mrbs Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies mrbs-1.9.4.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
Meeting Room Booking System

The Meeting Room Booking System (MRBS) is a PHP-based application for
booking meeting rooms (surprisingly!). I got annoyed with the piles of books
which were being used to book meetings. They were slow, hard to edit and only
at the reception desk. I thought that a nice web-based system would be much

Some parts of this are based on WebCalender 0.9.4 by Craig Knudsen
( but there is now very little
which is similar. There are fundamental design goal differences between
WebCalendar and MRBS - WC is for individuals, MRBS is for meeting rooms.

To Use
See the INSTALL file for installation instructions.

Once it's installed try going to http://yourhost/mrbs/

If you're using the default authentication type ('db') the first thing you'll
be prompted to do is to create an admin user.  Once you've done that you'll
need to login using the credentials you've just specified.

Once you have logged in as an administrator you can click on "Rooms" and
create first an "Area", and then a "Room" within that area.

There are other ways to configure authentication in MRBS, see the
file AUTHENTICATION for a more complete description.

It should be pretty easy to adjust it to your corporate colours - you can
modify the themes under "Themes" or (preferably) copy an existing theme
to a new directory and modify the new theme.
