IP-Cams Single Version is a native component for Joomla 1.5. It must be installed with the original installation function of Joomla! in the backend.
The component creates classic component files and folders and also copies the main component public file (ipcamview.php) plus two font files (Abduction.ttf e tahoma.ttf) in the site root (ex.: www.mysite.com/ipcamview.php). The main file is the file that will be called by internal or external links to take the IPcam snapshot as you can see here.
During installation, if the site root is not writable o if for any reason these files cannot be copied, the component will be however installed but it will show an error with which Joomla! administrator will know which files must be copied manually in the site root.
