You should mention this appears to install this within a coldbox site that already exists. Thus, we need to also install coldbox, yes?

This blog post is out of date when it comes to these installation slugs John. I'll write a new post on the new slugs, and then I'll add a link to this point to be more thorough and clear. Thanks for pointing this out.
