OrangeHRM Releases Version 2.4.2 of Open Source HRM

New OrangeHRM Version 2.4.2

SEACAUCUS, NJ (June 18, 2009) - OrangeHRM, a leading provider of open-source HR Management solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises worldwide, is delighted to announce the newest stable version of its product: OrangeHRM 2.4.2.

The new version comes to make the installation easier for the all range of users.

In the past, when installing OrangeHRM, its installer creates the required MySQL database. For this, OrangeHRM requires MySQL administrator user details. But you don't get MySQL administrator user details from shared web hosts. So, if you wanted to install OrangeHRM in your shared web hosting account, you have to install it manually which can be a tedious task if you are not tech savvy.

"We got many requests regarding this issue and we addressed it in version 2.4.2 to make the user life easier", says Sujee Saparamadu, Co-Founder and CEO of OrangeHRM, adding that OrangeHRM is always looking into new ways to make the installation and usability easier and more efficient.

With the 2.4.2 version, you can use an already created empty MySQL database at OrangeHRM installer. If you have MySQL administrator user access, you can still let OrangeHRM create the database for you. We have provided a method to switch between these two methods where OrangeHRM installer asks database details.

In addition to this, OrangeHRM have made some security enhancements in 2.4.2. We have also added automated upgraders for version 2.2.2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.4.0.1 and 2.4.1. You can download OrangeHRM 2.4.2 and update it. OrangeHRM hopes its stable version 2.4.2 will bring you a better and enhanced experience till the awaited version 2.5 be released.
