Koha, part 2!
I supposedly have it up again. I haven’t checked it on an external network, but it should work (hopefully).
I just set it up, so there’s nothing in it, but hopefully that will change within the next few days. I only had enough time to add the links on the front page and that little blurb.
There are a few things different about my installation this time. First, it’s in a virtualized server. The last time I tried a Koha installation, it took over my web server and I didn’t really know how to change it. So this time I installed it on a virtual server. It’s Ubuntu again. Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. Server this time. So I got a chance to work in an all command line environment. Virtualization also allows me move this installation around as I wish just by moving the virtual hard drive.
The second thing different is that this is version 3.2. It’s newer, it’s cooler. There’s a good tutorial on the Koha community wiki that explains how to install Koha on Ubuntu. I pretty much followed this verbatim except for one package. I needed the 64-bit version instead of the 32-bit version in this tutorial.
Apache was something of a tough nut to crack. I have two domains from dyndns.org, and I wanted one to point to my website and the other one to point to Koha. Unfortunately, I have only one public IP address, so this doesn’t really work. Instead, I had to put it on a different port. It’s inelegant, but it works. I’ll just have to link it directly from my website.
I’ll update with my progress.
