New School Events system

I've just completed a monthly summary report that includes school event fields (and also includes per grade attendance, enrollment changes, staff absences, principal walkthroughs). I've also created a central site report that summarizes this data for our 16 schools here. This will come out with the 9.0 release.

New Open Admin 8.50 Released

I've just released the new 8.50 version for download in the download area. Any problems, please let me know. If is designed to run on the newer Linux versions (Debian 8.1 or Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS) and uses the latest Apache modules to support teacher authentication on the teacher site. OA 8.3 used the older methods of the older Apache version.

If you get stuck, please let me know, and I'll help! -- Les Richardson ( openadmin AT )

Ubtuntu Install issues

Michael Peters has noticed a couple of problems using Ubtuntu rather than Debian (and using the Debian install scripts). I'll update the install scripts to handle both, when I get a minute over the next couple of weeks. I've just finished a full week (8-5, M-F) of Alberta Education compliance testing last week, and so had to go camping to take a break!

Hi Les

I downloaded OA8.0 to test. Here are a few observations when installed on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit Server

Apache2 will not load cgi (perl scripts) but try to download them so enable the cgi module.
sudo a2enmod cgi
sudo service apache2 restart
The htpasswd files to go into '/etc/apache2/auth_users' were not created.
sudo apt-get install apache2-utils

Alberta Education - Pasi Testing

I'll be doing PASI testing for Alberta Education compliance in middle July. I'm working through compliance manual now to make sure I've got all coding correct, and to fix any holes in requirements.
