Installing

CcMail is very simple to install, however, if you don’t know anything about php you can read this Step-by-Step Installation Guide (bundled). If you are a little experienced, the following guide will be sufficient.

First of all, download this package: CcMail 1.0.2 (318.8 KiB, 47,302 hits). Extract it somewhere and edit config.php with your username/password. You can add more than one user.
Then, upload to your web space the whole folder ccmail/, and include in the php pages in which you want to display the Subscription Form the following line:

<?php include "ccmail/include.php";?>

This line will be replaced, when php will be processed, by the complete form.
If the form is too big for your pages, or you would like a more compact form, you can include the other file:

<?php include "ccmail/include1.php";?>

or put the following HTML code in your pages (it will bring the user to the complete form):


<form method="get" action="ccmail/index.php">
<b>Insert Email Address:</b><br>
<input name="address" size="15">
<input type="submit" value="Go">
</form>

If you want to redirect the user to another page, edit “action” method Finally, open admin.php, authenticate and edit your settings!
If you experience some problems, like permissions denying, try to chmod EVERYTHING inside data/ directory, including the folder itself, to 775, or 777.
To reset CcMail, simply delete data/ directory.

Upgrading

If you upgrade from version RC1, you have to move settings/ folder inside data/ directory first.
Else, just do the following: replace ALL the files in ccmail/ directory, preserving data/ directory, with the files of the new version. If you have modified config.php file, make sure to change the new config.php file.

Requirements

  • Php > 4.1
  • NO DATABASE REQUIRED

License

CcMail comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. The script is under GPL license. Sources can be freely distributed, and usage is totally free.
If you modify (read: improve) the script, let me know: programmers are welcomed.

Current development & roadmap

Everybody loves roadmaps, but I really can’t give one. I started developing version 2.0 in summer 2006, but i stopped at about 50% due to lack of time. A man working for a software company wrote entirely the mysql backend… I imagine he carried on developing but i have no news. However, if you want, I may give you the current, abandoned, code. I have no plan to resume ccmail development at the moment. I lack time and will :)
