README $Id$
------
+Here is a basic outline of the installation process,
+which normally takes me only a few minutes:
-All the documention is in the "doc" subdirectory. :-)
+1) Move the Moodle files into your web directory.
+
+2) Create an empty directory somewhere to store
+ uploaded files (NOT accessible via the web).
+ This directory must be writeable by the web server
+ process.
+
+3) Create a single database for Moodle to store all
+ it's tables in.
+
+4) Copy the file config-dist.php to config.php, and
+ edit it with all your own settings.
+
+5) Visit your new home page with a web browser. Moodle
+ will lead you through the rest of the setup,
+ creating an admin account and so on.
+
+6) Set up a cron task to call the file admin/cron.php
+ every five minutes or so.
+
+For more details, I highly recommend you read the
+full installation documentation, which is stored
+in the "doc" directory or found at http://moodle.com/doc/.
+
+Cheers!
