2.1 Unix/Linux Upgrade Instructions - SiteNet BBS Ver 3.x

Follow the upgrade instructions below to upgrade SiteNet BBS from Ver 3.x to a newer Ver 3.x

Step 1. (Extract the .zip archive)

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

Step 2. (Copy .cgi and .pm script files)

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

Located in the cgi directory is .cgi and .pm files. Also in the cgi directory is a directory called 'admin'. Inside the 'admin' directory there are also .cgi and .pm files.

Overwrite/replace all your old .cgi and .pm files, except config.cgi - with the new .cgi files that came with the .zip archive. The old .cgi and .pm files will be located in your cgi-bin directory for the previous installation.

Do not replace config.cgi on your host/server with the one that came with the .zip installation archive. Leave it as is.

Now you will have replaced all your old .cgi and .pm files and new additional script files will have been copied to your cgi-bin directory.

Step 3. (Set permissions of the .cgi and .pm script files)

Set the all the .cgi and .pm files you transferred and replaced over your old .cgi and .pm files to the permission setting of 777

The upgrade will now be complete.
