LegalCase Practice Management Software on Puppy Linux
Here's a quick tutorial on how to get Legal Case Management practice management system running on puppy linux (Puppy Precise.) I've had a requirement for open source professional practice software for a while, but current options generally require ridiculously complex setup stuff. This system is no different, except for user "waton"'s brilliant XAMPP pet. With that in place, you can get this Practice Management software up and running in about 3 minutes. So here it goes:
1. Get files
Get XAMPP 1.8.1 here
Get Legal Case Management (LCM)
2. Unzip LCM.
Unzip LCM to any directory. You'll be left with a folder "legalcase"
Remember where that folder is.
3. Install XAMPP
This is easy. Click the .sfs file. It will unpack and install.
The XAMPP bootloader opens up. Click "Start" for all three
3a. For future startups, you can just type
|"/opt/lampp/lampp start" |
in a terminal. Set this code to autorun as well if you don't want to have to set
it up manually every time.
*huge thanks to Waton for the above SFS*
4. Navigate to /opt/lampp/htdocs/
Copy/paste the LCM "legalcase" folder to the above directory.
5. Set permissions
Enter the following in a terminal. Literally copy/paste. Simple.
|chmod 0777 /opt/lampp/htdocs/legalcase/log
chmod 0777 /opt/lampp/htdocs/legalcase/inc/config
chmod 0777 /opt/lampp/htdocs/legalcase/inc/data
6. Open your web browser.
7. Enter "Http://localhost/legalcase"
8. The install program for Legal Case should pop up. But don't do anything yet.
9. Open a new web browser tab
10. Type "http://localhost/" This brings you to the XAMPP home screen.
11. Look to the left of the screen (orange bar), at the very bottom.
12. A new screen pops up, with your admin options. It will be in German(?)
Look for the "language" drop down menu, and select "English" (if you're an
English speaker.) Now all menus and options will change to English.
13. In the top-left ish of the screen, click "databases"
14. New screen pops up. In "create database" enter "legalcase" and click "create"
15. On the database screen, you'll see "legalcase" as a new database. To the right of it
you'll see "Check Privileges." Click the "Check Privileges" Link
16. You'll be at a new screen. Click "Add user" at the bottom.
17. Enter username stuff. This can be whatever you want, but for test purposes, do the following:
username = legalcase
host = localhost
password = legalcase
At the bottom, for "Database for user" (might have to scroll down a bit) select
"Grant all privileges on database legalcase"
For "Global Privileges" click "Check all"
Click the "add user" at the bottom of the screen
18. Jump back to your LegalCase install tab in your web browser.
19. Select "english", click "next"
20. For the next screen "MySQL database connection", enter the following:
database address = localhost
connection login = legalcase
connection password = legalcase
21. For the next screen, select "legalcase" and click next. The database will
install and take you to the next screen.
22. The next screen is login-specific stuff for your firm. Fill it out and write
this stuff down. You'll need to remember it. Click next.
23. Click "next"
24. Next screen. Enter the login name you just created. Click "Validate"
25. Enter password for your login name. Click "validate"
Bam. Done. Now you're in LegalCase, and have a practice management system up and running. Bookmark this page in your web browser, and that's it.
Hopefully this saves a bit of time for those of you searching for how to make LegalCase work.
