Installation Instructions

1) The installation archive contains a file called readme.txt and a directory called linkmachine/. Using your FTP program, upload the linkmachine/ directory to your site's home directory. Then set all of the write permissions on your site's linkmachine/ directory to true. (See below for more information about doing this.)

2) Open a web browser and enter the URL of the file install.php within your site's linkmachine/ directory. For instance, if your site is called, you'd enter the URL:

Now you're ready to use LinkMachine! You may find it helpful to read the Getting Started pages for an overview of how LinkMachine works:

Changing Write Permissions

After uploading the linkmachine/ directory to your site, it's important to set the write permissions for that directory to true, so that LinkMachine can save new files in the directory. If you do not know how to use your FTP program to change a directory's write permissions to true, please consult your FTP program's documentation. One common method used by many FTP programs is to select the directory, choose Change Permissions from a right-click or pop-down menu, and turn on all write permissions. In other FTP programs you would select chmod instead, and set the permissions number to 777.

If you don't have an FTP program, we recommend SmartFTP, which can be downloaded for free at this site:
