2) Copy config/database.example.yml to config/database.yml and fill in the appropriate details
3) Create your database ("rake db:create") and load the schema ("rake db:schema:load")
4) Start the web server ("script/server") and visit your new site to create the first user account

== Upgrading

Note: Always back up your database and application files before performing an upgrade.
