From within your Loop Server directory:

cd plugins
git clone
cd notifications
cp config/configORIGINAL.json config/config.json
nano config/config.json			[enter your own parameters:
						serverPath is your Loop Server file path.
						apiKey is the Google GCM apiKey.
						staging is true/false for which Loop Server config to use.]
cp pushcertSAMPLE.pem pushcert.pem				[You will need your own Apple push certicate in here]
php install.php

At the user end, the Android/iPhone app at needs to be installed (this can be built with Cordova, or this is available on the Android and iPhone app-stores as 'AtomJump Messaging')

AtomJump's own Notification System

This notification system option does not depend on any certificates from Android or Apple, but instead lets you connect to one or more installations of the MedImage Cloud Server >= 1.8.7. More details are available here: MedImage Server

In your config.json file you should switch 'atomjumpNotifications.use' to 'true' to enable this type of notification system.

Current Limitations: Android app notifications will appear up to 30 seconds apart. iPhone app notifications will do the same, if the app is in the foreground on the phone.

To configure multiple MedImage Cloud Servers, and be notified if the load on your notification servers is getting too high, you will need to add a cron job to your server to be run once per day:
sudo crontab -e  
0 0 * * *	/usr/bin/php /yourserverpath/plugins/notifications/check-load.php
and some other cron-jobs to clear out any unused, empty, folders, which can be run once per week:
sudo crontab -e 
5 8 * * 0    /usr/bin/find /yourserverpath/plugins/notifications/outgoing/ -empty -type d -delete
On the server holding the MedImage Server software, you can do something similar:
sudo crontab -e 
5 8 * * 0    /usr/bin/find $(npm prefix -global)/lib/node_modules/medimage/photos -empty -type d -delete 
You may also need to manually add an outgoing folder in the notifications plugin directory that can be written to by the 'www-data' or Apache user:
sudo mkdir outgoing
sudo chmod 777 outgoing 

Certificate Updates

You will need to update your installation once a year if you're using Apple push notifications as the certificate runs out.
Please log this in your own personal calendar for a reminder, since the software will not automatically notify you when the certificate runs out.
