1. Requirements
- Apache with mod-rewrite enabled and "Options All" so you can use a
local .htaccess file
- PHP > 5.1. The later the better. You'll need 5.3 for full openssl
encryption support
- PHP *command line* access with register_argc_argv set to true in the
php.ini file

- Mysql 5.x
- cron
[Dreamhost.com offers all of the necessary hosting features at a
reasonable price. If your hosting provider doesn't allow Unix shell access,
you might have trouble getting everything to work.]

5. Put this directory into the root of your web server document area.
- To use a subdir of your main site, set the
config variable $a->path to the relative subdir
in .htconfig.php - for example to use http://example.com/test -

set $a->path to 'test'.
- Everything will work much better if you can dedicate a domain
or subdomain so that you don't require an extra server path.
