Flyspray Installation

Thankfully flyspray is in the debian repository, so I'm going to go ahead and apt-get install it. In the future, I will likely try to integrate it with other applications, at which point it would make sense to install it manually.

I ran into a problem when the debconf script tried to restart the database. It would hang, so I interrupted it. Seemed like it may have messed up my mysql tables a little, but so far the only error I get is:

Stopping MySQL database server: mysqld.

Starting MySQL database server: mysqld.

Checking for corrupt, not cleanly closed and upgrade needing tables..
After that, I started to manually configure it. This is where flyspray really impressed me, it has a guided setup which is very easy to follow. The debian installer omitted a few things (setup and sql), but other than that, it was a cakewalk.

All in all, I was able to install flyspray in a half an hour.
