1.2 Installation Instructions

The installation of FM ClickTracker should be painless. Every measure has been taken to ensure that you get it right the first time. You don't have to edit any files, and only need to supply information via a setup interface.

Follow the steps below exactly as described and you should have FM ClickTracker serving you in a couple of minutes. Do the steps as you read through them. The setup instructions looks lengthy but it could actually have been explained in a couple of lines. The reason for it being a lot of text, is that we are trying to cover all possible situations when doing the setup and to explain it thoroughly to avoid any setup problems.

Step 1. (Extract the .zip archive)

Extract the files with their directories that came in the .zip archive.

Step 2. (Create a directory called 'html')

Create a directory called 'html' or anything else you would like to call it. This directory should be inside your public html directory.

Step 3. (Copy files to the 'html' directory)

The installation .zip archive will contain directories inside it. These directories are 'cgi', and 'html'

Now copy the files inside the 'html' directory of the .zip archive to the 'html' directory you have created.

Step 5. (Copy files to your 'cgi-bin' directory)

The .zip archive will contain directories inside it. These directories are 'cgi', and 'html'

Copy the files in the 'cgi' directory of the .zip installation archive to your 'cgi-bin' directory. You could place the files in for example:

Step 6. (Set permissions of the .cgi and .pm files)

Set the permissions of the .cgi and .pm files to the permission setting of 755.

Step 7. (Set config.cgi to the permission setting of 777)

Assign the permission setting of 777 to config.cgi - config.cgi is one of the files that you copied into your cgi-bin directory.

Step 8. (The setup interface)

Load setup.cgi in your browser and follow the instructions from there. setup.cgi is in your 'cgi-bin' directory where you have copied the .cgi and .pm files.

It should be located at, for example:
