Re: LedgerSMB on Windows

Hi Gene,

Thank you, too, for your approach.  My linux computer OS is Ubuntu 10.4 (I think), so it no longer is the current version.  

There is this installation path (http://www.howtoforge.com/ledgersmb_debian_etch) for Debian etch.  My linux is not so strong yet that I can tell whether Debian etch is close or far from Ubuntu 10.4

You mention Firefox.  I migrated from that to Chrome over a year ago.  In your context are there reasons not to use Chrome?

I appreciate your quick reply and suggestions.  There is a lot for me to get on top of whether it is Windows or Linux.  I guess I will be going slowly.

Hi Tom,

To be honest I use FreeBSD Unix and Mageia Linux in my business. I do not use Microsoft systems in my home or for my business. I do install and support Microsoft systems for our company clients that need or want them. However, the rough steps would be:

        * Install a web server with PHP - like Apache for Microsoft
        * Install PostgreSQL for Microsoft
        * Install Firefox for Microsoft
        * Get all these working
        * Then install LedgerSMB and get it working

Frankly, looking at that makes me tired just thinking about all the work needed to make this play with a Microsoft system. I think you would be better off setting up a cheap Linux system with Apache, PostgreSQL and LedgerSMB, then connecting to that over your LAN using Firefox on your Microsoft PC.
