Installation

Compatibility

Plugins should always be compatible with higher Kimai versions, the following list contains the plugin version and the required minimum Kimai version.

Bundle version Minimum Kimai version
1.0 1.11

Copy files

Extract the ZIP file and upload the included directory and all files to your Kimai installation to the new directory:

var/plugins/SharedProjectTimesheetsBundle/

The file structure needs to like like this afterwards:

var/plugins/
├── SharedProjectTimesheetsBundle
│   ├── SharedProjectTimesheetsBundle.php
|   └ ... more files and directories follow here ...

Clear cache

After uploading the files, Kimai needs to know about the new plugin. It will be found once the cache was re-built. Call these commands from the Kimai directory:

How to reload Kimai cache

bin/console kimai:reload --env=prod

It is not advised, but in case the above command fails you could try:

rm -r var/cache/prod/*

You might have to set file permissions afterwards:

Fix Kimai file permission

You have to allow PHP (your webserver process) to write to var/ and it subdirectories.

Here is an example for Debian/Ubuntu (to be executed inside the Kimai directory):

chown -R :www-data .
chmod -R g+r .
chmod -R g+rw var/
chmod -R g+rw public/avatars/

Test Kimai before executing these commands (they are likely not required in a shared-hosting environment). You probably need to prefix them with sudo and the group might be called different than www-data.

Create database

Run the following command:

bin/console kimai:bundle:shared-project-timesheets:install

This will create the required database tables and update them to the latest version.

Updates

Updating the plugin works exactly like the installation:

  • Delete the directory var/plugins/SharedProjectTimesheetsBundle/
  • Execute all installation steps again:
    • Copy files
    • Clear cache
    • Update database with bin/console kimai:bundle:shared-project-timesheets:install
