#################################################################

1) install the package
you surely did this already :)


2) install required additional software
clearsilver perl bindings:
	* download clearsilver (http://clearsilver.net) v0.10.2 or higher
	* compile and install it with perl enabled


3) create user-specific suid binaries
As perl-suid is considered deprecated, you have to compile a C-wrapper
for every user of your debian system, who wants to manage his mailing
lists with ezmlm-we.
Usually you do this only for your virtual mailing list user.

to create a wrapper, type the following:
	ezmlm-web-make-suid USERNAME DESTINATION_FILE

e.g: ezmlm-web-make-suid john ~john/public_html/cgi-bin/ezmlm-web


4) create a user-specific configuration file (optional)
Copy /usr/share/doc/ezmlm-web/examples/ezmlmwebrc to ~john/.ezmlmwebrc
and change its content according to your setup.


5) access control (optional)
configure access control for the fresh cgi binary. Maybe you can
use the htaccess.sample file in /usr/share/doc/ezmlm-web/examples as
a template.

Now you should create a webusers file to define the permissions of all
possible web users. An example webusers file can be found at
/usr/share/doc/ezmlm-web/examples/webusers.sample.

See /usr/share/doc/ezmlm-web/README for details about access control.


6) testing
Now you can access the ezmlm-web interface by using your web browser.
e.g. point it to http://localhost/~john/cgi-bin/ezmlm-web
