Creating a website like kickstarter will allow you to make it possible for others to raise money for their project both personal and business. It's a great way to give back.

Keep in mind that Kickstarter have full time developers, designers, and programmers that are always working to customize and make it better. While this provides a great way for you to get started, there's also room for you to customize your site as well.

In order to extract the template, you need an archiver that will extract the files for you. The one I used and recommend is called b1. You can go to their website at and download it.

An FTP (File Transfer Protocol) makes it very easy to upload and download files from the net to your computer and vise versa. You can get a free FTP client called File Zilla. Download it here.

Uploading all the template files via FTP

Creating a database that will be used to complete the installation

Make sure that you put the correct database and user information so that you don't get any errors. Here's the code to use php 5.3:

# Use PHP 5.3
AddType application/x-httpd-php53 .php

Once you get that message after installing the template, follow the video to put the code. If done correctly, the message will disappear and you should be able to complete your installation.
