Hi Raymond,

Regarding activation, you mean you set user_activation_on = True, right?
You can just leave 'user_activation_on = False', which is the default (and
the value if left commented), which will disable any requirement of having
a local SMTP server for user creation and won't validate the account.

If this instance is going to be a production server, I'd *strongly*
recommend just starting it right now with a Postgresql database.  Porting
data over is not something you'll want to have to deal with.
