BambooInvoice web-based invoicing application
If you want your business to run smoothly, deploying a dependable invoicing solution should be among your top priorities. BambooInvoice offers a user-friendly, web-based invoicing solution.
As a freelancer or a small business owner, you might be tempted to use a Calc spreadsheet or a Writer template to generate and manage invoices, but a dedicated invoicing application can save you a lot of time and frustration in the long run. If installing, configuring, and learning to use an invoicing application sounds like a daunting proposition to you, then BambooInvoice  is what you need (Figure 1).
BambooInvoice is a PHP/MySQL-based application, so you need a machine running the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack. If you don't have the time or necessary skills to set up the stack yourself, your best option is to use the XAMPP package , which comes with all the required components preconfigured and ready to run.
Installing BambooInvoice with XAMPP running on your machine is not difficult. To start, create the bambooinvoice database. To do this, you can use the phpMyAdmin tool bundled with XAMPP. Then download the latest version of BambooInvoice, unpack the downloaded archive, and move the resulting bambooinvoice folder to the htdocs directory in the XAMPP installation.
