ChartBuilder for PHP

Deploying ChartBuilder

Step 1: Copy ChartBuilder files to your server

Copy the files you receive after your purchase to your server.  We recommend you place the files in a subdirectory within your web site, as ChartBuilder uses an index.php file.  The server must support PHP 5.3 or higher.

Step 2: Configure your MySQL Connection(s)

 ChartBuilder can support multiple MySQL databases.  Edit the databases.php file stored in the /config folder using the example in the file as a guide.

Step 5: Define your Configuration Database

Open and edit the line:
    define("ConfigDB", "ChartBuilderAdmin");
Change "ChartBuilderAdmin" to the display name of one of your database connections where you want to include the six ChartBuilder configuration tables.

Step 4: Run the Installer

Open and it will complete the installation.

Step 5: Verify your installation

Open the index.php file in your ChartBuilder directory. You should see a screen with a panel on the left-hand side and a button to create a new chart.
