This class can generate PHP scripts that, when executed, they extract information built-in the scripts to install files and MySQL databases.

This class can be used to install all the files and databases of a site or an application. It is recommended when you need to distribute an application or even a whole site that is going to be installed by other people.

The class can collect all the site files recursively from a given directory.

It can also query a MySQL database and generate an SQL statements to create the database schema and the information in the rows of the base installation database.

In Portuguese:

Esta classe pode pegar todos os arquivos que compõem um site ou um aplicativo e se necessário um banco de dados MySQL associado, e o transformam em um único arquivo de instalação.

Esse arquivo de instalação é na verdade um script de PHP com toda a informação a instalar. Esse script deve ser executado no servidor para instalar automaticament o site ou aplicativo.

Esta classe é recomendada para quando a instalação de um site ou aplicativo é feita por terceiros.

When a developer needs to distribute a site or an application that is going to be installed in production servers by other people, he must supply all the documentation and data to be installed in a convenient format.

The documentation must be clear and the steps necessary to install the application must be simple to understand and brief to execute.

Furthermore, the installation process may have to take care with eventual restrictions of the production environment. Sometimes, the person that will install the application cannot have physical access to the production server nor remote shell access.

This class provides a solution that consists on creating a PHP script that can be run as a Web server page. When it is run on the server it can automatically execute several types of actions to perform common installation steps like copying text or binary files and even installing databases and their contents.

This way, the most common steps of installing an application can executed smoothly and without the need of the presence of the original application developer.
