37
* General: QFQ is coded to run on Linux hosts, preferable on Debian derivates like Ubuntu.
38
39
40
41
* HTML to PDF conversion - command `wkhtmltopdf`.
* Concatenation of PDF files - command `pdftk`.
* Mime type detection for uploads - command `file`.

Preparation
-----------

Report & Form
^^^^^^^^^^^^^

In PHP 5.x the QFQ extension needs  the PHP MySQL native driver. The following functions are used and are only available with the
native driver (see also: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/php-mysqlnd/):

* mysqli::get_result (important),
* mysqli::fetch_all (nice to use)

To normalize UTF8 input, the *php5-intl* resp. *php7.0-intl* package is needed by

* normalizer::normalize()

61
For the `download`_ function, the programs `pdftk` and `file` are necessary to concatenate PDF files.
62

63
64
Preparation for Ubuntu 14.04::

65
	sudo apt-get install php5-mysqlnd php5-intl
66
67
	sudo apt-get install pdftk file                  # for file upload and PDF
	sudo apt-get install inkscape graphicsmagick     # to render thumbnails
68
69
70
	sudo php5enmod mysqlnd
	sudo service apache2 restart

Preparation for Ubuntu 16.04::
72

73
	sudo apt install php7.0-intl
74
75
	sudo apt install pdftk libxrender1 file pdf2svg  # for file upload, PDF and 'HTML to PDF' (wkhtmltopdf), PDF split
	sudo apt install inkscape graphicsmagick         # to render thumbnails

.. _wkhtml:

80
wkhtmltopdf
^^^^^^^^^^^
81

82
83
`wkhtmltopdf <http://wkhtmltopdf.org/>`_ will be used by QFQ to offer 'website print' and 'HTML to PDF' conversion.
The program is not included in QFQ and has to be manually installed.
84

85
86
87
88
* The Ubuntu package `wkhtmltopdf` needs a running Xserver - this does not work on a headless webserver.

  * Best is to install the QT version from the named website above.
  * In case of trouble with wkhtmltopdf, also install 'libxrender1'.
89
90
  * The current version 0.12.4 might have trouble with https connections. Version 0.12.5-dev (github master branch)
    seems more reliable. Please contact the QFQ authors if you need a compiled Ubuntu version of wkhtmltopdf.
91

92
In `configuration`_ specify the: ::
93

94
95
    cmdWkhtmltopdf=/opt/wkhtmltox/bin/wkhtmltopdf`.
    baseUrl=http://www.example.com/`.
96

97
98
If wkhtml has been compiled with dedicated libraries (not part of LD_LIBRARY_PATH), specify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH together
with the path-filename: ::
99
100

    cmdWkhtmltopdf=LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/wkhtmltox/lib /opt/wkhtmltox/bin/wkhtmltopdf
101

102
103
**Important**: To access FE_GROUP protected pages or content, it's necessary to disable the `[FE][lockIP]` check! `wkhtml`
will access the Typo3 page locally (localhost) and that IP address is different from the client (=user) IP.
104
105

Configure via Typo3 Installtool `All configuration > $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']`: ::
106
107
108

   [FE][lockIP] = 0

109
110
111
**Warning**: this disables an important anti-'session hijacking' protection. The security level of the whole installation
will be *lowered*! Again, this is only needed if `wkhtml` needs access to FE_GROUP protected pages & content. As an
alternative to lower the security level, create a separated page subtree which is only accessible (configured via
112
Typoscript) from specific IPs **or** if a FE-User is logged in.
113

114
115
If there are problems with converting/downloading FE_GROUP protected pages, check `SHOW_DEBUG_INFO = download` to debug.

116
117
118
119
**Important**: Converting HTML to PDF gives no error message but RC=-1? Check carefully all includes of CSS, JS, images
and so on! Typically some of them fails to load and wkhtml stops running!

HTML to PDF conversion
''''''''''''''''''''''

`wkhtmltopdf` converts a website (local or remote) to a (multi)-page PDF file. It's mainly used in `download`_.

