--- INSTALLATION GUIDE ---

If you are a reseller, then steps 1-4 must be done by the server owner (root). A reseller does not have enough rights for these operations. All further configuration and updates will be done by you.



1) Upload fantastico.tgz to a non web-accessible area of your server (eg: place it into /home/ANYUSER/. Upload in BINARY mode.



2) Telnet to your server (log in as root)

cd /home/some_user/
tar xzpf fantastico.tgz

(Replace the word "some_user" above with the real username.
Example: cd /home/admin/)



3) Change the owner of the fantastico files to the user that will be the administrator:

chown -R some_user.some_user fantastico

(Replace the words "some_user" above with the real username.
Example: chown -R admin.admin fantastico)



4) Move Fantastico into a theme's directory.

To move it into bluelagoon:
mv /home/some_user/fantastico /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/bluelagoon/

To move it into Xskin:
mv /home/some_user/fantastico /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/Xskin/

To move it into coolbreeze:
mv /home/some_user/fantastico /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/coolbreeze/

Coolbreeze (as of version of April 25th 2003) and XController will automatically detect Fantastico and link to it. Other skins will need a symlink to the Fantastico directory and a HTML-link to this symlink (for example create into the theme's directory a symlink named "fantastico" and pointing to the original Fantastico directory. Now add to your skin a HTML-link to ./fantastico/index.php if you didn't modify the name or to ./your_name/index.php if you did modify the name.)
