After this procedure restart Apache using the command:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start


Manually installing Scriptcase


Download Scriptcase with the extension zip or tgz at and extract the zip in the root of the Web Server which was installed previously (/var/www/html).

After extract the zip, rename the folder to scriptcase.


Access Scriptcase from your browser using the example below:



The page below shows the options of the installing language of ScriptCase.


Here it verifies the extensions installed. If you mark the check-boxes of the extensions not installed, it will try to configure the php.ini file to recognize the extensions selected.




Now you will choose to do a Typical Installation or a Customized Installation.

Typical Installation


Scriptcase will install everything automatically. After choosing the Typical Installation, you'll be redirected automatically to your Scriptcase development environment. By default the username is: admin and the password is: admin.


Customized Installation


You can choose what database Scriptcase will use to install and choose the default username and password to access your development environment.

Scriptcase needs some permissions to work properly , at this moment it checks the permissions.

This step consists in defining the database that ScriptCase will be installed. The default option is SQLite, that requires only its module to be active in PHP, but it is possible to install it on others databases by clicking on 'Change Database'. Going to the next step the tables will be created.

The tables were created with success.



Here you will create the login and the password for the administrator of ScriptCase.


If everything was ok in the installation, the following page will show. Click on Next to start Scriptcase.


The login page of Scriptcase with the user-name and password previously informed.
