Install Dédalo

  1. Download Dédalo and copy to the httpdocs of web server

  2. Create a DB in PostgreSQL and name it to: dedalo_xx (you can change the xx with your own name).

  3. Restore the plain sql file /install/db/dedalo4_install.pgsql (from zip version) to the postgres created DB.

  4. Download the dependences and libs for Dédalo and install it into the /lib/ folder. In some cases you need to see the /lib/dedalo/config/sample.config4.php file in order to change or customize the installation.

  5. Rename the /lib/dedalo/config/sample.config4.php to /lib/dedalo/config/config4.php.

  6. Change the file /lib/dedalo/config/sample.config4_db.php with your DB configuration.

  7. Rename the /lib/dedalo/config/sample.config4_db.php to /lib/dedalo/config/config4_db.php.

  8. Run Dédalo into the browser. Like http://localhost/dedalo

  9. Fix your root password (you can change it only once), the default account is: root (this user is a superuser and only for development or debuger the application).

  10. Create one Administrator user account with all access to the system. This user will be the administrator of the system.

  11. Logout and login with the Administrator account.

  12. Create Users and Projects as you need. Optional: Import the toponymy that you will need (Dédalo install DB will not provide specific toponymy by default anymore).
