Information regarding the installation of bitweaver
File permissionsCertain files or directories need permissions which allow the web server to alter them. On a Unix-like system, the simple solution is to grant write permission to all on the system (chmod 777). But it is safer for an administrator to change the group ownership and permissions so the specific web server user has access.
System RequirementsWhen a newly uploaded bitweaver site is entered, permissions for certain files are checked and problems are reported. Once these have been resolved, you can then go on to the bitweaver installation. System requirements and recommendations are checked by the Installer. For details, see Bitweaver Requirements.
Database InstallationMake sure you have a database correctly compiled into your PHP version, since the installer will only display ones that are available. For details, see Bitweaver Database.
Administrator DefinitionThe administrator account is used to maintain all aspects of bitweaver. There are absolutely no restrictions for this user.
Package InstallationPackages that are placed within the Bitweaver directory on your server appear in a list of packages you can install. Every one of these is optional (appart from some few required packages) and can be selected or deselected. Packages can always be disabled later or deleted from your server.
Data PumpWhen packages have been installed successfully, the installer can insert sample data. This helps you to evaluate Bitweaver. Also, the added wiki pages are a set of tutorial pages containing useful information.
Bitweaver SettingsThe last step of the install process lets you set a few settings specific to your Bitweaver install.
Installation IssuesIf you run into any issues during the installation process, please check the list of Frequently Asked Questions or Bitweaver's chat (#bitweaver on freenode.net). We will help you sort out any problems you might have.
