31 djmaze 1.6  
32 trevor 1.12 1) Create a new database, for example, 'dragonfly': mysqladmin create dragonfly
33 djmaze 1.6 OR add a database through your web control panel.

36 djmaze 1.1  
37 nanocaio 1.17 3) CHMOD the following file to 600 (622 if 600 fails):

53 djmaze 1.1  
54 nanocaio 1.17 6) Login following the admin link (http://example.com/admin.php)
55 djmaze 1.1  
56 djmaze 1.6 Now click on "Main Settings" and change whatever you want to fit your site
57 djmaze 1.6 info. All the options you need to change are in the Settings menu.
58 djmaze 1.1  
59 nanocaio 1.17 7) After installing, delete install.php and the /install directory!
60 djmaze 1.1  
61 djmaze 1.1  
62 djmaze 1.1 Testing the Installation
63 djmaze 1.1 ------------------------
64 djmaze 1.1  
65 djmaze 1.1 Go to your homepage, for example:
66 djmaze 1.1  
67 nanocaio 1.16 http://example.com/index.php
68 djmaze 1.1  
69 trevor 1.2 To login as administrator:
70 djmaze 1.1  
71 nanocaio 1.16 http://example.com/admin.php
72 djmaze 1.1  
73 djmaze 1.6 This will give you full administrator privileges to your installation of
74 trevor 1.10 CPG Dragonfly CMS.
75 djmaze 1.1  
76 djmaze 1.6 Remember to logout from admin after you use it. From this area you can
77 djmaze 1.6 delete or add content on your site, so never leave your computer without
78 djmaze 1.6 logging out from the admin account.
79 djmaze 1.1  
80 djmaze 1.1 We recommend the use of MySQL-Front or phpMyAdmin. Those are good
81 djmaze 1.1 administration systems for MySQL databases.
82 djmaze 1.15 dragonflycms.org/downloads/mysqlfront25.exe (free version)
83 djmaze 1.1 www.mysqlfront.de (30 days free)
84 djmaze 1.1 www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page
85 djmaze 1.1  
86 djmaze 1.1 We also recommend setting a password for your MySQL access. This is
87 djmaze 1.1 important as some data in the nuke database is not encrypted, so for
88 trevor 1.5 security reasons you need to set a password. Not only that, it's a
89 trevor 1.5 good practice!
