Choose one of the two options depending on whether you want your website to be accessed directly from
https://mydomain.com or from
sudo chmod 774 /var/www/html sudo chgrp wadmins /var/www/html
https://mydomain.com/subfolder. Then make sure that the permissions of the folder
/var/www/htmlare set to
774and that the group is
wadmins. You can achieve this with the commands:
mkdir /var/www/html/subfolder sudo chmod 774 /var/www/html/subfolder sudo chgrp wadmins /var/www/html/subfolder
The hidden folder may already exist if you used the instructions from this website to create a simple content management system. The folder created had the name
If the folder does not exist, then you need to create it. Use the following commands.
sudo mkdir /webFiles sudo chmod -R 775 /webFiles/ sudo chgrp -R wadmins /webFiles/
cd /var/www/html/subfolder wget https://gradeyard.com/downloads/gradeyard.tar.gz tar -xzvf gradeyard.tar.gz rm gradeyard.tar.gz chgrp wadmins js chgrp wadmins css chgrp wadmins src
Search the file
mainText_start.txt for every occurrence of the word
gradeyard. Change it to something that makes more sense for your website.
Open the file
_/cookieName*!_. If several websites share the same name of the cookie, then your users (and yourself) will have trouble keeping open sessions on different sites.
Execute the following 8 commands exactly as they are written
mv bossDB_start.txt bossDB_2285755081.txt mv eIDT_start.txt eIDT_2285755081.txt mv mainText_start.txt mainText_2285755081.txt mv uns_start.txt uns_2285755081.txt mv src/dockerCreation src/dockerCr2285755081 sed -i 's/_start/_2285755081/g' setupWSAll.txt mv setupWSAll.txt st2513317567e.txt sed -i 's/_hiddenNum/_2285755081/g' src/dockerCr2285755081/Dockerfile mv src src2513317567e
Here is a summary of what these commands are doing. The initializing files
uns_start.txt should be partially renamed. The word
start in each of them should be replaced with one secret code that is impossible to guess. The file
setupWSAll.txt should be modified and informed of this change. This website has randomly generated the secret codes in the commands above and you are suggested to use them. The commands will correctly update all the files.
setupWSAll.txt is also renamed with the above commands.
If you want to have the cloning mode then you need to follow these steps. (If the cloning mode is enabled, then the administrator can authorize a regular user
sampleUserName to have personal website under
https://mydomain.com/subfolder/sites/sampleUserName. It is required that
sampleUserName is not administrator. Administrators have to be first demoted for their cloning rights to be effective.)

/mainFolderDB*!. By default it is
/webFiles/mainTeaching. If it is not, then modify the commands below accordingly. Also, identify the name of folder for the clones. By default it is
sites. If it is something else (e.g.
something_else), then replace the word
sys_something_elsein the commands below.

Point your browser to the web address of the new website.
It may take a minute or two for the website to load the first time. The program
index.cgi will realize that databases do not exist. It will create all the databases. They will be placed in the folder
Note: If something goes wrong, and you want to delete all data and have a fresh start, all you have to do is delete the folder
webFiles/mainTeaching. Then point the browser to your website and the fresh databases will be installed.
The administrator has the username
mainAdmin and the password
t3mpP@ss. You should log in, click on the button with the name
mainAdmin, and change the password. Do this as soon as you get the chance. Everybody who knows about this website also knows about the password
Log out from the account
mainAdmin. Then point the browser to
https://yourWebsite.com/index.cgi?page=registration. Fill the registration form for the new user. Let's say that you chose
caesar as the username.
If you log in as
caesar you will see how this new user does not have administrator rights.
mainAdmin can promote the user
caesar to the role of the administrator. If you log in as
mainAdmin, you can click on the button
Users database. Click on the newly created user
caesar. Replace the code in the box with:
_command_ _nc***_modifyUserAdvanced_/nc***_ username: _nc***_caesar_/nc***_ firstName (!*! for no change): _nc***_!*!_/nc***_ lastName (!*! for no change): _nc***_!*!_/nc***_ password (!*! for no change): _nc***_!*!_/nc***_ email (!*! for no change): _nc***_!*!_/nc***_ _nc***_yes_/nc***_ _nc***_yes_/nc***_ _/command_and click Submit.
If you go back to the user database you will now see that
caesar is an administrator and you cannot click on its username. You can still edit
caesar directly by clicking on the button
Commands and explicitly typing the action that you want to take. For example,
caesar can demote
mainAdmin from the role of the administrator. This can be easily done if
caesar types the following
_command_ _nc***_modifyUserAdvanced_/nc***_ username: _nc***_mainAdmin_/nc***_ firstName (!*! for no change): _nc***_!*!_/nc***_ lastName (!*! for no change): _nc***_!*!_/nc***_ password (!*! for no change): _nc***_!*!_/nc***_ email (!*! for no change): _nc***_!*!_/nc***_ _nc***_no_/nc***_ _nc***_no_/nc***_ _/command_
Warning: Do not edit the users
superuser. These are special accounts without passwords. They are safe from hackers. No-one can guess a password that does not exist. However, other administrators are assuming the roles of these special users in certain situations. Deleting these accounts can cause a damage to the website.
