fileCABINET allows your visitors to search through downloads on your site
and optionally make purchases.

Overview:
--------

How It Works:

You create a database text file of your downloads-- perhaps using a program
like Excell. Then export your file as a pipe delineated text database and
upload it to your site. Users will be able to search for a file, and
description pages are automatically generated. Purchase links are also created
automatically.


_______________________________________
Installation Overview:
-----------------------
1. Set some options at the beginning of the scripts
2. Use FTP to upload the files
4. Set exectute permissions on the Perl script, and write permissions on the
text files
4. Test the script

_______________________________________
Here's How!
-----------

1. Using a text editor like textpad, or notepad, open the .pl file(s)
Change the path to perl so that it's
configured for your server.
It's usually:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
or
#!/usr/bin/perl

2. Change the variables,

For example,

$cgipath = ''; # path to this script (from server root)
$emailprog = '/usr/sbin/sendmail'; # your mailer program...
$admin_email = 'email@email.com';

This is your database file:

$server_file = "file_database.txt";
$records_to_display = 6;
$datapath = "";
$html_page = "/downloads.shtml"; # for using Server Side Includes
$script_url = "/FileCABINET.pl"; # for saving changes in admin panel.
$default_search = "";
$hide_descriptions = 1; # default
$url = $ENV{'SERVER_NAME'}; # you might need to change this to www.yoursite.com/yourdirectory if you have problems.
$login = 'admin';
$password = 'password';
$highlight_color = 'yellow';
$display_categories = 1;
$menu_alignment = "right";
$search_invitation = "Search for a file:";
$search_each_word = 1;
$image_directory = "/images/";
$style = "font-family: Tahoma, Verdana; font-size: 8pt";

You can sign up for an account at PayPal or Kagi, and then grab your info and
place it here in the script:

$paypal_address = "jasonsilver\@crookedbush.com";
$KAGI_store_info = "85E¤cy=USD&lang=en";


3. Open the downloads.shtml file and change the title and other aspects of
the page to reflect your site's design.

4. Open the header.txt and footer.txt file and paste in header and footer
content from your main site so that the pages look like they belong to the
style used in other parts of your site.

5. Use an FTP program like WS_FTP or CuteFTP (just some examples I'm aware of)
and upload the files to your server's cgi-bin.

6. Set permissions (CHMOD):
.pl files: 755
.txt files: 777, or 766 if 777 is not allowed.
index.shtml: 777

NOW, TEST IT:

7. From a browser, open the .pl file(s)



As always, let me know of problems, questions, or requests for features.

What People Say

Browser Page Editor $0
Add to Cart I looked into every solution all summer and for basic CMS this is just perfect. I only found it by using the right search term, 'browser based CMS' I think. Previously everything that pulled up were the hair pulling sql/php hair pulling things. Those solutions are like using a bazooka to swat a fly. Joomla's powerful but a nightmare when clients already have highly specific designs they don't want changed.
