- index.php has to be added in /etc/apache2/?????.conf under the list of valid index files.
- These are to be installed in /usr/share/freemed, and a virtual directory alias should be made in the Apache2 configuration files, as well as giving read perms to Apache.
- Code is annotated with an author if the primary author is other than
Jeff Buchbinder <email@example.com>
- MySQL version 5.0.20+ is required.
- Since FreeMED involves a fairly hefty codebase, php optimizing tricks, such as the bware_cache module or the Zend Optimizer should be used to minimize load times. APC is also available (apc.communityconnect.com), as well as the venerable (but largely unmaintained) Turck MMcache (http://turck-mmcache.sourceforge.net/).
Q: I get an SQL connection error. What's wrong? A: Try using the commandline clients for your SQL server. (For MySQL, this is simply "mysql -u (user) -p") If this works and you still can't log in with FreeMED, you may not have created the FreeMED database properly. You can log into the administrative console and add the database with the command "CREATE DATABASE freemed;". If this still does not allow you to connect, check your username, password, host, and table settings in lib/settings.php in your FreeMED installation. If you haven't set these properly, FreeMED will be unable to communicate with the SQL backend. If this still does not work, there is a chance that the machine or account that FreeMED is using does not have proper access rights on the SQL server. Please consult your SQL server documentation if this is the case.
