Install Guide

Please remember to backup your database regularly.

  1. Unzip & Upload these files to your webserver.
  2. Edit "./settings/config.php"
  3. Make a backup of your database ;)
  4. Import the .sql files inside "./www/sql_update/" into your MySql database (I placed mine in the aurora database)

Config.php (Change the basic settings, to match your own)

##################### System #########################

// Default StartPoint for Map
$mapstartX = 1000;
$mapstartY = 1000;

DatabaseInfo.php (Change the basic settings, to match your own)

##################### Database ########################
// Your Hostname here:
// Your Databasename here:
// Your Username from Database here:
// Your Database Password here:

Install WebUI via console

  1. Start Aurora.Server.exe (if you want to run in Grid mode) or Aurora.exe (if you want to run in StandAlone mode)
  2. Put into the console 'compile module gui' and browse to the AuroraWebUI directory in your Aurora-WebAPI download and open the file.
  3. Follow the instructions on-screen and it will compile and install your module and you are all done with setup.

Install WebUI manually

  1. copy the AuroraWebUI directory into your ~/Aurora-Sim/addon-modules/ directory
  2. Run runprebuild.bat


For grid mode (running Aurora.Server.exe)

Copy AuroraService/WebAPI.ini to your ~/Aurora-Sim/bin/AuroraServerConfiguration/Modules directory

For standalone mode (just running Aurora.exe)

Copy AuroraService/WebAPI.ini to your ~/Aurora-Sim/bin/Configuration/Modules directory

Admin Panel

The Admin Panel is located at:

To add your user as an Admin Panel User: Start Aurora (Aurora.Server in grid mode) and after it has started, type

webui add user

and fill in the information that is asked for.

The user will now be able to use the Admin Panel as given above

Enjoy Aurora WebUI

To remove a user from the Admin Panel: Start Aurora (Aurora.Server in grid mode) and after it has started, type

webui remove user

and fill in the information that is asked for.

The user will now not be able to use the Admin Panel

Choose avatar

To choose a avatar on registration you have to make some avatar archives

NOTE: I have only tested this with database archives and not file archives. To save a archive in the database you must give it a name ending with ".database"

Note: When displaying textures from the texture server they will be resized to 128x128 and at the bottom will be writen the grid nickname

  1. Dress a avatar up like you want it to look
  2. Take a picture of it and upload this to the grid
  3. in the console of the grid server issue this command
save avatar archive <First> <Last> <Filename> <FolderNameToSaveInto> [<SnapshotUUID>] [<Public>]


save avatar archive Skidz Tweak EvilOverlord.database / 00000-0000-0000-0000-00000 1

NOTE: Only public ones will be listed on the website

Trouble Shooting

  • Don't forget to set up your php.ini mail

Errors with viewing or logging users into WebUI (not admin users)

  • Make sure that an Aurora.Addon.WebUI.dll is in the bin/ folder of the place that are you running Aurora (or Aurora.Server) from.

Page editor will not load in Administrator Section.

  • While testing on we resolved this issue by creating a .htaccess file in the root of your website with the following code
        RewriteEngine On  
        RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$  
        RewriteRule (.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

Says unknown error, or something when wrong right after I turned on opensim..

oh.. one thing to note.. opensim seems to have a bug.. when making calls to the handler.. the first one always fails after you start opensim It actually runs.. but.. the data is never returned to the php.. but.. after that first.. seems to work fine.. I have not tried to debug this yet I should add that in the install.. lol

I get the following message trying to load opensimwi in my web browser:

query("SELECT password FROM ".C_ADMIN_TBL." WHERE password='$_SESSION[ADMINUID]'");
list($admpass) = $DbLink->next_record();
    $ADMINCHECK = $admpass;
    $ADMINCHECK = "454";
    $pass = $_POST[password];
    $passcheck = md5(md5($pass) . ":" );
    $DbLink->query("SELECT username,password FROM ".C_ADMIN_TBL." WHERE username='$_POST[username]'");
    list($adminname,$adminpass) = $DbLink->next_record();
    if($adminpass == $passcheck){
        $_SESSION[ADMINUID] = $adminpass;
    echo "";


Your PHP is not configured to use short tags or asp style, to fix the problem edit your php.ini and locate the following lines:

short_open_tag = Off

; Allow ASP-style <% %> tags.
asp_tags = Off

Change to

short_open_tag = On

; Allow ASP-style <% %> tags.
asp_tags = On

After you save your php.ini restart apache and you should be ok now.

I get the following message trying to load opensimwi in my web browser:

Notice: Use of undefined constant ......


Your PHP is not configured to handle errors properly, to fix the problem edit your php.ini and locate the following lines:

error_reporting = E_ALL 

Change to

error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE
