To make it simple to get liveSite installed on your web host, we have partnered with the largest software auto-installers in the industry. One of them is probably already located in your web host's control panel, but if not, you can install liveSite directly from their site in most cases. If you have the skills to install PHP/MySQL applications, you can also download and install liveSite yourself.
Web professionals can download and install liveSite on any dedicated or shared server.
