    Hello All,

    Here is a simple , sweet short guide on installing PHP-Nuke for the total-newbies :whatchuta . So you won't get your account messed up and having it to reset (which is of course pain in the butt)

    There are few simple steps , you could take :-

    1. Login to your cPanel

    (http://xxxx.x10hosting.com/cpanel) (replace xxxx - with your userID)

    2. Now click Fantastico

    3. Click PHPNuke

    4. Press Install

    5. Now it will ask you some questions

    Just fill it up , now for the "Install in directory" , put nuke in it. THe main reason is , even if you messed PHP-Nuke up , you will not mess the entire site . This is because its install in the folder. Got it messed up , then just delete the folder..Vola , you have it recovered. (P.S - Do not forget to use the Backup function)

    The next step , will teach you how to forward your site to the Nuke. So instead of visitors seeing a blank page , they will taken to your Nuke site (which is located at www.youruserid.x10hosting.com/nuke)

    6. Now click the "Home" Button in cPanel X. You will be taken to cPanel X Main Page/ aka Control Panel Page

    7. Now click Redirects

    8. Leave the "Add Redirect:
    http://xxxx.x10hosting.com/ >> http://xxxx.x10hosting.com/nuke

    replace xxx with your USER ID.

    9 . Now hit the Permeant button and click Add

    10 . Vola , Everything is set

    So even if you want to 'delete" php-nuke or replace your entire site. You will have everything there

    Oh yeah , do not forget to use the "Backup" Function !
