A1.1.1 Installation


For system requirements see Annex 1.1.11 below, for hardware requirements see Annex 1.4. The 'Installation CD' is explained in Annex 11.


Installation summary:


  • LUPMIS installation runs in 4 steps. On a new computer, run all 4 steps as administrator.
  • Boot between each step.
  • For the xampp installation (step 1), at 'XAMPP Options' check to 'Install MySQL as service'
  • After the Map Maker installation (step 2), register Map Maker as a full license.

- - - - -


There are 3 installation versions of LUPMIS :

- Standard installation with full LUPMIS software, Map Maker, xampp/MySQL, Manual, utility and

support software, Ghana data for a full installation (1 file lupmis _ installation.exe, some 800 MB)

- Same with full report set (5-8 GB)

- 'LUPMIS core ' for minor updates (only if recently a full version was installed ),

without support software, Manual, data (lupmis.exe, some 100 MB)


LUPMIS
Tools can refer to the LUPMIS database either as stand-alone (on virtual server) or on a LAN or WAN or Internet (servers). The reference can be choosen anytime when LUPMIS is started. This installation chapter describes the process to install LUPMIS Tools and its support software on a stand-alone or on a LAN server.


A1.1 Full Installation and Configuration

Target to run LUPMIS like any other information system is to:

  • Enable all TCPD offices to work in a structured way,

  • Have coordinated and synchronized activities following national standards,

  • Share and exchange experiences,

  • Enable technology transfer and training and

  • Give each other technical assistance.


It is therefore recommended that all TCPD offices working with GIS / LUPMIS have a standardized, identical LUPMIS and Map Maker configuration.

Initialization files have been created to ease the set-up of LUPMIS. Request these files from TCPD-HQ-GIS Section.

The following description is for Windows 7 (very similar for Windows 8, Vista, XP). The installation has to be done in 'real' administrator mode. After installation, LUPMIS can be run in any user account. Similarly, updates can be done from any user account later. Check first, if your system is virus-protected (see Annex 20.4).


A1.1.1 Installation

The installation is a 4-step process:


Step 0 (Preparation):


Step 0.1:
Open the computer in real administrator mode, not as part of the administrators group.

If you are the sole user, under one account established on the computer, you are not running the system as full administrator. Action:
Windows 'Start' > At 'Search Programs and Files', type: Command Prompt > Right-click mouse button: Run as administrator >



> In the black 'Administrator....' window, type: Net user administrator /active:yes > Enter



A message will confirm, that the operation was successful ('The command completed successfully').


Windows 8: Desktop > Screen corner > Search > Type: CMD > Right-mouse > Run as administrator > Possibly, enter administrator password > and continue as described above.

Step 0.2: Reboot (
Restart) and log in to the new real administrator account.

Windows 8: Click on user account name > administrator

Step 0.3: If you have set up a real administrator account as in step 0.1 above: Set password protection as follows: Windows 'Start' > Control Panel > User Accounts > Change your Windows password > Create a password for your account

Step 0.4: If you have previously installed (or attempted to install) xampp or Apache, it might be possible, that MySQL is running as services. This is ok.


Step 0.5: Copy the file lupmis_installation.exe to your system, e.g. to your folder C:\Temp.




Step 0 is now complete.

- - - - -

Step 1:

Step 1.1: Install xampp with MySQL: Run lupmis_installation.exe (e.g. from C:\Temp) > (It might take a few minutes, before it fires up) >  
Next > Select 'Step 1: Installation of xampp for MySQL' > Next





For users outside LUPMIS:
To install xampp, run the installation file downloaded from xampp homepage (As of October 2012, best experience with xampp-win32-1.8.0-VC9-installer.exe).


According to your security and firewall settings, following menu might ask to allow access:



> English > OK >



According to your Windows version, a warning has to be approved: OK



> Next >




> Next >




Installation as 'Service': By default, the top 2 options are ticked, while the bottom 3 options are unticked.

> Tick also the box 'Install MySQL services' (see step 3 of Application, A 1.1.2).

> Install >



This will run a few minutes:



> No > OK >






If the xampp control panel pops up, you can close it.

Step 1.2: Reboot (
Restart) and log in again as real administrator.

(Step 1 is now complete).

- - - - -

Step 2:

Step 2.1: Install Map Maker: Run again lupmis_installation.exe (e.g. from C:\Temp) >
Next > Select 'Step 2: Installation of Map Maker' > Next




A few menus for the actual Map Maker installation will pop up. Follow the screen instructions to proceed.








