Install and upgrade instructions
Please have a look into the file /DOCU/ which is delivered with the downloaded package.

The unzip.php and the WB ZIP delete themselves after the successful execution of the unzip.php.

 +Alternative way: (slow & oldscool)

And according to the motto "WebsiteBaker goes OOP", we are already investing in the future and will increasingly rely on design patterns from version to version.

In addition, the code has been and will continue to be adapted to the new PHP 7 versions. So with this version of WebsiteBaker the support for PHP 5 will be discontinued as a consequence, because most hosters in their new packages offer the outdated PHP 5, if at all, then only for a fee. 

Have fun with WebsiteBaker 2.12.2
