Demo setup notes

Johan Solve-2
Here are some intitial demo setup notes. I will add to this during the (powered!) flight which leaves in a moment, but this is what Brian Loomis came across when he got the demo set up.

Site root
---------
In index.lasso the variable site_root is set to '/knop/'. Set it to whatever path you have put the demo solution in. It should have a leading and trailing slash, or just a single slash if the files are at the virtual host's root.

Navigation method
-----------------
The demo files are unfortunately set to path, which adds an unnecessary complexity to the setup since you need to set up an atbegin handler or similar in that case.
Change the navmethod variable to param instead in _config/cfg__global.inc to get going more easily and so you don't have to worry about setting up the url handling.

Setting up the MySQL demo database
----------------------------------
The restore_database_playground.lasso file doesn't work until the database actually exists and Lasso knows about it. So first create the playground database in MySQL using your preferred method. You do not need to create any tables in it. Make Lasso see the database by going to siteadmin and reload the database listing for your MySQL host. The playground database should now appear in the listing. Make sure it is enabled.
Now you should be able to run restore_database_playground.lasso to have the table created and filled with the demo data.

And finally Lasso versions
--------------------------
Knop should work with Lasso 8.1 and 8.5.


Good luck!
