PhenoDB is built on the Django web application framework and uses MySQL as the underlying
database. It is designed to run on recent releases of Centos 6, and it will also run on
recent releases Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora Core.
The distribution is composed of a compressed 'tar' file which contains both the PhenoDB
software and all the software tools to run it.
The root directory of the software includes a README.TXT which contains instructions on how
to install the software with the included installer, and how to install the software manually
should you want a custom installation. You will need to read this file before doing an installation.
If you are upgrading your PhenoDB installation, you will need to check the VERSIONS.TXT file
which contains information on each version of PhenoDB as well as special instructions on how
to upgrade from version to version.
