EQdkp-Plus is released under the AGPLv3 License.


We’re using PHP in the stable version 7.4:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ uberspace tools version show php
Using 'PHP' version: '7.4'
[isabell@stardust ~]$

You’ll need your MySQL credentials. Get them with my_print_defaults:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ my_print_defaults client
[isabell@stardust ~]$

If you want to use your EQdkp Plus with your own domain you need to setup your domain first:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ uberspace web domain list
[isabell@stardust ~]$

Create Database

EQdkp-Plus saves your data in a MySQL database. It is recommended to use an additional database (e.g. isabell_eqdkp) instead of the default database.

[isabell@stardust ~]$ mysql -e "CREATE  DATABASE ${USER}_eqdkp"
[isabell@stardust ~]$


cd to your document root, then download the latest release of EQdkp Plus and extract it:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ cd ~/html/
[isabell@stardust html]$ curl -L https://eqdkp-plus.eu/repository/download/latestcore -o eqdkp-plus.zip
 % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current

[isabell@stardust html]$ unzip eqdkp-plus.zip && rm eqdkp-plus.zip
[isabell@stardust html]$

Now point your browser to your uberspace URL and follow the instructions of the Installer Assistant.

You will need to enter the following information:

  • your MySQL hostname, username and password: the hostname is localhost and you should know your MySQL credentials by now. If you don’t, start reading again at the top.

  • your MySQL database name: insert the name of the created additional MySQL database

  • an encryption key: choose a strong encryption key, as sensitive data is encrypted using this key. You can generate a strong key:

[isabell@stardust html]$ pwgen 32 1
[isabell@stardust html]$
  • Make additional settings like setting first day of week etc. The script path setting is automatically detected and only needs to be changed if the detection will fail. The script path is the subfolder of your domain. If you follow this tutorial, it is /.

  • Administrator username and password: choose a username (maybe not admin) and a strong password for the admin user


The easiest way to update EQdkp Plus is to use the web updater provided in the admin section of the Web Interface.


Check the news regularly to stay informed about new updates and releases.


Backup the following directories:

  • ~/html/

Additionally, backup the MySQL database:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ mysqldump isabell_eqdkp | xz - > ~/isabell_eqdkp.sql.xz
