Help translate phpIPAM

Translation support will be available on next phpipam release, code is being redone and final checks ongoing. I have decided to go with gettext, it seems to be the most suitable for phpipam.

Translating is straight-forward, by providing translations for strings, for example:

#: functions/functions-mail.php:176
msgid “your domain username”
msgstr “translated text”

There are many tools available to help with translation, like poedit and others.

If anyone is interested in providing translation, please contact me on email. I have already received some requests in the past, I will try to dig up old emails…

  • Apache not installed and configured
  • phpipam will be installed in default directory (no vhosts) under /phpipam/ folder

If you already have MySQL/apache set you can skip point 3.

Installation procedure: ... Read more

phpIPAM in freeBSD ports

I recently noticed that phpIPAM is available also through FreeBSD ports (Thanks to Jake Smith):
cd /usr/ports/net-mgmt/phpipam && make install clean

Check your package managers, if it is available on some other unix distros post it here for reference...
