LSMremote is an easy web/mobile interface of your Lab Service Manager for your client accessible through your own URL.

To install LSM remote, download the ZIP file from the Client Area. Unzip this folder in the folder of your choice.

Then rename the config_installl.ini in this folder to be config.ini and edit the file.

Note: ensure you that in php.ini, extension=php_soap.dll is enabled (php.ini is found in a path like this for Windows – C:\Program Files (x86)\AgileBio\LabCollector\php\). Remember to restart the LabCollector Server Manager for this change to take effect.
