CodeIgniter is installed in four steps:
- Unzip the package.
- Upload the CodeIgniter folders and files to your server. Normally the index.php file will be at your root.
- Open the application/config/config.php file with a text editor and set your base URL.
- If you intend to use a database, open the application/config/database.php file with a text editor and set your database settings.
If you wish to increase security by hiding the location of your CodeIgniter files you can rename the system folder to something more private. If you do rename it, you must open your main index.php file and set the $system_folder variable at the top of the page with the new name you've chosen.
If you're new to CodeIgniter, please read the Getting Started section of the User Guide to begin learning how to build dynamic PHP applications. Enjoy!
