I couldn't find much info on this wonderful mod so I figured we could start a thread on installing and making it work. Although mod installation is common sense for a lot of ya'll, it can be a bit intimidating for us new users.

Download DMS from here:

Uncompress the tar file using an application that can read "tar" files. Winrar is a great app for this. WinZip will not work.

After uncompressing, copy the "dms" folder to /xoopsinstallation/modules.

Next, select the Administration Menu | System Admin | Modules. At the bottom of this page, you'll see the DMS module. Select the install button to add the module to your installation.

Configuring DMS
Select the DMS module for your admin | modules page and the following menu items appear:

Document Properties - I have no idea what this is.
Document Repository - used to configure storage path on your server.
Document Templates - I have no idea what this is.
Full Text Search - may be broken atm
Interface Settings - used to give the DMS module a title.

The most common problem I see posted is not being able to upload a file.
This is caused by at least two issues:
- The folder path is incorrect.
Remember to use the full path of your server. Such has: /home/user/public_html/xoops/doc_upload.

- Incorrect Permissions on the upload director. The directory must be set to 775 in order to upload to it.

I hope all this is right, please correct me if I said anythign wrong. Im going to play with it some more and see what I can find out.
