9b57e848 62. Make Apache (or whatever web server) happy with PHP4.
83. Unarchive SquirrelMail in a subdirectory that is accessable by the
f8f9bed9 9 web server. EX: /home/httpd/html/squirrelmail-0.1
9b57e848 114. Edit the config file, config/config.php

9b57e848 135. Change the permissons for the "data/" directory so it's writable to
65b14f90 14 the web server. Under Red Hat Linux 6.0, this is done by:
33daaa7d 16 chown -R nobody data
17 chgrp -R nobody data
65b14f90 18
19 "nobody" is the user and group for the apache server for this
20 example.
9b57e848 226. Point your browser to the location you specified in step 2.
