Journyx is a Timesheet and Expenses application for tracking time, allocating resources and executing projects. It is free to use for up to 10 users. More info on the Journyx website.
The application is designed to run within a users account, and has its own apache web server and postgres database. It cannot be installed as root, and the user name of the account under which it is installed becomes the installing administrative account. It is recommended to create a new specific standard user account specifically for Timesheet. Multiple instances of Timesheet can be run by creating multiple standard users and installing. The apache web server runs on a specific port configured during installation. This can be changed later.
Create a standard user account in SME Server Manager panel, with a meaningful user name. Don't forget this user name becomes the administrative user for the application.
