Step 4 of EVE Online killboard installation will create some tables and will wait until you press the link for importing data.
In case you aborted the install and you got already data in those tables you can bypass the import by clicking on a link in the right bottom corner.
Otherwise the installer will read the packages and will ask for optional SQL data to be inserted into the database.

Select what you need and click OK. If you doubt select everything to be inserted into the database.
In step 5 search for your alliance, corporation or just create one.
Make sure you spell your corporation/alliance correctly (including capitalization), else you cannot post any mails!

Step 6 will ask what will be the administrator password, EVE Online killboard title, site, host, style, images and common URL’s.
Just for the record, these folders can be updated with new images and stuff if a new EVE Online patch appears and the images have changed.

There are no kills yet so click on the link called ‘Admin’ enter with username and password, and the above window will appear.
You will need to add an API key of your EVE Online corporation’s director with full rights. Go to ‘Features -> API Mod’ and save the settings. If you intend to make it personal killboard, enter just your character’s API key.
