16 djmaze 1.1 This doesn't mean it won't work with other configurations, OS's, DB's, etc,
17 djmaze 1.1 but we only provide INSTALL instructions for the above configuration.
18 djmaze 1.1 In fact CPG-Nuke works under Windows (all), FreeBSD, OS/2, MacOS, etc.
19 djmaze 1.1

28 djmaze 1.1 ** **
29 djmaze 1.1 ******************************
30 djmaze 1.1  
31 djmaze 1.1 If you are going to upgrade your website start at step 2
32 djmaze 1.1 If you want to run a CVSWeb read the CVS.txt documentation carefully before you
33 djmaze 1.1 going to install CPG-Nuke.
34 djmaze 1.1  
35 djmaze 1.1 1) Create a database called, for example, 'mycms': mysqladmin create mycms
36 djmaze 1.1 OR add a database thru your web control panel.
37 djmaze 1.1  
38 djmaze 1.1 2) Edit the file "config.php". Change all the fields until you are happy with
39 djmaze 1.1 the changes and they fit the need of your web site. Give special attention
40 djmaze 1.1 to the database configuration section. When you have finished editing
41 djmaze 1.1 config.php file save it.
42 djmaze 1.1  
43 djmaze 1.1 3) Now upload all content from the "html" directory to your webspace.
44 djmaze 1.1  
45 djmaze 1.1 4) CHMOD the following directories to 777:
46 djmaze 1.1 - modules/coppermine/albums
47 djmaze 1.1 - modules/coppermine/albums/userpics
48 djmaze 1.1  
49 djmaze 1.1 5) In your web browser go to http://yourdomain.com/install.php
50 djmaze 1.1 The setup will install/update your database.
51 djmaze 1.1  
52 djmaze 1.1 After the database is created you will be prompted to insert additional
53 djmaze 1.1 information and, if it's a new install, to make the Super user account.
54 djmaze 1.1 Create your Super User following the on-screen instructions.
55 djmaze 1.1  
56 djmaze 1.1 6) Login following the admin link (http://yourdomain.com/admin.php)
57 djmaze 1.1  
58 djmaze 1.1 Now click on "Main Settings" and change whatever you want to fit your site
59 djmaze 1.1 info. All the options you need to change are in the Settings menu.
60 djmaze 1.1  
61 djmaze 1.1 7) After installing, delete install.php and the /install directory!
62 djmaze 1.1  
63 djmaze 1.1  
64 djmaze 1.1 Testing the Installation
65 djmaze 1.1 ------------------------
66 djmaze 1.1  
67 djmaze 1.1 Go to your homepage, for example:
68 djmaze 1.1  
69 djmaze 1.1 http://yourdomain.com/index.php
70 djmaze 1.1  
71 djmaze 1.1 To login as Administrator:
72 djmaze 1.1  
73 djmaze 1.1 http://yourdomain.com/admin.php
74 djmaze 1.1  
75 djmaze 1.1 This will give you full administrator privileges to your installation of
76 djmaze 1.1 CPG-Nuke.
77 djmaze 1.1  
78 djmaze 1.1 Remember to "Logout" from admin after you use it. From this area you can
79 djmaze 1.1 delete or add content on your site, so never leave your computer without
80 djmaze 1.1 logging out from the admin account.
81 djmaze 1.1  
82 djmaze 1.1 We recommend the use of MySQL-Front or phpMyAdmin. Those are good
83 djmaze 1.1 administration systems for MySQL databases.
84 djmaze 1.1 www.cpgnuke.com/downloads/mysqlfront25.exe (free version)
85 djmaze 1.1 www.mysqlfront.de (30 days free)
86 djmaze 1.1 www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page
87 djmaze 1.1  
88 djmaze 1.1 We also recommend setting a password for your MySQL access. This is
89 djmaze 1.1 important as some data in the nuke database is not encrypted, so for
90 djmaze 1.1 security reasons you need to set a password. Not only that, it's a good
91 djmaze 1.1 practice!
92 djmaze 1.1  
93 djmaze 1.1  
94 djmaze 1.1 Final Notes
95 djmaze 1.1 -----------
96 djmaze 1.1  
97 djmaze 1.1 That's it! You're done with CPG-Nuke. Just navigate around, play with it,
98 djmaze 1.1 abuse it and if you like CPG-Nuke, use it. Spend some time getting used to the
99 djmaze 1.1 administration interface.
100 djmaze 1.1  
101 djmaze 1.1 To change your site's logo, go to the themes directory and make a custom
102 djmaze 1.1 logo for each individual theme. Just navigate around all themes and change
103 djmaze 1.1 the graphics you want.
104 djmaze 1.1  
105 djmaze 1.1 We removed quite a few modules from the CPG-Nuke package and put them in
106 djmaze 1.1 a directory called add-ons. You'll find the Journal, Web Links, Downloads and
107 djmaze 1.1 a few other modules in there. It's simple to use them. Just copy the contents
108 djmaze 1.1 of whatever module you want to install to your root directory. For example, to
109 djmaze 1.1 install the Downloads add-on, copy the contents of the add-ons/Downloads
110 djmaze 1.1 directory (/admin, /blocks, /images, /modules) to your root directory. Log in
111 djmaze 1.1 as admin, then activate the module. That's all there is to it! Your module is
112 djmaze 1.1 now ready to use. Any blocks that come with the add-on are also now ready for
113 djmaze 1.1 use. Add them the same way you'd add any other block.
114 djmaze 1.1  
115 djmaze 1.1 A note for the CPG-Nuke site's administrators: Only admins can view the
116 djmaze 1.1 following data in the site:
117 djmaze 1.1  
118 djmaze 1.1 - Administration Menu
119 djmaze 1.1 - Number of New Submissions
120 djmaze 1.1 - Edit button for each link in Web Links
121 djmaze 1.1 - Edit and Delete options for each Article
122 djmaze 1.1 - Delete option for each comment
123 djmaze 1.1 - IP/Host address of the comment poster
124 djmaze 1.1 - Moderation option and button (if set for admin only)
125 djmaze 1.1 - and MANY more...
126 djmaze 1.1  
127 djmaze 1.1 PS: When you e-mail us asking something, just remember that we receive A LOT
128 djmaze 1.1 of e-mails a day!!! We don't answer, but for sure we'll read it.

130 djmaze 1.1 your questions there.
