|LFX Database of Managed Objects (DMO): User Guide for the Database of Managed Objects|
|<<< Previous||Introduction||Next >>>|
The DMO is written using the PHP language, and stores its information within a MySQL database. It is a Web application, which uses the Apache Web Server, and most often runs under Linux (but will also run under most UNIX systems, including AIX, Solaris and HP-UX.) I t also runs under Windows. The Open Source version uses XAMPP as a convenient bundle of these prerequisites, however it will run on other systems with a little work.
The DMO depends on a number of other components, which include the following:
LFXlib -- the Lanifex Library is an infrastructure library which is bundled within DMO. It provides user and group access management, plus the programming interface and various administration utilities.
PHP -- the programming language on which DMO is based
pdflib -- a library for the production of PDF documents. This library is commercially available, and requires a license fee to be paid for commercial use, like DMO.
MySQL -- a database which is available in both commercial and non-commercial forms.
Apache -- a Web server.
For ease of installation, we recommend using XAMPP, from Apache Friends, which provides a convenient bundle of the prerequisites that is easy to install and use.
