Enabling and Configuring Multi-Signature Mode

This mode allows multiple people to sign a PDF, but it requires that the PDFs be stored on the server.

It is not mandatory to enable this mode for the application to work; it is an option.

Create the config/config.ini file

cp config/config.ini{.example,}

In the config/config.ini file, configure the PDF_STORAGE_PATH variable with the path where uploaded PDF files can be stored:


Create this folder:

mkdir /path/to/folder

The web server should have write permissions on this folder.

For example, for Apache:

chown www-data /path/to/folder/to/store/pdf

Disabling the Organize Mode

To disable the Organize mode, add DISABLE_ORGANIZATION=true to the config/config.ini file.

Hiding or Modifying the Demo PDF Link

To hide the demo PDF link, add PDF_DEMO_LINK=false to the config/config.ini file.

Default Fields for Metadata Editing

In the config/config.ini file, you can add as many fields as you want with the HTML input type (text, date, number, email, etc.) that will be preloaded for each PDF.

METADATA_DEFAULT_FIELDS[field1].type = "text"
METADATA_DEFAULT_FIELDS[field2].type = "text"
METADATA_DEFAULT_FIELDS[field3].type = "date"
METADATA_DEFAULT_FIELDS[field4].type = "number"
