2.4.2 Is Out with Support to Shared Web Hosting

Posted in General  by admin 3 Comments

For the ease of users, when installing OrangeHRM, its installer creates the required MySQL database. For this OrangeHRM requires MySQL root details. But you don’t get MySQL root details from shared web hosts. So, if you wanted to install OrangeHRM in your shared web hosting account, you have to install it manually which can be a tedious task if you are not tech savvy.

We had got many requests regarding this issue and we addressed it in version 2.4.2. Now you can use an already created empty MySQL database at OrangeHRM installer. If you have MySQL root access, you can still let OrangeHRM create the database for you. We have provided a method to switch between these two methods where OrangeHRM installer asks database details.

In addition to this, we have made some security enhancements in 2.4.2. We have also added automated upgraders for version, 2.3, 2.4, and 2.4.1. You can download OrangeHRM 2.4.2 here and update instructions are available here. We hope OrangeHRM stable version 2.4.2 will bring you a stable and enhanced experience till we release much awaited version 2.5.

We’re considering some enhancements to the OrangeHRM Leave Module to make it more user-friendly and more useful for large organizations. Please have a look and share your thoughts with us.

Leave Accrual

We have received many requests to have automatic leave accrual based on rules, in addition to the manual allocation of leave OrangeHRM has now. The challenge is to define the requirements in a way that can accommodate different types of rules in different organizations.

Carrying Forward Leave

Another popular request has been to introduce ability to carry forward leave to the next leave period according to rules.
