Step 1: Install this XAMPP from https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html
Step 2: Copy/extract Open Enventory files into C://XAMPP/htdocs/ . Write down the folder name because this will be the web address. In this case the folder is named ‘enventory’
Step 3: Start XAMPP and start Apache and MySQL
Step 4: setting up root password for MySQL. This changes with XAMPP version so consult this FAQ for specific details.
Step 5: Change php.ini content by clicking on Config button on the same row with Apache on XAMPP panel to match the following:
error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_WARNING & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED (otherwise some warnings being displayed will break the functionality)
upload_max_filesize=64M # (or higher)
post_max_size=64M # (or higher)
If still warnings appear in the generated HTML code (breaking open enventory), you should set:
display_errors=Off # (especially on PHP 7+)
Step 6: Change my.cnf (or my.ini) content by clicking on Config button on the same row with MySQL on XAMPP panel to match the following under
[mysqld]sql_mode = NO_ZERO_IN_DATE,NO_ZERO_DATE,ERROR_FOR_DIVISION_BY_ZERO,NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER,NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTIONmax_allowed_packet = 64M # (or higher)innodb_buffer_pool_size = 1024M # to about 50% of the available memoryinnodb_log_file_size = 128M # to about 10% of the available memory
Step 7: Restart both Apache and MySQL service by clicking on Stop and then Start for each service.
Step 8: Open this link in your web browser: http://localhost/enventory/ and log in with the following info:
"Database": <database-name> "database-name" can be whatever you choose but should not have blank space and unique; I suggest short name is better as well.
"Username": root (It has to be the exact word "root" for this set up first)
"Password": the root password that we set in the step above
Then click on "Inventory".
Step 9: If successful, it will bring up something similar to this page:
