  1. Download library files and module files. Check the download section below
  2. Place the library directory into sites/all/libraries, so the structure would be like sites/all/libraries/dfm_lite/core/...
  3. Place the module directory into sites/all/modules and install it as usual.
  4. Create configuration profiles and assign them to user roles at /admin/config/media/dfm
  5. Users can access the file manager at /dfm. Non default file systems can be accessed at dfm/SCHEME
  6. Enable Drupella FM for File Field module if you want to select files from Drupella FM for your image/file fields. You must check the Allow users to select files from Drupella FM for this field option in your field's configuration page.
  7. If you want to upgrade to full version just copy the full module folder over the existing one.
