*************************
*	WIKINDX	v4.2.x	*
*************************

After unzipping into your web server's web folder, read the README files in 
wikindx4/trunk/docs/index.html

If you are upgrading a previous installation of WIKINDX 4.1.x to 4.2, 
simply overwrite the existing installation.  Read the CHANGELOG for any new variables added to 
config.php.dist that should be copied to config.php.

Otherwise, if you are upgrading, your previous WIKINDX version should be v3.8.2 or 
v4.1.x.  v4.2.x will detect the earlier database and will upgrade it at first use.  If 
you have a database from an even earlier version, you should first upgrade it to v3.8.2 
using the WIKINDX v3.8.2 code then convert that database to v4.2.x using the v4.2.x code.

For a v3.8.2 upgrade, you will need to copy config.php.dist to config.php and edit the 
latter file.

At the very least, for a fresh install, you should create a database, assign a 
wikindx user to it with GRANT ALL permissions, and copy config.php.dist to 
config.php and edit the latter file.

In all cases, ensure that 
'files/', 
'attachments/',
'templates/compiled_templates', 
'styles/cache' and
'styles/bibliography/' 
and the XML files within 
'styles/bibliography/xxx/' 
folders are writable by the web server user (usually 'nobody'). If you are running 
WIKINDX locally on Windows (using something like WAMP), you can skip this step
as the folders will be writable by default.

Additionally, in any plugin folder, index.php and the config.php file (if it 
exists) should also be writable. If you are running WIKINDX
locally on Windows (using something like WAMP or XAMPP), you can skip this step
as the folders will be writable by default.


LOCALIZATIONS:
Localizations for v4 should be unzipped with their directory structure 
into wikindx4/languages/ and the localization directory and files 
within made writeable by the web user.  (v4 lets administrators configure
localizations directly within the web browser interface.)

Localizations for versions of WIKINDX prior to v4.1.x can be imported using the 
localization plugin.  Missing messages in the converted files will be replaced 
automatically by English messages when using WIKINDX.


PLUGINS:
Plugins for v4 should be unzipped with their directory structure 
into wikindx4/plugins/ and the plugin directory and files 
within made writeable by the web user.  (v4 lets administrators configure
plugins directly within the web browser interface.)

Plugins for versions of WIKINDX prior to v4.2.x cannot be used with 4.2.x.  v4.1.x 
plugins will be configurable in the Admin|Plugins menu but will not be visible in 
the menu system.  You should download the latest plugins from the Sourceforge site.


USING SVN:
This is complex software developed by simple humans -- it will have bugs.  If 
these bugs are reported on the SourceForge tracker 
(https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=94435&atid=4842858)
then they can be quickly dealt with.  It is not efficient to make a full version 
release for every bug fix (or new feature) so such fixes will be uploaded to the 
SVN repository until a sufficient number have accumulated to justify a new version 
release.

Therefore, if you wish to keep up with the very latest post-bug fix, pre-version 
release WIKINDX, you should access the SVN repository.  Details of how to access 
it (it's very easy) using client software can be found here:
https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Subversion

and the base SVN address you need is:
svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/wikindx/code/trunk

The main code is under trunk/ while plugins are maintained under plugins/

or. . .
you can just browse to https://sourceforge.net/p/wikindx/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/ and 
click on 'Download Snapshot'
