Hi all,

I'm a bit of a luddite when it comes to coding. I downloaded the OBBLM files and try to open the install php file, but the install won't start. What program should I be using to start the installation process?

Thanks!

you should open that in a web browser eg (www.yourhost/install.php) . you should also have php and mysql running and the permissions needed to create a new table in the database and well as read/write on that php file.

Thank you for the info. Is there someplace I can look to help me understand what that all means?

What version are you installing?

If it's the naflm file from the NAF release page it comes with instructions - I would recommend installing that, as it's basically managed entirely from the front end.

It's the most recent file from OBBLM. My issue is that I can't even get the install procedure to start. I try to open the install.php file with Internet Explorer and nothing happens.

Where did you get it from? What are you trying to install it on? Can you post a screenshot of your root file structure please?

You need to put it on a web server with PHP and a mySQL data base installed.

Either you get some webspace from any provider. MercuryVPS offers the package preinstalled -i would recommend that or NAF hosting when you lack the experience- or you get it somewhere and admin it yourself.
Or you run it locally on your PC for test purpose (XAMPP is a good package that comes with everything required), but then you can only access it from you computer/LAN.

Oh, I see now. I was thinking this was more like a standard program or app. It's a setup for a website. Seems it won't work for my application unless I learn to build websites. Thanks for the info guys.
