    1119Unpack the distribution (using for example 'tar' or 'WinZip'), and set
     
    2028The very first of these commands asks a number of questions regarding
    2129the installation.
     30
     31
     32"Skip OpenGuides configuration?"
     33
     34Answer "n" to this question unless you really know what you're doing.
     35It's mainly there for developers.
     36
     37"what type of database do you want the site to run on?  postgres/mysql"
     38
     39Answer either "postgres" or "mysql".
    2240
    2341"What do you want the script to be called?"
     
    5573optionally install a simple stylesheet with the OpenGuides distribution.
    5674
    57 "What's the name of the postgres database that this site runs on?"
     75"What's the name of the database that this site runs on?"
    5876"And the database user that can access that database?"
    5977"And the password that they use to access the database?"
    6078
    61 You should create (or ask your ISP/sysadmin to create) a Postgres
    62 database specifically for the use of OpenGuides.  If you have more
    63 than one OpenGuides installation, for example if you run guides for
    64 more than one city, each installation will need its own database.
     79You should create (or ask your ISP/sysadmin to create) a Postgres or
     80MySQL database specifically for the use of OpenGuides.  If you have
     81more than one OpenGuides installation, for example if you run guides
     82for more than one city, each installation will need its own database.

    66 TODO - support MySQL and SQLite as well (this is really going to be
    67 pretty trivial).
     84TODO - support SQLite as well (requires faffing with install scripts,
     85bit messy but CGI::Wiki already supports this so won't be hard)
    6886
    6987"What's the wiki called?"
