Installation of the component OSG Seminar Manager

After unpacking the ZIP-file seminarman_vx.x.x_UNZIPME.zip, you will get two additional ZIP-files: com_seminarman_x.x.x.zip is the component and plg_user_seminarman_1.0.x.zip is a plugin. You have to install both of them using the Joomla! backend. For each of the files, enter the file name at Extensions > Extension Manager > Install > Upload Package File in the Joomla! menu, and click the button Upload and Install.

After installing the plugin, you still have to activate it. In the Extensions Manager, click the tab Manage and activate the Plugin User - Seminar Manager.

In the menu Components, you can now access the OSG Seminar Manager.

After the installation process, you have to make sure that your web server has write-access for the following two directories in your Joomla! directory:

JOOMLAROOT/administrator/components/com_seminarman/classes/tcpdf/cache
JOOMLAROOT/invoices

trainer! Please note: When creating PDF invoices, they are saved in the directory invoices. Make sure, that this directory is not directly accessible via the web server. You can also use another directory for the invoices, e.g. a directory that is not located under the document root of the web server. You can change this in the backend of the OSG Seminar Manager in the Options (top right button): Options > Invoices > Invoice Directory.

 

If the installation was successful, you will find the OSG Seminar Manager in the menu Components > Seminar Manager
