            Project Status
            This project has not been abandoned. I got hired for a part-time job, and between that, school, and other projects, I simply haven't had much time to work on ASM. I've resumed work, and 0.9.5 should be out during the summer.

            As for the documentation, as I stated before, I have not had time to write full documentation yet. This WILL be in v1.0.

            As for the comment about the dangers of running a bash script to install the software, I fail to see the danger. When you compile a GNU project, normally you start with ./configure. This is a bash script. If you are worried about security, well, look at the source first...

            On that topic, it is GPL. I don't see how there's any confusion over the license. It has *always* been licensed under the GPL.

            neikous.com was owned by a friend of mine, and I hosted the web site for him and helped him run it. He failed to renew the domain name and when it dropped, it was registered by a search engine. ASM was moved to www.acctmgr.com before that, anyway. All freshmeat links should point to the new URL.

            To remove the software, delete the directory in which you installed it. That's as simple as it is. It doesn't create symlinks or config files outside of that install tree.

            To login as administrator, you must login to the admin panel. This is located at /admin/ in the web root. Many people have tried logging in to the main system as root, that does not work. That is only for users. Admins have a separate system.

            If anyone has any problems, you can email me at brandon@kindabored.com. Since I haven't logged in to freshmeat in 5 months, I just now changed my freshmeat email address.

            Attempted to take your advice.
            www.neikous.com doesn't seem to exist.
            Further, it would also appear that this
            project might be abandoned. :-/ Too
            bad, it appeared, alot went into this.
            What a shame.

            Would documentation in a *generalized*
            format be unthinkable? There is a plan,
            isn't there? No offence, but it's mighty
            frusterating to run a script *hoping*
            everything will work as intended. Only
            to find out it doesn't. Further, those
            willing to *test* this application will be
            your best degugers and actually have
            something *useful* to contribute
            in your mentioned Forum(s).

            acctmgr 0.9.4 broken...
            To those interested in experiences with this project
            at it's current state. Mine has been poor. There is no
            documentation (about 12 lines of text that indicate
            all you need to do is type bash bin/install - you're done.).
            As this project indicates it's aimed at IT's/ ISP's and the
            likes. I don't think I have to say that *blindly* running
            bash against a script is the kind of stuff that'll give you
            nightmares and bring on a cold sweat in a hurry! There's
            *apparently* MySQL support - I say apparently, as there's
            a module to add a connection and build tables w/ it. However
            no text on it (requires opening it in yer text editor). Anyhow,
            after reading the script(s) and *daring* to take a chance. I
            was left with a new application on one of my machines and
            unable to use it - it didn't work. I grepped as much info out of
            everything as I could and found no solution. I was unable
            to logon as administrator after the installation. It's error log
            was filling *rapidly* one of the errors mentioned something
            about an error on line 80. As I write this, that's as much as
            I recall.
            In it's defense, it is still in alpha. So I knew I was taking
            a chance. I don't want to sound too indignant about all
            this. I simply wanted to share my experience(s) with it
            thus far. In hopes that those without the time to really
            mess with this might be spared any un-necessary greif
            and for others who are curious, might feel a little more
            informed.

            Now, I have to figure out how to remove this.

            Best wishes and good luck,
