CodeCharge Installation / Configuration

The ProjectTRACKER is generated with the CodeCharge Studio development framework version In case you want to use the framework carefully read the CodeCharge Studio manuals.

To install the CodeCharge framework follow the installation chapter in the CodeCharge Studio manual.

Note: The mySQL driver setup of CodeCharge has a bug - please replace the file …\CodeChargeStudio3\Components\Databases\MySQL.xml with the file in the directory mySQL in the ProjectTRACKER CVS repository.

Create a new CodeCharge project, e.g. with the name tracker. Copy all PHP, HTML and Java Script files from the root directory of the ProjectTRACKER ZIP-file into the newly generated tracker directory. Copy also all *.ccp files from the ProjectTRACKER CVS repository to the tracker directory.

Setup the CodeCharge project according to the following screenshots:

Project settings - General settings

Project settings - Server and programming language settings

Project settings - Publishing settings

Note: Assuming you web server htdocs directory is located in D:\xampp\trackersql.

  • Assuming the ProjectTracker MySQL database name is tracker and a database user with name tracker has been defined.
  • It is recommended to use the Improved MySQL PHP Database Library. The generated file “db_mysqli.php” has a bug in the database unlock() function - change the code in the PHP file from @mysqli_query(“unlock tables”); to @mysqli_query($this->Link_ID, “unlock tables”);!
