phpVMS Questions & Help Thread

phpVMS Questions and Help Thread

phpVMS is the most popular virtual airline administration software on Infinite Flight. However, due in part to its age and part to it’s complexity it is not the easiest software to manage. This thread is designed as a central place to ask myself and other tech-savvy forum members for help setting up, maintaining and modifying phpVMS.

I know where you can find a system identical to the one in the picture 🤓


It’s called the Qantas Virtual Group Crew Centre.

Probably because it is exactly that.


Customisation through the coding.


I’ve struggled with one thing, this being getting the schedules to appear on the screen I’ve got everything else except for that of the schedule screen working, I’m a new member so I can’t pm however I’ve done this to make it for myself and friends

You’re not the only one with that issue. Strange. Have you set days of week to all for all schedules?

Yes and in following I’ve got it normally but with the crew center skin my schedule page doesn’t appear like I’m fine with it cause me and the guys can easily know what flights are in the system, but we just can’t seem to get that function of phpvms with the crew center skin to work

How did you import your schedules? CSV?

No, we entered in the schedules via the admin tools

Hmmm ok. Strange, anyone else who had this issue manage to resolve it?

The only issue is that of the skin, I believe it has something to do with the skins files, but that is by my guess I’m not 100% sure

@KaiM I am still having trouble with @SahyaQFFlyer because he can’t get to register the crew center won’t even load for him. He has tried everything you have said
