INSTALLATION NOTES

SearchMaster has a semi-automated install routine, however there are a couple of things you need to do first

### First off, create your MySQL database and take note of the login details and make sure your path to perl is correct. The program assumes #usr/bin/perl but if yours is different, you must open up all the CGI/PL files and change this to reflect your path to perl. ###


### SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS ####

  • 1. create a directory to expand the zip file to
  • 2. Upload the contents of the 'put in CGI bin' folder to your cgi-bin
  • 3. Upload the contents of the 'put in web ROOT' folder to your main web root
  • 4. Still in FTP, navigate to your CGI-BIN/searchmasterv2 directory
  • 5. CHMOD: setup_exe.pl and install.pl to 0755
  • 6. Point your browser to www.yourdomain.com/yourcgidirectory/searchmasterv2/setup_exe.pl
  • 7. Follow the on screen instructions

#### DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS ###

1. Create a directory to place the unpacked files and directories in

2. Unpack the zip file making sure to retain the directory structure

3. You then have 2 sub directories:


expanded view

'put in CGI bin' - This contains the sub directory 'searchmasterv2'. Upload this entire directory to your CGI directory. If you are able to run scripts anywhere in your site you must still create a cgi directory (if you do not have one), but you can name this anything you choose You must end up with a structure like this: www.yourdomain.com/yourcgidirectory/searchmasterv2/

' put in web ROOT' - Upload the 3 sub directories to your main root of your site.

4. Still in your FTP program, go to: your-cgi-directory/searchmasterv2 and CHMOD the following 2 files to 0755: setup_exe.pl install.pl

5. Make sure your path to perl is correct. The program assumes #usr/bin/perl but if yours is different, you must open up all the CGI/PL files and change this to reflect your path to perl.

6. Now go to your browser and go to: www.yourdomain.com/yourcgidirectory/searchmasterv2/setup_exe.pl The installation routine will now start. Follow the on screen instructions.

####### KNOWN ISSUES #########

Certain servers refuse to run the cgi/pl files unless they have been opened and resaved in a unix format. If you get a 500 internal server error when running the setup_exe.pl file, try the following:

1. Make sure your path to perl is correct in the script
2. Make sure you have permission to run cgi scripts in your directory
3. Make sure the file is CHMOD 0755
4. Download the file, open it up and save it in unix format and re-upload it.
5. If re-saving the file in UNIX format cures the problem, the repeat the process for all the other cgi/pl files
