Upgrading From AutoGallery 3.0.x


Upgrading your AutoGallery installation to AutoGallery Pro is very simple. All you need to do is upload all of the files from AutoGallery Pro to your server in the same directory that AutoGallery is currently installed in. You will need to make sure that the AutoGallery Pro files overwrite all of the AutoGallery files. The example below assumes that you have AutoGallery installed in the cgi-bin/toplist directory on your server.
Once all of the files have been uploaded, you will need to set the permissions on all of the files using the table below as an example. You can then bring up the patch.cgi script in your browser which will update the cron.cgi and scanner.cgi files with the correct settings. After that has been successfully completed, change the permissions back to 755 on the cron.cgi and scanner.cgi files.

The final step is to login to the AutoGallery Pro control panel (use the same login information that you had setup for AutoGallery). You may get an error message when you first login, and it is safe to ignore that. Use the Edit Options interface to setup the new variables and options how you want them, and then save your settings. You should now be able to rebuild your pages and continue using the software as normal.

Important Notes

If Perl 5 is not located at /usr/bin/perl be sure to update the first line of all .cgi files with the correct path to Perl on your server.

Make sure you upload all of the files in ASCII mode!
