Basic Installation

The "installation" process is simply a matter of uploading the files to your website via FTP.

If you are unfamiliar with "FTP", click here for a detailed explanation. 

1. Download Rave

If you haven't done so already, download the Rave package to your PC.

Click here to download the Rave Package.


2. Un-zip (decompress) the Rave Package.

Un-zipping the download package is generally handled through your operating system (Windows XP, Mac OS X), most of the latest operating systems ave "built in" un-zipping software, so all you should have to do is double click on the "zip" file that you just downloaded and move the enclosed files to a new folder.

If your operating system does not have a built-in un-zip program, we recommend the following:
PC: WinZip
Mac: Stuffit

When un-zipping the package, be sure to keep the directory structure in-tact, although maintaining the directory structure is not 100% necessary, doing so will help keep things organized, both on your local PC and on your web site.


3. Create a new folder named "rave" on your website.

This folder will be referred to as the "Rave Installation Folder." It is not required that the new folder be named "rave" -- you can name the folder anything you want.

We highly recommend only using alpha-numeric characters for the folder name, try not to use punctuation characters such as: ? ' & % $ SPACE.

The only punctuation symbols that are acceptable are _ (underscore) and - (hyphen).

Installation is now complete.


The next step is to use Rave Customizer to configure the player. Click here for instructions on using the Rave Customizer.

Once you have used Rave Customizer to configure the player, you can upload your media files to the Rave installation folder.

You can organize your media files in sub folders within your Rave Installation Folder. Subfolders appear within the Rave playlist -- allowing folks to navigate through all the subfolders within the Rave installation folder.


NOTE: Notice that we did not use "R & B", instead, we only used acceptable punctuation and alpha-numeric characters.

NOTE: *.* means "all files" (e.g. any file, any extension).
