How to Install FAQMasterFlex through Cpanel

FAQMasterFlex is an open source online application for people who want to maintain a Frequently Ask Questions (FAQ) page on their websites. FAQMasterFlex is licensed under GNU General Public License. Users can use, modify and redistribute any version of FAQMasterFlex as specified by the terms in the GNU General Public License. FAQMasterFlex is distributed freely for the public but it does not promise its users any warranty.

FAQMasterFlex allows you to create as many categories as you want. You can also set unlimited numbers of questions/answers. Administrators will be able to easily add, edit or delete the question through the administration panel.

FAQMasterFlex operates on the HTTP Basic authentication mechanism. The HTTP Basic authentication mechanism works with PHP compiled in CGI mode. To upgrade FAQMasterFlex, you should go to Fantastico > FAQ > FAQMasterFlex. You will see an upgrade link next to the domain where you installed the FAQMasterFlex. Click on the upgrade link and it will automatically be updated to the latest version. If you do not see any update link, this means there is currently no newer version for the software.

After you have completed the installation, you have to enable the register_globals variable in your account. To do this, you must upload a file called php.ini in your public html folder. If you installed FAQMasterFlex in a different directory than the root directory, you should upload the php.ini file in the directory. In the php.ini file, put in the code register_globals = ON.
