Let’s imagine that you have website http://www.website.com/ and you want to install script there.
  1. Create folder is-it-online (use any other name) in root of your domain. Once created it can be reached by URL: http://www.website.com/is-it-online/
  2. Make sure that folder is-it-online has permissions 0755; and all php-files have permissions 0644.
  3. Open URL http://www.website.com/is-it-online/ in browser and follow “Quick Installation” procedure.
  4. Go to admin panel and take “Cron URL” from “Settings” page (Cron URL looks like that: http://www.website.com/is-it-online/cron.php?key=XXXXXXXX). Set cron job to run this URL.
