Installing phpMyCatalog

Uncompress the content of the .tar.gz file in a directory where your Apache web server has access.

  1. The document root for apache is usually /var/www/html/ so you can uncompress the software there, but you can do it where you want if you take care to allow Apache to access that location. Now you have a directory called /var/www/html/phpMyCatalog or something similar.
  2. You can use software such as webmin to change all settings in your Apache and your MySQL server to fit your specific needs.
  3. The installation directoy must have write access for everybody: you can type

    chmod 777[phpMyCatalog installation dir]

    to achieve it.

    The file initialize.sql should have the same permissions:

    chmod 777 [phpMyCatalog installation dir]/initialize.sql

    You can change permissions for directory and files as well with your fauvorite file manager.
