12 djmaze 1.1 Base Requirements
13 djmaze 1.1 -----------------
14 djmaze 1.1  
15 trevor 1.2 In order to setup CPG-Nuke, the following prerequisites are necessary:
16 djmaze 1.1  
17 trevor 1.2 - An (Apache) Web Server (http://www.apache.org)
18 trevor 1.2 - PHP version 4.3.x or newer (mod_php) Apache module (http://www.php.net)
19 djmaze 1.1 - MySQL database server (http://www.mysql.com)
20 djmaze 1.1  
21 trevor 1.2 This doesn't mean CPG-Nuke won't work with other configurations, OS's, DB's, etc,
22 djmaze 1.1 but we only provide INSTALL instructions for the above configuration.
23 djmaze 1.1 In fact CPG-Nuke works under Windows (all), FreeBSD, OS/2, MacOS, etc.
24 djmaze 1.1  
25 djmaze 1.1 Setup of these required packages is beyond the scope of this document and if
26 djmaze 1.1 you are unsure you should check with each of the appropriate web sites for
27 djmaze 1.1 further details.

30 trevor 1.2 Installing the Package
31 trevor 1.2 ----------------------
32 djmaze 1.1  
33 trevor 1.4 If you are going to upgrade your website start at step two...
34 djmaze 1.1 If you want to run a CVSWeb read the CVS.txt documentation carefully before you
35 trevor 1.2 install our CVS bundle onto your website
36 djmaze 1.1  
37 trevor 1.2 1) Create a new database, for example, 'cpgnuke': mysqladmin create cpgnuke
38 trevor 1.2 OR add a database through your web control panel.
39 djmaze 1.1  
40 djmaze 1.1 2) Edit the file "config.php". Change all the fields until you are happy with
41 djmaze 1.1 the changes and they fit the need of your web site. Give special attention
42 djmaze 1.1 to the database configuration section. When you have finished editing
43 trevor 1.2 config.php, save it.
44 djmaze 1.1  
45 trevor 1.2 3) Now upload all content from the /html directory to your webspace.
46 djmaze 1.1  
47 trevor 1.3 4) CHMOD the following file to 622:
48 trevor 1.2 - cpg_error.log
49 trevor 1.2  
50 trevor 1.2 5) CHMOD the following directories to 777:
51 trevor 1.2 - cache
52 djmaze 1.1 - modules/coppermine/albums
53 djmaze 1.1 - modules/coppermine/albums/userpics
54 trevor 1.4 - uploads/avatars
55 trevor 1.4 - uploads/forums
56 djmaze 1.1  
57 trevor 1.4 6) In your web browser go to http://mydomain.tld/install.php
58 djmaze 1.1 The setup will install/update your database.
59 djmaze 1.1  
60 djmaze 1.1 After the database is created you will be prompted to insert additional
61 trevor 1.2 information and, if it's a new install, to create the super user account.
62 trevor 1.2 Create your super user following the on-screen instructions.
63 djmaze 1.1  
64 trevor 1.4 7) Login following the admin link (http://mydomain.tld/admin.php)
65 djmaze 1.1  
66 djmaze 1.1 Now click on "Main Settings" and change whatever you want to fit your site
67 djmaze 1.1 info. All the options you need to change are in the Settings menu.
68 djmaze 1.1  
69 trevor 1.2 8) After installing, delete install.php and the /install directory!
70 djmaze 1.1  
71 djmaze 1.1  
72 djmaze 1.1 Testing the Installation
73 djmaze 1.1 ------------------------
74 djmaze 1.1  
75 djmaze 1.1 Go to your homepage, for example:
76 djmaze 1.1  
77 trevor 1.2 http://mydomain.com/index.php
78 djmaze 1.1  
79 trevor 1.2 To login as administrator:
80 djmaze 1.1  
81 trevor 1.2 http://mydomain.com/admin.php
82 djmaze 1.1  
83 djmaze 1.1 This will give you full administrator privileges to your installation of
84 djmaze 1.1 CPG-Nuke.
85 djmaze 1.1  
86 trevor 1.2 Remember to logout from admin after you use it. From this area you can
87 djmaze 1.1 delete or add content on your site, so never leave your computer without
88 djmaze 1.1 logging out from the admin account.
89 djmaze 1.1  
90 djmaze 1.1 We recommend the use of MySQL-Front or phpMyAdmin. Those are good
91 djmaze 1.1 administration systems for MySQL databases.
92 djmaze 1.1 www.cpgnuke.com/downloads/mysqlfront25.exe (free version)
93 djmaze 1.1 www.mysqlfront.de (30 days free)
94 djmaze 1.1 www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page
95 djmaze 1.1  
96 djmaze 1.1 We also recommend setting a password for your MySQL access. This is
97 djmaze 1.1 important as some data in the nuke database is not encrypted, so for
98 trevor 1.2 security reasons you need to set a password. Not only that, it's a good
99 djmaze 1.1 practice!
100 djmaze 1.1  
101 djmaze 1.1  
102 djmaze 1.1 Final Notes
103 djmaze 1.1 -----------
104 djmaze 1.1  
105 djmaze 1.1 That's it! You're done with CPG-Nuke. Just navigate around, play with it,
106 djmaze 1.1 abuse it and if you like CPG-Nuke, use it. Spend some time getting used to the
107 djmaze 1.1 administration interface.
108 djmaze 1.1  
109 trevor 1.2 To change your site's logo, go to the /themes directory and make a custom
110 djmaze 1.1 logo for each individual theme. Just navigate around all themes and change
111 djmaze 1.1 the graphics you want.
112 djmaze 1.1  
113 djmaze 1.1 We removed quite a few modules from the CPG-Nuke package and put them in
114 trevor 1.2 a directory called add-ons. You'll find the Journal, Web Links, Downloads and
115 trevor 1.2 a few others in there. It's very easy to install them. Just copy the contents
116 trevor 1.2 of whatever module you want to install to your root directory. For example, to
117 trevor 1.2 install the Downloads add-on, copy the contents of the /add-ons/Downloads
118 djmaze 1.1 directory (/admin, /blocks, /images, /modules) to your root directory. Log in
119 trevor 1.2 as admin, then activate the module. That's all there is to it! Your module is
120 trevor 1.2 now ready to use. Any blocks that come with the add-on are also now ready for
121 trevor 1.2 use. Add them the same way you'd add any other block.
122 djmaze 1.1  
123 djmaze 1.1 A note for the CPG-Nuke site's administrators: Only admins can view the
124 djmaze 1.1 following data in the site:
125 djmaze 1.1  
126 djmaze 1.1 - Administration Menu
127 djmaze 1.1 - Number of New Submissions
128 djmaze 1.1 - Edit button for each link in Web Links
129 djmaze 1.1 - Edit and Delete options for each Article
130 djmaze 1.1 - Delete option for each comment
131 djmaze 1.1 - IP/Host address of the comment poster
132 djmaze 1.1 - Moderation option and button (if set for admin only)
133 djmaze 1.1 - and MANY more...
134 djmaze 1.1  
135 djmaze 1.1 PS: When you e-mail us asking something, just remember that we receive A LOT
136 trevor 1.2 of e-mails a day! We don't answer, but for sure we'll read it.

138 djmaze 1.1 your questions there.
