wget -N http://files.sitemush.com/install.sh
chmod 755 install.sh
./install.sh

Note : This parameter is optional you you can skip this parameter to let SiteMush choose the default server.

You can choose the region in which you want the editor for SiteMush. To choose an editor server please pass the following parameter to the installer : --editor_url=https://us.sitemush.com

List of valid servers is available here : SiteMush Servers

./install.sh --editor_url=https://us.sitemush.com
