Online-Bookmarks / Requirements

I am having a break!

Online-Bookmarks has been developed for over seven years now. There where incredible many comments, feedbacks, ideas and help from people all over the world. In fact there have been so many, that I was not able to answer all of them. I really do appreciate every single message that reached me. But I need to get some distance of this application for the next couple of month, mainly because of this. Thanks to all of you supporting this tool, especially the one that made a donation. In the meantime the latest version will remain available for download. The same is also available on CVS.

So long, Stefan

All you need to make it work is a Web server (I do it with Apache) with PHP (Version 4.3.0 or later) and a MySQL server (at least Version 4.1).

Since some variables are stored in sessions, you must have cookies (or at least session cookies) enabled in your browser, otherwise Online-Bookmarks will not work. The "remember me" function also stores information in a cookie, so it is a good idea to enable cookies anyway. There is quite some JavaScript code in Online-Bookmarks, such as the menu, the Sidebar tree and parts of the tree selection. Therefore, to apply with Online-Bookmarks you need to use a browser with JavaScript enabled.

If you would like to benefit from the nice little feature that downloads Favicons, you must have ImageMagick installed on your server. It does not matter whether you have installed ImageMagick from source or you use the binary distribution, both versions are working fine. You can find the binary release here and the source code here.
