Kohana::init(array(
	'base_url'   => '/myweb/app/',
));

http://localhost/myweb/app/

You should see the installation page. If it reports any errors, you will need to correct them before continuing. Once your install page reports that your environment is set up correctly you need to either rename or delete install.php in the root directory. Kohana is now installed and you should see the output of the welcome controller: hello, world!
