PHP Site Review Script (SRS) - Installation Guide

(Note: If you are finding it dificult to install our script, try our paid installation service.)

Thank you for your interest in using the SRS Script. Please follow the steps given below to complete installation of the application.

Step 1: Download the ZIP file of the package from the site and save it on your computer.

Step 2: Go to the folder where the ZIP file of the package is saved and extract all files to a suitable location.

Step 3: Go to the folder where the files are extracted and read the readme file (licence information etc.).

Step 4:

  • Create a database that you want to use for your site. Follow the steps given below for cPanel users. If you are not using cPanel, the steps will be similar. If you are not sure, please consult the user manual or support documentation of your hosting provider.

    First log in to your cPanel control panel or similar control panel provided by your hosting company. Then go to the MySQL wizard.

    Now enter the name of your database and click on 'Create Database' button.

    Make sure that the success message is shown.

    Now go back to the wizard page and create a user for your database. Enter a password for the user. Note down these details somewhere as they are required for the next steps.

    One last step left now - add the newly created user to the database.

    Make sure you give this user all the rights.

    Your database and user for it is now ready. Move to the next step.

     Step 5: Create database structure.

  • Now create the database structure required for the application in MySQL using phpMyAdmin utility. There may be other ways of creating the database definition but this installation guide will show you how to do it using phpMyAdmin (standard utility available with most of the hosting service providers).

    Go to the phpMyAdmin utility in your cPanel. Clicking on the phpMyAdmin icon will typically open a new window.

     

    You should see the newly created database on the left hand menu. Click on the database name. Some versions of phpMyAdmin will give a dropdown. Select the database from the dropdown in this case.

    First you will see an empty database. Click on the Import button in the right menu.

    Now we are going to import the database definition and structures from the file that has come with your ZIP package. To use this file click on the 'Browse' button.

    Once the file selection pop-up appears, select the file 'srs_db.sql' from the folder where you have unzipped the files. Screenshot below shows a different file name. It is only for illustration purposes.

    Once the file is selected, make sure other options are also selected as shown in the image below and then click on the 'Go' button towards the bottom of the page.

    Make sure you see the success message after the file upload and the database tables created in the left column as shown below. Again, the screenshot is only for illustration purposes. The actual table names for this script will be different.

    Close phpMyAdmin utility.

     

  • Now the database is ready, let us get started with updating the variables in the config file. For this, open srs_config.php using any editor of your choice. Notepad is also fine.
  • Updating the config file: Once you have your srs_config.php file open in any text editor of your choice, start going down the file. Each variable has sufficient explanation against it. Update the values that reflect your setup. Once the variables are setup, save the file and close it.
  • Updating the template: The application comes with a very basic template file. It is saved in the templates folder and then sorted by the numeric value. We are trying to improve the templates but you are requested to update the template file to match your current site look and feel or to whatever look and feel you prefer. It is also the right place to add your banners and logos etc. Just make sure you maintain the place holders intact. Place holders are nothing but texts included in square brackets. For example - [PAGECONTENT] is the placeholder where the script shows the actual central content of each page.
  • You are done! All that is left is to upload the files to your webserver and point to the directory where you have uploaded the files.
