Installation Guide

for Address Book Script 1.18

Step 1 Unzipping the downloaded file
Unzip the downloaded file onto your Desktop. Find a folder named web. You will use the folder in later steps.

Step 2 Setting up database configurations
Open web/config/config.db.inc.php in a text editor and find the following code :
define( 'DB_HOSTNAME', 'Your Hostname Here' );
define( 'DB_DATABASE', 'Your Database Name Here' );
define( 'DB_USERNAME', 'Your Username Here' );
define( 'DB_PASSWORD', 'Your Password Here' );
Please replace the highlighted text with your Hostname, Database, Username, and Password.

About Hostname, Database, Username, and Password.
If you have installed any scripts that use MySQL, it may be ultra-easy for you to figure out what those values are. If this is the first time, however, you may be scratching your head or pulling your hair out ( or maybe both? )

Don't feel bad. This step is truely a pitfall that we have all fallen into at least once.

First, slow down, relax, and take your time. All other steps are easy and this is the only step where you need to think a little longer...

Here is a page where I explained each of them in more details. The page will help you figure out what Hostname, Database, Username, and Password are. Check it out!

Save web/config/config.db.inc.php.

Step 3 Uploading script to your website
Upload the web folder to your web site. You can rename the web folder name to any name you want. In this guide, we assume you keep the folder name intact.

Step 4 Running the installation script
Open web/install/index.php in your browser and click Setup button. After finishing the installation script, remove web/install folder to avoid a security risk.

Step 5 Logging in to the admin panel
Open web/staff/index.php in your browser. This is the admin panel where you can search, view, edit, and delete address entries. Enter admin and password for the username and password, respectively.