Print
'''''

Different browser prints the same page in different variations. To prevent this, QFQ implements a small PHP wrapper
Carsten  Rose's avatar
Carsten Rose committed
129
`print.php` with uses `wkhtmltopdf` to convert HTML to PDF.
130

131
Provide a `print this page`-link (replace 'current pageId' )::
132
133
134
135
136
137
138
139
140

	<a href="typo3conf/ext/qfq/qfq/api/print.php?id={current pageId}">Print this page</a>

Any parameter specified after `print.php` will be delivered to `wkhtmltopdf` as part of the URL.

Typoscript code to implement a print link on every page::

	10 = TEXT
	10 {
141
		wrap = <a href="typo3conf/ext/qfq/qfq/api/print.php?id=|&type=99"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-print" aria-hidden="true"></span> Printview</a>
142
143
144
		data = page:uid
	}

Send Email
^^^^^^^^^^

QFQ sends mail via `sendEmail` http://caspian.dotconf.net/menu/Software/SendEmail/ - a small perl script without a central
configuration.

By default, `sendEmail` uses the local installed MTA, writes a logfile to `typo3conf/mail.log` and handles attachments
via commandline options. A basic HTML email support is implemented.

The latest version is v1.56, which has at least one bug. That one is patched in the QFQ internal version v1.56p1 (see
QFQ GIT sources in directory 'patches/sendEmail.patch').

Nevertheless, on latest system the TLS support is broken - please check sendEmailProblem_.

The Typo3 sendmail eco-system is not used at all by QFQ.

Thumbnail
^^^^^^^^^

Thumbnails will be rendered via GraphicsMagick (http://www.graphicsmagick.org/) 'convert' and 'inkscape' (https://inkscape.org).
'inkscape' is only used for '.svg' files.

The Typo3 grafic eco-system is not used at all by QFQ.
168

Usage: `column-thumbnail`_.

Setup
-----

* Install the extension via the Extensionmanager.

  * If you install the extension by manual download/upload and get an error message
    "can't activate extension": rename the downloaded zip file to `qfq.zip` or `qfq_<version>.zip` (e.g. version: 0.9.1).

  * If the Extensionmanager stops after importing: check your memory limit in php.ini.

181
* Copy/rename the file *<site path>/typo3conf/ext/qfq/config.example.qfq.php* to *config.qfq.php*.
182
183
  Configure the necessary settings `configuration`_
  The configuration file is outside the of extension directory, to not loose it during updates.

184
* When the QFQ Extension is called the first time on the Typo3 Frontend, the file *<ext_dir>/qfq/sql/formEditor.sql* will
185
  played and fills the database with the *Form editor* records. This also happens automatically after each update of QFQ.
186
187
* Configure Typoscript to include Bootstrap, jQuery, QFQ javascript and CSS files.

------------------

271
272
273
274
* Protect the directory `<T3 installation>/fileadmin/protected` in Apache against direct file access.

  * `<T3 installation>/fileadmin/protected/` should be used for confidential (uploaded / generated) data.
  * `<T3 installation>/fileadmin/protected/log/...` is the default place for QFQ logfiles.

275
276
* Protect the directory `<T3 installation>/fileadmin` in Apache to not execute PHP Scripts - malicious uploads won't be executed.
* Setup a log rotation rule for `sqlLog`.
277
278
* Check that `sqlLogMode` is set to `modify` on productive sites. With `none` you have no chance to find out who changed
  which data and `all` really logs a mass of data.

.. _`CustomVariables`:

Custom variables
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
519

520
Up to 30 custom variables can be defined in `configuration`_.
521

522
E.g. to setup a contact address and reuse the information inside your installation do: ::
523

524
525
526
   custom1: ADMINISTRATIVE_CONTACT = john@doe.com
   custom2: ADMINISTRATIVE_ADDRESS = John Doe, Hollywood Blvd. 1, L.A.
   custom3: ADMINISTRATIVE_NAME = John Doe
527
528
529
530
531

 * Somewhere in a `Form` or in `Report`::

      {{ADMINISTRATIVE_CONTACT:Y}}, {{ADMINISTRATIVE_ADDRESS:Y}}, {{ADMINISTRATIVE_NAME}}

532
533
It's also possible to configure such variables directly in `config.qfq.php`_.

