in the last days I worked hard on a program which will make the Installion of CMSimple_XH more easy.
I think, a normal user has at least three problems:
1. He has to install and use a FTP-Program.
2. He has to determine the "document-root" on the webserver
3. Finally he has to set the properties of some web-directories.
With my program he hasn't to deal with all that.
He (and you) must download one file ( http://www.prof-horst-guenther.de/cmsim ... ll_exe.zip
), extract it to any local directory and start setup.exe
. All necessary files are included: CMSimple_XH Version 1 too. Then he has to answer some questions in 4 steps and all is done.
The program is written in PHP and "compiled" to an EXE with ZZEE-PhpEXE.
In the next step I will make a second version, which will run on the server. So, there is nothing to download for the user, it will act like a "Server-to-server" Program. I know, that the user has to send his FTP-Password and so on to the server, which is a security-risk. But before the user often doesnt know what happens, he will do that.
My biggest open problem is to show a progress-bar while uploading. Because that needs up to 5 Minutes, there must happen anything for the user. In my lokal environment (PHPEd by NuSphere) there is no problem. But the solution doesn't work in the "compiled" version. So, after Step 3 be patient.
I think, there will be some bugs. And I am not very good in web-design. I hope, someone will test that program, tell me the bugs and give some suggestions.
I am very curious about your replies.
