How to email installation details

I have set up an installer with the sdk, and have got it working great.
I have two questions however.

Firslty, after install, how would i get it to email the details of the install to the installer, and perhaps also to the system admin?

Secondly, during my installation, i have to move files out of public_html so that they are out of public area. When I go to do an unintall, it does not remove the files.
Is there a way to tell installatron where to uninstall files from?

I'm loving Installatron by the way, great work.

Emailing installation details to the install owner is typically handled internally. There's options to configure this at Installatron Admin >> Settings >> Email.

In regards to moving files out of the install directory, there's no good method to keep these files attached to the install. Two options:

1) Keep the files inside the install directory but use a .htaccess file to block access.

Code: Select all

deny from all
2) Use a directory outside the install directory, but randomize the name of the directory so that multiple installs don't conflict with each other. The directory will persist after uninstall, but it won't cause any major issues.

If there are any further questions let us know.

Thank you,
