23 trevor 1.2 Installing the Package
24 trevor 1.2 ----------------------
25 djmaze 1.1  
26 djmaze 1.6 If you are going to upgrade your website start at step two...
27 djmaze 1.6 If you want to run a CVSWeb read the CVS.txt documentation carefully before you
28 djmaze 1.6 install our CVS bundle onto your website
29 djmaze 1.6  
30 trevor 1.10 1) Create a new database, for example, 'dragonfly': mysqladmin create cpgnuke
31 djmaze 1.6 OR add a database through your web control panel.
32 djmaze 1.6  
33 djmaze 1.6 2) Edit the file "config.php". Change all the fields until you are happy with
34 djmaze 1.6 the changes and they fit the need of your web site. Give special attention
35 djmaze 1.6 to the database configuration section. When you have finished editing
36 djmaze 1.6 config.php, save it.
37 djmaze 1.1  
38 djmaze 1.6 3) Now upload all content from the /html directory to your webspace.
39 djmaze 1.1  
40 trevor 1.8 4) CHMOD the following file to 600 (622 if 600 fails):
41 djmaze 1.6 - cpg_error.log
42 trevor 1.2  
43 trevor 1.8 5) CHMOD the following directories to 755 (777 if 755 fails):
44 djmaze 1.6 - cache
45 djmaze 1.6 - modules/coppermine/albums
46 djmaze 1.6 - modules/coppermine/albums/userpics
47 djmaze 1.6 - uploads/avatars
48 djmaze 1.6 - uploads/forums
49 djmaze 1.1  
50 djmaze 1.6 6) In your web browser go to http://mydomain.tld/install.php
51 djmaze 1.6 The setup will install/update your database.
52 djmaze 1.1  
53 djmaze 1.6 After the database is created you will be prompted to insert additional
54 djmaze 1.6 information and, if it's a new install, to create the super user account.
55 djmaze 1.6 Create your super user following the on-screen instructions.
56 djmaze 1.1  
57 djmaze 1.6 7) Login following the admin link (http://mydomain.tld/admin.php)
58 djmaze 1.1  
59 djmaze 1.6 Now click on "Main Settings" and change whatever you want to fit your site
60 djmaze 1.6 info. All the options you need to change are in the Settings menu.
61 djmaze 1.1  
62 djmaze 1.6 8) After installing, delete install.php and the /install directory!
63 djmaze 1.1  
64 djmaze 1.1  
65 djmaze 1.1 Testing the Installation
66 djmaze 1.1 ------------------------
67 djmaze 1.1  
68 djmaze 1.1 Go to your homepage, for example:
69 djmaze 1.1  
70 trevor 1.8 http://mydomain.tld/index.php
71 djmaze 1.1  
72 trevor 1.2 To login as administrator:
73 djmaze 1.1  
74 trevor 1.8 http://mydomain.tld/admin.php
75 djmaze 1.1  
76 djmaze 1.6 This will give you full administrator privileges to your installation of
77 trevor 1.10 CPG Dragonfly CMS.
78 djmaze 1.1  
79 djmaze 1.6 Remember to logout from admin after you use it. From this area you can
80 djmaze 1.6 delete or add content on your site, so never leave your computer without
81 djmaze 1.6 logging out from the admin account.
82 djmaze 1.1  
83 djmaze 1.1 We recommend the use of MySQL-Front or phpMyAdmin. Those are good
84 djmaze 1.1 administration systems for MySQL databases.
85 trevor 1.10 www.dragonflycms.com/downloads/mysqlfront25.exe (free version)
86 djmaze 1.1 www.mysqlfront.de (30 days free)
87 djmaze 1.1 www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page
88 djmaze 1.1  
89 djmaze 1.1 We also recommend setting a password for your MySQL access. This is
90 djmaze 1.1 important as some data in the nuke database is not encrypted, so for
91 trevor 1.5 security reasons you need to set a password. Not only that, it's a
92 trevor 1.5 good practice!
