AmpJuke installation example

This example is from a real-life installation of AmpJuke version 0.8.8.

Let's start off with this situation:

- In this example, we assume your webserver is called www.my-ampjuke-server.org.

- The webserver's "doc_root" is set to /var/www. We assume you have the program files located in /var/www/ampjuke-0.8.8 (if you're using a shared server - f.ex. from an ISP - the path may look different). 

- Your music is stored in several folders starting from /mnt/usb/my_music and beyond that directory.
Note that's outside the "doc_root" mentioned above, so your precious music will not be "visible" for outsiders to retrieve/download.

- You configured and has full access to MySQL (that is: you have a username and -password that enables you to drop/create databases as well as tables).
