GContact is a web application wich allows you to manage your address book online. You can add persons with multiples contacts (email, ICQ, phone, MSN, ...) and multiples addresses.

This application can notify next birthdays by email and you can export all yours data by excel.

Mailing-lists can also be managed by this application to send an email to a group of people.


· A web server (Apache, IIS, etc)
· PHP 4/5 with XML DOM extension (don't forget to configure SMTP in php.ini to support email notifications)
· PEAR (install extensions stuff/pear/OLE-0.5.tgz then stuff/pear/Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer-0.9.0.tgz)


1. Copy sources in a web folder called GContact (or anything else)
2. create a database in MySQL and for security reasons, I suggest your to create an MySQL user with all privileges for this database
3. run stuff/contact.sql script in MySQL to create tables
4. update database informations in inc/properties.inc.php
5. go to http://localhost/GContact/actions/createUser.php
6. fill form to create an user (note : password are hashed in database using MD5)
7. login at http://localhost/GContact
>> For dailies email notification
8. configure a timer (like cron under Linux or a planified task under Windows) to launch the PHP script actions/notifyBirthdays.php every day

Repeat step 5 to 6 to create others users.
Security note : To improve security, you can move the actions/createUser.php file to disallow anybody to create users.

What's New in This Release:

· Czech Translation from Martin Drábek.
· GContact uses now UTF-8 encoding.
