Step 1: Download the WI Software
The Web Interface software can be downloaded from the Forge. Click on the Files tab, and the zip file is available there. Download it, and unzip the contents (8 folders and 12 files). Select all these folders and files, right-click and choose Cut. Navigate to wamp\www, there should be just one file there, index.php, delete it, then paste the WI folders and files there.
Step 2: Import the WI Tables
Open phpMyAdmin, and select the opensim database from the left pane.
On the right, above the database structure, select the Import Tab.
Navigate to the wamp\www\sql_update folder, there should be 12 sql file here
Import each of these 12 files in turn, ignoring any error messages about empty results.
If you now go to your domain in a browser, you should see the WI, but with some junk code at the top of screen. Don't worry about that, it will be fixed.
Step 3: Restart Apache
Click on the Wamp system tray icon, and select Apache, Service, and Restart Service.
Step 4: Configure the Web Interface
Navigate to wamp\www\settings and open the config.php file in Notepad. At the top should be the System settings:
SysName: this is the name that will appear in the Title Bar of your WI.
SysURL: this is the address of your host (mine was http://anubia.servegame.org)
SysMail: provide a valid email address for yourself here
Now scroll down to the Database section, and enter your database details like this:
//Your Hostname here:
//Your Databasename here:
//Your Username from Database here:
//Your Database Password here:
Now save this file
If you now go back to your browser, enter the url of your host again, and refresh the page, you should see it OK
Step 5: Change your WI Admin Password
In your browser, enter the url of your host again, but add /admin/ at the end, like this:
The default user name is admin, and the password is test. Enter these and inside select Change Admin Pass from the menu in the left pane. In here you can change your password, and Save.
