    After Step 12, (before #13) the wizard asks for Plugins and Extensions. There is checkbox for Enable X Protocol / MySQL as a Document Store. The default value is NOT checked. If this is checked then it enables other two items a) Text Box for Port Number which shows default value 33060. b) Checkbox for Open Firewall port for network access. Default value is NOT checked.
    Should we keep this screen of wizard as Default? or what? I have a screenshot if you did like to see?
