1. Download the latest IkonBoard from http://www.ikonboard.com/.

You need to register at their forum first before you can go to the free member area.

2. Un-zip the package to a dir under your web document root directory.

3. Preparing for the run-time environment.

[ready] web server: The latest version of RaidenHTTPD.

[required] perl processor: You need to install ActivePerl + mysql dbi, which are included in the tutorial.

[required] mysql: The mysql is not included in RaidenHTTPD; you need to manually install it.

4. Create your database for IkonBoard.

You may start c:/mysql/bin/mysql.exe with the following steps:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

5. Open an instance of Internet Explorer.

In this step, the installer will check your basic environment. Make sure your mysql DBI is installed.

Select mysql.

Enter the necessary login information and the database you just created, ikboard.

Now login with your administrator account.

Click on 'Admin CP'.

Under 'Category Control', click on 'Add New' to create a new category.

Under 'Forum Control', click on 'Add New' to create a new forum.

Now, it is all done. Your ikonboard is now at this URL of 'http://YOUR_SERVER_IP/ikonboard/cgi-bin/'. It would be the best to remove the installer.cgi now.
