So a guy comes up to me and wants to know what the absolute minimum effort to get a Mantissa server running is.
So I tell him:
Install Epsilon, Axiom, and Mantissa (You already have Python 2.5, PySQLite2, and Twisted 8.2 installed, right? This step will become "apt-get install python-mantissa" just as soon as we find a debian guy, promise).
axiomatic -d my.axiom mantissa
axiomatic -d my.axiom start -n
You now have a Mantissa server up and running. Pretty easy, huh?
Tomorrow: port, SSL, and logfile customization.
