  4. The first step in the installation is to choose the type of installation. You will be given two options:

    1. You can install in a newly created user account, where the user account will be automatically created with root privileges

    2. You can install in the current user account without root privileges.

    Choose option 1, if you want to have root privileges so that it can be configured to backup all the users data, MySQL, System Files etc. Note that will be installed as a daemon process and will automatically start when the system boots up. You can START and STOP by running the command "/etc/rc.d/ start/stop".

  5. If you chose option 1 in the above step, then you will either be asked to give the root password, or the installation will quit and ask you to login as root and start the installation process again. Once you give the root password, you will be asked to provide a password for the user account which will be created.
