Seat Mode:
QMX will set Ticket Tag Name Current Seat and the rest of the process happen in SambaPOS. Detailed automation will be posted later.

It has nice and clean order list for the seat you are working on only and when exit seat mode all orders will show on ticket.

#10

Am I correct that QMX for use in the venue(for waiters and such) rather than over the internet(that is for remote end user ordering)?


#11

-QMX setup
-error msg appears upon running

-figure it is due to the SQL Server 2014 Express being outdated
-try to download SQL Server 2016 Express as suggested by QMcKay but MS seems to have deleted the link and force me to download the 2017. Anyone using the 2017? Any issue? Just want to be safe before upgrading to 2017.

Thanks


#12

Q tested it and it works fine


#13

The requirements are clearly outlined on the Download page. SQL 2016 is one of them.

And I don’t expect there to be any issues.

You can no longer download 2016, but if you search for 2016 SP1 there is a download for that. My suggestion would be to just go for 2017 instead.


Once you have upgraded, the other message at the top is saying you need to install the Configuration Task and then execute it in SambaPOS. There are installation instructions on the Website as well that explain this. Configuration Task(s) are installed via QMX-Server (the icon to the right of the DB icon), then they need to be executed in SambaPOS. Only 1 of the Tasks is required, while the others are optional.


#14

Heads Up, site QMXCode.com seems to have been down.


#15

Yes, thank you, resolving that now.

EDIT: back up!


#16

qmxcode.com appears down again


#17

Right now Q host it from his home and internet there is not stable he live on island :wink:

@QMcKay maybe you should do leave DNS, name server at domain registrar and route (A record) to server IP address.
maybe set A record
@, www to your home
www2 to other backup IP

BTW: forum server is working, you can go forum.customsolution.net


#18

HI @QMcKay if it helps I do have a server and am Happy to let you host your site from there at no cost. Let me know if you want to go ahead with it. More than happy to help.

Edit: Its not a dedicated server but I can have multiple websites hosted and more than happy for you to use it.


#19

@QMcKay HI mate seems to be the forum is down again.


#20

I can personally attest to the AWESOME power of this creation. It is driving my entire store (a much earlier display) and I have integrated a few things like CC processing. It’s freakin incredible, takes SambaPOS 5 to the next level.


#21

Hi,
I did not receive email to confirm registration on GMX forum. SO i post this issue here.
when i login, the user validating is not finish.


I click on Main menu and POS1 button then got this issue
test
The database is compatible-level 130 with QMX


#22

The client is not meant to be run within the QMX-Server interface. You should copy the client URL (ie. http://192.168.0.2:3000/QMX/ or http://192.168.0.2:3000/QMX/ and paste it into the Address Bar of your Browser (Chrome, FF, etc). I will change that in next release so clicking on those links is not allowed. In any case…

Is the name of your Server computer actually really “ADMIN”? Just curious.


If USER Validation does not finish, nothing will work properly. So we need to try to figure out why the PIN validation is not working.

Did you install and execute the “Main” Configuration Task in SambaPOS and then restart the Message Server Service (or restart the Server computer)?

Check the content of the DB configuration file:

C:\QMX\www\zconfigs\config_db.php

… and change the Driver to see if that works:

$db_driver = '{ODBC Driver 13 for SQL Server}';
