Web based bookmark mangers
There are plenty of web based bookmark manager services out there but I wanted to install my own one on my Linux VPS server.
After looking at numerous bookmark managers I settled on SiteBar
See my post here for a walk through using SiteBar
It is open source , works with any browser, can import and export bookmarks.
SiteBar provides a service you sign up for if you don’t want to install your own server.
Installation is very easy. You need to have PHP and Mysql on your server.
Ensure in your php.ini system file ( /etc/php.ini on Centos ) you have set the timezone like
date.timezone = ‘Europe/London’
otherwise you will get a warning
Warning: getdate() [function.getdate]: It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings. You are required to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.
Make a directory somewhere under your web document root
You probably want to restrict access to the directory using Apache authentication controls
Download the zip file from the SiteBar site download page.
rename the directory to what you want to call it
mv sitebar-master.zip sitebar
Fire up your browser and go to hostname/sitebar/index.php
Fill in the DB Password ( this is the root password you set when you setup MySql )
The rest left as default
Click on Create Database
Click on Check Settings
Click on Download Settings and save the config.inc.php file to your desktop
Copy the config.inc.php file to /var/www/html/sitebar/adm directory
Click Check Settings and you should now go to a new page with an Install Button
Select language , fill in username , admin passwd, email , real name
Select the other options as required
Click on submit
Everything is now setup and you can start using things.
There is a link to the help documents but in general you right click on things to bring up an action menu. ( If right click does not work do Control-Right- click , you need to do this with some browsers like Galeon.).
