Installation


Installation of © PayPal Smart-Store is moderately difficult. It requires some knowlege of PERL scripts, TELNET, FTP, as well as some basic UNIX or LINUX commands.

If you encounter difficulty, ask your hosting company to install it for you.

Should you wish us to install © PayPal Smart-Store for you, we offer installation for a fee. See: Support Below.

The file you received is pp_smart_lite.tar.gz.

A tar file is like a zip file, except that on UNIX/LINUX servers it can be untarred
and all the original directories and files retain their proper permissions.

There are two methods of installing © PayPal Smart-Store:

1. ON THE SERVER:
  • Upload pp_smart_lite.tar.gz to your cgi-local or cgi-bin directory.
    Put pp_smart_lite.tar.gz above directories you wish to create.
  • Telnet or SSH to your server.
  • cd to the tar file directory.
  • At the command prompt Issue: tar xpvzf pp_smart_lite.tar.gz
  • This will untar the file file.tar and create all the proper directories.
    and files, maintaining the file structures, and with the proper file permissions.
2. LOCALLY
  • Extract on PC with a zip utility like: PKZIP.
  • Create directories on the server
  • FTP all files to the server.
  • Set directory and file permissions. [ Detailed look at the directories ]
  • Configure pp_cfg.cgi
  • Try running store.
    If it runs, finnish configuration through administrator
    If it doesn't run look at Troubleshooting.

Directory Structure and Permissions


When the file pp_smart_lite.tar.gz is 
untarred remotely or unzipped locally
all the directories will be restored
as shown below.

On some servers, after you configure
pp_cfg.cgi and set permissions, it may
run. In that case, you may still want
to move the data directory (pp_data)
outside of the web root
cgi-local
pp_smart
index.cgi    0755
pp_cfg.cgi    0755
readme.txt
pp_ss Directory
pp_admin Directory
pp_images Directory
pp_data Directory
On the right is the most desirable
directory tree. Some servers will not
serve images from a cgi-bin, so the
image directory (pp_images) needs to
be moved beneath the www root. In ALL
cases it is advisible to locate the
data directory above (outside of) the
www root.
