Kodelearn - OpenSource Learning Management System.
Authors: Team Kodeplay
What is Kodelearn ?
Kodelearn is a web based learning management system that can be used by educational institutions such as schools, universities to manage students, teachers, course content, lectures, exams, results, attendance etc and to engage students, their parents and teachers through an easy to use interface.
What platform is Kodelearn based on ?
Kodelearn is written in PHP using the Kohana PHP Framework (v3.1)
Downloading Source Code
Download the stable source code from Kodelearn website
Or clone from github specially if you are looking to hack around
$ git clone email@example.com:kodeplay/kodelearn.git
You will also need to update the submodules by running the command
$ cd kodelearn $ git submodule init $ git submodule update
We are using a purifier module for XSS filtering Since this module also has its own submodules, you will need to updates those submodules too
$ cd modules/purifier $ git submodule update --init
After this, make the directories
MODPATH/purifier/vendor/htmlpurifierwritable by the web server.
For more info check the purifier module repo
Open the file application/bootstrap.php and find
Change the value of base_url to the one you would be using.
Database && Database Config
Create a new Mysql database and import the database schema and dump provided in the database.sql file in the kodelearn directory.
Copy the contents of the file application/config/sample-database.php to a new file database.php in the same directory and modify the 'default' configuration in it to add your database details.
Make sure you are copying the file to a new file and not renaming. Renaming will work too but it will make the git repo dirty.
Writable Files and Directories
Give write permissions to following directories
Change .htaccess file if required
Depending upon where you install kodelearn inside the document root of
your localhost or virtual host, the
.htaccess file will have
to be modified.
for eg. If your base_url (the one you entered in bootstrap.php) is of
http://myvirtualhost.com/ then there is no need to change
.htaccess file. If however, the base_url is of the form
then change the RewriteBase directory in .htaccess as follows
Open the base_url in the browser.
Following admin account is already there for you to get started quickly -
