3. Load the database definition from the file appropriate to your database, either flexinode.mysql or flexinode.pgsql.

4. Move all of the files in flexinode/contrib into the flexinode directory.

Flexinode consists of the Drupal module (flexinode.module) and a number of included files representing the various field types that a flexinode can have. Seven of these field types were written by the module's original author (Jonathan Chaffer), and a number of contributed field types were written by various other people. When you put the entire flexinode folder into the modules directory, you moved all seven of the core field types there. In the archive file that you downloaded from is a folder named flexinode/contrib, which contains the various contributed field types. After perusing the README text, you can decide which of the contributed field types you would like to have available. These should also go into the modules/flexinode folder on the web server. In the end, an installation of Flexinode with all available field types will look like Figure 4-7.
