I downloaded and installed achievo project management cms software to my hosting account and installed it. I kept getting disconnects when I uploaded the unzipped untared directory to my hosting account. I finally just uploaded the tar.gz file and extracted it there. The installation went well after that.
Everything seemed to be working correctly until I created a project and tried to add some ToDo's to the project. I kept getting an error that said: "Save failed due to the following reason: Owner: This field is required". OK, there is no "Owner" field, so what's this all about? I go to the achievo website and submit an email, rather quickly, to inquire about this error. It was on Friday, so the fact that I haven't got a reply yet is understandable. Friday night and Saturday I went to the achievo website and searched their forum for this error with no success. Today, Sunday I return to the site and play around with the search parameters some more and make it as general as possible. Finally I find the solution. It turn out that one cannot use the administrator account to manage a project. An account has to be created, with sufficient security clearance, to create ToDo's and manage a project in general. Cool, I found the solution, now I'm ready to get busy. I go into the software interface and create a ToDo. It works! I'm excited. It seems like some really cool software.
This is where it gets very discouraging. I did something after creating the first ToDo that blew out the entire interface. How can that possibly happen? You should get a message or something that tells you a certain element is missing, not a bunch of PHP errors and no interface. I couldn't even login anymore or anything. I would have had to reinstall something. I decided that was some BS, and went to delete it from my host. Then I get some more errors. It appears the achievo software had created files under the username nobody with the group nobody and the permissions set to 644. I was not even able to delete the stuff from my host.
The programmers over at ibuildings.nl should think this stuff through a little better before dispatching something to the public. Or do they just think the public is a good place to test their software. Let them experience our bugs. Let them do our QA. I'm a little bit upset about it. My time is valuable to me. They should QA something better than that before releasing it.
