1. System Requirements

OS: FreeBSD 13.2
IP address: 192.168.5.2
Hostname: ns3
Web server: apache24
Attendize version: Attendize 2.8.0
PHP-FPM
PHP version: PHP82
Dependencies: php82-gd, php82-session, php82-xml, php82-bcmath, php82-bz2, php82-ctype, php82-curl, php82-dom, php82-fileinfo, pcre2, composer php82 mod_php82 php82-mysqli php82-phar


2. Create Database Attendize

Attendize requires a database to store all information entered by users. All this information will be displayed on the Attendize platform. Currently Attendize only supports MariaDB and MySQL databases. Before you start installing Attendize, first create an Attendize database.

In this article we will use a MySQL server database as the Attendize backend. Please log in to the MySQL database server.
root@ns3:~ # mysql -u root -p
Next, we need to create a database to install Attendize.
root@localhost [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE attendize;
root@localhost [(none)]> CREATE USER 'userattendize'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'router123';
root@localhost [(none)]> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON attendize.* TO 'userattendize'@'localhost';
root@localhost [(none)]> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;


3. Install Dependencies

Almost all Attendize files run with PHP, because Attendize was created with the PHP programming language. It is important for you to install the PHP dependencies required by Attendize to function properly, otherwise don't expect to be able to run Attendize.

There are lots of PHP dependencies that Attendize requires, although all of them are important, the most commonly used is PHP Composer. Composer is a dependency manager for PHP that you can use to install packages. Composer will pull in all the necessary libraries and dependencies needed for your project.

Before you install Composer, run the command below to install PHP dependencies.
root@ns3:~ # pkg install php82-gd php82-session php82-xml php82-bcmath php82-bz2 php82-ctype php82-curl php82-dom php82-fileinfo pcre2 php82 mod_php82 php82-mysqli php82-phar
After that, you continue by installing Composer.
root@ns3:~ # curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer -o composer-setup.php
root@ns3:~ # php composer-setup.php --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=c


4. Install Attendize

FreeBSD does not provide an Attendize repository, you have to download Attendize from the official site or clone from the Github repository. In this article we will download Attendize from the Github server.
root@ns3:~ # cd /usr/local/www
root@ns3:/usr/local/www # git clone https://github.com/Attendize/Attendize.git
If the command above fails to clone, you can replace it with the "fetch" command.
root@ns3:/usr/local/www # fetch https://github.com/Attendize/Attendize/archive/refs/tags/v2.8.0.tar.gz
Once the download process is complete, run the extract command, to extract the v2.8.0.tar.gz file.
root@ns3:/usr/local/www # tar -xzvf v2.8.0.tar.gz
The above extract command will produce a file named "Attendize-2.8.0". To make the configuration process easier, replace the name with "attendize".
root@ns3:/usr/local/www # mv Attendize-2.8.0 attendize
Create an environment configuration file, by copying from an existing file. Here's how.
root@ns3:~ # cd /usr/local/www/attendize
root@ns3:/usr/local/www/attendize # cp -R .env.example .env
Open .env file, look for the script below.

DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=db
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=attendize
DB_USERNAME=attendize
DB_PASSWORD=attendize

Then you replace it with the following script.

DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=attendize
DB_USERNAME=userattendize
DB_PASSWORD=router123

After that, you run composer to install the various libraries that Attendize needs.
root@ns3:/usr/local/www/attendize # composer install
Attendize uses the Laravel framework to create laravel application keys.
root@ns3:/usr/local/www/attendize # php artisan key:generate
Run the installation command to migrate the database and create a user with administrator rights.
root@ns3:/usr/local/www/attendize # php artisan attendize:install


5. Configure httpd.conf

Like most other PHP applications, Attendize also runs with a web browser such as Google Chrome. To connect Attendize with a web browser, a web server is needed. In this article we will use the apache24 web server. You open the apache configuration file, namely "/usr/local/etc/apache24/httpd.conf", type the script below in the file.

Alias /attendize "/usr/local/www/attendize/"
<Directory "/usr/local/www/attendize">
    Options Indexes FollowSymlinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride All
    Require all granted
</Directory>


Run the ownership and permissions command in the /usr/local/www/attendize directory.
root@ns3:/usr/local/www # chown -R www:www /usr/local/www/attendize
root@ns3:/usr/local/www # chmod -R 775 /usr/local/www/attendize
