After the database has been setup, you will be presented with a form for filling out a list of other installation parameters. Most of them are self explanatory, but some deserve some explanation.

Note

At the top of this page, you may be asked to write-protect sites/default and sites/default/settings.php. You can either do this before proceeding or afterwards in the post-installation step. If you write-protect sites/default, please be careful not to accidentally write-protect sites/default/files in the process.
Site name
The name of your website.
Site e-mail address
Self-explanatory.
Username, E-mail address, Password, Confirm password
These are account settings for the first ProsePoint account (which is also the administrator account and usually called admin).
Default time zone
Self-explanatory.
Clean URLs
If your web server supports clean URLs, you will be given the option to enable clean URLs for your website.
Update notifications
Self-explanatory.
File system path
This is where ProsePoint will store uploaded files. The default value should be sufficient. If you change this to point to another directory, please make sure the directory exists and is writable by the web server before proceeding.
Temporary directory
This is where ProsePoint will store temporary uploaded files. The default value should be sufficient. If you change this to point to another directory, please make sure the directory exists and is writable by the web server before proceeding.

Warning

Both File system path and Temporary directory must refer to directories on your computer server which exist and are writable by your web server.
