Note: This will not work for Windows 95/98/Me, it's only for Windows 2000/XP and maybe NT 4.0

This guide is for Apache2 with PHP5. If you want to use older versions, 
read the JFFNMS 0.7.9 INSTALL.win32.txt file.


Install Apache: 
	Download Apache2 from: http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/binaries/win32/
	Get the latest release "no_ssl.msi" package, like "apache_2.0.52-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi".
	Complete Install, Click on Next until Finish. 
	You should see Apache running in your taskbar.
	Test it going browsing to http://localhost/ or http://IP.OF.YOUR.BOX/

Install MySQL: 
	Download from: http://www.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/4.1.html
	Scroll down until you find MySQL Essentials for Windows.
	Select the "Complete Install", Click on Next until Finish.

	When you go into the configuration phase, select "Server Machine",

	All other configuration leave as default.
Install PHP:
	Download PHP 5 from: http://www.php.net/downloads.php
	Get the "Windows Binaries ZIP package" with all the modules (First One).

	Extract the archive to c:\php 

	Execute the following: 
	    c:\> copy c:\php\php.ini-dist c:\windows\php.ini
	    c:\> copy c:\php\libmysql.dll c:\windows\
	Create Folder c:\usr
	Copy c:\php\extra\mibs to c:\usr\mibs

Install JFFNMS:
	Download the .zip file (I'm sure you already have done this) and extract it to c:\jffnms 

	Create the User 'jffnms' in the Windows User Manager with any password you choose.
	Remember to CHECK 'Password Never Expires' and UNCHECK 'Must Change password at next logon' for this user.
	Give the 'jffnms' user FULL CONTROL over the c:\jffnms folder (and its sub-folders)

Install RRDTOOL:
	Download from: http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/rrdtool/pub/?M=D

	Copy the rrdtool.exe file from inside the archive to c:\jffnms 

Install NMAP: (If you are running Windows XP please read the NMAP page carefully, it may not work)
	Download it from: http://www.insecure.org/nmap/nmap_download.html
	Get the nmap-3.81-win32.zip file (or newer)
	Extract the nmap.exe file from the archive to c:\jffnms\

Install WinPCAP for NMAP:
	Download it from: http://winpcap.polito.it/
	Choose the Auto-Installer.
	Complete Install, Click on Next until Finish.

Configure Apache for PHP5:

	Add this to the bottom of your c:\program files\apache group\Apache2\conf\httpd.conf file:

	LoadModule php5_module c:/php/php5apache2.dll
	AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

	NameVirtualHost *

	<VirtualHost *>
    	    ServerAdmin hide@address.com
    	    DocumentRoot c:\jffnms\htdocs
    	    ServerName nms.yourdomain.com
	    DirectoryIndex index.php
	    LimitRequestLine 20000

	* Make sure you modify the above information to match your needed settings

Configure PHP:	
	Make sure you have this on your php.ini file:

	register_globals = On
	register_argc_argv = On
	allow_url_fopen = On
	extension_dir = c:\php\ext
	(Uncomment the following):
	SMTP = your.mail.server.com	(set it to your mail server IP or DNS name)

	Now Restart the Apache Service.

	if you don't change these, JFFNMS will not work.

Configure MySQL:

	To create the JFFNMS DB run the following:
	Check the path to mysql.exe

	c:\> c:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\bin\mysql.exe -u root -p<Root MySQL Password>
	mysql>CREATE DATABASE jffnms;
	mysql>GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON jffnms.* TO hide@address.com IDENTIFIED BY 'jffnms';  

	c:\> c:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\bin\mysql.exe -ujffnms -pjffnms jffnms < c:\jffnms\docs\jffnms-0.8.x.mysql 	
	Replace x with the version you are installing.

Configure JFFNMS:
	I M P O R T A N T
	Go to: http://yourserver/

	Verify and change (if needed) the options. 
	Don't mind the errors on diff, neato, smsclient, fping, ntpq, PgSQL and SOAP.
	Save the configuration and change the values until everything needed is Green.
	Everything else SHOULD be OK. 

	Scheduled Tasks:

		contents of the .bat files (path).
