// Clean Install (SiteX 0.7.3 Beta)

1. Download the latest release zip from the SiteX website.
2. Unzip the files to your computer and upload them to your webserver.
3. Make sure that the "content/" directory and its subdirectories are writeable by Apache. Setting folder permissions to 757 or using shell to change the owner will accomplish this. Contact your web administrator if you are unsure how to do this.
4. Setup your MySQL database. (Note: SiteX requires a MySQL database be present in order to operate. A database is a function of your webhost, and SiteX is in no way responsible for this.)
5. Edit your database configuration in "includes/globals.php.inc".
6. Visit the site root of your SiteX site to be forwarded to the setup.
7. Follow the instructions and ENJOY!
