Now edit ZendCore to tell it to use MySQL. We will do this manually by editing the php.ini file. Go to an AS/400 command line and issue the command:
Place a 5 in the option column at ETC and Press Enter.
Place a 2 in the option column at PHP.INI and Press Enter.
Use the search command:
to find the lines:
It is possible that they are already un-commented (without a leading semicolon). If not, remove the leading semicolon resulting in:
Save with F2 and exit with F3.
Obtain the latest stable version of Mantis from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=14963&package_id=166159 Download the file mantis-1.0.6.tar.gz to a PC folder. Since the file is “GZIPPED”, the easiest thing to do is use WinZip on a Windoze box to unzip (untar) the distribution file.
Unzip gz file to a known folder on your PC. Use a real FTP program like WS-FTP or CuteFTP (free) to transfer the folder and all subfolders and files to a folder on the AS/400. We suggest you place the contents in the default http documents folder in the root file system of the IFS:
where xxx is either the default folder name
mantis-1.0.6 (ugly to key in) or a more convenient name like
issues. For this example we will use the folder
mm standing for Mantis on MySQL.
Start the install process by using your browser to run the index.php in the root folder of the Mantis software:
Mantis will automatically detect that it is not yet installed, as this is the same file that is used to run the software also. Provide the userIDs and passwords you configured for MySQL in the previous steps.
The Mantis system uses two configuration files. The default file config_defaults_inc.php is not to be modified. All modifications to the configuration go into config_inc.php, which is read AFTER config_defaults_inc.php, and therefore overrides it. Following are some setting that should be set in config_inc.php, most of them will need to be added:
# leave these next three the same $g_hostname = 'localhost'; $g_db_type = 'mysql'; $g_database_name = 'bugtracker';
# your database userid goes here $g_db_username = 'root'; # your password goes here $g_db_password = 'secretpassword';
# Used to link to manual for User Documentation. # Updated URL for the Mantis online docs $g_manual_url = 'http://www.mantisbt.org/manual/index.php/';
# String used to generate the confirm_hash for the 'lost password' feature and captcha code for 'signup' # ATTENTION: CHANGE IT TO WHATEVER VALUE YOU PREFER $g_password_confirm_hash_magic_string = 'cornedbeefhash';
# these next two require you to upload the file arial.ttf from your PC to a folder you create # absolute path (with trailing slash!) to folder which contains your TrueType-Font files # used to create the captcha image and since 0.19.3 for the Relationship Graphs $g_system_font_folder = './fonts/'; # font name used to create the captcha image. i.e. arial.ttf # (the font file has to exist in the system_font_folder) $g_font_per_captcha = 'arial.ttf';
# --- email variables ------------- $g_administrator_email = 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; $g_webmaster_email = 'email@example.com';
# the 'From: ' field in emails $g_from_email = 'firstname.lastname@example.org';
# the return address for bounced mail $g_return_path_email = 'email@example.com';
# allow email notification # note that if this is disabled, sign-up and password reset messages will # not be sent. $g_enable_email_notification = ON;
# --- sitewide variables ---------- $g_window_title = 'Mantis - i5 MySQL'; # browser window title $g_page_title = 'Mantis - i5 MySQL'; # title at top of html page (empty by default, since there is a logo now)
# FTP settings, used if $g_file_upload_method = FTP $g_file_upload_ftp_server = '184.108.40.206'; $g_file_upload_ftp_user = 'readwriteuser'; $g_file_upload_ftp_pass = 'readwritepass';
# Files that are allowed or not allowed. Separate items by commas. # eg. 'php,html,java,exe,pl' # if $g_allowed_files is filled in NO other file types will be allowed. # $g_disallowed_files takes precedence over $g_allowed_files $g_allowed_files = ''; $g_disallowed_files = 'php,pl,java';
# --- cookie prefix --------------- # set this to a unique identifier. No spaces. $g_cookie_prefix = 'MANTISi5MySQL';
