Site Comments Pro Install Instructions:

1. Add the following line to the .htaccess file in your server root (ie. public_html):

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .html

If there is no .htaccess file, upload the one provided.

2. Upload the entire 'SiteCommentsPro' folder, keeping the directory structure in tact.

3. CHMOD the data folder to 7-7-7 & ALL the .dat files within (e.g.comments.dat, body.dat etc)

CHMOD includes/config.php 7-7-7

4. Navigate to www.YOURDOMAIN.com/SiteCommentsPro/install.php

... and follow the simple on screen instructions. Once installed, DELETE the install.php file!

You can log in to the admin page using the username and password you created above at:

www.YOURDOMAIN.com/SiteCommentsPro/admin/

Now you can add the script to as many of your html pages as you want, just open the html page you want to enable comments on and add the following line where you want the comment script to appear.

<? include("SiteCommentsPro/index.php"); ?>      (NOTE:  the path to the script must NOT contain http://www.yourdomain.com)


TROUBLESHOOTING:

If your hosting account isn't already able to handle html as php you will need to enable this from cpanel, just follow along these instructions:

1. Log into cpanel and click on 'Apache Handlers'. -->

... this will bring up a something looking like this:

Inside the box below 'Extension(s)' type:  .htm .html

Inside the box below 'Handler' type:  application/x-httpd-php

 

Make sure the script is installed in a directory above the pages you want the comments on.  E.g.  If you want the comments on your site to be at yourdomain.com/page1.html, yourdomain.com/page2.html , then the script must be at yourdomain.com/SiteCommentsPro/
