28 djmaze 1.6  
29 trevor 1.12 1) Create a new database, for example, 'dragonfly': mysqladmin create dragonfly
30 djmaze 1.6 OR add a database through your web control panel.
31 djmaze 1.6  
32 djmaze 1.6 2) Edit the file "config.php". Change all the fields until you are happy with
33 djmaze 1.6 the changes and they fit the need of your web site. Give special attention
34 djmaze 1.6 to the database configuration section. When you have finished editing
35 djmaze 1.6 config.php, save it.
36 djmaze 1.1  
37 djmaze 1.6 3) Now upload all content from the /html directory to your webspace.
38 djmaze 1.1  
39 trevor 1.8 4) CHMOD the following file to 600 (622 if 600 fails):
40 djmaze 1.6 - cpg_error.log

42 trevor 1.8 5) CHMOD the following directories to 755 (777 if 755 fails):

51 djmaze 1.1  
52 djmaze 1.6 After the database is created you will be prompted to insert additional
53 djmaze 1.6 information and, if it's a new install, to create the super user account.
54 djmaze 1.6 Create your super user following the on-screen instructions.
55 djmaze 1.1  
56 djmaze 1.6 7) Login following the admin link (http://mydomain.tld/admin.php)
57 djmaze 1.1  
58 djmaze 1.6 Now click on "Main Settings" and change whatever you want to fit your site
59 djmaze 1.6 info. All the options you need to change are in the Settings menu.
60 djmaze 1.1  
61 djmaze 1.6 8) After installing, delete install.php and the /install directory!
62 djmaze 1.1  
63 djmaze 1.1  
64 djmaze 1.1 Testing the Installation
65 djmaze 1.1 ------------------------
66 djmaze 1.1  
67 djmaze 1.1 Go to your homepage, for example:
68 djmaze 1.1  
69 trevor 1.8 http://mydomain.tld/index.php
70 djmaze 1.1  
71 trevor 1.2 To login as administrator:
72 djmaze 1.1  
73 trevor 1.8 http://mydomain.tld/admin.php
74 djmaze 1.1  
75 djmaze 1.6 This will give you full administrator privileges to your installation of
76 trevor 1.10 CPG Dragonfly CMS.
77 djmaze 1.1  
78 djmaze 1.6 Remember to logout from admin after you use it. From this area you can
79 djmaze 1.6 delete or add content on your site, so never leave your computer without
80 djmaze 1.6 logging out from the admin account.
81 djmaze 1.1  
82 djmaze 1.1 We recommend the use of MySQL-Front or phpMyAdmin. Those are good
83 djmaze 1.1 administration systems for MySQL databases.
84 trevor 1.10 www.dragonflycms.com/downloads/mysqlfront25.exe (free version)
85 djmaze 1.1 www.mysqlfront.de (30 days free)
86 djmaze 1.1 www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page
87 djmaze 1.1  
88 djmaze 1.1 We also recommend setting a password for your MySQL access. This is
89 djmaze 1.1 important as some data in the nuke database is not encrypted, so for
90 trevor 1.5 security reasons you need to set a password. Not only that, it's a
91 trevor 1.5 good practice!
