Installing Comment Plugin

I have downloaded and extracted CommentPlugin. Now what is the command to run CommentPlugin _installer?

You should be able to copy the CommentPlugin _installer into the root of your installation and run it directly. "perl CommentPlugin _installer" It will download the tgz file and install. If your webserver cannot access the internet, you also need to download and put the .tgz file into the same directory as the installer. the -n option will simulate installation.

For help, execute it with the usage parameter.
   perl CommentPlugin_installer usage

You probably need to run the installer as either the web server user. or as root. And then make sure the files it installed are owned by the web-server user.

Hi George, thanks for your reply.

I am installing it on Windows XP. I have installed foswiki inside C:\www\htdocs and CommentPlugin inside C:\www\htdocs\foswiki

Should I run the following at command prompt, which path (like C:\www\htdocs\foswiki\tools) do i need to go for the following command to work?

I tried C:\www\htdocs\foswiki\CommentPlugin>perl CommentPlugin _installer

It ddnt work
perl CommentPlugin_installer usage

It showed an error: Could not load C:\www\htdocs\foswiki\CommentPlugin\tools\

I checked the folder CommentPlugin, but there is not tools folder.
A couple of points; first, you don't need to install the comment plugin, it is pre-installed in all foswiki releases. Second, even if you do have to re-install it for some reason, there is no requirement to run the installer. All you have to do is extract it (in the root of your installation) and run configure to enable it.
