How to install Django
=====================
+This document will get you up and running with Django.
+
+Install Apache and mod_python
+=============================
+
+Currently, Django runs on Apache_ with `mod_python`_, although we're planning
+full WSGI support, which means Django will run on a variety of server
+platforms.
+
+Make sure you have Apache installed, with the mod_python module activated.
+
+.. _Apache: http://httpd.apache.org/
+.. _mod_python: http://www.modpython.org/
+
+Get your database running
+=========================
+
+If you plan to use Django's database API functionality, you'll need to
+make sure a database server is running. Django works with PostgreSQL_
+(recommended) or MySQL_.
+
+.. _PostgreSQL: http://www.postgresql.org/
+.. _MySQL: http://www.mysql.com/
+
+Install the Django code

using the latest official version or the latest development version.
It's easy either way.
