Bonjour Isabelle,

The basic configuration options are related to the database connection:

// Hostname of the MySQL database
$CDASH_DB_HOST = 'localhost';
// Login for MySQL database access
// Password for MySQL database access
// Name of the MySQL database

These should be the only configuration options you need to get started 
with CDash.

We are actively working on the documentation and installation procedure. 
We hope to have it ready soon.

Let us know if you have any issues,
