This php script generates a little poll system.
It works on any o.s. with a web server (like apache or others), with php module and mysql extension and software.

INSTALL:

- be sure to have php and mysql installed

- unzip the "phpoll.zip" into the location where you want to run the program (inside the web docs of your server, like htdocs for example)

- a directory named "phpoll" will be created, you will start from this location

- if you need, create a new database into your mysql, with phpmyadmin or other programs (phpoll cannot create a new database, but just creates tables inside an existing database)

- open a user agent (browser) and type the address where you have just copied and unzipped the phpoll (e.g.: if you copied the files into the directory "phpoll" into "www.phpoll.com" you should type the address "www.phpoll.com/phpoll/")

- go to the menu "info" for the other instructions on "how to install" the tables and everything you need to run phpoll

(be sure to set the CHMOD write 777 on directory polls/)
