Requirements

You will need to install:

  1. MySQL
  2. Apache
  3. PHP
  4. GD


Installation

Create a swisscenter directory in apache's DocumentRoot (/mnt/hda/opt/apache/htdocs) : ((note I did not change it as in the docs e.g share/www))

mkdir /mnt/hda/opt/apache/htdocs/swisscenter

Download Swisscenter into previously created directory

cd /mnt/hda/opt/apache/htdocs/swisscenter
wget http://www.swisscenter.co.uk/downloads/swisscenter.zip

Unzip the downloaded file

unzip swisscenter.zip

Change user:group

chown -R nobody:nogroup /mnt/hda/opt/apache/htdocs/swisscenter

Restart apache

/mnt/hda/opt/apache/bin/apachectl restart

Run it

Go to your Swisscenter on your Linkstation

http://<IPAdddress>/swisscenter

Hopefully you will see this message

   You have not created a database.

Please use the Configuration Utility to create a database


Now goto Swisscenter config on your Linkstation

http://<IPAdddress>/swisscenter/config

and hopefully you'll see this:

Set up the databases and point it to your media and you should be away! In order to be able to get weather forecasts, internet radio and updates you will need to

vi /mnt/hda/opt/apache/htdocs/swisscenter/base/server.php

and add change

if ( $sock = @fsockopen('66.249.87.99', 80, $temp, $temp, 0.5)) // www.google.com

to

if ( $sock = @fsockopen('google.com', 80, $temp, $temp, 0.5)) // www.google.com

Once it's configured

http://<IPAdddress>/swisscenter

and you should see this:

Troubleshooting

In the event of something not working as it should, do this and ask for help

Create a file to see your php settings

vi /mnt/hda/opt/apache/htdocs/swisscenter/config/test_php.php 

and put this in it

<?
phpinfo();
?>

It should output your PHP settings when you try to reach it, check for MySQL support

 http://<LinkstationIP>/swisscenter/config/test_php.php 

Create a file to check you MySQL settings

vi /mnt/hda/opt/apache/htdocs/swisscenter/config/test_mysql.php 

and put this in it

<?
echo mysql_pconnect('swiss','swisscenter','swisscenter');
?>

Try and access it and see what it gives you
