The Installation of MailBeez is successfully tested with DigiStore 4.1, running on PHP 5.2.11

If MailBeez is not included in your DigiStore 4.1+ release please follow these instructions

The installation is straight forward and can be done in a couple of minutes by following these two steps:

  • copy new files
  • modify existing files

Step 1 – copy new files

The “Quickstart Packag” Zip-File contains several folders. The Folder “catalog” contains the files and folders you need to copy into your Shop Root.

Copy following file and folder to your Shop Root (where your index.php is located)

catalog/admin/mailbeez.php -> admin/mailbeez.php
catalog/mailhive -> mailhive (folder)
catalog/mailhive.php -> mailhive.php

Step 2 – modify existing files

1. Add a menu entry

located and open the file

admin/includes/boxes/email.php

find

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONFIGURATION, 'gID=12', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_CONFIGURATION_EMAIL_OPTIONS . '</a>');

replace with

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONFIGURATION, 'gID=12', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_CONFIGURATION_EMAIL_OPTIONS . '</a>'.
'<a href="' . tep_href_link('mailbeez.php', '', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">Mail Beez</a>');

this will add the menu-entry “MailBeez” to your Email-Menu item.

Feel free to place this link whereever you want.

please continue with Basic Configuration

Optional

If you would like to have access to MailBeez core files & tables from other pages you need to add the following global DataBase and Filename definitions:

Add the Database table definition

located and open the file

admin/includes/database_tables.php

add e.g. at the end

define('TABLE_MAILBEEZ_TRACKING', 'mailbeez_tracking');
define('TABLE_MAILBEEZ_BLOCK', 'mailbeez_block');

do the same for your catalog:

includes/database_tables.php

add

define('TABLE_MAILBEEZ_TRACKING', 'mailbeez_tracking');
define('TABLE_MAILBEEZ_BLOCK', 'mailbeez_block');

Add the filename definition

located and open the file

admin/includes/filenames.php

add e.g. at the end

define('FILENAME_MAILBEEZ', 'mailbeez.php');
define('FILENAME_HIVE', 'mailhive.php');

do almost the same for your catalog:

includes/filenames.php

add

define('FILENAME_HIVE', 'mailhive.php');
