Sockso's Optional Components
Sockso provides support for some of it's features in an optional extra download.
This is meant to ensure that the default Sockso download remains small, but this
won't restrict adding more ambitious features that require extra libraries, etc...
The optionals download allows features like...
- MySQL Support
- SQLite Support (experimental)
- UPNP Router Configuration
When you have downloaded the optionals zip file, you'll just need to unpack it
and copy the files to a new folder inside your Sockso folder called lib/opt.
(You'll see there's already a folder there called lib for the main stuff)
That's it, you should be ready to try out the new features now.
If you love using Sockso and would like to give a little back,
try a donation to help out and support open source development.
