However, sitemagic.org actually explains the steps necessary quite well, so rather than repeating what as already been written, let's just link to the existing guide which is found here: How to install Sitemagic CMS
Installing Sitemagic CMS is just a click of a button using the Web Installer. Enjoy :-)
Once the Web Installer is done, it will provide a link to your brand new website. Click the link and continue below.
When Sitemagic CMS has been installed, go to the website, and click the Log In link in the upper right cornor (see image below). Now enter the default username and password (which are both "admin") and click Log in below the input fields.
Once logged in, Sitemagic CMS will check for updates, and you will be alerted if an update is available for you. And don't worry. Updating Sitemagic CMS is just as easy as installing it - a click of a button. But for now everything is up to date and ready to use.
