Manual Install Instructions
Download the search engine and save it as search.txt. For best results, use your browser's "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" option to save the file - otherwise it may be corrupted during transfer. Once saved to your hard drive, upload it to your website (use ASCII mode if using FTP).
If your path to Perl is not "/usr/local/bin/perl", then edit the first line of the script to point the appropriate path. The default should work for most people. Your tech support department can tell you the correct path.
>Give this script read and execute permissions for everyone (chmod 755 in the Unix/telnet world; on Windows, no special permissions are needed). Give the script the appropriate file extension, usually .pl or .cgi. Your tech support department can tell you the correct extension. Create a folder named "searchdata" in the same directory as the script. Give this folder read/write/execute permissionsfor everyone (chmod 777 in the Unix/telnet world; on Windows, give Everyone Full Control permissions).
After setting permissions, visit the
script in a web browser with querystring "Mode=Admin". For
example, if you install to http://foo.com/search.pl, visit http://foo.com/search.pl?Mode=Admin.
You will be prompted to choose an admin password. Do so. The script will
hand back an encrypted version of your password. Copy the encrypted
password into the text of the script as directed, and then re-upload it.
