Using a SQL hotel database server
Working with Lodgit Desk from multiple computers at the same time?
Using a database server is the solution for that! This method lets you access the same database from different computers over the same wired local network; letting you simultaneously make bookings, create invoices, check in guests and more.
Multi user mode - work with Lodgit Desk from multiple computers on the same network
Easy Hotel Server Setup
For multi-user use, Lodgit Desk works together with the database server cubeSQL.
This system is easy to install on an ordinary Windows, Macintosh or Linux computer in your local network. It also allows you to obtain a free license for up to two concurrent connections! For more than two connections, inexpensive licenses can be purchased from the provider SQLabs.
Tip: The cubeSQL server uses so little resources that you can use this server application on one of your existing computers that you work with every day.
Although the installation is very simple, we also offer detailed step by step instructions available to download as a PDF file. This also provides instructions on how to set up the backup function, as well as answering the most frequently asked questions our clients have asked about the server.
What's important is that the computer running cubeSQL always remains switched on whenever you work with Lodgit Desk. This is because all users, regardless if they're on a Windows computer or a mac, will be accessing the same Lodgit database that's stored on the cubeSQL server.
Simple Migration: Easy to Switch Over to
After having installed and configured the server on a computer in your local network, you can easily switch Lodgit Desk over from single to multi user mode (and thus making use of the server) with the click of one button. If there is no database present on the server yet, you'll be able to upload your current work database.
After that you can use any computer in your local network where Lodgit Desk is installed - be it a Windows machine or a Mac - to access your database.
The connection to the database server is an optional add-on module for Lodgit Desk, which you can add to your existing license at any time. The activation of this module can be ordered from our Online Shop. Afterwards this module will remain permanently activated in your license - so you won't face any future charges for it when renewing your license.
