How to install Pulse in 45 seconds
This is the new "famous 5 minute install".
Unzip pulse.zip and upload the all the files/folders inside to the root of your domain. Do not upload the "pulse" folder itself, just the files/folders inside of it. However, if you wish to install into a sub-folder for development, then you can upload the whole package as domain.com/pulsecm5 or something similar.
There are no config or other files to edit. Just visit yoursite.com/admin/install.php and the installer will take care of everything and set all the necessary paths and details.
Go to: yoursite.com/admin and login. The default password is "demo". Go to Settings and change the password to something only you know, save, and off you go!
