		<p>Plogger is designed to run in a <abbr title="Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP">LAMP</abbr> server environment, and has the following minimum requirements to function properly:</p>

				<li class="margin-5">PHP version <strong>4</strong> or higher.</li>
				<li class="margin-5">MySQL version <strong>3.23</strong> or higher.</li>
				<li class="margin-5">GD library version <strong>2</strong> or later.</li>


		<p>Due to an infinite number of web server configurations, we cannot guarantee that Plogger will work perfectly on your setup.</p>

		<p>If you run into any issues during installation, please post them in our <a title="support forum" href="http://www.plogger.org/forum/">support forum</a> and we'll do our best to help you get them resolved. Post as much detail as possible, including any error messages you receive.</p>

		<p>Follow these steps to get started.</p>

				<li class="margin-5">Unzip the files to a local folder on your computer.</li>
				<li class="margin-5">Upload the files via FTP to a folder on your website.</li>
				<li class="margin-5">Create a MySQL database and user from your web hosting control panel.</li>
				<li class="margin-5">Open your web browser and run the installation script located at:<br />
					<span style="color: #c00;">http://www.yoursite.com/plogger-folder/plog-admin/_install.php</span></li>
				<li class="margin-5">Log in to your gallery admin and begin configuring your gallery and uploading your images.</li>

		<p>That's all there is to it!</p>

	<h1>Before You Upgrade</h1>

		<p>Before you upgrade your existing Plogger gallery to version 1.0-RC1, be sure you make a backup of all of your existing files via FTP and your MySQL database via phpMyAdmin, and save them in a folder on your computer.</p>

		<p>If you have custom themes, translations, or third-party script files, make sure you back those up as well.</p>

	<h1>Upgrading from any previous version of Plogger to 1.0-RC1:</h1>

			<li class="margin-5">Make a backup of all of your files via FTP and your database from your web hosting control panel and save them to your computer.</li>
			<li class="margin-5">Upload and overwrite ALL FILES <strong>except for plog-config.php</strong>.</li>
				<li class="margin-5">Your old plog-config.php file should continue to work, but there are new options available. See plog-config-sample.php for an example.</li>
				<li class="margin-5">If previously using Cruft-Free URLs, do not overwrite the .htaccess file. If you do, just login to Admin -> Options and save the options to recreate the .htaccess file.</li>
				<li class="margin-5">If you have modified one of the 3 themes included in the download, either rename the modified theme folder or do not upload the new theme folder.</li>
			<li class="margin-5">Open your web browser and run the upgrade script located at:<br /><span style="color: #c00;">http://www.yoursite.com/plogger-folder/plog-admin/_upgrade.php</span></li>
			<li class="margin-5">The upgrade process is automated, and consists of 5 steps. Follow the instructions for each step, and fix any problems listed before proceeding to the next step.</li>
