Can I use IBANs with LedgerSMB?

Yes. IBANs are very long, bank account numbers. LedgerSMB has no problems storing, retrieving and using these without any issue.

Is LedgerSMB SEPA proof?

Yes. SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) requires support for very long bank account numbers (IBANs or International Bank Account Numbers). LedgerSMB can store and use these numbers without problems.

How do I restore my data?

Assuming you have created a backup file using setup.pl, you can restore your database using the command:

 $ pg_restore [options] your_backup.bak

It should be pointed out that it's not possible to restore a backup to a database with a different name than the one you made the backup from!

How do I backup my data?

As of 1.3.7 the backup functionality moved to setup.pl, the database administration interface.

Login with your ledgersmb database user / admin user. This can't be done using your normal LedgerSMB login account since it doesn't have enough rights to backup db and roles. The default address for setup.pl is http://localhost/ledgersmb/setup.pl.

The setup.pl backup facility consists of two parts:

Controlling Starman

At the terminal, and from your LedgerSMB directory:

Start Starman

starman  tools/starman.psgi

Default port is 5000.

starman -l :8080 tools/starman.psgi

Start with 8080 specified as the port.

Note: some documentation specifies the switch

--preload-app

It has been sugggested that this may give performance advantages in a production environment but isn't recommended while developing.
The manpage has more to say on this.

How do I create a backup?

In the 'setup.pl' administrative interface, there are 2 buttons:

  • Backup database
  • Backup roles

One creates a backup of the content of your database. The other creates a backup of the roles.

Roles are elements which are required to exist before creation of a database, and assign fine-grained access control.

When restoring, you need both files and you need to restore the roles before the database.

Can I use LedgerSMB on MS Windows?

The answer to this question depends on what using means to you.

As a user of the web application, yes, there should be absolutely no problem using a recent (as in: no more than 2 or 3 years old) web browser in order to take advantage of all the features available.
