Admin Login doesn't work
If you can't login into the admin area check that you are using the password
from settings.php ($website["password"] - default is 123). Also
check register globals variable to be set on in php
settings : register_globals must be on.
The system uses the standart php mail() function so any problems related to
emails are caused by the server configuration.
Contact your server administrator to solve this problems.
Be sure you set the 'Admin register sender address' to your email addres when
editing webmaster settings.
If the mail functions works but you get strange warnings like "Warning:
mail(): SMTP server response: 552 No recipients identified for message in...",
and you can't change the server configuration, you can just supress the warnings
"error_reporting (E_ERROR | E_PARSE);" added to the begining of
that php script's code.
You must have the database, username already created and the user
must have rights for that database to create/alter tables and insert data.
Also check your mysql version. Try running the sql queries from webmaster/sql/
in phpmyadmin (free mysql tool downloadable from the internet) to see if there
are any configuration problems with your server.
If uploaded pictures are not displayed check the pictures folder
to be write enabled.

- Paypal Automated Processing
In order to set up your website to accept Paypal payments you yourself
need a Paypal account in good standing. You will also need to make sure
that you change the IPN information for your Paypal account to post IPN
data to your website. For example, if your website is http://example.com
you would set the IPN post to go to http://example.com/payprocess/p_process.php.
Test it. If it doesn't work you will have to process the payments from
the webmaster area.
- Importing data
There is a script webmaster/import1.php for importing members from deltascripts
php matchmaker. You must use the same database and the new passwords will
be the email addresses of the members. You can sponsor the development of
new import scripts.
