When someone is hurting and needs help, your struggle shouldn't be against technology. What would happen if the data was cleaned up so that it could be presented in a gentle and shareable way?

File Setup

  • Clone the project down and open using your favorite editor (VSCode is great)

After you've created your database, return to this section:

  • Browse to the database section (where variables begin with DB_)

    • Apache Port: 80
    • Nginx Port: 81
    • MySQL Port: 3306
  • Select the 'Web Server' tab
    • Change the document root to YOURPATH/community-resource-center/community-api/public
  • Start the server: 'Start Servers'
  • then 'Open WebStart page'

Create the Database

  • From the WebStart page, scroll down to 'phpMyAdmin'
  • Open 'phpMyAdmin'
  • Select 'Databases' from the top tab bar
  • Under create database, give your database a name. Example: community-api
  • and click the 'Create' button
  • Add your new values to your .env file. See instructions in File Setup above.
