QloApps Installation Process

QloApps is an open-source hotel booking & reservation software providing features that will help hoteliers to launch a user-friendly online hotel booking website. This is the step-wise guide to QloApps Installation Process.

This article helps you to download and install QloApps software with ease.

Downloading QloApps is very simple. Just visit our website
Click on Download Button

Now on the next page which appears there is a field for Sponsoring Us.

It is an optional field. If you wish to support us then you can make any contribution. And if do not wish to make a contribution then just click on Download and the ZIP file of the software will be downloaded.

After downloading the software the next step will be creating the database which will be configured with QloApps during the installation.

This database will be used by the system to store your hotel-related information like a hotel, rooms, bookings, etc.

To create a database Goto your database’s PHPMyAdmin by entering your URL/phpmyadmin in the address bar of your browser

After logging in into your account Click on the Database Tab

Create database. It is part of QloApps Installation Process

Now create a database and take a note of the database name as you will require the same name in the further installation process.

After creating an empty database, unzip QloApps software zip files and upload it to your server.

Note: Make sure you didn’t upload the root folder directly, only the files and folders that it contains.

Step 1: Unzip the ZIP file you downloaded from the QloApps website.

Step 2: Now copy all the files & folders in the hotelcommerce folder and upload them to your server

After uploading your files it is time to start the installation. To start the installation access the uploaded QloApps file from your public URL.

As you hit your public URL the installation will start.

Here are the installation steps:

    Error during installation:
    “SQL error on query All parts of a PRIMARY KEY must be NOT NULL; if you need NULL in a key, use UNIQUE instead”
    Do you have a work around / fix available?
  • Balamurugan

  • Lee Clough
    When installing the system I get presented with an error when trying to create the tables in the database and the install fails
    • Faiz Ansari
      Hi Lee,
      The error maybe because of the server incompatibility. So check whether your server is compatible or not. And if still there is an issue then raise you issue on the forum:

    Is there a separate control panel for hoteliers to add their hotels?
    • Faiz Ansari
      With default QloApps admin can upload his hotels from the backend. But if you need other hoteliers to list and sell their inventory on your website then you must consider QloApps Marketplace.
  • naser
    Can I add it to wix?
    • Faiz Ansari
      QloApps is an independent system just like any other platform. It is not an addon that can be added to any platform. We will have to integrate the system as per your requirement.

    Thanks a ton for QLo group for their efforts. I would like to integrate the system with other platforms like Oyo, Booking, agoda etc… If a booking arrives from any of these partners, I want the QLO to get updated seamlessly. Is there any solution or option avaiable
