If you read that page it says to "Install to the root of your Silverstripe Installation' which is your root folder - where theres folders like cms/ sapphire/ jsparty etc.

Run db/build is the name we give to rebuilding the sites database by visiting -

Hi satpal,

I believe that the Google Maps module was a little bit "do it yourself" in the sense that it was more of a developer API than a module that gives you heaps of stuff out of the box.

There is always the option of just using the Google Maps API directly.
