Journey: An online survey application Copyright (C) 2006-2011 Nat Budin WELCOME TO JOURNEY Journey is an online survey application. It provides an AJAX-based graphical interface for creating surveys, and lets people respond to them via the web. Journey also provides tools for analyzing the responses to your surveys. INSTALLATION Journey is a Ruby on Rails application, and uses standard Rails deployment techniques. We have tested Journey using a MySQL database backend; theoretically, it should work with other databases, but this is not officially supported. Briefly, the procedure for deploying Journey is: 1) Write a config/database.yml file. You'll need to configure at least a development or production database (depending on the type of environment you're deploying to), and you'll also need to specify a "users" database. This can be the same as your main Journey database, or a different one. If you want to share users and roles between different ae_users-based applications, you'll probably want to use a separate database. 2) Make sure you have the gems installed that Journey needs. To do this, simply run "rake gems:install" as root, and Rails will find and install the gems it needs. 3) Run "git submodule update --init" in the application root, in order to pull in the ae_users plugin. 4) Run "rake db:migrate" to create the Journey tables. If you're using a production database, this should be "rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production" instead. 5) Create the database tables needed by the ae_users plugin. (See the plugin docs for details.) 6) Start the Journey application server. Go to the front page using a web browser and verify that it works. 7) Sign up for an initial user account. (Click the "Sign up" link in the upper right corner.) 8) Shut down Journey temporarily, and give yourself universal admin privileges in the database. To do this, insert a row into the "permissions" table. All you need to fill in is the "person_id" column using the ID from the ae_users "people" table - leave all the other columns as NULL. 9) Start up Journey again. You should now be an administrator.
