I'm looking at installing Selfoss, but am a bit wary of doing so without understanding what the items in config.ini are.

Are they documented somewhere? All I can see now on the subject is "Insert database access data in config.ini"

This is what I understand so far - can anyone else fill in the blanks or otherwise clarify?

Never mind. I scrolled down the home page to find it.

Wow. For some reason, I was just expecting it to be in that installation section, and when I saw the upgrade section, I assumed that was the end.
