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'
