You will now be taken to the database connection stage of the install. This is where you can edit how SimpleRisk connects to your database. For a simple setup and for our demonstration the only thing you should need to fill out on this page is the MySQL “Database Pass:” field, once entered you may hit the “Validate Database Credentials” button and it will ensure SimpleRisk is able to make a connection to the database to setup the SimpleRisk user with the least privileged required for the program to function. An example of this page is posted below. 6.

Now that you have setup the SimpleRisk database connection your last step is to setup the SimpleRisk install information and the SimpleRisk configuration information, you do not have to enter or change anything on this page for a standard install. The most important thing to note on this page is that you have 2 checks at the top notifying you that SimpleRisk was able to connect to the database and that STRICT_TRANS_TABLES is not enabled. If everything looks correct you may click the install button. An example of this page is posted below. If everything was installed correctly you will be taken to a page that looks like the image below.

Your final step for setting up the database will be to click the update button and you will have completed your SimpleRisk installation. Next we will cover logging in to your instance. Logging in to SimpleRisk You should now have performed all of the steps you need to for SimpleRisk to be up and running. Now is the moment of truth where we hopefully get to see if all of your hard work paid off. You now need to point your web browser to the URL where SimpleRisk would be installed.

Enter username “admin” and password “admin” to get started. Then, select the “Admin” dropdown at the top right and click on “My Profile”. Enter your current password as “admin” and place a new long and randomly generated password into the “New Password” and “Confirm Password” fields. Then click “Submit”. You should receive a message saying that your password was updated successfully. If so, then this is your new “admin” password for SimpleRisk. If you received a message saying that “The password entered does not adhere to the password policy”, you can change the policy by selecting “Configure” from the menu at the top followed by “User Management” on the left side. You will see a “Password Policy” section at the bottom of the page where you can change the

policy and try changing your password again. Registering SimpleRisk This step is completely optional, but without it upgrades of SimpleRisk will require manual downloads of the new version, backing up your configuration file, extracting the new files, restoring the configuration file, and a database upgrade. It sounds like more effort than it really is, but we’ve made the process far simpler if you’re willing to tell us who you are.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
