Web Directories … There was a time when there were few web directories on the internet. But today (almost) every webmaster has a directory.

Everyone (well most of them) claim that their directories are a Human Edited Web Directory! But are you sure..?

With the raising no.of directories there surely has be some standard for reviewing links and accepting them.

If you are the one who runs a mysql query and accepts all links as once or doesn’t bother to see the websites submitted and you just approve them.. well then I am extremely sorry this article is not for you.

There are about more than 20,000 directories running on phpld today and everyday a lot more are made.

A lot of directory newbies don’t know how to install phpld directory! And there are more of free phpld version directories coming up, hence the tutorial is based on the same.

Here are the steps:

  • Step 1 : Unzip the download file you downloaded and upload it in your server.
  • Step 2 : Now using your ftp program like Cute ftp , smart ftp or coreftp change the permissions of the following files and folder to 777 which is writing permissions.
    - include/config.php
    - temp/
    - temp/adodb
    - temp/cache
    - temp/templates
  • Step 3 : If some folder are missing kindly create the same.
  • Step 4 : The next and the most important step is goto your database server and create a database and user, so that the install of phpld moves further. Don’t forget to give the full right to user you created to the database!
  • Step 5 : Now enter the path in your browser to start your installation process.
  • Step 6 : The install will guild you on how to install your directory and shall also let you know if there are any mistakes in your setup.
  • Step 7 : Don’t forget to delete your install folder of the index.php file under the install folder from your ftp and change the config.php file permission back to 644 which lives in the include folder, since if its left anyone might get into your directory!
  • You nearly done? Rest you should be wise enough to do like making admin profile etc…? If not… well forget about making a directory!
