Making a webpage with a script
free script

I am making an article directory with a free php script. I uploaded the free script to my cpanel, no problems. Now I really don't know where to go from here. It comes with the templates and everything I need I guess. I use front page to make all my webpages but this is different.


I just opened up a new page in front page, white and nothing on it. I am testing this process by typing the website title at the top. i save ect and upload it to my c panel. But it does not connect to my script that is suppose to have everything. Normally once you upload your index page you can type in your url and walla, theres your home page.

This is a database script. Anyone know what to do? Thanks

You're basically working with two different applications that, while you can make them play nicely together, do not for your purposes.

As you said, everything you need should be in the PHP package, so forget about Frontpage for now. The PHP script should come with some sort of documentation that tells you how to get started. What you have to look for is a file called Admin or something along those lines. Depending on where you were supposed to upload the files, it might be cgi-bin/phpscript/admin.php or similar.

You will probably need to set up a database from within cpanel and set the options within the script accordingly. Your database login name, password etc.
