Well, I was just about to get started trying to install Scriptaculous ( on my Dreamhost account, and I thought I’d check the wiki and the forums to see if there were any tips for getting started.

I haven’t found anything, so I remain pretty daunted by what I’m about to undertake.

If anyone has any experience with this installation, I’d love to hear any tips. I’ll come back and give a low-down on my experience if I manage to figure it out.


I looked at the install instructions on the wiki of that other site. Seems that it’s no harder than just uploading the files to whatever directory you want to have them in. Your best bet would be to read all of the examples and such that they give and try them out on your server to get use to calling the functions.
