HoloCMS 2.0 is finally released and there were many people who didn't understand it and/or had errors. So i'm going to help.

1. First you'll need some programs, only download this stuff first.

- HoloCMS 2.1.1 - rapidshare.comrapidshare.com/files/12758136...TABLE.rar.html
- WinRAR - http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar371.exe
- MySQL ODBC Driver 5.1 (for the MySQL database) - http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/C....webazilla.nl/
- XAMPP (for the site and MySQL) - http://www.apachefriends.org/downloa...-installer.exe
- Microsoft Visual C# Express Edition (for using the server) - Downloads - Scroll Down, go to C#, select your language and download.
- ADO.NET Entity Framework Beta 3 Patch (also for using the server) - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en - Scroll down. There are 2 versions, the X86 version is for computers with a x86 processor and the X64 version is for computers with a x64 processor.

You can see below in this topic how to install this stuff.
If you are going to install HoloCMS with a clean database etc. follow a, or if you're gonna upgrade follow b

If there's no a or b written, then it mostly is a.

2. Install TortoiseSVN first and restart your computer.
3. Create a folder on your desktop called ''Holograph Emulator'' or something.
4. Right click on that map and click on SVN Checkout.
5. Fill in the first field: Revision 48: /. Like in the picture:



6. Click on OK, you don't have to change the settings.
7. Wait untill it's finished.
8. Ok now you have Holograph Emulator, you can check anytime if there's an update for it by right-clicking on the map and choosing SVN Update.
9. Install the MySQL ODBC Driver.
10. Install XAMPP, don't install one of the three services while you're installing XAMPP.
11. Open XAMPP Control Panel and start Apache and MySQL.



12. Install Visual C# Express Edition, make sure it also installs .NET Framework 3.5 if you don't have it.
13. Install the ADO.NET Entity Framework Beta 3 Patch.
14. Go to cPanel® and select your language, make sure Apache and MySQL are running with XAMPP Control Panel all the time if you use your website/hotel.
15. Now go to http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php.
16. Setup a password and don't change the settings again, just click on ''Change password'' or something.
17. Go to C:\xampp\htdocs\ and throw everything in that folder away.

18. Install WinRAR.
19. Open HoloCMS_2.1.1_STABLE.rar
20. Click on the second big button in WinRAR from the left to unpack it.

21a. Copy everything in the .rar file to C:\xampp\htdocs\

$sqldb = "holodb";

Scroll a little bit down... and change:

$path = "YOUR IP, 127.0.0.1 (FOR YOURSELF) OR YOUR HAMACHI IP WHATEVER";

Save.

24. Now we must create a database, which we can create on the homepage of PHPMyAdmin.



25. Ok, fill in ''holodb'' (without quotes) and click on that button on the right as in the screen (i'm dutch:P).
26. Now you've created a database, click on it on the left-side in PHPMyAdmin.

52. Then we'll see the dcr's. You must use V23 dcr's. You can use the dcr's directly from habbo or your own dcr's which you can download above in this topic here at Optional.
You need your own dcr's to have working group badges in your Hotel. Below in this topic you can read how to install your own dcr's. So if you've already got your own dcr's + externals:

Quote:
1. Open texts.txt.
2. Search this line:

Code:
group_logo_url_template=http://nipper.servegame.com/habbo-imaging/badge/%imagerdata%.gif
3. Change it to:

Code:
group_logo_url_template=http://YOURIP, 127.0.0.1 OR HAMACHI IP/habbo-imaging/badge-fill/%imagerdata%.gif

If you don't know how to use own dcr's, look below this topic how to do that. If you still don't understand it or you're too lazy, fill in:

External Texts field: http://www.habbohotel.co.uk/gamedata...external_texts

External Variables field: http://www.habbohotel.co.uk/gamedata...rnal_variables

Habbo DCR field: http://images.habbohotel.co.uk/dcr/r...4c5b/habbo.dcr

You'll don't have working group badges in your Hotel if you don't use your own dcr's.
53. Set Server is on Localhost to Yes, or the Hotel wouldn't work.
54. Click on Save Configuration.

55. Now let's start the server! You are almost done.
56. Go to Holograph Emulator and open Holograph Emulator.csproj NOT Holograph Emulator.sln or Holograph Emulator.suo thank you Smile.
57. Click on the green arrow or press F5.
58. The server is started and now you can go to cPanel® and you can enter your Hotel, ENJOY!
