The Diva distribution is a binary distribution. As such, it is very
simple to install. If you come across web pages with instructions for
installing OpenSim, please keep this in mind — this distribution does
not need anything related to getting and compiling source code
(e.g. git, nant, etc).

Follow these 5 (6 in *ix) steps for installation of this OpenSim distribution.

STEP 0
0) Install Mono 2.10.8.1 or higher. See

OpenSim.

STEP 1
1) Install MySQL and, optionally, MySQLAdmin. See
MySql
for important instructions on how to setup MySQL for
this distribution.

STEP 2
2) Set up your network properly and create a domain name for the machine
where this OpenSim world runs. See

for important instructions on how to set up your network.

STEP 3
