You have to create a folder nameed "tmp" in your small business domain using the filemanager or hostmanager tools (or whatever they are called) at your domain at Yahoo. This is the same as making a new folder on your computer.  Set it's permission (chmode) to 777 (this allows read and write permission to the folder)

Download Coppermine 1.3.5, unzip it.  Go to the Cpg135/include directory and with notepad open the file.   Add    ini_set("memory_limit", "64M");   right after:    <?php  at the very top of the file.  Save the file.

Rename your coppermine folder to whatever name you want it to be. "photos" "gallery" etc.
Upload it to your website into the tmp folder.  CHMOD all the folders in the coppermine upload to 777.

Run http://Http://  and where it says "localhost" change that to "mysql"

Once you have installed coppermine successfully, go to the CONFIG panel in your coppermine install, you will see a button.   And set the Max size for uploaded files and Max width or height for upload pictures/videos to an appropriate value.  If you are using this for photos only, you will probably want to set this to 1200 or less.

We don't know, you'll have to figure this out, asking your webhost. We can't even guess. This doesn't belong to a sticky thread though, and you shouldn't post here if you have issues installing cpg1.4.x, as this thread was meant for cpg1.3.x. Locking it now.
