  • Installation from a MAC

    I tried a search but it won't include the word MAC in searches

    I'm at the very beginning of installation here:

    tools.php - This file must be uploaded to the admincp folder and allows you to perform certain tasks should your board go down or you accidentally lock yourself out of the Admin Control Panel. This file must be deleted immediately after use or it will cause a SEVERE security problem.

    Maybe it's because I'm tired but do I do that now? And how on a MAC?

    Thanks in advance!

    tools.php should never be uploaded unless it's absolutely necessary for troubleshooting.

    The readme file that comes with the software tells you exactly what you need to do to install.

        It DOES say that... Why do you think the folder is named "Do Not Upload"?

        The Readme file also states not to upload the contents of that folder.

          stuck here because I'm on my MAC:

          Uploading vBulletin Scripts to Your Web Server


          How is this done on a MAC?

            Either with a FTP program or through your website admin panel.

            I've been using Fetch for years.

              I use Transmit.app on my Mac to transfer files from my hard drive to the web server.
              And I use TextMate.app to edit the config.php file.

                there's a note added at the bottom of that page in the manual:
                The example FTP program given above only works for Windows. If you're using a Mac, try using the demo of the program found at url=www.ftpclient.com/.
                I did that, it's downloaded and I used TextEdit to edit already it's ready . . . unfortunately I'm too green w/ this MAC. Up until now I haven't done much other than surf and check e-mail. I am not sure how to use the FTP program

                  Download this application: http://fetchsoftworks.com/

                  Install it and then run it.

                  Then follow the instructions on this page: http://fetchsoftworks.com/FetchWebHe...uickGuide.html

                  If you need to know what your FTP connection information is then your web host can provide that for you. Usually its sent to you in an email when you register for an account.

                  I'd be more detailed but I don't have a Mac.

                          no! I actually have very fast service on FIOS. . . odd yes? Have you heard of filezilla? I've never seen my MAC want to take so long on a download.
