CPG-Nuke: Web Portal System
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS. IF YOU DO THIS,
YOU WILL HAVE YOUR SITE UP AND RUNNING IN JUST A FEW MINUTES.
In order to setup CPG-Nuke the following prerequisites are necessary.
- A (Apache) Web Server (http://www.apache.org)
- PHP version 4.3.x or better (mod_php) Apache module (http://www.php.net)
- MySQL database server (http://www.mysql.com)
This doesn't mean it won't work with other configurations, OS's, DB's, etc,
but we only provide INSTALL instructions for the above configuration.
In fact CPG-Nuke works under Windows (all), FreeBSD, OS/2, MacOS, etc.
Setup of these required packages is beyond the scope of this document and if
you are unsure you should check with each of the appropriate web sites for
** Installing the Package **
If you are going to upgrade your website start at step 2
If you want to run a CVSWeb read the CVS.txt documentation carefully before you
going to install CPG-Nuke.
1) Create a database called, for example, 'mycms': mysqladmin create mycms
OR add a database thru your web control panel.
2) Edit the file "config.php". Change all the fields until you are happy with
the changes and they fit the need of your web site. Give special attention
to the database configuration section. When you have finished editing
config.php file save it.
3) Now upload all content from the "html" directory to your webspace.

Create your Super User following the on-screen instructions.
6) Login following the admin link (http://yourdomain.com/admin.php)

info. All the options you need to change are in the Settings menu.

Testing the Installation

Remember to "Logout" from admin after you use it. From this area you can
delete or add content on your site, so never leave your computer without

We recommend the use of MySQL-Front or phpMyAdmin. Those are good
administration systems for MySQL databases.

To change your site's logo, go to the themes directory and make a custom
logo for each individual theme. Just navigate around all themes and change
the graphics you want.
We removed quite a few modules from the CPG-Nuke package and put them in
a directory called add-ons. You'll find the Journal, Web Links, Downloads and
a few other modules in there. It's simple to use them. Just copy the contents
of whatever module you want to install to your root directory. For example, to
install the Downloads add-on, copy the contents of the add-ons/Downloads
directory (/admin, /blocks, /images, /modules) to your root directory. Log in
as admin, then activate the module. That's all there is to it! Your module is
now ready to use. Any blocks that come with the add-on are also now ready for
use. Add them the same way you'd add any other block.
A note for the CPG-Nuke site's administrators: Only admins can view the
following data in the site:
