System Requirements:??? PHP >= 4.3.3

1. DOWNLOAD and extract the BibAdmin archive
The files are in .tar.gz format and can be extracted using most compression tools. On a typical Unix command line, use:
tar -zxvf bibadmin-x.x.tar.gz
This will create a new directory bibadmin-x.x/ containing all files and directories. Move the contents of that directory into a directory within your web server's document root or your public HTML directory:
mv bibadmin-x.x/* /var/www/html
2. CREATE THE BibAdmin DATABASE
This step is only necessary if you don't already have a database set-up (e.g. by your host). If you control your databases through a web-based control panel, check its documentation for creating databases, as the following instructions are for the command-line only.
These instructions are for MySQL. In the following examples, 'db_user' is an example MySQL user which has the CREATE and GRANT privileges. Use the appropriate user name for your system ('root' for example).
First, you must create a new database for your BibAdmin site (here, 'biblio' is the name of the new database):
mysqladmin -u db_user -p create biblio
MySQL will prompt for the 'db_user' database password and then create the initial database files. Next you must login and set the access database rights:
mysql -u db_user -p
Again, you will be asked for the 'db_user' database password. At the MySQL prompt, enter following command:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON biblio.*
TO www_user@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
'biblio' is the name of your database
'www_user@localhost' is the username of your webserver MySQL account
'password' is the password required to log in as the MySQL user
If successful, MySQL will reply with:
Query OK, 0 rows affected
To activate the new permissions you must enter the command:
and then enter 'q' to exit MySQL.
