Data Collected in This Step

General Settings

Site name

The name, or title, for your site.

Slogan for your site

A slogan, or sub-title, for your site.

Debug mode

This allows you to enter your new site with debugging information displayed. While a running website should have this turned off, it can be very useful if there are any issues with the install. Enable debug (inline mode) is the most commonly used value.

Turn your site off?

Select yes to turn your site off. In this state, immediately after install only the newly created admin account will be able to access the site. This will allow you to configure your site to your satisfaction before allowing public access.

HTML meta tags contain data describing a site. Some modules may set page specific meta tags. The tag values entered here will be used if not overridden by page specific values.
