I need someone who can quickly install Ushahidi and the required extensions it needs to run.
Introduction to Ushahidi
Ushahidi (meaning “testimony” in Swahili) was originally a website that was quickly developed to map reports of violence in Kenya after the post-election fallout at the beginning of 2008.
The new Ushahidi Engine incorporates the lessons learned from Kenya to create a platform that can be deployed by anyone to collect and visualize information, especially crisis information.
Server with Unicode support
PHP version >= 5.2.3
An HTTP Server. Kohana which Ushahidi is built upon is known to work with: Apache 1.3+,Apache2.0+,lighttpd, and MS IIS
PCRE must be compiled with –enable-utf8 and –enable-unicode-properties for UTF-8 functions to work properly.
iconv is required for UTF-8 transliteration.
SPLis required for several core libraries
mbstring which speeds up Kohana's UTF-8 functions.
There are two ways to install ushahidi. Either manually by creating and editing a config and database file or by using the web installer. The easiest is to use the web installer as it serves you with a form to fill without creating or editing any file.
