INSTALLATION:

It is recommended that you read the entire installation process steps prior to performing installation. Each solution has specific instructions.

Installation Sequence

  1. Download solution to desktop
  2. Expand installation package (use any standard archive application; such as WinZip®, StuffIt Expander® or TAR command)
  3. Set configuration settings
  4. Upload components to server
  5. Set file permissions
  6. Test installation
  7. Customize Templates as desired
  8. Test customizations

Authorize non-Logic Components

  • Authorize graphic files for Read and Execute access; see "NOTE FOR NON-LOGIC COMPONENTS" below.
  • Authorize static HTML ".html" files for Read access; see "NOTE FOR NON-LOGIC COMPONENTS" below.
  • Authorize HTML Templates ".htm" files for Read access; see "NOTE FOR LOGIC COMPONENTS" below.

NOTE FOR NON-LOGIC COMPONENTS: Specify minimum required access permissions to achieve a more secure configuration; permission requirements for non-logic modules are dependent on server configuration where authorizations are required for either "group" only or for "owner", "group" and "other".

Modify Logic Components

Modify all logic components "*.cgi" and "*.pl" logic modules as follows:

  • First line of code (#!) correctly points to the PERL executable binary on the server (use command "which perl" or consult your server administrator)
  • All PERL "requires" statements contained in "*.cgi" and "*.pl" logic modules must use "absolute" directory paths (beginning with a forward slash "/")

Authorize Logic Components

Authorize logic components and dependent components (HTML and Email templates, and others) as follows:

  • Authorize "*.pl" logic modules for read access; see NOTE FOR LOGIC COMPONENTS below.
  • Authorize "*.cgi" logic modules for read and execute access; see NOTE FOR LOGIC COMPONENTS below.
  • Authorize all HTML and Email Templates documents for read access at the logic level; see NOTE FOR LOGIC COMPONENTS below.

NOTE FOR LOGIC COMPONENTS: Use minimum required permissions to achieve a more secure configuration; permission requirements for logic modules are dependent on the server configuration whether authorization is required for "owner" only (i.e., Apache with SUExec active), or "owner" and "group."

Set Configuration variables in iv.cgi; see embedded instructions.

Uploading to Web Server

All dependent and required components must be successfully installed and configured. All components, with the exception of images, must be FTP uploaded as TEXT. Images must be FTP uploaded as BINARY.

USAGE:

This is a back end administration utility invoked via the URL that points to it. The default install location would point to "http://yourdomain/cgi-bin/cm/vi/vi.cgi" where "yourdomain" would be replaced accordingly.
