it's been a while since last palm-fe release. currently this project has
the 'abandoned' status. however I have a little free time these days so
I will try to fix it and see if it is worth to revive the project once
again. if the result is promising there will be 'official' release.
palm-fe is fairly old project and I don't like a lot of its code :)
yet there are good ideas so I'll try to use them.
if you liked the old palm-fe or you are somehow interested in such
simple personal info managers, you can help a lot with any feedback.
and here is quick install guide:
unpack palm-fe3 package to a directory you want. in this example I'll
suppose this directory is my home: /home/cade. you'll also need web
directory where you will install visible parts of palm-fe3. I'll use
also my personal web dir: /home/cade/public_html/p3.
here are the commands required to install palm-fe with these parameters:
tar xzvf palm-fe3-cvs-snapshot.tar.gz
cp pro/sample_index.cgi ~/public_html/p3/index.cgi
chmod +x ~/public_html/p3/index.cgi
cp -r themes ~/public_html/p3/
edit 'data/passwd' file and put accounts you want inside in this format:
passwords are plaintext, there are no important reasons to encode them.
now you have to become 'root'
chown -R nobody data
(suppose 'nobody' is the owner of the httpd process!)
go to httpd config and allow index.cgi scripts!
exit 'root' account
edit index.cgi, remove all but these lines:
last 3 lines should be as shown but the first line is important!
you MUST replace the path after -I with your actual palm-fe install dir.
at this point palm-fe should be ready.
if you have problems first check httpd's error_log file then you can

I'm sorry for the messy docs and code, I hope things will be cleared up
in the future. this is development release!
