In order to setup the program the following prerequisites are necessary.
The above doesn't mean it work with other configurations, OS's, DB's etc,
but we only provide INSTALL instructions for the above configuration. In fact EQ Roster/Gallery works under Windows 98 using
Installing the Pack
Unzip the package into the directory you want to use on your web
server, if you're unsure where that is, ask your system administrator.
When you unpack the files to your desired directory it will have a
file system of this:
/ <- roster/gallery/event/bank files
/admin/ <- admin files
/includes/ <- included files
/images/ <- image files
First you need to if your running on a Unix server with Apache you will need to CHMOD
the file config.php to 666 found in the /includes/ directory or the install file
will not run then run the install.php file found in the /includes/ directory and use the step by step instructions in it
and don't forget to write down your admin username and password as you will need
them to get into the Admin CP for the scripts.
Now new in this version you don't have to edit any files to get it to work, the
install file does everything for you and then automatically locks after an
install or upgrade!, it is a lot easier than before in the future you may not even have to edit a file.
Now if your running on a Unix server with Apache you will need to CHMOD a
few directories first CHMOD the /gallery/ directory in /images/ directory
to 666 so people can upload the gallery images they want to post, then CHMOD
the /chars/ directory in /images/ directory to 666 so people can upload pictures of there
characters for there character profiles.
After that you can split your websites design and place the top in the header.php
file and the bottom in the footer.php file these are located in the /includes/ directory after that EQRG should be integrated into your existing
website if you have any questions about splitting your website please go to the
forums and read the support forums for EQRG and there is a post in there about
Your document root should look like this:
Now point your browser to:
You can now change all the features and options in the administration area.
If you are having install problems like the install.php script is not functioning
then you will need to make the database and populate it manually. For this I have
supplied a dump file for you it is located in the /includes/ directory. to make the
admin use the data provided in the users dump area all you have to do is change the
name "Admin" to any name you want and the password "adpass" to any password you want
and then change firstname.lastname@example.org to the admin's email address. You should be done.
To do this manually I suggest using phpMyAdmin it is a good well structured program
for managing a MySQL database also you will need to edit the config.php file as
you had to make the database manually it should be pretty much self explanatory.
If you can't upload images to the gallery or character pics then you
need to CHMOD the directories to 777.
