DAP Easy Installer

Share this

Hey Dappers!

We’re thrilled to announce the Beta launch of our newest plugin, DAP Easy Installer!

We created this plugin with the goal of making DAP Installations & Upgrades simple, easy and efficient.

And we strongly believe that this plugin achieves that goal.

What can this plugin do?

Perform New DAP Installations & Upgrades 

You can use this plugin for BOTH new DAP Install as well as DAP Upgrade from one version to another.

No FTP Required

You no longer need to use FTP to upload the DAP and LiveLinks files.

Checks Minimum Requirements

This plugin will check and make sure that your server meets the minimum requirement to run DAP. If anything is missing, it will report exactly what’s missing right away.

And It’s FREE!

And the best thing is…. this plugin is FREE for all DAP users! The only requirement is that you must have active and current access to DAP Upgrades and Support. If your access has expired, you may renew at this link.

We would love for you to use this plugin and experience error-free and seamless DAP Installations & Upgrades. So download it from the member’s area, and let us know via a support ticket if you run into any issues.

IMPORTANT:

Even though we have tested it pretty well, this is still a Beta release. So if you have a live and active DAP-powered membership site, please hold off on using this plugin to upgrade your current DAP installation, until we release the final version.

However, you are highly encouraged to use it for a new DAP installation, as there isn’t any existing data to worry about with a new DAP installation.

You will find the plugin documentation here.

And as always, feel free to leave your questions and comments below 🙂

Cheers!

Veena Prashanth and Ravi Jayagopal

  1. Congratulations guys! Thank you for making life easier. I`m not sure if it`s for me though. My maine website is HTML with DAP folder in the same root. WP however is in subdomain. Will this plug-in work in this case?

  2. Just used the DAP easy installer on a new installation and noticed it did not fill in my DAP license code into the DAP installation. Is it supposed to? Or is it right to have to fill it in to get the easy installer to work and then again for DAP itself?

    Thanks.

  3. Hi Adam,

    This is a WP plugin. If it’s a HTML site, you can still use it to complete the minimum requirements check and to automatically upload files without requiring FTP.

    You can skip the Step 3 (DAPLiveLinks activation) in the DAPEasyInstaller plugin settings as that’s only needed for WP based membership sites.

    For a HTML site, you will have to visit this page to complete the installation after the plugin automatically uploads the files:

    http://YourSite.com/dap/install/

    You need to have WP in the same domain as DAP even if you do not use DAP to protect and manage WP content.

    Your WP installation can be in the main folder or in a sub-folder but WP cannot be in a different domain/subdomain.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  4. Hi Mike,

    >> Awesome. This worked flawlessly. << Cool. That was quick :). Thanks for letting us know. >>Just used the DAP easy installer on a new installation and noticed it did not fill in my DAP license code into the DAP installation. Is it supposed to? Or is it right to have to fill it in to get the easy installer to work and then again for DAP itself? << It will ONLY fill in the license number automatically if it's an upgrade (existing DAP installation). For a new install, please enter the license key in the easy installer plugin settings. Thanks, Veena

  5. Hi Veena Prashanth i check this video and see the beta tester for dap and i have a Unlimited License.,
    but my question is. If I install this new version overwrites the version that I have and not lose the subcriptores or customers or according to the version of LiveLinks and version from dap. And question two what time for the licensed for this dap DAP Easy Installer. Thanks

  6. Hi Killo,

    >>If I install this new version overwrites the version that I have and not lose the subcriptores or customers or according to the version of LiveLinks and version from dap << You will NOT lose any data. This plugin only replaces the files. It does not alter the database. Thanks, Veena

  7. Thank you very much for a superb plugin. I was able to upgrade my DAP installation within one minute. Everything is running fine.

    In case you didn’t know yet: the DAP Easy Installer plugin is even working on a WordPress multisite (MU) installation without any glitches. Perfect!

  8. Hi Team

    Fantastic news! You go out of your way to make our lives easier – thank you!

    I’m very keen to use the new cancellation for ClickBank function for the latest DAP version, is it still in Beta?

    Thanks again, you guys rock!

  9. Hi Veena,

    Thank you for your reply.
    My DAP is in main root as suppose to be. However WP is installed in http://MySite.com/Subfolder
    WP is ONLY installed for Secure Membership purposes, which works with DAP and WPLiveLinks are installed as well. I will try now to add your plugin to WP. Let`s see what happens

  10. Hiya Veena,

    Great plugin. I’ve installed it, but I’m getting a false error reading on my version of mySQL. It says I’m on a lower version than 5, but in fact I’m on 5.6, so it won’t let me upgrade or do an install at all.. Just confirmed the version with my hosting service. Apart from that, it looks great.

  11. Hi Graeme,

    >>I’m very keen to use the new cancellation for ClickBank function for the latest DAP version, is it still in Beta? << It's pretty stable. The beta users have not reported any major issues. We certainly hope to make it DAP 4.6 final early next week as we are getting ready to release DAP 4.7 beta ! Thanks, Veena

  12. Hi Veena,

    Indeed it’s a nice plugin – however, just wondering whether it may be possible in the future that, for future upgrades, we don’t even have to download the DAP.zip and Livelink zip, yet the system will be able to detect whether a subscription is still in place for an upgrade, and upgrade automatically in the background, like many other plugins can do?

    Thanks,
    Roy

  13. Hi Roy,

    We will have to make calls to the licensing server to do the checks to completely automate it. It’s doable but a lot of work. Certainly something we will do in future.

    Thanks for the feedback.

Please delete the old version of this plugin, download the new version from our site and install / activate it on your site. It should work well. Thanks, Veena

  15. WOW!!!
    Veena and Ravi, you have made yet another powerful plugin…and “easy installer” is really quite an understatement. Your cool tool guided me step by step to a quick and successful upgrade of everything DAP.

    Thank you!
