- Download the entire project, unzip/untar it and upload to your server
- Create a MySQL database and user
- Open install.php in your browser
- Put in your MySQL information
- Create the first user
- Add nodes
In order to take full advantage of phpMyBitcoin you will need to run a Bitcoin client that supports the listgenerated and listtransactions methods, and you must be able to connect to the node's JSON-RPC interface.
I've created a custom version of Bitcoin that includes patches for listgenerated, listtransactions and binds the JSON-RPC interface to all IPs instead of just the loopback. You can find the source code here:
I also have pre-compiled binaries for Linux available:
Using The Vanilla Bitcoin Client
If you would like to use phpMyBitcoin but don't want to compile or use a modified client, you will need to use a relay of some kind so that phpMyBitcoin can access the JSON-RPC interface.
Please note: Unless you have compiled your Linux kernel with IP_NF_NAT_LOCAL you will not be able to use iptables to redirect requests to the loopback interface.
If the remote server you are running Bitcoin on has a webserver with PHP capabilites you can use the relay.php script (found in the scripts folder) to relay connections to the loopback interface. Setup is very simpile, just drop the relay.php script somewhere accessible from the internet. When adding the node to phpMyBitcoin if your relay.php script is accessible at "http://somesite.com/relay.php" your settings will be:
Hostname: somesite.com Port: 80 URI: relay.php
