Thank you for choosing Page Updater Pro - WYSIWYG Version as your solution for Content Management. powerful and flexible as the non-WYSIWYG version. Page Updater Pro enpowers you with the ability to update content on web pages that reside on local and remote servers.
Page Updater Pro supports multiple Users and has a separate Update interface that allows Users to edit page content without access to the main administration functions nor access to the actual documents displayed on your website(s).
Additionally, where possible, the program creates it's own local SSI scripts already loaded, CHMODed and ready to run. It will also, where possible, generate the SSI CGI application for the remote content files!
Finally, the program also generates the SSI required for your actual documents. All of this allows you to grant editing rights to portions of your website's pages to your clients without granting them access to your FTP server nor to your actual documents.
Page Updater - WYSIWYG Version must be installed on a UNIX/LINUX type server with Perl 5 or later. Remote servers that have content that is managed by this program must also be UNIX/LINUX type servers with Perl 5 or higher and have the LWP::Simple Perl module installed. You must be using Internet Explorer 5.0 or later as your browser, to use the browser based WYSIWYG interface. Non-Internet Explorer browsers utilise regular text areas.
Path To Perl
All CGI programs written in Perl must start with a line that tells the web server where to look for the Perl interpreter. This means the very first line of each of the .cgi or .pl files MUST be the path to Perl. Here are some examples of common paths to Perl:
This program was shipped with a default path of: #!/usr/bin/perl
This program ships with numerous image files which must be uploaded to a web accessible directory. Create a directory on your server to house the image files. We suggest you create a directory named "pupw" inside your "images" directory. Wherever you decide to store the image files, the location must be specified in the pupw_key.cgi file on line 35.
$ImgURL = "/images/pupw";
On most servers, this should be all that is required. You do not have to set nor alter any of the other variables.
This program uses our advanced set-up routine, which will resolve paths, create directories and set permissions on data directories. If the program encounters a problem during the set-up process, you will be given specific directions on what to do. If the instructions given don't allow you to successfully install the program or you are not comfortable following the instructions, contact us through the Perl Services Support
To install this program, you must have an FTP client and be familiar with how to use it's basic functions. If your not sure how to achieve any of the stated functions or commands with your FTP client, please refer to our tutorial on installation and on using FTP clients at:
Having set the path to Perl and the Image Directory URL, it's time to install the program.
- Open your FTP client and connect to your web space.
- In your cgi-bin create a sub-directory with any legal name that you want (i.e. "pupw").
- CHMOD this sub-directory to 755 (rwx-rx-rx).
- Change into this sub-directory with your FTP client.
- Making sure your FTP client is set to transfer in ASCII mode and not binary mode, transfer all cgi files into the newly created sub-directory. If you do not transfer the files in ASCII mode, you will receive server 500 errors.
- CHMOD all files to 755 (rwx-rx-rx).
- Launch your web browser and in the address line of the browser, type the full URL to the pupw_setup.cgi script:
- Change to the directory you set for the image files and upload all image files. These should be uploaded in Binary mode. If you do not transfer the image files in Binary mode, you will see grainy, incomplete images when viewing them in a web browser.
- Launch your web browser and in the address bar, type the full URL to the pupw_setup.cgi file.
- You should now see a set-up screen asking you to enter/create a User Name and Password.
