OS services bundle info

core
i've updated the quick setup guide with some corrections and additional
information which will hopefully help with a few of the issues brought
to my attention over the past few weeks.  here are the new (permanent)
file locations:

static download: http://opensim.odosys.net/files/ in 'OpenSim_Services'
github repo: https://github.com/anticore/os_services_bundle <-- fork away!

if you're upgrading from the original version posted prior to December,
instructions are in the Documents folder.

happy holidays to all!

Thank you, Jason.
 
How would one go about, "This is accomplished by running the parser.php script in the Search Module web folder" on a Windows machine?

Thanks Core!

I am looking forward to adding your services bundle to my DIVA install over the holidays.

Say, maybe you and Diva could team-up and include your bundle in Diva's next release?

at the bottom of the quick setup guide (below the sentence you
mentioned) i posted a link to the Moodle site containing simple cron
solutions for all 3 platforms.  the Windows specific link has 2 options,
the first being a quick-installing service which allows you to specify a
url to be 'pinged' at specific intervals.  it's called the 'Moodle chron
package' but it can be used for ANY web service, not just Moodle:

http://docs.moodle.org/20/en/Cron_with_Windows_OS

when you run the installer, after blowing past the legal stuff, the
first option will  ask you if you want to enable logging for the
service.  that's up to you.  if you just want to try it out, hit no.
you'll avoid adding more jibberish to a system log most people never
touch anyway ;)

the next window asks you how often in minutes you'd like the service to
ping the url.  the default is 10, which is fine to start with.  i don't
know what the optimal number is here since everyone's grid is different
as is the frequency with which they add content.  so, go with 10.

the next window is the important one.  here's where you enter the
url/php file to be pinged.  enter the path to your search module's
parser file:
http://<your.domain.or.IP.here>/os_services/search/parser.php - you get
the idea.

when it asks you if you want to add another site, just say no.  2 more
obligatory clicks and you're done.  now, the cron event will run
silently as a standard windows service and regularly ping the parser
file which will in turn update the information that the Data Snapshot
module needs.

[[note]] the second option on the Moodle page involves creating a
scheduled task which many people who already admin Windows servers are
familiar with.  it works just as well, takes a few more steps to set up
and might be more reliable for some.  the choice is yours.  i favor the
first option because it's easy to kill by simply uninstalling through
normal means.

hope this helps.

Thank you very much for this excellent explanation. I'm sure this will help many Windows users.
