Love The Freebies!

Year end is always a big push for me to clean up my bookmarks and notes and organizational methods. I look at what’s working, what isn’t and what needs to be tweaked.

Who doesn’t like starting a new year off fresh, organized and all the work caught up and raring to go forward with the new opps?

This week I’ll be pounding out a few blog posts with resources and links I’m in the midst of organizing. Enjoy ;).

To Do List And Task Management PHP Script – Free!

Take a look at the goody I found:


It’s free and open source, php/mysql, hosted on your own server (I installed it on my private domain) and is clean, simple and visually appealing.

You can organize your tasks by deadline, by project, by priority, etc., and it’s a snap to use.

You can view the online demo here and screencap here.

Since I’m not all that techy, I had to fool around a bit to get it installed (instructions were fine – just I use cpanel and phpMyAdmin and not MySQL command line stuff :???:).

Here are the simple steps in tech dummy language (for the MySQL install):

  • Create a database and database user (as you normally do)
  • Edit the config file (just edit your database name, database username & database password). Save.
  • Create a folder on your domain (ex. taskfreak) and upload all files (remember to uncompress files)
  • CHMOD the taskfreak folder to 755
  • Run yourdomainnameDOTcom/taskfreak/install/taskfreak_init.sql
  • Delete install folder
  • Load yourdomainnameDOTcom/taskfreak
  • Voila! Play around and get familiar with the features

You can also create projects and tasks in different areas such as Work, Internet, Home, etc.

First thing on my To Do list is to add all my projects, ideas & To Do’s 😆
