Foundations Portfolio Valerie Kittell IRLS 672 August 2010
My goals for the course An understanding of the underlying structure of digital collections More effective at: – planning digital collections – managing digital collections – deploying digital collections – troubleshooting – discovering improvements
LAMP Server L = Linux operating system A = Apache server M = MySQL P = PHP: Hypertext preprocessor
Linux Sample work with Linux: adding and editing users, groups, permissions, and passwords.
Linux challenges “Though Linux works for me and many other users, its sheer power and generality is its Achilles' heel.” “Linux [is a] system of mind-boggling complexity and power.” – In the Beginning was the Command Line, Neal Stephenson
Apache and connectivity “Ping”ing my server… with success.
Apache challenges “There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don't.” (Unknown source)
Apache and XML A sample of my XML. winscp407 was used to upload it to my “diginubuntu1004” server.
MySQL -- ERD Digging into the Entity-Relationship diagrams to understand the construct.
Sample MySQL query - basic
Sample MySQL query- more complex
Sample php script
Sample user interface The php script is displayed for the user in this simple interface. The php script runs the query to MySQL and returns to the webpage with the results.
Goals completed A strong foundation to continue to the Advanced Applied Technology and later to plan, deploy, and manage digital collections.
