SmartTables builds on top of the Pathway Tools web accounting system, as such, it requires a mysql database to be set up to store the account and SmartTables data. To do this:

  1. Review Chapter 10.8 of the UserGuide under the Help menu.
  2. Create a mysql database with appropriate database permissions that allows the account to create tables
  3. Edit the User-Account-RDBMS-* parameters in the ptools-init.dat file to correspond to the account created in step #1.
  4. Set the WWW-Enable-Groups Y in ptools-init.dat config file.
  5. Start Pathway Tools in lisp mode and evaluate (init-st-db) at the EC prompt.
  6. Restart in web mode
  7. Create a web account and log in
  8. SmartTable enabled features of the website should not be active.
