Installation Overview


Hints


Installing Roster

Pre-install

(Figure 'phpMyAdmin Create Database')
(Figure 'phpMyAdmin Database Created')
Create, or have ready a MySQL database that WoWRoster can use.
It should already have a username and password assigned to it.

Step 1

Making sure to keep the directory structure intact, move the unzipped files to a web-accessible directory.

Step 2

All files and directories should be owned by your webserver's user/group
(Example: chown apache.apache -R *).
All .php files should be readable/executable

$ chmod a+rx -R *.php

Step 3

If you want the installation script to automatically set up your conf.php file for you, it should be readable/writeable

Note: The installer will attempt to do this for you, but should an error occurr, you may need to do this manually:

$ chmod 666 conf.php

Step 4

Browse to www.[domain].com/roster/install.php
(Figure 'WoWRoster Install Step 1')

You should be presented with a page describing your server's settings and information.
Once you are sure that your server meets WoWRoster's requirements, you can click the [ Start Install ] button.

On this step, you may be presented with information

Step 4-1

(Figure 'WoWRoster Install Step 2')

Full path to the install script       Enter this in "Roster URL Path"
'www.[domain].com/user/roster'          '/user/roster'
'www.[domain].com/roster'               '/roster'
'www.[domain].com'                      ''
Step 4-2

(Figure 'WoWRoster Install Step 3')

Step 5

After you're satisfied with the values for the above fields, click the button to proceed.
The installer will automatically fill your conf.php file.
(Figure 'WoWRoster Install Step 4')

If the creation of conf.php failed, the installer will give you the option to download this file, then you can upload it to your web server.

You will be notified if your passwords didn't match (Figure 'WoWRoster Install Step 4b'), and it will be reset to a default of "admin"
You can change this later by going to Roster Config.

Navigate to Roster Control Panel, this is where you can configure all aspects of WoWRoster.
After that, you're ready to begin using WoWRoster.

You should now have a functional installation of WoWRoster.
Remove the files install.php, upgrade.php and the install/ folder for extra security.


Upgrading Roster

As always, we recommend a fresh install, in a clean folder, and a clean database.
But for those that absolutely need to upgrade, we have worked really hard for you on the upgrade script.

Special Instructions for 1.6.0 to 1.7.x

This information is specific on upgrading from Roster 1.6.0 to 1.7.x

Back up your conf.php file!
WoWRoster 1.7.x DOES have a new conf.php file, so you should back it up!
The new conf.php file should be automatically be upgraded for you.
If this fails, the upgrader will give you the option to download this file, then you can upload it to your web server.

Access www.[domain].com/roster/upgrade.php
YOU MUST go to www.[domain].com/roster/upgrade.php
If you go to any other page, it WILL display "Detected Invalid Access..."

Make sure you visit the Roster Config page
You will need to visit this page as the upgrader only upgrade certain important fields from version 1.6.0

General Instructions

Step 1

BACK UP YOUR DATABASE.


This cannot be stressed enough.


You should consider using phpMyAdmin (http://www.phpmyadmin.net)
This can use 'Completed Inserts' that will be necessary if you need to restore the database.

Step 2

Seriously, go back up your database since you skipped step 1.

Step 3

Back up your conf.php file.
Usually we would never touch this file during an upgrade...but just in case something weird happens

Step 4

Unzip the new WoWRoster version.
Overwrite ALL files!
It's best to delete everything in the roster folder EXCEPT! your conf.php file.

Step 5

Access www.[domain].com/roster/upgrade.php

Select the version you're upgrading from.
The script will perform all the necessary changes to upgrade from the version you selected to the newest version.

Step 6

Navigate to Roster Config, this is where you can configure all aspects of WoWRoster.

Remove the files install.php, upgrade.php and the install/ folder for extra security.


Re-Installing Roster

Perhaps there has been some weird problem that you cannot solve
Such as database corruption, updating errors, data errors, etc...

You can try re-installing Roster

Pre re-install

Make sure you have the install directory and install.php in your roster folder on your web server

Step 1

Delete conf.php from the roster directory

Step 2

Drop all `roster_` tables in the database you created for Roster
Note: `roster_` may be different if you changed the table prefix

You can also just drop the database you created for Roster
If you didn't create a new database for Roster, use the first method for removing the tables

Step 3

Run install.php


Un-Installing Roster

First of all, we'd like to thank you for trying our software and hope it was a good experiance for you
Sometimes Roster doesn't work on all servers although we try our best to improve this aspect

Step 1

Remove/delete the roster directory from your webserver

Step 2

Drop all `roster_` tables in the database you created for Roster
Note: `roster_` may be different if you changed the table prefix

You can also just drop the database you created for Roster
If you didn't create a new database for Roster, use the first method for removing the tables
