TicketsCAD install on a RPI3

Tonight Robin was able to help me through the whole process of an install on an RPI3 - this the first how to I have seen.

Installing OpenCAD / Open ICSE on a Raspberry PI3. 

Download location: 


Preparing the pi:


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade


sudo apt-get install mariadb-server mariadb-client -y

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin -y


If you don’t have apache or php installed yet, follow these instructions


sudo mkdir /var/www/html/ticketscad

cd Downloads

sudo mv /var/www/html/ticketscad

cd /var/www/html/ticketscad

sudo unzip


sudo mysql -u root -p

create database ticketscad;

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON ticketscad.* TO 'ticketscad'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'replace with prefered password' WITH GRANT OPTION; *single line


In the browser open http://localhost/ticketscad and click on the install.php link. Follow the instructions, and hopefully you will get to a page where you need to enter the database info.


Host would be localhost, and username ticketscad, and password the one you set up above in the GRANT ALL statement.


For later reference if needed:


User: phpmyadmin

Pass: raspberry


Tickets users created 

admin / admin

To be honest, I thought this
To be honest, I thought this post would have got more comments.

Your contribution is important

Wade, I understand your concern, but one thing to keep in mind is that your forum post has become part of the AREDN "permanent record" so people for years to come can refer to the important work you've documented.  A lower than expected number of immediate comments doesn't mean your post isn't important.  For years to come people can refer to your how-to and receive benefit.  Everyone thanks you guys for the work you put into this effort for the benefit of the entire community.  Much appreciated!

Installing failure
Hello VK1MIC,
I am trying to install ticketsCAD on a Rpi3B+ following your guidelines and have a problem:
Doing http://localhost/ticketscad I am getting:

Then clicking on "tickets-3.40.3"  Ithe system answer:
This appears to be a new Tickets installation; file '' absent. Please run install.php with valid database configuration information.
Running "install.php" the answer is:

Installing 2.20 A base beta

ERROR! Directory './incs' is not writable. 'Write' permissions must be corrected for installation.

I thank you in advance for help and look forward to a repluy at your earliest convenience
