    Dotproject is an AMP-based Open Source solution that handles project management. It boasts fully customizable privileged access for multiple users and companies (contractors, vendors, clients). Features include detailed project breakdowns, integrated calendars, forums, Gantt charting, trouble ticket system, and more. The system is primarily aimed for web development projects, but can easily be used for a wide variety of other purposes.

    Dotproject was recently updated to version 1.0.2. The new release adds an effective timer for task entries increasing the usefulness of this solution many fold.


    Step 1: Download Dotproject

    The source for Dotproject can be found at this site:


    Download, decompress and move the resulting files to your web directory at which you would like to run the software from.


    Step 2: Create Dotproject database

    Using PHPMyAdmin, create a new database on your server named “dotproject”

    Go to the directory have have installed your Dotproject and enter the “db” folder within. Find the file named “dotproject_101.sql” and open this in a text editor. At line 346 you will find a short section that can be edited for your installation. This is for configuring the administrator’s username & password as well as email. Save changes once completed. [Note that 1.0.1 is the current release as of this posting, alter this if the release is newer when you conduct this installation]

    With the SQL tab, click on the “Choose File” button and go to the Dotproject directory and to the “db” directory to select the file “dotproject_101.sql” file. Load this query into the database.


    Step 3: Authenticate into Dotproject

    At this point your installation should be ready to go. With a browser attempt to load the index.php page of the directory you loaded Dotproject into. You will be greeted with an authentication screen. Supply the username and password you specified in the query prior to loading the database. You should now be working within Dotproject.


    Version 2.01 Does anyone have any tips on getting the LDAP Authentication to work with either 10.3.9 or 10.4.1
