5 Minute Install
Here's the quick version of the instructions, for those that are already comfortable with performing such installations. More detailed instructions follow.
- Download and unzip the OpenDocMan package, if you haven't already.
- Create a database for OpenDocMan on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
- Create a folder outside of your public html folder that will contain your data files. This will be your “dataDir” folder in the config. For example, `mkdir /home/joeuser/document_repository/`
- Make sure the permissions and ownership of the data folder will allow for the web server to write to it. For example, `chgrp apache /home/joeuser/document_repository/; chmod 770 /home/joeuser/document_repository`
- You may also need to edit your apache settings to get the permissions working. The installation script has some examples that you will be presented with.
- Place the OpenDocMan software files in the desired location on your web server:
- If you want to integrate OpenDocMan into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped OpenDocman directory (but excluding the directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.
- If you want to have your OpenDocMan installation in its own subdirectory on your web site (e.g. http://example.com/docs/), rename the directory opendocman-x.x to the name you'd like the subdirectory to have and move or upload it to your web server. For example if you want the OpenDocMan installation in a subdirectory called “docs”, you should rename the directory called “opendocman-x.x” to “docs” and upload it to the root directory of your web server.
- Make sure there is a templates_c folder ( ex. “mkdir templates_c” ), and the templates_c folder is writeable (ex. “chmod 775 templates_c” )
- Run the OpenDocMan installation script by accessing the opendocman folder URL in a web browser.
- Fill out the necessary form fields during the installer
- When you get to the last page, you click on the “New installation…” link for a fresh installation
That's it! OpenDocMan should now be installed.
