          - Put your forum in maintenance mode!
      	  From the Admin Center, select Edit Server Settings in the Forum

          - If there are any problems, visit http://www.simplemachines.org for

     || Uploading The Files ||

          - All files will be uploaded to the directory where SMF is installed!
            *** We will call this the "main" directory below. This is only as a
            reference. Your actual directory name may be different.***

          - The directory where this file is located is representative of the
            Directory where SMF is installed on your web server. (main directory)

            (Note for upgrades)
          - If you previously had a directory for downloads, move all the files
            to the new "downloads" directory or change the path from the admin
            center once installation is completed.

          Note:  DO NOT just upload a directory if it exists in both locations!
                 You could end up overwriting needed files!

         !!! Remember, we are simply calling the directory where you have SMF installed
             your "main" directory below! If it's SMF, html, public_html, etc, this is
             what "main" will refer to below!

         1) Upload the "Blocks" directory to your "main" directory.

         2) Upload the "downloads" directory to your "main" directory.

         3) Upload the "modules" directory to your "main" directory.

         4) Upload the "PortalSources" directory to your "main" directory.
            NOTE: You will now have a "Sources", AND a "PortalSources" directory.
                  DO NOT upload the files in "PortalSources" to the "Sources" directory.
                  They are completely seperate directories.

         5) Open the "Packages" directory and upload the files inside the "Packages" 
            directory, to the "Packages" directory on your server. 
            Do NOT simply upload the directory, add the local files to the
            same directory on the server so that the existing ones on the 
            server are NOT over-written.

         6) Open the "Themes" directory and upload the classic_e1 and Enigma directories.
            NOTE: Some FTP programs may have an issue with the multiple directories
                  inside these themes. You may wish to create an "Enigma" and "classic_e1"
                  directory on your server, then upload the directories inside the local
                  "Enigma" and "classic_e1" directories individually.

     || File Permissions ||

          - CHMOD the following directory to 666 (or windows equivalent)


           This folder will need to remain with these permissions in order for 
           image verification to work. You may need to chmod this directory to
           777, depending on your server configuration.

NOTE:  If you have FTP access to your site, you may skip the permission
       settings on the directories below.  This is only if you have ftp
       and FTP username and password. Most people do, and they may skip 
       to the || Completion || section below.

     ** If you need to chmod the files manually **

		- CHMOD the following directories to 777 (or windows equivalent)

		  	Make a note of the current permission settings because the
		  	items below should be changed back after installation.
			- root (the main directory of your installation)
			- Sources

			Check the following directories as well.  They need to remain
			writable for your installation to work properly.

			- attachments
			- avatars
			- downloads (or the name you have assigned)
			- Packages
			- Smileys
			- Themes

          - CHMOD the following files to 777 (or windows equivalent)

	     	This following list is only for this process, then they must
	          be changed back to their original settings for security reasons.

			> root directory
				- index.php

			> Sources directory
				- ManagePermissions.php
				- Subs.php

		NOTE:  If you have FTP access to your site, you may skip the permission
			  settings on the files ABOVE.  (ONLY if you have ftp access)

			Check the following files as well.  They need to remain
			writable for your installation to work properly.

			> root directory
				- agreement.txt
				- Settings.php
				- Settings_bak.php
			> Packages directory
				- installed.list
				- server.list

!!!  || Completion ||

		- Browse to your site "Admin Center" and in the "Forum Controls" section
		  select "Package Manager".
		  If you have uploaded all of the files in the Enigma 2 package as instructed,
		  you will see a listing for the "LSP Enigma 2.0" Installation Package"

		- Click on the "[ Apply Mod ]" link for the LSP package.

		- If you have FTP access to your site and you skipped the permission settings
		  that were allowed previously, you should see a section for FTP login info.
		  Enter your username and password, etc, as required.

		- Now at the bottom of the "Package Manager - Install Actions" section click
		  on the "[ Proceed ]" link to install the package.

		  NOTE: If you do not see the "proceed" link, you have either missed a step, 
		        or are NOT running SMF 1.0.7! Double check every step carefully.

		- Once the package completes, click the "Home" link in your Main SMF Menu. Do
		  NOT click any other link!  Clicking this link will cause the page to reload
		  which will automatically start the install script for the next steps.

          - If the install script did NOT start, manually browse to the LSP_install.php
            file that your uploaded to your root install folder.
            	Example:  http://www.yourdomain.com/Enigma2/LSP_install.php

	!!! This next step is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!

          - At this time, AND THIS TIME ONLY, you will need to rename 2 of the
		  directories inside the Themes folder of your installation.
		  	1.  Rename the "default" directory to "SMF_default"
			2.  Rename the "Enigma" directory to "default"

               > This file is for all installations of Enigma 2, both new and upgrades.

		- Continue with the install script and read all the information and options
		  you are given.  Follow each step exactly.

		- Once the install script has completed, you will see a link to go to your
		  new portal installation.

		  Please Note:  With the default theme directory changes made 
			during this installation, your web browser will
			have most likely cached all the images used for 
			the SMF theme.  When you click the link above to go to 
			your site, you may get a mixed theme display.  
			Click the refresh button in your web browser to fix the display.  
			If by chance, that does not work, you may need to clear your 
			browser cache. Your users may have the same problem IF you were 
			running SMF prior to installing Enigma2.  If a simple refresh
			does not fix the problem for them, please advise them to clear the 
			cache in their web browser.

		- Login to your portal and browse to the "Admin Center".

!!!        - For ALL installs and upgrades, this step is VERY important.

            > Visit the Manage Permissions area. You will need to set permissions
                for the new settings for ALL groups.

             Because we as developers can not anticipate who should have access
             to specific features and areas, you will need to make that decision.

			 You will need to read each permission carefully, and be sure that is
			 what you want to do.

            > Set Portal Settings to your liking, from the Portal Features
                and Options link. 

          - If you have upgraded from Enigma 1.x and you had custom
            images for your News Categories or Article Sections, add them into
            the appropriate images folder in each theme.

            	NOTE regarding images for themes:  If you create custom Themes and use
            	ANY custom images for that theme, it is recommended that you make a
            	COMPLETE copy of the images directory in each theme.
