About this Event

Title: Bradypus: creation and publication of a web-based database

Author: Julian Bogdani

University Sapienza of Rome


Within the conference will be training workshops on "emerging tools and methods in the field of FLOS for archaeology".

The list of workshops and the application form is available here. Don't forget to subscribe to get your place.

Participation is subject to availability among the applications that will be received by October 1, 2020. Each workshop will be activated when the first 7 participants are reached. The timetable of the activated workshops will be published on October 2nd on this page (in any case in the time slot 17-19).



The workshop is a very practical guide to the creation, publication and implementation of complex relational databases on the Web. Bradypus open-source (MIT) software will be used for the management of the database.

Basic knowledge of SQL is encouraged, as well as a rudimentary understanding of the relational model. The workshop will go through the creation of the basic configuration files for a given schema, the downloading of the software from the public repository, the bootstrap of a web server and the (minimal) configuration of user interface.

At the end of the workshop, the attendants will be able to set up a simple-to very complex, multi-user relational database and publish it online. A follow-up might be planed on request two weeks after the workshop as a public session of Q&A. On request, the databases of the attendants will be freely hosted on


Technical requirements

Recommanded configuration: php 7.x (with extensions: pdo, pdo-sqlite, php-mbstring, php-gd), Sqlite, an updated modern browser and internet connection

Optimal configuration: Apache 2.x, php 7.x (with extensions: pdo, pdo-sqlite, pdo-mysql, pdo-pgsql, php-mbstring, php-gd), Sqlite, MySQL (or MariaDB or Percona), PostgreSQL, an updated modern browser, internet connection. “All-in-one” solutions such as MAMP and XAMPP will install these other bits of software for you and tie them all together, but ease of setup comes with a trade-off of flexibility.
