We currently use a system written by our "Head of eLearning" which is coming to an end (I don't know why). I've been trying out all the main ones: mrbs, crbs, erbs.
mrbs: hear a lot of positive things about it, but need documentation! I have it working (although can't get AD intergration to work yet, which I would like) but can't figure out how to set it up . I'm aware there are many threads and threads within threads for mrbs on here, but has anyone compiled any kind of central reserve of documentation?
erbs: I quite like the simplicity but how does the "Use LDAP Authentication" work? It doesn't have any details - server name, account details, AD structure, etc.
crbs: nice system, although it's a shame it doesn't have AD integration. I'm also getting various errors - error if you go past last week, error if you click the "Make Recurring Booking" button. Is v2 imminent? Should I hold off for this? Or is there still support for v1?
Edit: I tried bookit and potentially looks good, but the popup's (logging in etc.) are too annoying.
Edit2: Why oh why can't Liberum make a booking system!
Im using MRBS here, im having problems in locking down new rooms, ive got it hoocked up to our AD and all is fine, but it lets any user in the allowed OU's to log in and book, its got a function to find users in a group and load them as admins, i cant figure out how to modifiy it so i can lock a room down to just maths and admins, or just science and admins extra.
Try SchoolBooking Room & Resource Booking system there is a free version for up to a certain number of users. You can import your timetable and rooms.
Sorry to dig up an old thread.
Recently installed Classroombookingsystem on WAMP (Server 2012) it all seems to work ok except when clicking on the 'bookings' link when I get the following:
A PHP Error was encountered
Message: Trying to get property of non-object
Line Number: 217
Control Panel Logout
Logged in as administrator
Isambard Community School
Room: Trolley 1
A configuration error prevented the timetable from loading: no week configured.
Please contact your administrator.
Any help would be great!
It looks like it should have expected some data, but couldn't find any. It says, "no week configured" - does today's date fall within a configured week? You can check this by going to Week Cycle, and ensuring that the academic year is set up and that a week entry exists for this week.
Ha! I set the academic year starting in September, was expecting the calendar to start then. Thanks, glad it was just me being dumb!
I'm new to WAMP, so if you don't mind me asking: On a client machine I can currently view the WAMP homepage and access all the tools/PHP info but when I try to view the booking system I'm told that the page can't be displayed.
I need help, I've installed it but I cannot get it to work with AD, it wants me to add the users manually and won't see them from AD.
I've been using MRBS for a number of years now, multiple installations on the same webserver, all linked together, bound to AD.
Its perfect for us, highly recommended and I am happy to assist with any installation woes!
Classroombookings does not currently have any LDAP/AD integration, but you can import users in bulk from CSV.

The page you requested was not found.
Which is different from their 404 if the folder or file does not exist.
I gave full 777 permision to it and then the whole foldr (just for testing) but still have the same result.
Do you have any suggestions?
I was putting localhost as hostname but it needed to be the one provided by 1and1 in the mysql section.
Sorry I use MRBS not classroombooking. If you have a DNS and hosting package with 1&1 I would suggest just contacting their technical support, some hosting providers can have background storage/permissions issues that aren't immediately apparent.
Sorry I can't be of more help,
