Hello, have you tried out the steps that you are saying are difficult? if not then it is good to follow and try them out first and tell us where you exactly get problems.

And which Linux distro are you using?

Actually installing Flarum is really easy if you have ssh access on your server. I was able to install Flarum on my web hosting for PHP using the composer command:

composer create-project flarum/flarum . --stability=beta

Just make sure the server meets the requirement, which are:

  • Apache (with mod_rewrite enabled) or Nginx
  • PHP 7.1+ with the following extensions: curl, dom, gd, json, mbstring, openssl, pdo_mysql, tokenizer, zip
  • MySQL 5.6+ or MariaDB 10.0.5+
  • SSH (command-line) access to run Composer
