Textpattern CMS 4.5.0 Released under the GNU General Public License. See textpattern/license.txt for terms and conditions. Includes contributions licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License. See textpattern/lgpl-2.1.txt for terms and conditions. Includes contributions licensed under the New BSD License. == Installation == * Extract the files to your site (in the web root, or choose a subdirectory). The top-level index.php should reside in this directory, as should the /textpattern/ and the /rpc/ directory. * Create or establish the existence of a working MySQL database, load /textpattern/setup/ (or /subpath/textpattern/setup/) in a browser, and follow the directions. == Upgrading == * Log out of the admin-side. * Verify the existence of a working database and file backup. * Replace the three files in your main installation directory (index.php, css.php and .htaccess), everything in your /rpc/ directory and everything in your /textpattern/ directory (except config.php) with the corresponding files in this distribution. css.php and /rpc/ might not yet exist in your current site. * When you login to the admin-side, the relevant upgrade script is run automatically. Please take a look into diagnostics to find out whether there are any errors and whether the correct version number is displayed. NOTE: Upgrades from versions below 4.2.0 will present this warning upon your very first login to the admin-side: Warning: Unknown column 'user_name' in 'where clause' select name, val from txp_prefs where prefs_id=1 AND user_name='' in /path/to/your/site/textpattern/lib/txplib_db.php on line xx This is expected behaviour for the very first login after an upgrade. Every further move in the admin side will not throw an error message. * Verify all preference settings. == Getting Started == * FAQ is available at http://textpattern.com/faq/ * In-depth documentation and a comprehensive tag index is available in the Textpattern documentation at http://textpattern.net/ * You can get support and information via: Forum: http://forum.textpattern.com/ Twitter: http://textpattern.com/@textpattern Google+: http://textpattern.com/+ Facebook: http://textpattern.com/facebook * If you are running an Apache web server, rename the @.htaccess-dist@ file in the "/files" directory to ".htaccess" to prohibit direct URL access to your files. Thus the only route to these files becomes through "/file_download". We recommend you consider employing this feature or that you move your "/files" directory out of a web-accessible location. Once moved, you can tell Textpattern of your new directory location from the Advanced Preferences. == IMPORTANT == * Regularly check back at textpattern.com to see if updates are available. Updates are as painless as possible, and often fix important bugs or security-related issues.
