Upgrade instructions

Login as root and follow these steps:
  1. Edit ffsearch.conf to configure Fast File Search.

  2. Now run upgrade.sh. This script will
    • try to determine your Perl path, and modify the first line of each .pl file accordingly
    • install the required Perl modules via CPAN on request.
    • install ffsearch.conf to /etc/ffsearch.conf
    • save the host list, admins and comments to file
    • rebuild database tables
    • restore the host list, admins and comments

  3. Copy the directory "bin" to home directory of user ffsearch (the location of home directory depends on your system configuration, usually the home directory is /home/ffsearch).
       cp -r bin /home/ffsearch

  4. Install the web interface: copy the directory "htdocs/ffsearch" to your htdocs (web server document directory).

  5. Optional: you can add or change the predefined search settings in the beginning of file select.php.

  6. Become user ffsearch:
       su -l ffsearch

  7. Run "ffsearch.pl --complete" to crawl the network.
