scripts default icon@lex Guestbook Publisher's description

This is a free advanced guestbook script written in PHP with a MySQL backend.

The database tables can be configured and the messages can be backed as often as required.


Using your FTP software (i.e. Filezilla), send the whole agb folder (rename it if you wish, i.e. "guestbook") to the server hosting your website.
Installation is automatic, you'll just have to enter some informations and follow instructions : open you Internet navigator (Internet Explorer, Firefox...) and go to the "setup.php" page in the main folder (i.e. : http://www.my_site.com/agb/setup.php).
The administration part is in the folder "admin" of the script, url like: http://www.my_site.com/agb/admin/
The publicly visible guestbook is at the root of the script, url like: http://www.my_site.com/agb/
