The following three steps are all that is needed to install Deepwater. In the first step, Deepwater will test for needed dependencies to operate correctly. Check the troubleshooting section below or contact your hosting provider if a dependency fails.
Note: Less common, self managed servers will need mod_rewrite and mod_headers modules installed. In addition, php files should be run as the cpanel user and not the default nobody user.
Ensure that the requirements pass on step 1 of the installation process.
The second step is for the database configuration. Input the database username, password, and database name. The additional options can be left at the default settings or changed as needed.
The final step is to create an admin account. Input a name, email address, and passphrase. By default, the admin account will be given full privileges in Deepwater.
For improved security, check that the permissions of the install.php file were successfully changed to 0200 after the installation.
