Setting up Jinzora

Run the installer
The installer will automatically configure jinzora, and create the database. Open up your webbrowser and go to http://localhost/jinzora/index.php and follow the instructions
Pay attentions to these setup steps:
Page 4 - Installation Type : Change from 'Streaming' to 'Streaming & Jukebox' if you wish to listen to the music on the computer you're installing Jinzora2 on (it's primarily a streaming application to allow remote access to, and control of, a streaming server running it).
Page 5 - Main Settings : If you hover over the boxes here, they explain the settings, so choose whatever you want. It's best to choose 'Database' for Backend Type. I'd also suggest using the 'Tag Data' option for 'Data Structure', unless your music is organized on your filesystem exactly the way you want it to be.
Page 6 - Backend Setup : Unless you've used Jinzora before, or for some reason wish to manually create a MySQL database for it to use, then select 'True' under 'Create Database'.
Page 7 - Import Media : This step may take a few minutes if you've got a few gigs of music; simply enter into the box the directory where your music is stored. When the installer's finished importing the music from this directory, you'll have the option to import as many other directories as you want, one after the other.
You can also import more files from the Settings interface when Jinzora is up and running. You don't have to do it while installing.
