BW-Rox - configuration

  1. Make a new empty folder /data in the "c:/<path>/rox"
  2. In the parent directory find "rox_local.example.ini", adapt it to your needs and save as "rox_local.ini". Most notably is in the box below.
dsn = "mysql:host=localhost;dbname=<dbname>"
user = "<username>"
password = "<password>"

baseuri = "http://name"

avoid_https = true
skip_password_check = true

In [db], fill out the details of your local database.
In [env] fill out the path to rox. If you made a virtual host, then the name that you defined there, goes here.
The [development] part is optional but will save you a lot of useless work (avoid_https saves you the security warnings when logging in, and skip_password_check makes logins possible without typing the password)

  1. Typing the ServerName you defined in vhosts into your browser's adressbar should give you a basically working BW-page. Play a bit around to see if everything works before you proceed.

At this point it is normal if sending e-mails doesn't work (signup, notifications, messages), see next section for more information.

Tip: if something doesn't work, you can try the following sources to find out what is wrong:

  • Point your browser to "http://<name>/diagnostics.php"
  • The content of the file /error.log
  • The content of the file /htdocs/exception.log
