Installing the MAS
("MAS" short for Mysidia Adoptables Script)

So, some users find installing the MAS quite difficult, and at first, I had no clue, but I spent 3 days to explore and figure things out (I have no idea on coding so that's why I spent ages).

Because I'm that kind :D I'm going to help you install MAS so you won't have to waste your time, this tutorial is aimed directly for 000WebHost. So if you are installing MAS to a different site host, there may be some different steps to this, so just adapt it to your host.

1. Download the MAS
Check the announcements, and click the latest thread on the script, and download the ZIP file.

2. Unzip it
Right click on the file and click "Extract All".

3. Login to 000WebHost
Register if you haven't already.

4. Create a site
If you haven't already of course.

5. Go to the Control Panel of the site
Go to "List Accounts" and click on "Go to CPanel".

6. Access the MySQL section
Click the image:

7. Create a new database and user
These details could be anything you like. When you click "Create Database", KEEP THE PAGE UP, don't go to a different page, keep it up!

8. Download File Zilla
Download File Zilla because the 000WebHost uploader is dodgy and misses files when you select them.

9. Install and open File Zilla
Once you have opened File Zilla, at the top there is a form which says "Host", "Username", "Password" and "Port".

10. Go back to the tab/window that you have your MySQL Database details on
Fill the form in with those details, ignore the "Port" field and click "Quickconnect".

11. Once connected
You will see a box on the left side, open the MAS unzipped file up, and enter the "adoptables" folder. Select ALL files INSIDE the "adoptables" folder and double click into "Public_html" on the other box at the right. And then DRAG the selected files from the left box to the right box.

12. Go back to 000WebHost CPanel
And click on "File Manager":

13. Click on "Public_html"
You will find all the files transferred (if your transfer has finished, check File Zilla application). Find "default.php" and DELETE it.

14. Click on "inc"
Check the box next to "config.php", and click the CHMOD button, type in "777" and click the green tick. You have just changed the permissions to config.php.

15. Click the blue back arrow
And then click "Up" and click on "picuploads".

16. Check the boxes next to "gif", "jpg" and "png"
And CHMOD them to 777.

17. Click the blue back arrow
Click "Up", and then click on "inc".

18. Open a new tab/window
And type in this: Change "" to your site's address. And click enter.

19. Follow the steps
When it says you have successfully installed it, go back to the File Manager and check the box next to "config.php", CHMOD it to 644. And then click the back arrow, "Up" and check the box next to "install"... DELETE the folder.

I try to go to the with my site's details filled in, but it leads me here:

I did all the steps...

Hall of Famer 01-21-2011 12:35 PM

Did you specify the correct database server? It is not localhost in

The Codfin Keeper 01-21-2011 12:37 PM

Yes, I have it that way, and I'm at installation. Just found the problem - the files needed were in a seperate folder, not public_html. It's fine now :)

Hall of Famer 01-21-2011 12:38 PM

Alright, glad it works for you. I will see if I can get hypercam so that video tutorials can be made in future, possibly after Mys v1.2.0 is out.

ChibiMaestro 01-21-2011 12:48 PM

Glad you sorted it out TCK :)

I'll make one maybe this or next week :)
I have homework to do in the weekends, so I might either do it today, or starting from Monday: the week :)

The Codfin Keeper 01-21-2011 12:58 PM

Okay, another question.

I've finished all the steps in the tut, but when I visit my site, I get this:

PHP Error Message

Warning: mysql_numrows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/a3060923/public_html/inc/functions.php on line 187

Free Web Hosting

PHP Error Message
