The Manual Installation is missing some steps. Please verify.

Using phpMyAdmin: create the Database "opensis"
import the schema /install/osis-4.5-schema-mysql.sql
import the procedures /install/osis-4.5-procs-mysql.sql
import the food service /modules/food_service/mfoodService.sql
copy all sql statements from install/sql.php file and import to Database "opensis"
configure the /data.php manually
$DatabaseType = 'mysql';
$DatabaseServer = 'localhost';
$DatabaseUsername = 'mysql user';
$DatabasePassword = 'mysql password';
$DatabaseName = 'opensis';
$DatabasePort = '3306';
$DefaultSyear = '2009';

login and visit the "Your Install root"/install/reset_auto_increment.php

    looks good. Everything after the create database is what the installer is now doing if the user selects to use an existing database.

     
  • It would be great to add support for "using existing database option" in the installer. For example, like the Joomla Installer does.

     
  • This will be a great option if you are using a web hosting without access to root on mySQL.

    This option has already been added and is available in the v4.5 release that is in the download section. The one thing about this option is that it will delete any existing table or view within the designated database.

     
  • The missing steps were intentionally omitted because they add steps that only consruct the "demo school"

     
  • Thank you for participating in the debugging of openSIS v4.5 we hope that with you help we can build the best SIS ever.
