"Executing Koha's web installer

"In this section of the article, we will learn how to execute Koha's web installer. The web installer performs several important functions such as creating Koha's database structure or populating mandatory administrative settings. It can also populate optional settings and sample data such as MARC frameworks or patron categories. The installer is launched from the staff client interface using Koha's MySQL user and is a series of interactive steps. At the end of the process we will be able to launch Koha's staff interface and its OPAC.

"Understanding the web installer's functions

"Koha's web installer performs the following functions:

* Checks for the existence of Koha's database, the connectivity to the database, and if the database user has the required privilege on the Koha database.
* Creates Koha's database structure—its tables, relationships between tables, database constraints, and other rules.
* Accepts user input on important configuration questions such as Language or MARC flavor."
