The process of installation
Firstly, you need to have the domain name and hosting with the FFmpeg support. You have to determine who will host the website because sometimes you might receive free domain name. Some of the hosting companies will host your website free of cost or for a nominal fee so that they will take advantage from your website by putting up the advertisements. Consider a good package for your website sp that it handles all type of queries.

You must download the program from the internet.

Open the FTP program and long into the FTP account. The entire content of the PHPmotion into your or public HTML folder. Allow the PHPmotion to overwrite anything that is available there and depending upon the connection speed, it takes some time and after uploading, proceed next.

If the hosting works with the cPanel, login to the cPanel account. Most of them have CPanel, some do not have this facility, and you can go with MySQL database. If you have a MySQL account already, proceed further with the next step.

Now you must change the mode using the CHMOD command. It is a shell command in UNIX and in unix-like environments. When it is executed, it changes the file and mode of them.
Another best way to do is by using the cPanel (it provides the graphical interface).
