Web 2.0 data entry interface to REVEAL archaeological database
After opening the downloaded program you should see the screen below.
Select Next Accept the Agreement and get the following screen.
For support reasons accept the default c:\wamp
This will aid us in trouble shooting but feel free to relocate.
The following menu should appear. From this screen you can start/stop and configure your all WAMP services.
You should see screen below appear, if so the web server is working ok.
The icon should go from green to red to orange back to green
If so all appears ok. We can now configure PHP
We need several several extentions activated for RevealWeb we start by clicking the WAMP icon.
From the menu choose PHP -> PHP Extentions the following menu should appear.
We need to now enable php_curl and php_exif You may need to select them individually.
The menu should now reflect php_exif and php_curl checked off.
Now comes some manual editing. This may go away with our upcoming install kit, but for now
Open the WAMP menu icon and select PHP -> php.ini The screen below should show.
At this point a popup Notepad window should appear, we will need to edit the following entries.
Since we deal with larger files let's make our maxes at least 1G
Url post size From:
post_max_size = 8M
post_max_size = 1000M
Disk upload size From:
upload_max_filesize = 2M
upload_max_filesize = 1000M
We now need to move extension=php_exif.dll after extension=php_mbstring.dll to fix the brain dead PHP install.
extension=php_curl.dll ;extension=php_dba.dll extension=php_exif.dll ;extension=php_fileinfo.dll extension=php_gd2.dll ;extension=php_gettext.dll ;extension=php_gmp.dll ;extension=php_intl.dll ;extension=php_imap.dll ;extension=php_interbase.dll ;extension=php_ldap.dll extension=php_mbstring.dll
Should now look like this.
extension=php_curl.dll ;extension=php_dba.dll ;extension=php_fileinfo.dll extension=php_gd2.dll ;extension=php_gettext.dll ;extension=php_gmp.dll ;extension=php_intl.dll ;extension=php_imap.dll ;extension=php_interbase.dll ;extension=php_ldap.dll extension=php_mbstring.dll extension=php_exif.dll
Now restart all services
If we get the green icon back we are Ready to install RevealWeb
Since the WAMP server is working the RevealWeb initial installation involves three simple steps to get going
You will select Extract all and point it into wherever you installed WAMP in our case c:\wamp
If it's a new install just say Yes.
The Reveal install should be done. Now just install RevelWeb and import a database.
