Upgrade to playSMS v1.3

Recently I announced playSMS 1.2 and 1.2.1 contained a bug that was considered a MAJOR bug. And now the bug has been fixed. I have tested that on my server and it looked alright. I hope anyone using playSMS is as enthusiast as me and be willing to test the fix. Tell you the truth I tested on my own server and haven’t heard from anyone if the fix is also working properly on theirs. But I’m pretty sure it will, that is why I release the latest version, playSMS version 1.3.

Get it from the download page. Installation and upgrade as usual available from playSMS Book Project.

Enjoy.

playSMS v1.2.1 released

Good day everyone. I’ve released the latest version of playSMS, version 1.2.1 a few days ago. This release has some important addition to the earlier release 1.2. I suggest for everyone who already using 1.2 to get this one and upgrade. I know, why so short the distance between version, the answer is because I forgot to update the version number in database ˆˆ, its important.

I also included some more changes and bugfixes in 1.2.1. Upgrading playSMS is easy and documented in playSMS Book, please upgrade :) Thanks.

playSMS in Windows with Gammu

Are you still interested in using playSMS in Windows ?

Well, someone has wrote the manual for you in playSMS Forum. The manual is about installing playSMS in Microsoft Windows with Gammu for Windows as the gateway.

Check it out: https://forum.playsms.org/t/installing-playsms-on-windows/66

Please note that the playSMS in used was pretty old, version 0.9.9.2 or 0.9.8, and unfortunately the manual won’t work for playSMS 1.0.

Example use of SMS Command for Mikrotik

When you have working playSMS with Kannel, and Mikrotik configured to do something (not related to SMS), you can integrate them to serve something to your users. In the article below the author mentioned that the goals are:

  1. To renew expired users via sending Username and SCRATCH CODE to playSMS (Ubuntu Server)
  2. To renew expired users via sending SCRATCH CODE & verify the code with the user profile [later]

Users will be asked to send SMS to playSMS, and playSMS will handle it on its SMS Command to run a script that verify the SMS and commands Mikrotik to do something.
