Install

 

1 Download Wimpy

If you haven't done so already, download the Wimpy ZIP page from the downloads section of this site.

After downloading the ZIP package, you'll need to unzip the file.

The unzipped package should expand to a folder on your PC, and contain a list of files similar to the image to the right.

NOTES
You'll notice there are two folders: "skins" and "getid3". You should ensure your un-zipping software is set up to "maintain directory structure" when unzipping -- this helps keep things organized.

 

 

2Create a new folder named "wimpy" on your web site.

We will refer to this folder as your "Wimpy Installation Folder"(WIF) throughout the documentation. We recommend putting the WIF at the "root" of your web site so that the WIF can be accessed using a URL similar to:

http://www.yoursite.com/wimpy/

NOTES
- The WIF can be named anything you want. We're just using "wimpy" for example purposes.
- To locate your web site's "root" see: "Locating the Web Root"

 

 

3Upload files (and folders) to the newly created "wimpy" folder.

After the upload is complete (this should take about a minute or so), navigate to the WIF by entering the URL in your browser's address bar:

http://www.yoursite.com/wimpy
-- or --
http://www.yoursite.com/wimpy/index.html

The resulting page should look similar to:
