LOVD Manual

Installing LOVD

Fill in the DB manager data to install LOVD
Fill in the DB manager data to install LOVD
To install LOVD on a remote webserver, upload the LOVD directory with all the files to the webserver by, for instance, FTP. If you install LOVD on your own computer, you do not need to follow this step.

Next, point your browser to the install directory of the LOVD package.
Fill in the DB manager data to install LOVD. The DB manager will be the first user registered with LOVD and will be responsible for creating new users (both managers and curators) in the system. If you are the only user in this LOVD installation, you do not need to create new accounts.

The install lock is checked by default. This will make it impossible to directly uninstall LOVD from the system. If you leave this option unchecked, anyone with the DB manager password can remove the entire LOVD installation from the database.

Information The DB manager is the absolute owner of the LOVD installation. Not only is he the only one that can uninstall LOVD from the database using the uninstaller, but he/she will also be able to create, edit or delete all user accounts in the system and (depending on the settings) receive submission and registration notifications.

If the installation was successful, you will be forwarded to the configuration area. Because there are no genes set up in the system yet, you will be sent to the 'Create database' form. On how to create your first gene database, see creating new genes.
