The statement of npotthast has been a bit too optimistic, i'm afraid. We are actually planning the model behind documentation of patch panels, converters and cables. And there will be a release in 2009...
The timeframe for our next release (version 0.9.1) is a little bit dynamic, but we have set us a goal to release in the next days/weeks. So this version would be best to use, since our svn-version is surely up to date but is also most of the time work-in-progress.
Just installed and got it semi-working under Windows, I am a newbie and hope this helps.
1)Install EasyPHP-2.0b1 which has Apache, MySql, PHP all in one.
2)Unzipped i-doit_v09.zip to C:, rename directory from i-doit_v09 to idoit. (Or where/what ever you like, I like it @ root and short file name for sanity's sake.)
3)Create Alias under easpyphp, (make sure easy php is has started), applet e next to clock, right click on it, administration, under apache, click add, type in name idoit (or whatever), select patch c:\idoit (or whatever you have renamed the content directory to). and default settings, this is where you can allow/deny users. I didn't change anything here for now since I am doing testing, so I can only access on local machine.), OK.
4)Start browser of your choice (I used firefox), tyep in http://127.0.0.1/idoit/ or whatever you have alias the site to. This will bring you to the guided install menu. You should get an all OK. If not you have to go back and figure out which component didn't install properly.
Click Next, WWW directory = /idoit/ (or whatever your path is), Scroll down and select your choice of File, Temp and Object Image Directory. (I tried clicking on the file folder to browse but it filebrowser pops up with code so I just keyed in the path myself), so c:\idoit\file, c:\idoit\temp; c:\idoit\images (I created the file directory, temp and image already there)
Click Next, setup Database mysql. mySQL Client = C:\PROGRA~1\EASYPH~1.0B1\mysql\bin\mysql.exe. Use short file path, there is a bug if you put spaces in your path. Leave username/password for both i-doIT and root as is (I think I might have type in i-doIT/i-doIT and left root then password/blank). Default root password for easyphp mysql root account is root/blank. System Database Name: idoit (or whatever you like), Mandate Database Name: idoit (I kept it the same, not sure what the difference is). Mandant title I used company name.
Click next, select any theme (only 2) and leave the rest unless you really need to setup proxy and web/soap for integration with other apps?? Not sure.
Click Next and it should install.
Hope this helps… will try to drop DB and install again to confirm.
Currently it's only compatible with mySQL, though we hardly use mySQL-specific statements, hence it shouldn't be a problem to implement a database abstraction layer with mySQL and postgreSQL as interfaces. But do not count on this feature after version 1.0. We focus on completing help and documentation in english language, the framework and important files (INSTALL, UPDATE) are in english. We are currently working on the documentation, which will be in german initially.
I want translate i-doit to polish but I know only english language. When will be i-doit in english ?
i-doIT version 0.9 will be completely translated in english when it is released. In the first step i-doIT will be released in german and english only but we appreciate everyone who helps us translating it to other languages.
Also, for translating i-doIT there is no need for programming-abilities, we have developed an easy to use interface for the database.
