Access Panda is distributed as both a tar.gz file and a zip file.
You can use your favorite compression program, or you can type one
of these UNIX commands to decompress Access Panda:
tar zxf AccessPanda.tar.gz
Please see your system administrator if you have any questions.
Install Access Panda in a subdirectory that your web server can see.
This directory (and your account) should also have CGI privileges.
If you want to hide your Access Panda from outsiders, apply the same
kind of password protection that you otherwise would for web pages
(our web server uses files called .htaccess and .htpasswd, but yours
may work differently).
Make sure that CGI.pm has been installed in either your Perl library
directory, or in the directory where Access Panda lives. You may need some
help from your system administrator to do this.
Make sure that AccessPanda.cgi is executable by your operating system.
In UNIX, you would ensure this by typing this command:
chmod 775 AccessPanda.cgi
Open your web browser and type your Access Panda's URL into its URL field:
http:// ... /AccessPanda.cgi
If it asks you where your log file is, please tell it. If you don't know,
please ask your system administrator. If you'd like it to remember where your
log file is, you're going to have to know a little Perl 5.0. Edit AccessPanda.cgi
to reflect the location of your log file.
Feed Access Panda regularly (bamboo is the main food that pandas eat).
