Dear iHRIS Manage Malawi contributers and Testers,

Welcome to the crusade!

First, install Bazaar on your computer, if you have not done so. To install bazaar issue this commands:

sudo apt-get install bzr

Lets go:

(1) Download "ihris-suite-4.1.6.tar.bz2" then unzip it as per the guideline here:
sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/iHRIS/lib/4.1.6
sudo ln -s /var/lib/iHRIS/lib/4.1.6 /var/lib/iHRIS/lib/4.1
cd /var/lib/iHRIS/lib/4.1.6
sudo wget http://launchpad.net/i2ce/4.1/4.1.6/+download/ihris-suite-4.1.6.tar.bz2
sudo tar -xjf ihris-suite-4.1.6.tar.bz2

(2) create malawi site as floows
change directory to iHRIS folder
that is

cd /var/lib/iHRIS/

then download the customisation of ihris-manage-malawi as follows:

sudo su
bzr branch lp:ihris-manage-malawi

This command will create a folder here


(3) make your site to be available

>>>>>Create your mysql database<<<<<

gedit /var/lib/iHRIS/ihris-manage-malawi/4.1/pages/config.values.php

Then configure the file appropriately, then make a symbolic link as follows:

ln -s /var/lib/iHRIS/ihris-manage-malawi/4.1/pages /var/www/manage

Almost done, but emember to make pretty urls cosmetics:

cp /var/www/manage/htaccess.TEMPLATE /var/www/manage/.htaccess
gedit /var/www/manage/.htaccess

Done for now!

(4) How to get updated source code from the iHRIS Malawi Developers Team?

cd /var/lib/iHRIS/ihris-manage-malawi/4.1

then issue the command:

 bzr update

(5) How can you contribute to iHRIS Malawi Developers Team?
- Test the system
- update source codes then push to the Launchpad. To do this, you need to register your computer's SSH-Key and introduce yourself to Bazaar.

All the best
