Server type

All server dependent instructions are for the Apache web server running on Unix/Linux operating systems. The scripts will run on other systems such as IIS on Microsoft Windows but some adjustments will probably be necessary. If you are installing on such a server and have problems, contact me and I will work with you to get it running.


Web root (aka HTML root) directory refers to the base directory for your website HTML pages. On Unix/Linux systems it’s name is usually one of “public_html” or “www” or “htdocs”. The path usually looks something like: /home/username/public_html.

TalkBack directory refers to the subdirectory under your web root directory in which TalkBack is installed. It’s path (assuming you don’t rename it) would be /home/username/public_html/talkback.
