Step 2 - Exporting Data To SQLITE

Export Data To SQLITE Database Data

Step 3 - Create A Folder For The Web Transcription

OPTION 1 -- Website with Only One Cemetery Database

  1. In the My Documents Folder create a folder named websites.
  2. In the websites folder create a folder named SomeCemeteryName.
  3. In the SomeCemeteryName folder create a folder named images.

OPTION 2 -- Website with with multiple Databases

  1. In the My Documents Folder create a folder named websites.
  2. In the websites folder create a folder named cemeteries.
  3. In the cemeteries folder create a folder named settings
  4. In the cemeteries folder create a folder named SomeCemeteryName1.
  5. In the SomeCemeteryName1 folder create a folder named images.
  6. In the cemeteries folder create a folder named SomeCemeteryName2.
  7. In the SomeCemeteryName2 folder create a folder named images.
  8. Repeat steps 4 & 5 for each additional cemetery

Step 4 - Copy the Database To The Folder

Copy the database to the SameCemetery Name Folder.

Step 5 - Make a Copy of the image (ALSPWO) folder to Images

In the cemetery's ALSPWO folder copy the images to the newly created images folder that was created in Step 3.

Be certain that the images were copied and not moved.

The images folder needs a copy because you may want to reduce their size for the website and you do not want to change the original images.

Step 6 - Copy The WebCem Files

OPTION 1 -- Website with Only One Cemetery Database

Copy all the WebCem files to the SomeCemetery Name Folder

OPTION 2 -- Website with with multiple Databases

  1. Copy the following to the settings folder:
    • style-webcem.css
    • template-webcem-ceminfo.html
    • template-webcem-index.html
    • template-webcem-individual.html
    • noimage.png
  1. Copy the following to the SomeCemeteryName folder:
    Repeat this step for each cemetery.
    • webcem.php
    • config-webcem.php

Step 7 - Edit The Config File

Open the config file double clicking on webcem.php.

If the PC has never edited a php file before you may receive the message asking to associate a program with the file.

If the "Windows cannot open this file" message is displayed then choose "Select the program from a list" then click "OK"

Configure the WebCem

OPTION 1 -- Website with Only One Cemetery Database

  1. Change the database name to the name of the database that is being used
    Same name as the database in the same folder.
    $CEMEDITOR_DATABASE_NAME = "SomeCemeteryName-sqlite.db";
  2. Enter your Publisher License Number
    $PUBLISHER_LICENSE_NUMBER = "Your License Number";
  3. Enter your WebCem Registration Number
    $WEBCEM_REGISTRATION_NUMBER = "Your WebCem Registration Number";

OPTION 2 -- Website with with multiple Databases

  3. Enter your WebCem Registration Number
    $WEBCEM_REGISTRATION_NUMBER = "Your WebCem Registration Number";
