First Time Setup for Online Utilties:

OU runs off of the csv export dumps from OOTP. OOTP can dump almost all of its internal databases to csv files, which can be a massive amoount of files. OU actually only uses a small subset of the csv files, so it is in your best interest to first limit down the export to only those files that OU wants. To do this:
-Go to League Setup screen
-In the bottom right, click the Import/Export button
-Select “Configure data export to CSV files”
-Select the following
 leagues_basic
league_history
sub_leagues
divisions
team_relations
games_basic
games_score
human_managers_basic
players_basic
players_batting
players_pitching
players_fielding
players_player_value
players_career_batting
players_game_batting
players_career_pitching
players_game_pitching
players_career_fielding
players_awards
players_roster_status
teams_basic
teams_financials
team_history_record
team_batting_stats
team_history_batting_stats
team_pitching_stats
team_history_pitching_stats

TO UPDATE REPORTS (After every SIM):

-IMPORTANT NOTE: If you tried to create and upload reports before, but it has failed and you are now trying again: In the commissioner central, report center, do not click Create Report, but click on the “Next Page” button. On the next page click “Reset Time Stamp”. This will ensure that when you create your report it creates a completely fresh one. You should do this any time there is a failure with a report, to ensure the reports stay accurate. Click the “Previous Page” button. Continue with the steps below.
-In commissioner central, report center, select the reports you want for each league.
-Check “Update person pictures if needed” and “Copy and Upload new and changed images” to ensure all pictures on the reports are correct.
-Create Report
-On the next page you have two options:
1) Create an archive, then upload the entire archive. Unfortunately I currently do not have a way for you to extract the archive on the server, so you will need to let me know the file is there and then I can extract it. I recommend this for the first upload, since it will be extra large.
2) Upload the files to the server one by one. This will take longer but the changes will show up on the website immediately. I recommend this for updating after each sim.
-Whichever you choose, be patient while it uploads. I’ve had a couple of timeouts and game freezes during my attempts. Trying again usually worked.
-Click “Log Date and Time”. This is how the game will track changes to the files for future uploads.

TO UPDATE ONLINE UTILTIES: (After every SIM. For additional help see the OOTP OU Readme at http://thefibb.net/getch/ouReadme/)

-Complete the steps to update report, above.

-Go to League Setup screen.
-In the bottom right, click the Import/Export button.
-Select “Export Data to CSV files”.
-This will generate the csv files in the “import_export” directory within you XXXX.lg league folder.
-FTP these files to the /csv folder on the FTP server.
-Performing this action will automatically update some of the OU utilities. However, two utilities require manual action to tell it to update to the new sim: Last Sim and Development
-For Last Sim, you need to go to the Admin screen and click “Generate Report”. See the Last Sim page for more details.
-For Development (if you’ve enabled the utility), you need to go to the Admin screen and click “Generate Development”. See the Development page for more details.
