In Directory - If you wish to install Bolt in a subdirectory, you can specify it's name here. If you wish to install the application directly on your domain, leave this field blank.
Data Directory - This script requires to store its data in a folder not accessible via the web. It will be created in your home folder. i.e. if you specify datadir the following will be created - /home/username/datadir


The second section is called Admin Account. You can set up the administrative user for your new website. Keep this information safe as you will need it later. The details you need to enter are:

Admin Username - Enter a username for the administrative user on your new website.
Admin Password - Enter a password for the admin user.
Real Name - Enter the real name of the administrator.
Admin Email - Enter the email address of your administrator.

When you are ready with the configuration options for your new Bolt website, simply click on the Install button at the bottom of the page and the system will do the rest for you.

The installation will take few seconds for completion.


Once ready, it will provide you with a message saying that the installation was completed along with the administrative URL that you must use in order to enter Bolt’s backend.
