Setup, Requirements, and Upgrades

Delightful Labor is a web-based application, written in the php programming language using the MySQL database engine. To use the software, you will need an Internet hosting account that supports php (version 5.3.0 or newer) and MySQL (version 4.1 or above).

To unpack the zipped software, you will need a program such as 7zip. To install the software, you will need an ftp client program, such as Filezilla. To run the Delightful Labor, you will need a computer with an Internet connection and a web browser program.

Alternatively, you can run Delightful Labor directly on your computer or local area network. To do this, you will need to set up your computer to act like an Internet server. This option is a bit more complicated, but open-source packages (such as WAMP) are available.
