What do I need to run Ariadne, where do I get it?
First get Ariadne. You can download it from this website. Install it using the installation instructions that come with it. Then go to the tutorials section on this website and follow these tutorials step by step.
Ariadne runs on Windows (NT, 2000) with either IIS or Apache, or any Unix with Apache. Ariadne also needs PHP 4 running as a module (not via CGI!) and a database, either MySQL, PostgreSQL or MS SQLserver.
If you come upon any problems during or after installation, you can always ask on the ariadne support newsgroups or mailing lists.
