I. Getting Started


1.1. Requirements


1.1.1. Server side


Dominion works with any webserver with PHP 5.2+ and any commercial database.
Supported databases by now are:
- Oracle
- Postgresql
- Microsoft SQL
- MySQL, MySQLi
- Informix
- Interbase
- Sybase
- DB2
- SQLite

and support the following connectors:
- Native connectors of each brands
- ODBC
- PDO

PHP must be compiled/installed with the connectors to the databases you need to use.

We have all our examples in PHP 5.2+. If you want to help to build the libraries in any other language and technology, you are welcome.


1.2. Download:


We recommend to always download the lastest version of Dominion from our site
http://www.webability.info/?P=dominion_download
Never download from other untrusted sources.

Be sure to always have the lastest version.
Visit us frequently !

1.3. Install:


The file you download is a tarball gziped file with the format dominion.buildxxx.tar.gz where xxx is the build number.

On windows, you can expand it with any decent compressor like zip ( http://www.winzip.com ), rar ( http://www.rarlab.com ) or powerarchiver ( http://www.powerarchiver.com ) and so on.

On Linux, put the dominion.buildxxx.tar.gz file in the directory you need it and type:
tar zxvf dominion.buildxxx.tar.gz

On Unix, put the dominion.buildxxx.tar.gz file in the directory you need it and type:
gunzip dominion.buildxxx.tar.gz
tar -xf dominion.buildxxx.tar
Or install gnu tar to use it like linux on your unix.

You should uncompress the dominion into a web directory ready to use it on your web server.

For example, if your apache is installed on:
/home/apache
your default web directory should be:
/home/apache/htdocs
Uncompress the dominion in this directory and you should get the main dominion directory:
/home/apache/htdocs/dominion

The dominion is totally included into the dominion/ directory and ready to use.

1.4. Examples:


All the examples are into the http://yoursite.com/dominion/examples/ directory, and are ready to use here.
