Next you can select if you want to start with an empty Redaxo site (select Setup database), or if you'd like to have some demo data installed to play with - in this case select Import REDAXO 4.4 export [Import Demo] and choose an SQL dump to import:

Next specify an admin login and click on Proceed to step 5:

Your Redaxo installation is now complete:

You can reach the backend under

This is how the backend looks:

To enable real URLs, we need to install one of the real URL addons from I choose the realurl addon here. For Redaxo 4.4, it can be installed as follows:

First go to the redaxo/include/addons/ directory:

cd /var/www/

Download, unzip and chown the addon:

chown www-data:www-data realurl_remastered
rm -f

Next open

cd realurl_remastered

... and change TYPE=MyISAM to ENGINE=MyISAM:

  $db->setQuery('CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `'.$REX['TABLE_PREFIX'].'realurl_pathcache` (
                      `realurl_id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
                      `realurl_article_id` int(11) NOT NULL default 0,
                      `realurl_clang` int(11) NOT NULL default 0,
                      `realurl_hash` text NOT NULL,
                      `realurl_path` text NOT NULL,
                      `realurl_createdate` int(11) NOT NULL default 0,
                       PRIMARY KEY  (`realurl_id`)
                    ) ENGINE=MyISAM;');

In the Redaxo backend, under AddOn, the realurl_remastered addon should now be listed. Click on install...

... and activate to enable it:

Afterwards, you should find Realurl in the AddOns category in the menu on the left. Go there, enable rewriting (Benutze mod_rewrite), and click on Speichern (= save):

Now you can visit the frontend and browse it (if you have installed demo data). If everything is ok, real URLs should work:
