Trial area setup
Posted by John [Elevated X Support], Last modified by Mark [Elevated X Support] on 11 January 2018 05:29 PM

In order to setup a limited trial area, just follow the following steps:

1) Copy the members area files and folders(except for the 'content' folder) to your local machine. ***Make sure to use binary transfer mode!
2) Create a new folder named 'trial' parallel to your members area.(at the same path level. '/public_html/members/' and  '/public_html/trial/' are on the same path level.)
3) Upload all the files and folders from your local computer to this new 'trial' folder on the server. (***Make sure to use binary transfer mode!)
4) Then have your host create a symlink in the trial folder:
in 'trial' create a symlink named 'content' that points to '/members/content'
5) Edit the 'cmsinclude.ini.php' file of your new trial area and remove the ';' from in front of the line that says ";TRIAL=1"
save the file and re-upload to the trial area.
6 ) Edit the trial settings for that site to your requirements:  '/cms_admin/plugins/trial/trial.php' . THen click 'Save Entry'
