+0. DATABASE SETUP
+
+* MySQL
+-------
+Setting up the mysql database can be done by creating an empty database,
+importing the table layout and granting the proper permissions to the
+roundcube user. Here is an example of that procedure:
+
+# mysql
+> create database 'roundcubemail';
+> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON roundcubemail.* TO roundcube@localhost
+ IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
+> quit
+# mysql roundcubemail < ${MY_INSTALLDIR}/SQL/mysql.initial.sql
+
+For MySQL version 4.1 and up, it's recommended to create the database for
+RoundCube with the following command:
+> CREATE DATABASE `roundcube` DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
+
+
+* SQLite
+--------
+Here is an example how you can setup the sqlite.db for roundcube:
+
+# sqlite -init SQL/sqlite.initial.sql sqlite.db
+
+Make sure your configuration points to the sqlite.db file and that the
+webserver can write to the file.
+
+
+* PostgreSQL
+------------
+To use RoundCube with PostgreSQL support you have to follow the next
+simple steps, which have to be done with the postgres system user (or
+which ever is the database superuser):
+
+$ createuser roundcubemail
+$ createdb -O roundcubemail roundcubemail
+$ psql roundcubemail
+
+roundcubemail =# ALTER USER roundcube WITH PASSWORD 'the_new_password';
+roundcubemail =# \c - roundcubemail
+roundcubemail => \i ${MY_INSTALLDIR}/SQL/postgres.initial.sql
+
+
+1. CONFIGURATION
+ Modify the files in ${MY_INSTALLDIR}/config/* to suit your local environment
+
+2. PHP CONFIGURATION
+
+ - error_reporting E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE (or lower)
+ - file_uploads on (for attachment upload features)
+ - memory_limit (increase as suitable to support large attachments)
