Step 1 :

 

Download the program along with the initial database from this site :

ftp://217.6.63.253/

username : robert

password : planb

 

_planB-x.x.x.zip is the program
_planB-SQL.zip is the MySQL database

Example : /0.1.7/_planB-0.1.7.zip and  /0.1.7/_planB-SQL.zip

If a new Version is released , only the exe file is uploaded

as long as the database is not changed , should the database

change  in the future, the scripts will be provided to alter

the database.

( The program has sample data for 2014.06 only )

 

Step 2 :

 

Extract the _planB-0.1.7.zip to somewhere on your computer for example c:\_planB\

Extract the _planB-SQL.zip to somewhere on your computer, you will need this file imported into your MySQL installation .

 

STEP 3 :

 

Start MySQL Workbench then, click on Data Import/Restore , then on Import from Self-Contained File , then

navigate to where you've downloaded the initial database for _planB.

 

Then click on NEW at Default Target Schema , and type _planB .

 

Then chose _planB as Default Target Schema.

 

Click on Start Import , and it should successfully finish, and we are done , with the MySQL part.

 

STEP 4 :

 

You start _planB.exe , where you will be greeted by a Initial Configuration screen, where you must specify the ip address of the

MySQL server , and the username and password you wish to use to gain access to this server.

The settings will be stored under the app_dir\Data\mysql.conf , in encrypted format, should you happen to make a mistake by

the configuration you can safely delete this file, and the program will once again ask you for the new settings on start up.

 

STEP 5 :

 

Start _planB.exe again , choose the desired language , then type in password admin . And you are in.

It is recommended that you change the password to something else. And for simple tasks add another user

with non-administrative rights.
