Family Tree Package

Postby 2326766 » Fri Jan 13, 2012 2:42 am

Hi,

Does anyone know of a good family tree software that can be installed on the NAS with the following reqirements:

1. PHP driven
2. Web Based
3. Mysql or sqlite
4. LDAP Authentication
5. Multimedia Gallery
6. Google Maps

I currently use Webtrees (http://webtrees.net).

Is it possible for Synology or a 3rd party enthusiast to make a package for Webtrees (webtrees.net)?

This appears to be one of the better and free Family Tree applications out there.

With some of the Synology community support maybe it can be brought to a new level of superiority by including LDAP and other features provided by the DS NAS.

Thanks

It would be very simple to create a package for this, but installation is easy (just extract webtrees into your web folder), so what additional benefits would you expect from having a package?

After reading this thread yesterday I had installed the tool within 15 minutes.
The biggest problem is to figure out the best way to add all the information.
So I someone has tips to add my familie tree until the year 1325 that I have documented in a word document until now.

Depends on how you have it written down in the document.

If you edit it into a textfile/csv file, it might be possible to import it somehow.
But when you should really have had a .GED file with all the data inside, and import that into the family tree package/addon.
Most genealogy softwares and packages have support for .GED database files.

In many cases it is easier to just add them again one by one. Spend a few weeks with that, and at the same time you have the possibillity to doublecheck if you find problems in the old document file.

Yes, I have done the install and it is easy.
The benefits of a package is the one-click update option.

A mobile app for ios and android would be a nice addition as well for on the go updating.

Did you ever get an answer to your question? If you are still interested I found a package that runs very nicely on a Synology DIsk Station. The software is called TNG and it works really great although I'm still learning. They have pretty good instructions but there are a couple of things you need to do on the NAS to make it work.

I am writing currently step by step instructions for the installation. Let me know...

I updated the instructions but did not want to rewrite everything in a post. It's a lot easier to point to my website.

I just added changing file permissions with DSM 6.0.2 instead of using third party software.

Hi Steve

Great instructions. There are a couple of extra fields when seting up DSM to point to TNG Web Page.

You have to choose between NGINX and Apaches (I chose the latter - not sure if that was the correct choice)

You have to select PHP

I am in the process of installing TNG Family Tree. In fact I have, and it was easy but as a non techie a package would be nice just to smooth out the installation process.

But now I want to take it to another level by integrating TNG and WordPress (for which there is a plugin and a set of instructions that are bewildering to me. I even see some references to some work being needed at the command line. Whoa! I do NOT want to go there - far too dangerous in my hands...

An installer for this integration would be magic!

You are correct as php must be enabled so I will add this to the instructions.

I choose Apache as well because I am not as familiar with the nginx commands. Apache has updated from version 2.2 to 2.4 and php 5.6 to 7.0. I am still using Apache 2.2. At the time I wrote the instructions, the WordPress version used by Synology did not support php 7.0. I will have to check the latest update to see if php 7.0 is compatible.

(Update - I just tried to use WordPress with php 7.0 and it is not working. I have the same options enabled in php 7.0 (including SQL support) and the newest Synology WordPress update)

I did not use the TNG plugin to integrate with WordPress due to problems when I tried the install plus I have separate logins. There are a other ways to accomplish integration but the Kloosterman method worked best for me. You can read his instructions at http://www.kloosterman.be/info/faq-tng/

Currently TNG does not have a template that works directly inside WordPress so I copied template 1 into a new directly and modifed a few things to get the look I wanted. I did not try this with other templates. Integration requires a basic understanding of php as you need to create a new header file at the very least. Additionally some knowledge about CSS is helpful to get the look you want on your pages.

When you integrate the two, WordPress will use the header (and footer) file you create and a WordPress permalink to load TNG on a WordPress page. I installed TNG in a sub-folder within WordPress. The reason is for this location is Wordpress permalinks default to the WordPress directory. I did not want to mess with changing the WordPress code to point somewhere else.
