UPGRADE QuickTalk to v2.5
==============================

To upgrade from version 1.9 or 2.x to 2.5, you can proceed with a normal installation (see here after).

  Remarque: If your board allows user avatar and upload, it's recommended to not delete the /avatar/ and /upload/ folders.
  and make a backup of your bin/config.php file.
  Other files and folders can be deleted before installing the new release.

==============================
INSTALLATION of QuickTalk v2.5
==============================

BEFORE starting the installation procedure, make sure you know:
- The type of database you will use (MySQL, SQLserver, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Informix SQLite or FireBird).
- Your database host (the name of your database server, often "localhost")
- The name of your database (where the QuickTalk can install the tables).
- The user name for this database (having the right to create table).
- The user password for this database.


1. Upload the application on your web server
--------------------------------------------
Just send (ftp) all the files and folders on your webserver (for example in a folder /quicktalk/).

  Remarque: If you are making an update, do not overwrite the file bin/config.php and the existing /avatar/ or /upload/ folder.


2. Configure the permissions
----------------------------
This step is very important !
Without this configuration, the installation programme will not work and the database will not be configured.

Change the permission of the file /bin/config.php to make it writable (chmod 777).
Change the permission of the folders /avatar/ and subfolders to make them writable (chmod 777).
Change the permission of the folders /upload/ and subfolders to make them writable (chmod 777).


3. Start the installation
-------------------------
From your web browser, start the installation script: install/index.php
(i.e. Type the url http://www.yourwebsite.com/quicktalk/install/index.php)


4. Clean up
-----------
When previous steps are completed, you can delete the /install/ folder on your website and set the permission for /bin/config.php to readonly.
