SLOGBASE README Slogbase is a Web application for capturing avatar activity in Second Life. It's written in PHP and uses MySQL. Requirements You will need PHP 5.2+ and MySQL 5+. You'll probably want to run PHP as an Apache module, of course. Installation Untar the distribution, of course. The easiest thing to do is to create a virtual host for Apache that points that uses Slogbase's htdocs directory the document root. You don't want the FreeEnergyModules directory served up by Apache, but the application will expect it to be parallel to htdocs. You can tweak this by editing htdocs/index.php. Create a MySQL database called slogbase and give read,write,insert,update permissions to a user named php. You can use different values if you set them in FreeEnergyModules/configuration/global.php. Run build/create.sql against the new database. The command would be something like this: mysql -u root -p slogbase < build/create.sql Next, try launching the site in your browser. Click to view the dashboard and you will be prompted to log in. A default admin user should exist with the username 'admin' and password 'slogbase'. Change that user's password as soon as you log in. Next, create an account. This will be a unique identifier that will group together sensor data. You might name it after your Second Life island. You are now ready to place beacons in Second Life. Click the link on the dashboard for getting the LSL code that matches your account. From within Second Life, you should place this script on an object. The details of this process are out of scope of these instructions, but you will find lots of help on the LSL portal <http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_Portal> or elsewhere. You typically don't need to edit the LSL code, but you may wish to customize the message at the bottom. 96 meters is the maximum scan distance imposed by Second Life and we recommend using this maximum to minimize the number of sensors you need. For complete coverage of a large area, we believe it's optimal to place sensors 67m apart in all three directions. This causes overlap, but should allow for no dead spots. Of course, you may wish to have a single beacon watching a single room. There are likely uses for the application we never imagined. Now that your beacons are in place, go back to the Web application and check that data is flowing in. Optionally, if you'd like for your URLs to exclude "index.php", you can turn this on in FreeEnergyModules/configuration/global.php and then activate the dot-htaccess file by renaming it .htaccess. Depending on other settings in Apache's configuration, you may find you need to allow overrides. Save this step for last. You may wish to customize the look of the Web application. Check the FreeEnergy site <http://freeenergy.sourceforge.net/> for more information about how to do that. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Copyright 2007 Clear Ink This file is part of Slogbase.
