Now, I moved all database setup into
dbupgrade.php so starting with ShowSlow 0.15 new users can just run
make when they configured the database settings.
Some people showed confusion about make process as a whole (not very surprising for LAMP-based tool) so if you used tarball/zip packages to get the code and can’t get yourself to run make from a command line, you can just open
user/dbupgrade.php to run the upgrade. It’s not a recommended way to upgrade, because there might be more stuff to run in the future and make is still best.
More documentation can be found here: http://www.showslow.org/Installation_and_configuration#Database_setup
Frankly, make is pretty simple to use, but I understand why it can be harder to grasp. I’ll try to work on zero-friction installation and DB initialization in the future, but meanwhile, dbupgrade.php is simple enough.
Also in 0.15, I added HAR link beacon so you don’t have to store HAR file in the database, but can link just to the URL of HAR file.
Just follow upgrade instructions if you already have an instance running:
Or you can download code package:
and install it:
