This is a forked repository. Have a look at
halorgium’s mephisto wiki
for older information.

The following instructions should help you install Edge Mephisto. But first, some recommendations:

  1. Please do not deploy Edge Mephisto straight to a production server—use a testing server first!
  2. Before deploying Mephisto, please make a backup of your existing database and Mephisto directory.

Here’s how to get started:

git clone git:// 
cd mephisto
sudo gem install -v 2.2.2 rails
rake config/initializers/session_store.rb
cp config/database.example.yml config/database.yml
# Edit config/database.yml for your site.
# If you don't have a database for your site yet, you may need to run:
#   rake db:create
# First time users will then need to run:
#   rake db:bootstrap
# If you're upgrading, please let me know what steps
# are required. Please make a backup first!
sudo rake gems:install

If you have any problems, please don’t hesitate to update the wiki.
