opendocman 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 opendocman-1.4.4-release.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Installing to a web server (Automatic)

  1. Untar/Unzip files into any dir in your web server document home folder

  2. Create a MySQL database/username/password

  3. Make a directory for the uploaded documents to be stored that is accessible to the web server but not available by browsing. Ensure the permissions are correct on this folder to allow for the web server to write to it. Refer to the help text in the installer for more information.

    ex. $>mkdir /var/www/document_repository
