Description

We can make the install of bw-rox on localhost even easier, by introducing some nice messages when things are not in place.

  • check if mod_rewrite is switched on, and if not, show some useful instructions (specific to your server environment and OS)
  • check if the htdocs/.htaccess is well-configured, and if not, show some useful instructions.
  • check if rox_local.ini is well-configured, and if not, show some useful instructions (this is partly done already).
  • check if the database connection works, and if not, show some useful instructions.

The places to implement all this are "htdocs/index.php" and the files in "roxlauncher/*.php". Eventually we could even factor out some of this into additional classes.

In future we might also think of a web interface for setting up "rox_local.ini". But for now, some nice instructions will already be a great help.
