Installation Questions


What facilities do I need on my web host to use CBRocket?

Here is what you need:
  • PHP version 4.3 or later (PHP 5 compatible)

  • MySQL database

  • If you want the script to be able to automatically download marketplace data from ClickBank, with a click of the mouse.

    • Your webhost must have configured PHP so it can retrieve data from external websites using any one of these methods: fopen, file_get_contents, or CURL. Most hosting companies do allow this - but you should ask your webhosting company, if unsure.

    • If your hosting company does not allow this, you can still use CBRocket but you will have to manually transfer a copy of the ClickBank marketplace ZIP file to your webhost (for example by uploading the file to your web host using an FTP program).

One Important Proviso About CBRocket

As previously mentioned, CBRocket retrieves product listings automatically from the ClickBank marketplace (and XML data from MarketingRocket). Consequently, CBRocket does depend on the design of ClickBank (amd MarketingRocket's) datafeeds.

Unlike some of our competitors, we obtain this data only use the documented and supported features provided within ClickBank's official datafeed. Moreover we have designed CBRocket so it can automatically accommodate small changes to ClickBank's feed, should they decide to make changes in future.

However, if ClickBank were to radically redesign their datafeed (or withdraw this service completely), CBRocket might no longer be able to retrieve data from ClickBank. If this were to occur, you would no longer be able to retrieve updated product information from ClickBank (however your site would be able to continue to operate with the data already retrieved).

How hard is it to install CBRocket?

It should be easy. Here are the steps:
  1. After you purchase you will be given access to a ZIP file containing your personal copy of code. Download this file and unpack it using WINZIP.
  2. You need to get the MySQL connection parameters (4 text parameters: your MySQL user name, password, database name and host name) from your web host. Modify the configuration file to contain these 4 parameters. You also need to enter your URL and ClickBank nickname in this same configuration file.
  3. Upload CBRocket to your web site, and run the administration script. Click the option to set up the MySQL database tables, the click the option to download the data from ClickBank and MarketingRocket.
  4. You can now use CBRocket on any of your pages. There are many methods of integration depending on exactly how you want to use it, but in most cases you simply add between 1 and about 5 lines of code to those pages you want to integrate with.
Much more detailed instructions are included in the package.
