If you have renewed your membership, you will get new credentials, and therefore you will also need to update the repository to provide your new data. This article shows how to update the SobiPro repository (also called reinstalling).

To ensure the security of the data provided, the repository is secured by an SSL certificate. Every year such a certificate expires, and we need to renew it. When renewing an SSL certificate, the serial number changes, and therefore you also need to update/reinstall the repository.

To successfully use the SobiPro repository, your server must meet the following requirements.

1) Some providers seem to provide this functionality within the PHP configuration, but at the same time they block outgoing connections in the firewall or disallow CURL for SSL URLs.
Please make sure that this functionality is activated and can actually be used.

Access the Application Manager

Once you have done this, the certificate information will appear. Please check if they are correct by comparing them with the most current certificate. If they meet the requirements, you must click Yes, these data are correct. Add/update the repository please..

The current certificate data are:

  • Serial Number: 0x49F5FE41A4F95F97A487339A9C7B1158
  • Issued On: 27.12.2023 00:00
  • Expires on: 28.09.2024 23:59

When prompted, enter your Subscription ID and your Token, which can be found on your personal club account page My Subscriptions. Click Send to complete the repository installation.

Please note: If you would like to have access to club applications, entering the subscription ID and token is NOT optional.
They are ONLY optional if you only want to install free applications, like the language packs, from the repository!

Now you can proceed with Application, Template and Language Installation via Repository.
