Rather than waste time using FTP to download html pages,
open them in an editor, and make changes, save them, then
re-upload them, why not just click a tiny button on the
page and make changes in real time from a browser?

This script makes it all possible, and if you have the
latest version of Internet Explorer on a Windows box, you
can even edit the pages in a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get

Installation Overview:

1. Setting some options at the beginning of the script files (*.pl)
2. Using FTP to upload all the files
3. Setting permissions on the files
4. Testing the script

Here's How!

1. Using a text editor like textpad, or notepad, open the .pl scripts
Change the path to perl so that they're configured for your server.
It's usually:

Make changes to the variables at the top as well:

Choose a password:
$adminpass = "password";

Establish the path to the content section:
$content_path = "../content/";#with ending slash

Enter the various domains which can be used on your site:
@domain_possibilities = ("","");

This is self explanatory:
$url_to_upload_script = "/cgi-bin/";

The directory where your clients will upload images to. They will be able
to delete their images from this directory as well:
$upload_dir = "/home/shrimp/domains/";

The URL to the uploads folder:
$upload_url = "/content/uploads/";

The maximum size of all the files in the uploads directory:
$max_upload = "500000";

Make changes to the footer and header .txt files as you see fit.

2. Use an FTP program like WS_FTP or CuteFTP (just some examples I'm aware of) and
upload the files to your server.
Be sure to upload the content folder as you're established it above in the variables.
The .pl files should go in the CGI-BIN.
Upload the HTMLAREA folder and all it's subfolders to the root of your
web-accessable folder. The script will access it like this: /htmlarea/

3. Set permissions (CHMOD) on the *.pl files so they're executable. (755).
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able to read, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, and execute.

Set permissions on the text file, and the content folder so it's editable.
(This is 777).
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able read, write, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, write, and execute.

4. Open one of the shtml pages in a browser, and look for the [e] at the bottom
of the page. Click it, and you should be prompted for a password. Enter
Your password and you will be taken to the content for this page.

5. To add pages, upload a blank text file to the content directory, and a
copy of one of the other pages to the root directory.
For example, to create a page called example, upload example.txt to the
content directory, and example.shtml to the root directory. Make a change
to example.shtml to reflect that it will call on example.txt

That's it! You're set! Let me know if you have problems.
