How to get past the settings page?

Post by dbolton »

I install the webapp and filled a username and password, but I'm not sure what to do next. I don't see a next button for example.

Hi,

I've been a happy MMEX user since 2009 on Windows PCs, 1 desktop in the office and 1 laptop normally used remotely. Currently I am at MMEX 1.5.8, database Version 7. I store the database in Dropbox. This works generally well, despite one or two sync issues when making changes offline. I'm attempting to build an MMEX web server on a Raspberry PI Model 3B. The fuctionality that was previously available when MMEX was an app on the Tonido server worked well, but that platform is no longer supported.

I'm a pretty confident hobbyist, with a handful of Ras Pis, a couple of TrueNAS servers and OPNsense firewall that I have built myself. I've done some simple Apache web server stuff for static web pages too. But I'm not familiar with PHP or SQlite. It would seem a shame to have to fuly learn these two subjects to get MMEX web server to work. My need is to use the web server more than it is to learn every detail of the underlying software.

I have followed the directions at https://github.com/moneymanagerex/web-money-manager-ex and at https://sourceforge.net/p/moneymanagere ... webserver/

Platform: Rapberry Pi Model 3B, 8GB SDHC card
OS: Raspberry Pi OS 10 (Buster) Lite, fully updated
Apache version: 2.4.38 (Raspbian)
PHP version: 7.3.29-1~deb10u1, including libapache2-mod-php7.3 and php7.3-sqlite

After a reboot, pointing my web browser at the Raspberry Pi IP address delivers the authentication page as expected. Filling in a user name and password is about as far as it goes. Disabling authentication gives no result either. I presume the outcome should be the generation of a GUID for the desktop application? I have read https://github.com/moneymanagerex/web-m ... /issues/15 and the suggestion by 'DMTwo' which suggests editing the file php.ini but I need more detail to make the changes myself.

Does anyone have any tips and tricks, or maybe a 'how-to' guide for MMEX web server? Thanks in advance.

Andrew
