Administrator Account

This user account will become the site administrator and have complete access to the system. Additional user accounts can be created after installation.

Locale Settings

For complete Unicode (UTF-8) support, select UTF-8 for all character set settings. Note that this support currently requires a MySQL >= 4.1.1 or PostgreSQL >= 9.1.5 database server. Please also note that full Unicode support requires the mbstring library (enabled by default in most recent PHP installations). You may experience problems using extended character sets if your server does not meet these requirements.

File Settings

Your server currently allows file uploads: Yes

Your server currently allows a maximum file upload size of: 128M
