Template Installation

    Template download and installation instruction for SiteBuilder 2.0:

    1. Download template "packs" to your local PC.

    2. Unzip the template pack files.
    Unzip them into their individual templates. I stored my individual templates into a separate folder called Ready to Send.

    TIP: You can highlight multiple zip files and unzip into the same folder.

    3. Upload the individual templates files to SiteBuilder through the administrator's control panel:

    Components -> Templates -> Browse and Upload template

    4. Repeat step 3 for the rest of the templates.

    This will take what seems like forever. I ran two screens at the same time. Hopefully SW-Soft will in the future, allow multple templates to be uploaded at the same time.

    I did attempt to upload a template zip file to the server and uncompress it to /usr/local/sitebuilder/htdocs/repository/templates, but SiteBuilder wouldn't recognize the new template by doing this. It's possible that an entry could have been put into the database using phpMyAdmin, but I needed to have a solid installation and didn't feel like creating possible problems.

    UPDATE: Check out this post regarding using rpm's instead of zips. http://forum.sw-soft.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=25132

    My default installation of PHP, with a fairly new server, wouldn't allow any uploads over 2 megabytes.


    Edited /usr/lib/php.ini
    upload_max_filesize = 2M
    upload_max_filesize = 3M
    RESTART APACHE for this change to take affect.

    Once this is done, the larger templates can finish uploading.

    The larger template files at the time of this writing are:
    • chr-18.zip
    • xeug-14.zip
    • xww-13.zip
    • xet-06.zip
    • xdim-01.zip
    • xet-03.zip
    • xeug-13.zip
    • xsk-14.zip
    I mainly created this list so that anyone performing a search on this problem might more easily find the solution.

    Have a great day!
