Congratulations with your choice of Content Management System (CMS)! You have
chosen the easiest to use CMS on the market, but that doesn't mean it lacks
cool functions!



Installation
############

1.)	Download the latest version (since you are reading this, you have probably done so already)
2.)	Unzip the files to a directory on your machine
3.)	Upload all the files and folders to the root directory of your website (ie. the directory
	on the server where your website is), maintaining the directory structure	
4.)	You shall now have the following files in the root directory:

		admin.php
		articles.php
		downloads.php
		forum.php
		guestbook.php
		index.php
		news.php
		search.php
		stats.php
		users.php

	And the following files in the "articles" subfolder:

		cats.txt
	
	And the following files in the "data" subfolder:
		
		artdets.php
		blocked.txt
		class.php
		config.php
		count.txt
		dldets.php
		downloads.txt
		forumdets.php
		guestbook.txt
		guestdets.php
		latest.txt
		members.txt
		menu.txt
		news.txt
		newsdets.php
		online.txt
		page_footer.php
		page_header.php
		polls.txt
		stat.gif
		stats.txt
		style.css
		userdets.php
		version.txt

	And the following files in the "forum" subfolder:

		cats.txt

	The "images" subfolder should contain 23 .gif images and the file "codes.txt"

	You should have the following files in the "language" subfolder:

		forum.txt
		polls.txt
		search.txt
		universal.txt
		users.txt
	
	The subfolders "files" and "txt" shall contain a file called "index.htm". This file may be deleted
	after you are done uploading.

	The following file shall be in the "pages" subfolder:
	
		index.php

5.)	Chmod the all subfolders and the files within them to 777 (not the files in the root folder). (Chmod usually only has 
	effects on UNIX servers. Open admin.php as mentioned below to show which system you're on. Chmod has to do 
	with permissions, and if the values confuses you, just make sure that all the mentioned files are both 
	readable, writable and executable.)

6.)	Open admin.php in your browser, login with username 'siteman' and password 'siteman', and click on
	'Change details' to change the username and password into whatever you want.

Reset
#####

If you do something wrong, so that Siteman stops working, you can reset it by uploading all the files
in the "data" subfolder and the "language" subfolder.

Upgrade
#######

When you upgrade from an older version, in most cases, you won't need to upload the page_header.php, page_footer.php
and style.css. This gives you the advantage that you won't need to create your page layout from scratch again.
