+Currently the installation of Zine is only possible on (mostly) posix
+systems like OS X, Solaris, BSD or Linux. Development of Zine works
+on other operating systems as well and future release may provide a
+deployment plan for Windows as well.
+To install Zine on your system you have to configure and "make install" it::
+ $ ./configure --prefix=/usr && make install
+Zine installs itself into `/usr/lib/zine` and `/usr/share/zine`. Please
+note that this does not install the dependencies.
+The following examples hows how to set up Zine for `mod_wsgi`.
+1. Create a new folder `/var/zine/yourblog` where `yourblog` is a name
+ that make sense for you.
+2. Copy the `zine.wsgi` file from `/usr/share/zine/servers` into the
+ newly created folder and open it with an editor.
+3. Modify the `INSTANCE_FOLDER` variable to point to the `yourblog` folder.
+4. Open your Apache vhost config or your Apache config, whatever you use
+ and add the following lines::
+ WSGIScriptAlias /yourblog /var/zine/yourblog/zine.wsgi
+ This tells Apache that it should hook your blog into the webserver at
+ `/yourblog`. You can also move it to a different vhost and mount it
+ in the root or ask Apache to spawn as different user. More details
+ about that are available in the `mod_wsgi documentation`_.
+5. Make sure the user your Apache (or application if you configured a
+ different user for mod_wsgi) has read and write access to the
+6. Reload your apache and go to the URL of your blog and follow the
+ installation instructions.
