one has to be more precise here. The released versions (tar balls) including oacs 5.2.3 do not work unchanged with aolserver 4-5. The newest versions from cvs work (e.g. the newest version from the oacs-5-2 branch, or cvs head).

Unless you are a developer needing the newest features from aolserver 4.5, i would recommend to stick with aolserver 4.0.10.

Is there any overview of the changes that were made to support AOLserver 4.5, in case I want to modify an existing installation?

Could we update the Prerequisites page to highlight the fact that AOLServer4.5 doesn't work?


I have OpenACS 5.0.4 working with AOLServer 4.5. I would have opted for 4.0.10 if I was aware of problems.

The compatibility matrix is your friend

aolserver 4.5 requires OpenACS 5.2

The page, you are pointing to, is not mentioning aolserver 4.5.

Or more precisely, the xowiki compatibility matrix is your friend :) Thanks, AOLServer 4.5 is working well for me at the moment.

I didn't know AOLServer 4.5 was incompatible with OpenACS 5.0.4 and earlier. When upgrading I had an issue with the content type for text/html. This hack/patch enabled me to upgrade to OpenACS 5.2.3:

ah-h, yes, I see. Thank you for the advice, I will stick with
aolserver 4.0.10.

I am working on an install package of dotlrn for gentoo, called an ebuild. I just wanted to get the versions correct.
The current ebuild for aolserver is broke. If aolserver-4.5.0 worked with the released versions of oacs-5.2, I would've built a new ebuld for that ver. Since it does not, I will see about fixing the existing ebuild.

Thanks again,
