Obtaining phpUserTrack

phpUserTrack must be installed in a web accessible directory. Exactly where this directory is will vary from system to system, but often it is /usr/local/apache2/htdocs.

phpUserTrack can be obtained in two ways. Both methods will create a subdirectory in the webserver's root folder:

Download from webserver

To install phpUserTrack from a tarball (ie phpUserTrack-x.y.z.tar.gz), download the latest stable version of phpUserTrack which is availible from the website at

For example, as of writing, the best availible version was 0.6.3. Extract the tarball from the command line:

$ tar -xzvf phpUserTrack-0.6.3.tar.gz

Now, move the extracted folder to a subfolder in the webserver directory. In this case, we'll use /usr/local/apache2/htdocs.

$ mv phpUserTrack-0.6.3 /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/phpUserTrack

Checkout from Subversion repository

To use the latest development code, you'll probably want to use the Subversion repository.

To check out the code, do the following from the command line:

$ cd /usr/local/apache2/htdocs

$ svn co phpUserTrack

Keeping phpUserTrack up to date is easier this way since updating to the latest version is as simple as entering

$ svn up

at the command line.

Configure phpUserTrack

Much of phpUserTrack's configuration is handled by a config file, located in conf/conf.php. A brand new install of phpUserTrack doesen't have this file, so you need to copy it from the provided sample template.

$ cd phpUsertrack/conf

$ cp conf.php.dist conf.php

Now, edit the configuration file:

$ vi conf.php
