  1. Installation guide
  2. The following notes apply to alpha/beta releases. Some manual installation is
  3. required at this time.
  4. 1. Requirements
  5. - Apache with mod-rewrite enabled and "Options All" so you can use a
  6. local .htaccess file
  7. - PHP > 5.1. The later the better. You'll need 5.3 for full openssl
  8. encryption support
  9. - PHP *command line* access with register_argc_argv set to true in the
  10. php.ini file
  11. - Mysql 5.x
  12. - cron
  13. [Dreamhost.com offers all of the necessary hosting features at a
  14. reasonable price. If your hosting provider doesn't allow Unix shell access,
  15. you might have trouble getting everything to work.]
  16. 2. Edit htconfig.php and change system settings. Rename to .htconfig.php
  17. 3. Import database.sql into your database with mysql command line or via phpmyadmin
  18. 4. Import updates.sql (if it exists) to catch any late-breaking devel changes
  19. 5. Put this directory into the root of your web server document area.
  20. - To use a subdir of your main site, set the
  21. config variable $a->path to the relative subdir
  22. in .htconfig.php - for example to use http://example.com/test -
  23. set $a->path to 'test'.
  24. - Everything will work much better if you can dedicate a domain
  25. or subdomain so that you don't require an extra server path.
  26. 6. Navigate to your site with a web browser and register an account.
  27. 7. Set up a cron task to run "php include/poller.php http://my.domain.name" once every 5-10 minutes.
