	Create the local elgg/engine/settings.php file.
		Be sure to specify unl_social as the database name

Create a local directory named elgg_data for elgg to write to outside of the web root.

Make sure the local site has an updated copy of the unl templatedependents

******
** Troubleshooting
******
After navigating to the elgg dir in your browser and filling in the correct database info - 
if you get the error that elgg can't connect to your database do this:
1. find your php.ini file, probably located at /etc/php.ini.default and rename it to php.ini
2. edit the mysql.default_socket line to include the path to your mysql.sock file, e.g.
   mysql.default_socket = /private/tmp/mysql.sock

If the mobile site or the regular site starts pulling in the Absolute template rather than the specified template
you may need to set up a symbolic link for the wdn directory.  The UNL_Templates package will 
    >> cd elgg/
    >> ln -s /var/www/html/wdn wdn

full_dump.sql is is full copy of the mysql database that must be modified upon import.
safe_dump.sql can be imported without the need for modification

when importing full_dump.sql, you must modify certain rows in the tables elggdatalists and elggsites_entity so
that they pertain to the local elgg site instance. 	(so if you see something like

** Things to look out for when new versions of Elgg are released
*******
98
-- Look at elgg's upgrade readme and look for changes to .htaccess
99
100
-- Are there changes to /elgg/actions/login.php and /elgg/actions/logout.php ?????
	We have overridden those actions with our own in the cas_auth_unl plugin
