Getting started with phpDiveLog
While phpDiveLog is a web-based application, it must be installed on GNU/Linux distributions using the standard GNU make builder. You can’t just simply drop the files to an web server and install the software via a web browser.
Therefore, after downloading the latest release of the application on your personal computer, unpack the archive, open a Terminal app, navigate to the location where you’ve extracted the archive file (e.g. cd /home/softpedia/phpdivelog-0.4.6) and run the ‘sudo make install’ command.
We strongly recommend reading the install.txt file from the ‘install’ folder to learn how to install phpDiveLog in a custom directory, as well as how to uninstall it or configure various internal components.
Being a web app, phpDiveLog requires a web server that supports PHP, such as Apache. Runtime dependencies include PHP 5.2 or later (as a loadable module for Apache). Optional requirements include TCPDF (PHP PDF API) for PDF support with PDL 0.3.5 or higher, as well as the php5-curl module for language negotiated help pages.
