webInOutBoard lets you toss that employee in/out whiteboard in favor of a simple web page that employees can mark themselves in and out, leave notes on when they will be back, or find quick contact information for a coworker.

webInOutBoard is a web based script written with PHP that uses a mySQL database to store user information.


Install Instructions:

  1. tar -zxvf webInOutBoard-*.tar.gz
  2. chmod a+rX -R webInOutBoard
  3. Add a user, password, and database on your mySQL server for webInOutBoard. I like phpMyAdmin for working with mySQL.
  4. Edit dbinfo.inc.php to fit your system. Remember anyone who has an account on your system can likely see the contents of this file.
  5. Go to http://www.example.com/path/to/webInOutBoard/setup.php
  6. Then try http://www.example.com/path/to/webInOutBoard/
If you want to add a login, use the .htaccess/"require valid-user"/AuthName functionality of Apache to restrict access to this folder.
