Those in the IT and programming field understand the value enterprise content management and what that can ultimately mean to an organization on the overall company vision and engagement with their external and internal customers. Through the open development of platforms like Mojavi this collaboration has enabled people from across the globe to contribute in developing a platform that can be used in various business and web functions in order to facilitate customer engagement.

customer managementWhen you have the Mojavi 3 source, it should come with this directory structure:

root
|
|—config
|
|—phing
|
|—php_documentor
|
|—source
| |
| |—mojavi
| |
| |—webapp
| |
| |—www
|
|—sql

Here is a brief explination of each of the directories

* config – sample configuration files
* phing – phing scripts (learn more about phing here )
* php_documentor – templates for generating Mojavi API docs php Documentor website
* source – all the source files
* source/mojavi – the core Mojavi source
* source/webapp – your web application
* source/www – web accessible files
* sql – sql sample files

Installation Steps:
Moving the Mojavi Source

First, move the source/mojavi directory to a non web accessible location, preferrably the parent directory of your root web directory. On most installations this would be the parent directory of your public_html or www directory. On a Windows Apache, this would probably be the parent of the htdocs directory. Move the entire contents of the mojavi directory (including the mojavi folder)
Setting up the webapp

Move the source/webapp directory to a non web accessible location, preferrably the parent directory of your root web directory, which should now have a mojavi directory. Next, give your webapp/cache directory full write permissions. In unix you can type “chmod 777 cache”. On Windows you must go through your webserver to give it write permissions.

You must configure your webapp/config.php configuration file.

There are two lines you need to change

// +—————————————————————————+
// | An absolute filesystem path to the mojavi library. This directory |
// | contains all the Mojavi packages. |
// +—————————————————————————+
define(‘MO_APP_DIR’, ‘/mojavi’);

// +—————————————————————————+
// | An absolute filesystem path to your web application directory. This is |
// | where modules are stored. |
// +—————————————————————————+
define(‘MO_WEBAPP_DIR’, ‘/webapp’);

Replace DIRECTORY with the web directory. Under Linux, it may look like /home/username/. Under Windows (with Apache) it may look like c:/apache/

Here’s the final code

// +—————————————————————————+
// | An absolute filesystem path to the mojavi library. This directory |
// | contains all the Mojavi packages. |
// +—————————————————————————+
define(‘MO_APP_DIR’, ‘/home/username/mojavi’);

// +—————————————————————————+
// | An absolute filesystem path to your web application directory. This is |
// | where modules are stored. |
// +—————————————————————————+
define(‘MO_WEBAPP_DIR’, ‘/home/username/webapp’);

Final Step

Move the index.php file in the source/www directory to your root web directory (the public_html, www or htdocs directory). This file must be accessible from the web. Any location that is accessible via the web will do.

Now you need to configure your web directory’s index.php file that you just moved.

// +—————————————————————————+
// | An absolute filesystem path to our webapp/config.php script. |
// +—————————————————————————+
require_once(‘INSERT PATH TO “webapp/config.php” HERE’);

// +—————————————————————————+
// | An absolute filesystem path to the mojavi/mojavi.php script. |
// +—————————————————————————+
require_once(‘INSERT PATH TO “mojavi/mojavi.php” HERE’);

The same directory rules apply here as with the config.php file. Here’s the results

// +—————————————————————————+
// | An absolute filesystem path to our webapp/config.php script. |
// +—————————————————————————+
require_once(‘/home/username/webapp/config.php’);

// +—————————————————————————+
// | An absolute filesystem path to the mojavi/mojavi.php script. |
// +—————————————————————————+
require_once(‘/home/username/mojavi/mojavi.php’);

Success

You’re done. Try accessing your index.php file from the web.

Getting a good nights sleep

0 comments

If you travel frequently and have to stay in hotels then you have probably had those late nights where it just seems impossible to get to sleep. I will often find myself watching TV and trying to get some rest for my meeting the following day with little impact. It is especially worse when I am traveling across different time zones and your body is unable to adjust because you may only be in that city for a day or two. So you try your best and hope that if you are unable to get that good nights rest that there is a coffee shop close by in order to get you going.

In my most recent travels I stayed in a hotel that offered a white noise machine as part of their package. I have heard about these devices that are able to produce subtle background noises like waterfalls or soft rushing waves in order to help you get a better nights sleep. I must say based on my stay and how well rested I was the next day it appeared to have worked quite well. So good in fact that apparently there was a thunderstorm that rolled through the area early in the morning and I did not hear a sound. While traveling on the road it can be tough to get to sleep because you are not in your own bed and having a sound machine that will play soft tones in order to help relax in order to get a better nights sleep is something that I may have to invest in.

wikiA another new breakthrough from Apple who brought us the iPod, the iPhone and now the new MacBook laptop that is the thinnest notebook available. The commercials are impressive and looking at this laptop it is hard to believe that it is actually thin enough to fit into a mailing envelope. I have always been a PC guy and all the laptops that I have owned have been windows based. This may all have to change especially with as much traveling as I have to do lately the convenience that this new technology will bring will be great.

nikonThere are now dedicated sites likie Shopwiki UK.where you can find items like the Nikon Coolpix camera and thousands of other items to be compared.

