INTDB for Linux and Mac OS X

Hey guys

Many of you were asking for a version of INTDB to run in Linux or Mac OS and finally after many days of hard work I could find a way to do it.
Sadly this version won't be portable, but the installation process is short and simple and I wrote an step by step tutorial so you shouldn't have any problem.

This new INTDB version will work using XAMPP that is a multi-platform easy to install and use Apache web server with MySQL, Perl and PHP, although we only will use Apache and Perl to run the INTDB TWiki.

So now there will be two distros of INTDB, those are "INTDB Portable for Windows" and "INTDB4Xampp" for Linux and Mac OS X, both distros will keep the same version number for simplicity.

Besides releasing INTDB4Xampp I'm also releasing today the version 1.2 of INTDB, this new version includes:
  • Basic usage & tips guide.
  • Google Earth integration example.
  • The following cheatsheets:
    • Structural Labeling
    • Movement speeds
    • SALUTE report 
    • METT-TC 
    • Glossary
The "basic usage & tips guide" will explain you step by step how to create, delete and edit and how to include multimedia files and documents on your pages.

The Google earth integration example will show you a great tip as you can open .kmz files from your pages an see them on Google Earth and when you close it no traces are left of your work in it.

Also 5 new pages are included with cheat sheets that will help you with your intelligence tasks.

As usual you can contact me if you need any help or would like to share templates or ideas.
