Introduction To RavenNuke™
Welcome to RavenNuke™!
Congratulations! You have chosen to install one of the most secure and fast Content Management Systems (CMS) available. And the even greater news is that it is Free and Open Source! The RavenNuke™ distribution comes with the most up to date -- as of original distribution -- patches from Chatserv and of NukeSentinel™. In addition, NukeSentinel™ is fully installed and configured except for one feature which requires additional instruction (dealt with later on in this manual). RavenNuke™ has its roots in PHP-Nuke the version 7.6. But, there is no comparing the latest version of RavenNuke™ with its roots! The appearance is much the same but the underlying code is vastly different. As of version 2.30.01, RavenNuke™ has over 17,000 changes, corrections, compliances, operational enhancements, and security enhancements.
Please be sure to follow every step in the order listed. This is vital to the successful setup of your site.
In summary, this wiki will walk you through the following steps:
- Set up an empty RavenNuke™ database
- Prepare/install the files
- Install the RavenNuke™ tables
- Configure the main site settings
- Configure NukeSentinel™
- Configure add-ons (if desired)
If you like this software and want to help support the ongoing development, please make a contribution at RavenPHPScripts.
This is a self contained package and there is no additional code to download and/or install. Also, if you are upgrading from an earlier RavenNuke™ release or migrating from another PHP-Nuke installation to RavenNuke™, just read on.
RavenNuke(tm) is application software that must be installed on a server. As with any software that you expose to the Internet, there may be bugs or security problems. Do not install RavenNuke(tm) unless you intend to keep up with security upgrades (please visit RavenPHPScripts for announcements about security updates and code fixes).
