Facebook Auto Reply quick installation guide

1. System requirements

Facebook Auto Reply is a web based application and it requires a web browser(Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc) to operate.
It is compatible with all existing browsers and operating systems.

System requirements:
- Your own website(Windows or Linux hosting) with the ability to create a cronjob. We DO NOT recommend free hosting plans.
- 1 available Mysql database

On demand, we can install and configure the script on your domain for only 20$
Please contact us if you are interested in this service.

If you do not have your own website/server you can still use the script using our hosted version.
This means we will have to install a fresh copy of the script on our server and give you the login info.
The hosted version is 20$/year and the fee includes the first installation, script configuration and 1 year hosting.
Also, your license will be available if you will decide later to move the script on your website.
Please contact us if you are interested in this service.
