PIXELPOST INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Installation should be a breeze. Follow my lead.
You have downloaded pixelpost? Inside it you will find a folder called www
. Inside this folder another folder called admin
. Open up the document called "pixelpost.php" with your favorite texteditor (BBEdit, Notepad, TextEdit etc) and edit that. You need to edit this in order for pixelpost to be able to connect to your MySQL database, which I must say is a dealbreaker for this one.
Now, upload the contents of www
to your website. Stuff it in some folder there.
Open your browser and point it to your website and the adminspace of pixelpost. If for example you've installed pixelpost under a folder called, ta-daa! "pixelpost". You should go to this place: http://www.yourwebby.com/pixelpost/admin/
(replace yourwebby.com of course).
Follow the online instructions, this deals with your user name, password and some other stuff.
That's really all there is to it. Download. Edit. Upload. Done.
Make sure you set correct permissions on the images
folders. It should be chmod 777 (user, group and world all has read, write and execute privileges). Your FTP-application usually can deal with setting permissions.
