YaBook {%TITLE%}


  • Any kind of operating system. YaBook has been tested on both Linux and Windows.
  • Apache webserver ( YaBook works on both Apache 1.3.xx or 2.0.x. On Windows, it might work on IIS as well, but currently we are not doing any testing on it.
  • One of the following database systems:
  • PHP 5 or later version. PHP 4.3.x won't work! Currently YaBook runs fine under PHP 5.0.0RC2. We do not support any lower versions.
  • Warning: ZendEngine2 (PHP 5) itself is under development too and might cause strange side effects, errors or segmentation faults.
  • of course all of it working together ... and a HTML-browser

For your information: the YaBook demonstration we are using currently is actually served by a PHP {%PHP_VERSION%} and ZendEngine {%ZEND_VERSION%} backend.

Quick Install

Installation of YaBook is EASY! There is not even an installation script required to run, because YaBook automatically detects a new installation. The current installation instructions are located in your YaBook distribution: /private/doc/INSTALL.

[1] Unzip the distribution and make sure you keep the file-structure

[2] Edit and enter your database information
    At least, change the following settings:
    $conf['dsn'] = array(
        'username' => 'xxxxxxxx',
        'password' => 'xxxxxxxx',
        'database' => 'xxxxxxxx'

[3] Make the following directory writable:
    /private/log     chmod 777
    If your webserver runs under the same group as your user, chmod 660
    might as well do it.

[4] Run YaBook!
    That's it, you won't need any further install instructions, as
    YaBook does automatically detect a new installation and creates
    the needed tables in your database. Default configuration is good
    in most cases.
    Run index.php from your browser and enjoy YaBook!

[5] To configure your new installation, please log-in with the default
    admin user:
    username= admin
    password= 1234
    You should then enter the "User Administration" (link on top of page).
    Either create your own user(s) and delete the default admin user or 
    at least change his password.
