        • Replace the cover of your system
      • Installing your own Web Server
        • Close all your programs
        • Run Setup.exe
        • Restart your system
      • Installing your own Database
    • Configuring
      • Configuring hard storage devices
      • Configuring your Web Server
      • Configuring a Database
