About this document

This manual gives you an introduction on how to install or upgrade your TYPO3 CMS installation.

The "Installation" section is aimed at beginners who want to get a fresh TYPO3 CMS website up and running. The "Update" section targets those who already have a running website and want to migrate it to a newer version of TYPO3 CMS.

You must go through the steps in the section "Quick Installation" in order to get your TYPO3 installation up and running. During or after that, you have the option go through the section "In-Depth Installation" to configure TYPO3 in more detail.
