How To Install Fig
The settings for FigLite and FigPro are slightly different but the installation is the same
Step 1: Download, Change Settings, and Upload
Download Fig and unzip the files. Change the settings.xml file to your liking and edit the config.php to match. More information on all the settings can be found in the documentation - Fig XML Settings and Fig Config Settings. After editing the settings upload the fig folder to your website.
Step 2: Upload Images
Upload your folders of images to the data folder. The structure of the folders in the data folder will also determine the navigation of Fig. More information on this is in the documentation - Fig Navigation Structure.
Step 3: Change CHMOD settings
On the "data" folder inside fig, change it's CHMOD settings to 777. Most FTP programs support this in some form. In fileZilla you can right-click a folder to change it's CHMOD settings like in the picture below. If you don't like 777 because of security reasons, I have used 755 and it seems to have worked fine.
Step 4: Make the Thumbnails
Navigate your browser to the makethumbs.php file located in the fig folder. This is typically found by going to an address similiar to http://www.yourwebsite.com/fig/makethumbs.php. This will create all the thumbnails from your uploaded images. Run this script each time you add new pictures to your gallery and it will make the neccessary "_thumbs" folders if needed and create your thumbnails. It will only make a thumbnail for an image if one does not already exist.
Step 5: View it
You should now be able to navigate to the index.html file in the fig folder and view your gallery - http://www.yourwebsite.com/fig/index.html or something similiar. You can edit the index.html file in the fig folder to fit your site or you can embed Fig in other files in your website by reading the documentation - Placing Fig In Your Site.
