Apache 2.2 installer for Windows (old versions)

As promised, here is the old installer that worked quite well as long as it was ran from the Windows command line in Administrator’s Mode:

Apache Software Foundation / Apache 2.2

 

 

 

Order processing: dealing with product assemblies

In some situations it can be handy to sell a set of items as an assembly instead of as discrete items. For example, a set including one table and six chairs would be defined as a unique product, having two items as its components: 1 x table and 6 x chair. In Gestix this is accomplished by defining the article type as a Kit/Package.

The price of the Kit/Package will be the sum of the components prices times their quantities. That prices can be predefined or left blank to make them being calculated at the order level and eventually select each item’s price from price list preferences for the involved customer or vendor.

Advantages compared to articles type Manufactured as Product:

  • Save operator time, inserting the kit/package into an order is similar to entering each and all of the components
  • Enable items to be sold both individually and as components of one or more aggregating items
  • Enable components to follow special price rules when used as part of a special product.

To add a new item as a kit/package proceed as follows.

Open the Articles menu, tap New Article.

Set manufactured as Kit/Package to define an assembly

Set Manufactured as Kit/Package.

kit-package-2

Enter description, and optional bar codes, prices and other relevant info.

kit-package-3

Press Save.

kit-package-4

Notice the link New Product Model – tap it to edit the item list. Open it and add the items to be included.

kit-package-composition

(In Gestix version 5.1.4 a small issue prevents the software from displaying the correct items list. Instead of using the Articles button, enter the exact item code to include the components from stock. This problem will be fixed in the next release of the software.)

kit-package-composition-finished

Unit prices can be defined in template or later on entering orders. Add each one of the components, editing unit prices or leaving them blank (zero) to assume order level pricing.

kit-package-composition-finished2

In this case the product model defines the prices to be used in this assembly.

Now, using this assembly item on a new order.

order-assembly-three-sets

Select our article from the list, and say we selling 3 sets, so enter 3 in the quantity field instead of 1.

order-assembly-three-sets2

Notice that the component quantities were multiplied by three because we said we were selling 3 sets.

In version 5.1.4, if the user edits lines of the components just after adding them to the order, they can get later be displayed in a different order. To circumvent this issue, save the order as Draft and then Modify it before editing lines involving the Kit/Package components. A fix will be released soon.

Yosemite beta program: read before trying it…

Updating the operating system on computers running as Gestix servers can cause problems to the Gestix system, which depends on MySQL and on Mac OS-X’s built-in webserver (usually Apache) to operate correctly.

Most important, make sure you have a fresh backup copy made at Gestix Admin menu, just in case you have to install Gestix from scratch.

You may have to install the last version of MySQL compatible with the version of the operating system. Check the MySQL site for information about any issue you may find.
When MySQL is working correctly and in the same conditions as before (same users/passwords) then reinstall Gestix – instructions in http://gestix.com/go/software-update.
Check details about the Mac OS-X version you are dealing with. Check if the built-in Apache webserver support has changed and configure it manually reproducing the previous configuration:
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

Alias /gnet "/var/lib/gestix/www"

<Directory "/var/lib/gestix/www">
 Options None
 AllowOverride None
 Order allow,deny
 Allow from all
</Directory>

#ScriptAlias /gnet/cgi-bin "/var/lib/gestix/www/cgi-bin/"

<Directory /var/lib/gestix/www/cgi-bin>
 Options ExecCGI Includes FollowSymLinks
 AllowOverride None
 Order allow,deny
 Allow from all
</Directory>
When both MySQL and the webserver Apache are operational, install Gestix again, following the instruction for installing a Gestix software update (http://gestix.com/en/software-update or http://gestix.com/pt/software-update). Open Gestix from the menu and press Cmd+R to reload the page if needed.
Generally this will fix the configuration of both MySQL and Apache, however many factors may interfere.
