Version 3.2.0
Released June 11, 2015
 
Version 3.9.1 (BETA)
Released August 25, 2016
 

PLEASE NOTE: If you are new to CWIS, you may want to consider starting with version 3.9.1. Although it is a beta release, the software has been in production use on some sites for months, and will provide an easier path going forward.

Requirements

CWIS 3.2.0 requires a web server with PHP 5.2.1 and MySQL 5.0 or later. PHP must be installed with MySQL and GD support.

CWIS 3.9.1 requires a web server with PHP 5.4.0 and MySQL 5.0 or later. PHP must be installed with MySQL and GD support.

CWIS is currently being developed with Apache 2.2.15, PHP 5.4.45, and MySQL 5.5.49 on CentOS Linux and OS X. It should work with earlier version of Apache, but these specific versions (or later versions) of Apache, PHP, and MySQL are recommended.

Installation

Before beginning installation of CWIS, you should have these pieces of information:

  • the directory (on the web server) where the software is to be installed,
  • the URL (web address) that will be used to reach this directory,
  • the host name of the system running your MySQL database server (often the same as your web server),
  • the user name and password for logging into that MySQL server, and
  • the name of the database on that MySQL server to use when storing CWIS data.

Once you have the above information and have downloaded the CWIS distribution file (CWIS-3.2.0.zip), unpack that file, upload the unpacked files and directories to your web server, and make sure that the directory structure inside the zip file is preserved and that the directory you uploaded to and the following subdirectories under it are writable by the web server:

include
tmp
local/logs
local/data

After you have the files uploaded and directories writable, begin the install by using your web browser to go to the URL:

http://mysite.com/installcwis.php

where http://mysite.com is the base address of the new CWIS site on your web server. This should bring up a web page titled CWIS Installation. You'll then enter the information you gathered above into the web page that comes up and click on the "Begin Installation" button.

If everything checks out, the installation should take less than 30 seconds, after which a link to your new CWIS site will be displayed, and you can go to the new site and log in with the user name and password you specified on the installation page.

Upgrading

CWIS 3.2.0 can be used to upgrade sites running CWIS or SPT 1.4.0 or later. If you are running an earlier version of CWIS or SPT you'll need to first upgrade to 1.4.0 (available below) and then to 3.2.0.

When upgrading a live site, please first back up your CWIS directory and database if at all possible. Significant effort is made to test each version before it is released, but web server environments vary widely and it's good to have a backup copy in case of difficulty.

To upgrade, download the CWIS distribution file (CWIS-3.2.0.zip), unpack that file, and upload the unpacked files and directories to the CWIS directory on your web server, overwriting the existing files from the previous CWIS version.

After you have the files uploaded, run the upgrade by using your web browser to go to the URL:

http://mysite.com/installcwis.php

where http://mysite.com is the base address of the existing CWIS site on your web server. This should bring up a web page titled CWIS Installation and begin the upgrade process

If everything checks out, the upgrade should take less than 30 seconds, after which a link to your new CWIS site will be displayed, and you can go to the new site and log in.

Checksums

If you want to make sure that the file downloaded correctly, the MD5 checksum values for the files (obtainable on OS X systems with the md5command, and on most Linux systems with the md5sum command) are as follows:

Version 3.2.0 Checksum Value

CWIS-3.2.0.zip     ab185c84b2bbd2df478fe96445f8be86

Version 3.9.1 Checksum Value

CWIS-3.9.1.zip     4d568ce3783197b9d0d86127ae884aba

If you're not sure how to use the md5or md5sumcommand, please consult your system administrator or local OS X or Linux guru. Thanks for your interest in CWIS. We're eagerly looking forward to your feedback!

(CWIS version numbering jumped from 1.1.1 to 1.3.0 to sychronize it with SPT version numbers.)

Upgrading to 1.4.0

If you are running a version of CWIS or SPT earlier than 1.4.0, you'll need to first upgrade to 1.4.0 and then to the latest version of CWIS. These instructions are for upgrading a pre-1.4.0 installation to 1.4.0.

Please note that upgrading to 1.4.0 requires a shell (command line) login to your web server (as did installing pre-1.4.0 versions).

Once you have downloaded the two CWIS distribution files (cwisinstall-1.4.0 and cwis-1.4.0.tgz, available above), place those files in a directory on your web server and begin the installation with the command:

./cwisinstall-1.4.0

(Note: After downloading the distribution files you may need to make the install script executable with the command:

chmod a+x cwisinstall*

If you're not sure what this command means, try the preceding command to start the installation and consult your system administrator if you get an error message like "Permission denied.")

The install script will print out various progress messages, and then direct you to a web page where you can complete the installation.
