Welcome to LinkMachine!                                            
==================================================================


Requirements
================

LinkMachine is a PHP based application that will run on any web server
that supports PHP version 4 or later.



Installation
================

1) This archive contains a file called readme.txt (this file) and a 
directory called "linkmachine/". Using your FTP program, upload the 
"linkmachine/" directory to your site's home directory. Then turn 
on all of the write permissions for your site's "linkmachine/" 
directory. (See below for more information about doing this.)

2) Open a web browser and enter the URL of the file "install.php" 
within your site's "linkmachine/" directory. For instance, if your
site is called "www.widget-world.com", you'd enter the URL:
"http://www.widget-world.com/linkmachine/install.php".

3) Follow the instructions that appear to complete the installation.


Installing LinkMachine Automatically
========================================

If you encounter any problems installing LinkMachine, you may want to
try the easy to use automatic LinkMachine Online Installer:
http://linkmachine.net/install.php


Using LinkMachine
=====================

To access LinkMachine, enter the URL of your site's "linkmachine.php" 
script in the URL bar of a web browser. For example, if your site is 
called "www.widget-world.com", you'd enter the URL:
"http://www.widget-world.com/linkmachine/linkmachine.php".

You may wish to bookmark your site's LinkMachine page for easy access
in the future.

Now you're ready to use LinkMachine! You may find it helpful to read 
the Getting Started pages for an overview of how LinkMachine works:

Changing Write Permissions
==============================

After uploading the "linkmachine/" directory to your site, it's 
important to set the write permissions for that directory to true, so 
that LinkMachine can save new files in the directory. If you do not 
know how to use your FTP program to change a directory's write 
permissions to true, please consult your FTP program's documentation.
One common method used by many FTP programs is to select the directory, 
choose Change Permissions from a right-click or pop-down menu, and turn
on all write permissions. In other FTP programs you would select chmod
instead, and set the permissions number to 777. 

If you don't have an FTP program, we recommend SmartFTP, which can be 
downloaded for free at this site:
