| Once you download and unzipped the WebCard program, you will have two folders (upgrade and upload) and two files (readme.html and whatsnew.txt). The readme file contains installation instructions which are very simple.|
You should get a confirmation page indicating that the database tables and admin account has been successfully created. The program will also automatically lock the installer at this point. Your next step is to login as the administrator.
Finally, you will arrive at the WebCards Administration Centre. On the left, you will see the menu. The Configuration section is where you will set the general options for the website from its name to the payment portal. Your first task will be to upload a few ecards into the system so that we can test the program. You will want to consider how you will group your ecards into categories such as Holiday and General.
Other options we will take a look at include the card components such as stamps, poems and emoticons. If you will be using FlashR ecards, the background music is included in the swf file and we will not need to offer any audio files. However, if your ecards are jpgs images, you will want to upload some audio files. The Admin area is also where we set the theme template, manage and ban users and control the events calendar.