A specified SELECT statement in `configuration`_ in variable `fillStoreSystemBySql1` (or `2`,
or `3`) will be fired. The query should have 0 (nothing happens) or 1 row. All columns will be

This option is useful to make generic custom values, saved in the database, accessible to all QFQ Report and Forms.
Access such variables via `{{<varname>:Y}}`.

In case QFQ should stop working if a given query does not select exact one record (e.g. a missing period), define an
error message: ::

549
550
  fillStoreSystemBySql1: SELECT name FROM Person WHERE name='Doe'
  fillStoreSystemBySqlErrorMsg1: Too many or to few "Doe's" in our database
551

This is

559
* a usecase, implemented via `fillStoreSystemBySql`_,
560
* a way to access `Period.id` with respect to the current period (the period itself is custom defined).
561

562
After a full QFQ installation:
563
564
565
566

* a table `Period` (extend / change it to your needs, fill them with your periods),
* one sample record in table `Period`,

567
Websites, delivering semester data, school year schedules, or any other type or periods, often need an index to the
Carsten  Rose's avatar

568
*current* period.
569

570
In configuration_: ::
571

572
	fillStoreSystemBySql1: SELECT id AS periodId FROM Period WHERE start<=NOW() ORDER BY start DESC LIMIT 1
573

576
577
578
579
580
581
582
583
584
585

a variable 'periodId' will automatically computed and filled in STORE SYSTEM. Access it via `{{periodId:Y0}}`.
To get the name and current period: ::

  SELECT name, ' / ', start FROM Period WHERE id={{periodId:Y0}}

Typically, it's necessary to offer a 'previous' / 'next' link. In this example, the STORE SIP holds the new periodId: ::

  SELECT CONCAT('id={{pageId:T}}&periodId=', {{periodId:SY0}}-1, '|Next') AS _Page, ' ', name, ' ', CONCAT('id={{pageId:T}}&periodId=', {{periodId:SY0}}+1, '|Next') AS _Page FROM Period AS s WHERE s.id={{periodId:SY0}}

Take care for minimum and maximum indexes (do not render the links if out of range).

DB USER privileges
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The specified DB User needs privileges to the database of at least: SELECT / INSERT / UPDATE / DELETE / SHOW.

To apply automatically QFQ-'DB UPDATE' the following rights are mandatory too: CREATE / ALTER

To get access to the Typo3 installation, 'dbuser' should also have acces to the Typo3 Database with at least SELECT / INSERT / UPDATE / DELETE.

.. _`ExceptionMaxLength`:

Exception for SECURITY_GET_MAX_LENGTH
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

603
If it is necessary to use a GET variable which exceeds `securityGetMaxLength` limit, name the variable with '_<num>' at
604
the end. E.g. `my_long_variable_130`. Such a variable has an allowed length of 130 chars. Access the variable as
605
606
607
usual with the variable name: `{{my_long_variable_130:C:...}}`.

If you get a 'Page forbidden / not found' there might be some Webserver restrictions. E.g. the Typo3 example of `.htaccess`
in the Typo3 installation folder will forbid access to any extension documentation (which is a good idea on a productive
617
618
server). For a development server instead, deactivate the forbid rule of 'documentation'. In `.htaccess` (snippet from
Typo3 7.6 _.htaccess): ::
619

620
621
  production:   RewriteRule (?:typo3conf/ext|typo3/sysext|typo3/ext)/[^/]+/(?:Configuration|Resources/Private|Tests?|Documentation|docs?)/ - [F]

Concept

630
631
632
SIPs
----

The following is a technical background information. Not needed to just use QFQ.

633
The SIPs (=Server Id Pairs) are uniq timestamps, created/registered on the fly for a specific browser session (=user). Every SIP is
634
635
636
637
638
639
640
641
642
643
644
645
646
647
registered on the server (= stored in a PHP Session) and contains one or more key/value pairs. The key/value pairs never leave
the server. The SIPs will be used:

* to protect values not to be spoofed by anyone,
* to protect values not to be altered by anyone,
* to grant access, e.g.:

  * load and save forms,
  * upload files,
  * download files,
  * PHP AJAX pages.

