About Links Organizer

Links Organizer is multidomain solution. That means that you install it once on a single site and from there you can manage the link trades across all of your sites, including those on other servers. The linktrades are displayed via PHP includes files.

Here's step by step what You need to do once you just downloaded the script:

Installation
Installation is as easy as unpacking the script package on your computer and uploading the files to your server. The only special thing here is that you need to upload in BINARY mode. Once uploaded, launch the installer file by opening the url to lo-install.php in your web browser.

Initial Settings
Immediately following installation of the script, login to the admin panel and click on Setttings->Configure from the top navigation menu. Ensure that the field "PHP Binary Location" has the proper location to your system command line php version and then add your license License Key field. Your license key can be obtained within the Cheapest Web Software owner's lounge.Finally, enter the email address you want to associate with this script for notification purposes.

Cronjobs
The script requires 1 cronjob to be setup on your server. By default, the script tries to install the cronjob by itself during the installation procedure. However, in most cases, due to server security setups, this often does not happen. For that reason, you must manually create the necessary cronjob, or have your hosting provider do it for you. Navigate to Settings->Cronjobs from the top navigation menu and at the bottom, the exact cronjob necessary is posted there. This is exactly what you need to add for your cronjob.

  2. Single Signup Form - This form is used to to display the trade submit form for just that one site.
