Real Newbie Help

Recommended Posts

I feel like a fool for asking this surrounded by script help threads but i'm clueless on this one. So I hope someone can help me out.

I'm trying to install a PHP script by cutenews (their news feature) but i've never installed a PHP code before. The instructions told me to set-up a mySQL database called "cutenews", and then put all the files into that directory. But when I go to the FTP theres no folder in there named "cutenews"  ???

I'm using IX webhosting if that makes a difference.

Thanks.

Don't confuse a database named cutenews with a folder named cutenews.

If you need a folder named cutenews, then use your FTP client to make a new folder.

If you need to create a database, that's something you need to do through your web server control panel.

Make sure you read the script installation instructions carefully.

yeah your right, Its just a directory I need. I just presumed a mySQL database was required for a PHP script.

Cheers for the help

Cutenews uses 'flat' files, i.e. plain text files to store posted items instead of a MySQL database to store posted items.  Probably somewhere in the installation instructions it will tell you to set the folder permissions (or CHMOD the folder permissions) to make it writeable.
