Installing the Server Software 
1. Make a copy of your current UNIX installation first, to ensure you have a backup. 
Rename your current Palace directory, and install the new server into a directory 
with your old Palace directory name. Do *not* start the UNIX Palace server yet.
2. Move the new UNIX Palace server s 
pserver.prefs 
and 
pserver.pat
 files out of 
the new Palace server s 
installdirectory/palace/psdata
 directory. Copy your 
old 
pserver.dat
 and
 pserver.prp
 files to that location (
installdirectory/
palace/psdata
 directory.).
3. Review your
 pserver.conf
 file for accuracy if you don t use some of the default 
settings. Replacing the new 
pserver.conf
 file with your old one is not 
recommended since some upgrades do add new fields that would not be in your 
old 
pserver.conf.
4. Copy your old media into 
installdirectory/palace/media
.
5. Copy any Java avatars you customized from your old avatars directory to 
installdirectory/palace/avatars
.
6. Start your new Palace server. Your new 
pserver.prefs 
and 
pserver.pat 
files are 
created automatically from your current settings.

To install the UNIX server software
After you download your files to install, do the following:
1. Uncompress the Palace Source Files. The Palace files are distributed in 
tar.gz 
format. The first step therefore is to uncompress the tar image file by running 
gunzip
:
% gunzip filename
NOTE   
filename
 differs from platform to platform. The general format of 
 
is: 
server version cpu vendor OS.tar.gz. 
For example, 
pserver 4.4.1 iAPX32 linux.tar.gz
Gzip/gunzip
 is the standard compression software used for distributing UNIX 
software on the Internet. If you don t already have it, you can download source 
code from 
ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/ 
or any of the GNU mirror sites. 
Precompiled versions are available from a number of places, including: 
URL:ftp:/
/ftp.netscape.com/pub/unsupported/gnu/
.
2. Extract the Palace Files. The preceding step produces a single tar file roughly three 
megabytes in size. To extract the Palace files from this file, use the 
tar  xf 
command. For example:
% tar  xf pserver 4.4.1 iAPX32 linux.tar
3. Run the Installation Script. The files obtained from the previous step will include 
a script called 
install
. This script, which varies slightly from UNIX to UNIX, 
installs the Palace binaries, scripts and multimedia assets on your computer:
% ./install
