How do I install CRE Loaded Standard?

Please follow these steps:
  1. Dearchive the distribution.
  2. Prepare your webserver
    • Obtain an appropriate LAMP server and domain name (See software Requirements).
    • Assure that the domain names DNS entry is pointed to your new server or use a temporary domain name provided by your host.
    • Make sure you have FTP or SCP access to upload files to your webspace.
    • Decide on a root (recommended) or subdirectory based install.
    • Create the install subdirectory if needed.
    • Assure that you have working ID and Passwords for FTP and mySQL and know the hostname for your server (usually your own domain).
    • Select an Administration user id and password
      • The ID must be a valid email address containing no dots in the username
      • The password should be at least 8 characters and contain numeric or special characters
    • Upload to your webserver
      • Point the upload into either your webroot (for a root install) or:
      • the subdirectory you created above for a subdirectory based install.
      • Monitor the upload closely.
        • FTP may fail to upload all files. Re-upload as needed to get a full and complete copy.
    • Run the web based installer
      • Point your web browser to http:///install/ and run it. Follow the instructions
      • Use FTP, SCP, SSH or your hosts web based file manager to reset permissions until the preinstall file access check tool reports each item to be writeable.
      • If necessary, copy the included configure_dist.php file found in includes/ and admin/includes directories to includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php
      • Enter the selected Administration User ID and Password when prompted.
      • You will be prompted for server information twice. This is not a mistake. It will allow you to set the store up using a mySQL user with limited privileges for security purposes. Do not attempt this on a live store without carefully establishing what mySQL grants are required to run the script on your server.
    • Secure your new store
      • chmod 444 includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php
      • delete the install directory and all contents
