This looks very detailed and i'm actualy anxious to try it out myself. A few points though. I don't like your line numbers. I have an editor that does line numbers and perlmonks itself I have configured for line numbers, your number don't match those and add a layer of confusion. I can't download everything and work from your line numbers and run the scripts, since the line numbers break the script so that part bugs me. Also while mentioning the line numbers it would be nice if they were bold so i could see a line i was curious about and then jump up to your explanation. I don't know if I'm alone, but I like to read the code and only read the text when I am confused.

Second I think any beginner is going to see that huge list of modules and the length of this and be quite afraid. Maybe eliminate some of the unneeded modules? AutoRun and Config are definitely nice, but if you went without your code doesn't get much worse while the prerequisite list will drop down.

Finaly, for the mysql username addition, you probably want to mention they can use the MD5 function in mysql to get that hash. You should be able to just change the example to

insert into user_info (username, password) values ( 'username', md5('password') );