Scheduling online appointments

Posted on 15th September 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

online-apptIf you are in sales you know that nothing can happen until you are in front of the customer. In most cases this will mean calling on that potential customer, scheduling the appointment, and then asking for the business.  I have been in sales for over 20 years and earlier in my career I would setup the appointment to see a potential customer and jot it down in my day planner and consider that good. In some instances you would travel to the customers location only to find out that they had forgotten or canceled and forgot to call. This was frustrating and a waste of time that I could have spent with other customers. Our business owners were constantly juggling the phone in order to set up key meetings and dates so that we would could function more efficiently as a team. That is why I was excited to blog about a new free online appointment scheduling software that enables you and your clients to view and makes appointments online.

I can’t imagine the amount of time and money that you will save if you are a small business owner or someone who relies on the face to face meeting with the customer in order to make your liviing. Having this free online tool that you can access from anywhere you have a internet connection is great. With so many sales professionals and business owners having the mobile technology being able to access an online scheduling tool is a huge advantage. Many people will schedule appointments through their Blackberry or MS Outlook but since your customers are unable to access this calendar if they change the time and date or cancel all together you will only be notified via a phone call. With this new free online appointment tool from checkappointments.com when you schedule the appointment both you and the customer receive reminders about the meeting. This will save you both a lot of time and hassle of trying to remember those meeting times and dates. With this free scheduling tool you can brand the site with yourname.checkappointments.com or use your company name instead. This will help create top of mind awareness that will give you an advantage over your competition.

You can find web hosting tutorials online to help navigate all the choices and help to simplify your choices. Since most companies you find online are now offering unlimited bandwidth, storage, and other features you will want to understand what each of these really mean and how they will affect you and your blog or website.

You can always find cheap web hosting but remember that you get what you pay for.

What is Wi-Fi?

Not to be confused with mobile broadband , Wi-Fi requires an Internet signal to be in range for connectivity. In addition to being used at home and offices, Wi-Fi can be accessible through ‘hotspots’. Restaurants, airports and hotels often offer free hotspots to attract and retain customers, especially in the Internet driven world we live in today.

Fuel efficient rides are they worth the cost

We just recently ordered a brand Toyota Hybrid for my company car and I really excited about having a new car and one that is supposed to be better for the environment. Now that gas prices have come down to under $2 per gallon I wondered how much extra I would be saving in fuel costs. It turns out that the cost savings in fuel is not as a dramatic as it was 3 months ago, but the other benefits of owning a hybrid car should be beneficial overall.

One of the things that I noticed when ordering our new car is that some of the features available on the non-hybrid model were non-existent on the hybrid model. So this got me to thinking about a post we did early for those holiday shoppers out there looking for something creative to get that special one who is a proud owner of a hybird vehicle. At juicedhybrid.com they carry a great selection of accessories for most of the major manufacturers of hybrid models. And if you are not sure then there are always gift cards to their site so that they can pick out exactly what they want. So why not go green this Christmas and purchase something that they will be able to enjoy year round and actually do some good for the environment.

Is your hybrid ready for the winter

We wrote a few weeks ago about the latest accessories for your hybird vehicle. When they first came out they were in limited supply and most modifications were hard to come by. Now this holiday season you will find snow racks, engine block heaters, and car covers especially designed for your hybrid. Just because you are trying to go green and help do your part for the environment does not mean that your ride has to be boring.

With the advancement in technology and new cross over and SUV type vehicles are being introduced into the hybrid vehicle world you will have more choices and options. Most the major car makers have introduced several new lines and even the luxury car makers are getting into the game as well. So if you are shopping this holiday and unsure what to get that person that has everything and has just purchased the new Porsche Hybrid then maybe a new accessory that will make their ride just a bit more special could be just what Santa ordered.

If you own and operate a small to medium sized business and sell both online and have a storefront then you hopefully are aware of the need to understand what you have on hand at all times. Businesses can lose money if they have to much stock on hand and their carrying costs are high, or they run out of a popular seller which results in lost sales and customers. Having a inventory management software solution that will help tell you when to order and what items are selling faster can help your bottom line. With the fluctuation in the consumer market what is hot today may be old news tomorrow and managing that inventory can be critical to ensuring your long term success. Solutions from companies like OrderWise incorporate several layers of analytic’s to help you understand which items are selling and what time of year they are in most demand. Knowing this information can help you plan for 6 months out and prepare for a great holiday season or start getting rid of items that may be starting to slow down.

Grab a deal online at Deal Fun

We have all heard and probably used the auction site eBay. Today there is a new wave of auction sites that are making a big entrance called penny auction sites. The newest penny auction site called dealfun.com is making waves across several news sites and have some features to help newbies understand how to best use the site. You join for free and maybe get a few free bids and then the game starts. What is alluring from a simple onlookers stand point is that you have an $800 item selling for $4.53. You can bid on and win items like iPads, laptops, and PS3’s. That sounds amazing and why can’t I win that. Here is how this auction works. Unlike sites like eBay where you bid on an item and you don’t win you are out nothing. At DealFun, once you bid the money is now put towards the item. So you can bid 4-5 units that may cost you .50 each but if someone outbids you that money is gone. The psychological aspect is quite interesting because the dollar is so low that you feel risking a few dollars to win a $800 item cannot be that bad. They are fun to watch and if you step into the game make sure that you set yourself a limit or you could end paying a lot for nothing. DealFun has put a solution in place for your first series of bidding that allow you to regain your bids within 24 hours of your first bidding experience. Plus they offer access to customer support and offer help to everyone  on your question.  I do like that they show what items sold for, who won them, and how many bids they used to win the item. They have just come online with a great domain name and will be compiling stories from across the industry on various auction types available. You can find articles on the site at MSNBC or on Yahoo to understand what other are saying.