SIPs becomes invalid, as soon as the current browser session is destroyed. The client (= user) can't manipulate the content
of SIPs - it's only possible to reuse already registered SIPs by the user, who already owns the session.
648
649
650
651
652

Access privileges
-----------------

The Typo3 FE Groups can be used to implement access privileges. Such groups are assigned to
653

654
655
656
657
658
659
660
* Typo3 FE users,
* Typo3 pages,
* and/or Typo3 content records (e.g. QFQ records).

This will be used for general page structure privileges.

A `record base` privileges controlling (e.g. which user can edit
661
662
which person record) will be implicit configured, by the way that records are viewable / editable (or not) through
SQL in the specific QFQ tt-content statements.
663
664
665
666
667
668

Typo3 QFQ content element
-------------------------

Insert one or more QFQ content elements on a Typo3 page. Specify column and language per content record as wished.

669
670
The title of the QFQ content element will not be rendered on the frontend. It's only visible to the webmaster in the
backend for orientation.

QFQ Database
------------

Recommended setup for Typo3 & QFQ Installation is with *two* databases. One for the Typo3 installation and one for QFQ.
A good practice is to name both databases equal, appending the suffix '_t3' and '_db'.

When QFQ is called, it checks for QFQ system tables. If they do not exist or have a lower version than the installed qfq
version, the system tables will be automatically installed or updated.

Multi Database
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
778

779
780
Base: T3 & QFQ
''''''''''''''
781

782
783
QFQ typically interacts with one database, the QFQ database. The database used by Typo3 is typically a separate one.
Theoretically it might be the same (never tested), but it's strongly recommended to use a separated QFQ database to have
784
no problems on Typo3 updates and to have a clean separation between Typo3 and QFQ

QFQ: System & Data
''''''''''''''''''

QFQ itself can be separated in 'QFQ system' (see `system-tables`_) and 'QFQ data' databases (>=1). The 'QFQ system' stores
the forms, record locking, log tables and so on - `QFQ data` is for the rest.

A `Multi Database` setup is given, if 'QFQ system' is different from 'QFQ data'.

Data: Data1, Data2, ..., Data n
'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

797
Every database needs to be configured via `configuration`_ with it's own `index`.
798

799
800
801
`QFQ data` might switch between different 'data'-databases. In configuration_ one main `QFQ data` index will be specified
in `indexQfq`. If specific forms or reports should use a different database than that, `dbIndex` might change
`indexData` temporarily.
802
803

`dbIndex`: A `Report` (field `dbIndex`) as well as a `Form` (field `parameter`.`dbIndex`) can operate on a specific database.
804

805
806
807

A `Form` will:

808
* load the own definition from `indexQfq` (table `Form` and `FormElement`),
809
* loads and save data from/in `indexData` (config.qfq.php) / `dbIndex` (form.parameter.dbIndex),
810
* retrieve extra information via `dbIndexExtra` - this is useful to offer information from a database and save them in a
811
  different one.
812

813
814
The simplest setup, QFQ system & data in the same database, needs no `indexQfq / indexData` definition in
configuration_ or one or both of them set to '1'
815

816
To separate QFQ system and data, indexQfq and indexData will have different indexes.
817
818
819
820
821
822
823


A Multi Database setup might be useful for:

* several independent Typo3 QFQ installations (each have it's own form repository) and one central database, or
* one QFQ installation which should display / load /save records from different databases, or
* a combination of the above two.

* Option 'A' is the most simple and commonly used.
* Option 'B' separate the T3 and QFQ databases on two database hosts.
* Option 'C' is like 'B' but with a shared 'QFQ data'-database between three 'Typo3 / QFQ' instances.
* Further variants are possible.

+---+----------------+--------------+-------------------------------+------------------------------+----------------------------------+

848
In config-qfq-php_ mutliple database credentials can be prepared. Mandatory is at least one credential setup like
849
850
851
`DB_1_USER`, `DB_1_SERVER`, `DB_1_PASSWORD`, `DB_1_NAME`. The number '1' indicates the `dbIndex`. Increment the number
to specify further database credential setups.

