For the 2.0 release, we wrote a bunch of documentation. The
documentation is still for the current release (2.4) valid except for
few points. In short what need to be done for the normal installation is:
1. untar chameleon somewhere
2. Create a web-accessible /tmp/ms_tmp/
3. Create the following aliases in apache:
chameleon/htdocs/ -> /chameleon/
chameleon/samples/htdocs/ -> /chameleon/samples/
4. Edit the chameleon/config/chameleon.xml configuration file. You
probably have to copy chameleon.dist.xml. The documentation is in the file.
5. Test the installation at:
Note that to save trouble, you may consider to install with FGS:
It's a self-installer for mapserver.
