STOCKBOX PHOTO® - SELF INSTALLATION GUIDE

Please follow the steps below to quickly and easily build your gallery system

 


or

 
  1. Unzip the zip package.
     
  2. Upload all files to your server in "Binary" mode.
     
  3.  If necessary (see note below) change permissions (CHMOD) as follows:

    Please note that depending on your server configuration, you may not have to change the permissions as indicated below. If your server is running PHP as CGI, then you can leave the permissions with the default server assigned values. You will need to confirm with your hosting provider.

    3.1.  All files under the "config" dir and the "config" dir itself to 777
    3.2.  The "download" directory itself to 777
    3.3.  The "gallery" directory itself to 777

  4. The current version of Stockbox Photo® contains a .htaccess file called .htaccess(stockbox) in the root directory. Therefore, if you have created your own .htaccess that has the RewriteRule and this file resides in the same directory as Stockbox or a parent directory, you will need to make sure the existing RewriteRule doesn't affect Stockbox's RewriteRule. If there are no conflicts you can copy the contents of the .htaccess(stockbox) into the existing .htaccess file in the Stockbox directory. If you don't have an existing .htaccess file, you can simply rename the .htaccess(stockbox) to .htaccess
