|Getting started with the program
(If you haven't done so, please also Install CyberOffice Shopping Cart on your computer.)
CyberOffice Club (CyberClub) is a core component of SmartWin CyberOffice eCommerce. It is a premier Web-based business tool which lets you accept and manage membership online. The program is designed to work in conjunction with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). It consists a set of HTML and ASP pages, an ActiveX component (CyberBuild.Dll) and an ODBC-compliant database.
Microsoft IIS or a cut-down version of it, Microsoft Personal Web Server (PWS), is free from Microsoft. It can be installed/enabled on most Windows operating systems. The setup program assumes that IIS has been installed and is running on your computer. If this is not the case, Check here on PWS/IIS installation. Run the setup program again after installing IIS or PWS.
CyberClub supports a variety of databases via the standard ODBC interface , including MS Access (97 and above), MS SQL (6.5 and above), Sybase Adaptive, and MySQL. The default is MS Access. For any other database, a working knowledge of it will be required.
Check your PWS or IIS settings on the site (Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Services Manager -> Web Sites -> Properties -> Home Directory). Set Execute Permissions to either "Scripts Only" (recommended) or "Scripts and Executables".
The setup program automatically places the appropriate files on to the appropriate locations and properly registers them. However, file permissions might still need to be set for a special user account named IUSR_xxx (where "xxx" is the name of the computer).
Use "Windows Explorer -> File the File(s) -> Right-mouse-click -> Properties" to change the settings. Make sure you
You need to view the Web pages through a Web server for any of the above mentioned links to function correctly. If you are having troubles, try this link http://localhost/membership or http://localhost/cybermall/membership. You will be seeing the same page, but going through a Web server.
CyberClub can work as a standalone or in conjunction with CyberOffice Shopping Cart (CyberShop, required) and CyberOffice Warehouse Builder (CyberBuild, optional). The program provides a generic membership service to any programs (in particular to CyberShop and CyberClub). It is fully customizable.
