NeoInvoice has finally been shut down. Scroll down and look through the Related Posts if you would like an understanding of the history of the project.

This video is of me going over the features of NeoInvoice. This is just in case the project is never built again, I’ll still have a copy of this video to describe how everything worked. Below is a bunch of screenshots of the different features the app has to offer.

    Sorry to hear you did not manage to get money out of your project.
    The GUI is really impressive, and if you manage to create some buzz around it, now that it is open source, i’m pretty sure you will get:
    – 1 – people to help you improve the project,
    – 2 – potential user to make donation for getting new features implemented!
    There is a real business model behind open source project!
    Keep it up! :)

  2. André

    Maybe you should consider a donation button as Kevin said. Looking at the screenshots I found it a really nice interface and I think you can still try to make some money from it… :)

    Greetings from El Salvador

    Mis felicitaciones Thomas. Cualquiera que valore tu trabajo y lo pueda aplicar estoy seguro que se matricularà con su donativo.
    Una consulta. Serà complicado implementarlo en una plataforma Windows con apache, PHP y MySql..?

    Hola ojala me puedan ayudar:
    luego de instalar la aplicación con compserver y me carga la pantalla de presentación pero al tratar de crear una cuenta simplemente no entra y lo que despliega el browser es el nombre del archivo index.php y nada mas, por favor su ayuda

  21. john

    Hello I hope you can help me:
    After installing the application compserver and I load the splash screen but when trying to create an account just does not fit and what the browser displays the file name is index.php and nothing else, please your help

    • Thomas Hunter

      The twitter feature was disabled in the source code as the account is no longer active.

      I’m really not sure what your problem is, please describe it in more detail.

      This is a heavy application, it’s not meant for beginners. You may have to do more research on how Apache and PHP works.

      Also, I’m not sure if it runs under Windows.

      • john

        Thanks, The problem is that on the home screen shows a “disable” to the right as shown in the screen to attach, there is also the / login and register that name when trying to create the accounts

        thank you very much in advance

        • john

          the directory does not exist /login and /register that name when trying to create the accounts

          thank you very much in advance

          • Thomas Hunter

            They don’t need to exist; the .htaccess file will redirect the users request to the proper location.

            You’re going to need to research mod_rewrite (I’m assuming wamp uses apache), and figure out how to get that .htaccess file to work.

    muy buen aporte, un gran sistema….disculpa no puedo conectarla base de datos estoy probando bajo windows espero tu ayuda gracias

    • Erik

      very good contribution, a great system …. sorry I can not connect database am testing under Windows I hope your help thanks

  23. eze

    Pude hacer andar el sistema en modo localhost en un windows7, solo tienen que habilitar el mod_rewrite on localhost en el arhcivo de la carpeta (C:\AppServ\Apache2.2\conf) archivo httpd.conf lo abren con un bloc de notas y
    le sacan el # a esta linea #LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

  24. camilo

    You can install this software on a server hosting?, and copy the files to the root folder and the database created and modified the file conf.php. I get the following error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘:’ in /home/u569242811/public_html/application/helpers/generic_helper.php on line 144

    Here is my report on installing NeoInvoice on Ubuntu Server via VMWare Player, hope that helps:

    Install memcache:
    sudo apt-get install php5-memcache
    sudo apt-get install memcached

    Add to php.ini:
    Restart Apache

    If you get a 403 error:
    mod_rewrite requires
    Options +FollowSymLinks


    display_errors = On
    sql.safe_mode = Off

    Warning fopen(system/cache/xxx.pdf): failed to open stream: Permission denied

    chmod 777 /neoinvoice/public/system/cache/

    email sending never end, no error

    First, install sendmail;
    Then, change /etc/hosts to .local
    This corrects the sendmail WARNING: local host name () is not qualified;

    Does not work with Firefox, use Chrome!
