Building on the work of GP Boarder (thanks for all your work), I did work over last few days on "XOOPS 2.4 Installation Guide"

I've uploaded the first Draft to:

https://xoops.org/uploads/documentatio ... ationGuide2.4.0Draft1.pdf

The Appendixes still need work, but the main part I getting closer to completion.

Please review and please HELP us to finish the document in the next week or so, so we can publish it for people to use.

Please think about any common problems that the users have with XOOPS 2.3.3 and with 2.4.0 betas, so we could address it here.

Please help us with it making this documentation easy to use and understand.

I'm glad that you like it!

But we need a critical eye for this to be really good:

What can we improve there?
What should we change?
What is not clear?
What did we miss?
What should we add?

Perhaps there should be a notice by fig. 16 that it could be skipped during installation and looked into later.

Overall I think the documentation is good and better than e.g. Joomla's. However, I do have some comments and questions:

Page 2: Says we have over 60 themes. Don't we mean 600?

Page 3: Error in the table for Figure 11.

Page 10: While we discuss making directories writable, why don't we add that root/cache also needs to be writable for FCKEditor to work?

Page 30: Here we talk about moving the directories outside of the root and then updating the mainfile. Isn't it better to move the directories before the installation? That way you won't have to update the mainfile.

Page 50: Typo. Says "XOOPS Insallation".
