    Can anyone explain this a bit more? I’m completely new to all of this, I’ve done some mild web creations in dreamweaver, but nothing major. Also did a year of Joomla, having trouble here:

    define ( ‘URL_SCRIPT’, ‘http://dev.chevereto.com/’) // run the script URL (url to be the root of the hosting)
    define ( ‘DOM_SCRIPT’, ‘dev.chevereto.com’), / / domain or subdomain of the script (note, that affects whether or not to go with “www.”
    define ( ‘PATH_SCRIPT’, ‘/ chevereto /’) / / Relative path from web carpera to the script (eg: / public_html / chevereto /) ‘/’ if you run in the root web.
    define ( ‘PATH_SERVER’, ‘/ public_html /’. PATH_SCRIPT) / / The path to the server where your script, take note that PATH_SCRIPT. In this case is: / public_html / chevereto /
    define ( ‘APP_NAME’, ‘DEV Chevereto’) / / What is your hosting

    It’s a pity, there is no login option (user management in generally). Maybe I only didn’t see it on demo…
