HOWTO Changing Help Tab URL

From Bicom Systems Wiki

Should the help URL link in the documents need to be changed, follow these instructions:

  • Login into the PBXware shell
  • Navigate to the /opt/pbxware directory
 cd /opt/pbxware/
  • Set link for the first time
 sh/mysql -e "INSERT INTO admin_site.config VALUES ('SM','HELP_URL', 'http://www.your-url.com')"

In case you would like to edit the URL you set up earlier, procedure is somewhat different:

  • Login into the PBXware shell
  • Navigate to the /opt/pbxware directory
 cd /opt/pbxware/
  • Update database
 sh/mysql -e "UPDATE admin_site.config SET value = 'http://www.your-new-url.com' WHERE name = 'HELP_URL'"

this should change your HELP URL in PBXware.

NOTE: Your URL must contain full address including http:// as if you only use www.your-new-url.com it will not be opened successfully.

To check if your link was successfully updated, or to check if it exists, navigate to /opt/pbxware:

 cd /opt/pbxware/
  • Check database for HELP_URL entry:
 sh/mysql -e "SELECT value FROM admin_site.config WHERE name = 'HELP_URL'"

If you successfully entered/edited URL output should look like this:

 +---------------------------+
 | value                     |
 +---------------------------+
 | http://www.your-url.com   |
