View Full Version : Guestbook help in Plesk 7.04

10-02-2005, 10:31 PM
Well, I am having a problem setting up a php guestbook in Plesk. The problem is is that I don't understand php that well, although I am getting pretty good with html, and javascript. I don't understand this part, and I don't understand where the seperate filings go, in https, or http, or where. What I am asking is the place to put the separate files, and how to link it to a html page. I am totally lost.
Here is the link to where I got it-http://www.proxy2.de/scripts.php
PLEASE, can someone help me out here, I am in WAY over my head. My server supports all of this, I just don't know how to get it on there, all I know how to do is html and some limited Javascript. I normally wouldn't mess with it, but I kind of need a guestbook/message board for some of my clients to respond on. PLEASE HELP!

(I am running Plesk 7.0.4, and I have root access, I am just not that familiar with it)
Advanced Guestbook 2.3.4 (PHP/MySQL)

- MySQL 3.22.x or higher
- PHP 4.1 or higher


1. Open the configuration file 'config.inc.php' with a text editor
and set up your database settings.

2. Create the tables for the guestbook:
mysql -u<user> -p<pass> <database> < guestbook.sql
Or use the script 'install.php' -> http://www.yourDomain.com/guestbook/install.php

3. Give write permissions to these directories:

- public - 777 (drwxrwxrwx) (directory)
- tmp - 777 (drwxrwxrwx) (directory)

4. The default account is:

Username : test
Password : 123

Do you use a ftp server? You need to in order to set your permissions. If you like, I can install it for you. Email me at lmf332000@yahoo.com

Open your ftp server. Follow the directions in your script. When setting permissions, in my ftp, I right click and then click propieties and change the no. to 777.

This is really a nice free guestbook script which is easier.

I have a "fw_menu.js" on the server in the folder and I am not sure if I have to change something in that file or if it is something I need to add to the code of the nagigation on the pages. The navigation will be the same for all of the pages I will design. I figured everything out except on how to get the code to work. I think it may have something to do with a part of a code that says "position absolute" or something like that.