852
Typically the credentials for `DB_1`  also have access to the T3 database.
853
854
855
856
857
858


Different QFQ versions, shared database
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

When using different QFQ versions and a shared 'QFQ data'-database, there is some risk of conflicting
859
'QFQ system' tables. Best is to always use the same QFQ version on all instances ot use a Multi Database setup.

* Zero or more stores might be specified to be searched for the given VarName.
* If no store is specified, the by default searched stores are: **FSRVD** (=FORM > SIP > RECORD > VARS > DEFAULT).
* If the VarName is not found in one store, the next store is searched,  up to the last specified store.
1105
1106
* If the VarName is not found and a default value is given, the default is returned.
* If no value is found, nothing is replaced - the string '{{<VarName>}}' remains.
1107
* If anywhere along the line an empty string is found, this **is** a value: therefore, the search will stop.

SQL variables
^^^^^^^^^^^^^

1123
* The detection of an SQL command is case *insensitive*.
* Leading  whitespace will be skipped.
* The following commands are interpreted as SQL commands:
1124

1125
1126
1127
  * SELECT
  * INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, REPLACE, TRUNCATE
  * SHOW, DESCRIBE, EXPLAIN, SET
1128

1129
* A SQL Statement might contain variables, including additional SQL statements. Inner SQL queries will be executed first.
1130
1131
* All variables will be substituted one by one from inner to outer.
* The number of variables inside an input field or a SQL statement is not limited.

Result: string
''''''''''''''

A result of a SQL statement will be imploded over all: concat all columns of a row, concat all rows - there is no
glue string.

Result: row
'''''''''''

A few functionalities needs more than a returned string, instead separate columns are necessary. To indicate an array
result, specify those with an '!': ::

   {{!SELECT ...}}

This manual will specify the individual QFQ elements, who needs an array instead of a string. It's an error to return
a string where an array is needed and vice versa.

Database index
''''''''''''''

1153
1154
1155
1156
1157
To access different databases in a `multi-database`_  setup, the database index can be specified after the opening curly
braces. ::

	{{[1]SELECT ... }}

1158
For using the indexData and indexQfq (configuration_), it's a good practice to specify the variable name
1159
1160
instead of the numeric index. ::

1161
   {{[{{indexData:Y}}]SELECT ...}}
1162

1163
If no dbIndex is given, `{{indexData:Y}}` is used.

Row column variables
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
1182
1183
1184

Syntax:  *{{<level>.<column>}}*

1185
Only used in report to access outer columns. See `access-column-values`_ and `syntax-of-report`_.
1186

1187
1188
There might be name conflicts between VarName / SQL keywords and <line identifier>. QFQ checks first for '<level>',
than for 'SQL keywords' and than for 'VarNames' in stores.
1189
1190
1191

All types might be nested with each other. There is no limit of nesting variables.

1192
1193
Very specific: Also, it's possible that the content of a variable is again (including curly braces) a variable - this
is sometimes used in text templates, where the template is retrieved from a record and
1194
1195
specific locations in the text will be (automatically by QFQ) replaced by values from other sources.

1196
1197
1198
General note: using this type of variables is only the second choice. First choice is `{{column:R}}` (see
`access-column-values`_) - using the STORE_RECORD is more portable cause no renumbering is needed if the level keys change.

.. _`link-column-variables`:

Link column variables
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

These variables return a link, completely rendered in HTML. The syntax and all features of `column-link`_ are available.
The following code will render a 'new person' button::

	{{p:form&form=Person|s|N|t:new person AS link}}

1210
For better reading, the format string might be wrapped in single or double quotes (this is optional): ::
1211
1212
1213
1214
1215
1216
1217
1218
1219

	{{"p:form&form=Person|s|N|t:new person" AS link}}

These variables are especially helpful in:

* `report`, to create create links or buttons outside of a SQL statement. E.g. in `head`, `rbeg`, ...
* `form`, to create links and buttons in labels or notes.