After step 2.1, Map Maker is installed. If you now run Map Maper for the first time, it is recommended to register your license:
To permanently unlock Map Maker Pro, enter the licence number here > Enter your user name and licence key, procured from Map Maker




Step 2.2: Reboot (
Restart) and log in again as administrator.

(Step 2 is now complete).

- - - - -

Step 3:

Step 3.1: Install LUPMIS and base data: Run again lupmis_installation.exe (e.g. from C:\Temp) >
Next > Select 'Step 3: Installation / update of LUPMIS' > Next




Optional step 3.2:
If you have the Supplement LUPMIS DVD of LUPMIS Reports, copy all folders to your C:\LUPMIS\LUPMISReports folder. This contains all documents (reports) for land use planning in Ghana, which form part of the LUPMIS archive.


Step 3.3: Reboot


Step 4:

Step 4.1: Install GDAL libraries for image processing: Run again lupmis_installation.exe (e.g. from C:\Temp) > Next > Select 'Step 4: Installation of GDAL library' > Next

Step 4.2: It is recommended to close the administrator mode, which you opened in step 0.1 (above) in a very similar way.

Action: Windows 'Start' > At 'Search Programs and Files', type: Command Prompt > Right-click mouse button: Run as administrator > (see screenshot under step 0.1)
> In the black 'Administrator....' window, type: Net user administrator /active:no > Enter
A message will confirm, that the operation was successful ('The command completed successfully').


Step 4.3: Reboot


Step 4.4: It is strongly recommended to set up your user account display in Windows:

Set the date format to dd/MMM/yy (
Windows 'Start' > Control Panel > Clock, language, and region > Change the date, time, or number format > Customize the format > Daate > Short date: dd-MMM-yy > Long date: dd MMMM, yyyy > OK > Apply > OK > Ok) and:

Enable the show of extensions in Windows Explorer (
in Windows Explorer > Alt on keyboard > Tools > Folder options > View > Untick: Hide extensions for known file types > Apply > Apply to Folders > OK).

Running LUPMIS the first time, base data will be loaded and you will be asked to register an administrator account and to define your home  District:


  • The first user ('installer') has by default the right of a local administrator. He has to register with his user name and his password. He is authorized to register other users as specific users (with full permissions, for data entry, or data retrieval for planning or for revenue tasks) or as other local administrators.

The local administrator(s) can delete a user account, but can not see or reset a user password. This can be done only by the individual user. If a user forgets his/her password, the account has to be deleted and re-created. If the sole local administrator forgot his/her password, a key file has to be sent to HQ for re-configuration.

  • Then:


  • Wait, till the full opening screen appears under the menu bar appears (might take 2 or 3 minutes):



  • For the definition of your home District, follow the screen instructions, for example:

Main menu > Utilities > Latitude and Longitude utilities > Edit projection > Choose map projection window: Delete all existing projections, except ‘UTM 30’  > OK
Main menu > File > System set up > Preferences > Set up window: Default projection > Projection system > Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) > UTM zone 30 > OK


A1.1.5 System requirements of LUPMIS

Minimum system requirements of running Map Maker are very small (512 kB RAM, 20 MB of free harddisk space, with Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8).

To run LUPMIS without major problems and in a multitasking environment, it is recommended to have 2 GB RAM, at least 10 GB of originally free harddisk space (depending on the amount and type of data), and to have Windows Vista or 7 or 8 installed.


A1.1.6 Uninstall Map Maker

To uninstall Map Maker, you have to:

  • Use the Uninstall option of Map Maker, or through the Control Panel, then

  • Delete all remaining folders:

C:\Map Maker
C:\Users\(current account name)\AppData\Map Maker (in Vista) or C:\Documents and Settings\(current account name)\Application Data\Map Maker (in XP), then
Delete all entries in the registry (with regedit from Window’s run command)


A1.1.7 Install District logo


You should have your District's logo appear on all maps, permits, revenue Demand Notices and site plans: Resize your logo to size of 472 x 472 pixels and save it in following formats and locations:

  • As BMP file District_logo_xxxx.bmp (where xxx = name of your District, as installed in LUPMIS, e.g. District_logo_Dodowa.bmp) in folder C:\ LUPMIS \ LUPMISPrograms \ GraphicSupport


  • As JPG file District_logo_xxxx.jpg (e.g. District_logo_Dodowa.jpg) in the same folder C:\ LUPMIS \ LUPMISPrograms \ GraphicSupport ,
