On server side, we need:

1) A Webserver running PHP v5.4+ (v5.4 and onwards)

2) Database server (Mysql, Sql-Server, Oracle, SQLite or any other you use)

On client side, we have tested it on famous browsers of Windows, MacOS and Linux.

Installing Demos using Web Installer

1) Extract the downloaded product archive in web root. e.g. www/gridphp

2) Open it in browser to run installer. e.g. http://localhost/gridphp and following the intallation steps.

Installing Demos Manually

1) Execute "database.sql" on a Mysql Database. It will create 'griddemo' database.

2) Place all files in a directory on the web server. e.g. ".../www/gridphp/"

3) Rename config.sample.php to config.php, and update database config. e.g.


// It will work in normal cases, unless you change lib folder location

4) Run the product demos in browser. e.g. http://localhost/gridphp/index.php

Integration in your Project

To integration in your app, copy 'lib' folder to your project. You need to consider 3 things.

1) Set DB config

$db_conf = array();
$db_conf["type"] = "mysqli";
$db_conf["server"] = PHPGRID_DBHOST; // or you mysql ip
$db_conf["user"] = PHPGRID_DBUSER; // username
$db_conf["password"] = PHPGRID_DBPASS; // password
$db_conf["database"] = PHPGRID_DBNAME; // database

// pass connection array to jqgrid()
$g = new jqgrid($db_conf);

2) The folder ../../lib will be replaced by path where you place lib folder (if changed)

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="../../lib/js/themes/start/jquery-ui.custom.css"></link>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="../../lib/js/jqgrid/css/ui.jqgrid.css"></link>
<script src="../../lib/js/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../../lib/js/jqgrid/js/i18n/grid.locale-en.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../../lib/js/jqgrid/js/jquery.jqGrid.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../../lib/js/themes/jquery-ui.custom.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

3) Update include path where you place lib/inc/ folder (if changed)

$g = new jqgrid($db_conf);

Upgrading from older version

To upgrade you just need to update files of two folder lib/inc & lib/js.

  • Take a backup of current lib/inc & lib/js folders.
  • Replace lib/inc & lib/js from the new version archive to your existing datagrid implementation.
  • You may need to clear browser cache to remove the effect of previous JS and CSS files.

Same process applies when upgrading from free version to full version.

Upgrading to v2.8 from previous versions

If you are using custom toolbar buttons, there a slight change required after upgrade.

Previous implementation is to have JS code in following way:


In v2.8 and onwards, move this code inside a setTimeout() delay of 10ms:
