Overview

This is a guide to how eXtropia applications are installed, configured, and customized including issues related to web application security.

Since all the eXtropia applications follow a similar architecture, we thought it would be best to make a general guide and then reference that guide from all the application-specific guides (eg Guide to WebGuestBook) so that when you become familiar with the ``eXtropia Way'' of installing applications, you don't have to keep reading the same documentation over and over and over again.

Acknowledgements, Incentives, and Credits

eXtropia applications are open source applications ( http://www.extropia.com/open_source_case_study.html). As such, the applications we've written are not just the result of a single group of people at eXtropia -- rather we rely on the entire open source community for feedback on both the code and the documentation.

The Further References chapter at the end of this guide acknowledges some of the people who have helped make this guide and the software that it describes possible. Right off the bat, we simply have to acknowledge Stas Bekman's Documentation Creation generator for creating the HTML and PDF version of this documentation from a simple set of POD files!

How To Read This Guide

There's a lot to this guide. It's over 100 pages long in its PDF form. As such, we don't necessarily expect you to wade through the entire thing.

Basically, we wrote the guide in the most verbose manner possible so that all the information you need could be provided in one place. However, with that in mind, here are the various ways we would expect you to read this documentation based on your profile. Note that you may actually fall into more than one profile, so we'll leave it up to your best judgement.
