Before I start the tutorial, you need to check for these requirements:


PHP4+ SSL cuRL extension FTP


FTP Client eg. SmartFTP( ) Text Editor eg. WordPad

If you already have all the required things, please proceed.

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5

Step 1:

Download the latest PGD from if you haven't. Then extract the downloaded zip into a folder. Now, open the config.php. You should see something like this:

Edit the $gmail_user[0] & $gmail_password[0] to your gmail username & password. To add more user, just copy & paste $gmail_user[0] & $gmail_password[0] into $gmail_user[n] & $gmail_password[n], where n is the number after the previous. If you add user, you also need to change $maxAccount to the number of account you have.

Note: The counting must start with a zero

You may also want to change the $sitename var to your desired title that appears on top of a web browser.
