    let's say I want to upload my Akelos-based website to some hosting service.
    the host provider supports PHP 5 , but has NO Akelos installed, it will be fine?

    You can upload it on a shared host but you have to install akelos there. Just define the AK_FRAMEWORK_DIRK as bermi suggested in another discussion.

    Or akelos should be able to include the framework into your application (from the booklink tutorial):

    Usage: setup [-sqphf --dependencies] <-d> 
    -deps --dependencies      Includes a copy of the framework into the application
                              directory. (true)
    -d --directory=<value>    Destination directory for installing the application.
    -f --force                Overwrite files that already exist. (false)
    -h --help                 Show this help message.
    -p --public_html=<value>  Location where the application will be accesed by the
                              webserver. ()
    -q --quiet                Suppress normal output. (false)
    -s --skip                 Skip files that already exist. (false)



    The requirements are really low. PHP4 or PHP5, MySQL or SQLite and 5MB HD space.

    Akelos has been coded with shared hosting in mind. As "iJyrki" points, you can move the location of about anything in Akelos, so if after you have coded your app you want to move everything into a ./includes/ folder, Akelos makes it ieasy to decide your source organization.

    Akelos at a server level is not required at all. Akelos is self contained, but if you have several apps on a same server it comes handy to have a centralized installation.
