OpenACS/.LRN for Debian


Logo


Packages of OpenACS  and .LRN  are now available for Debian GNU/Linux . We hope to facilitate the adoption by novices and the infrastructure deployment by professional users, both running Debian GNU/Linux  and its derivates. Our packaging activity explicitly targets Debian GNU/Linux  stable , testing and unstable . Important dependencies are co-maintained with the Debian Tcl/Tk Maintainers .

See also OpenACS for Ubuntu.

Getting started

Please, review the section on supported distributions first.  Currently, the core packages (openacs, dotlrn) and their dependencies are included into the official Debian GNU/Linux  repositories.

Install


  1. Run:

    apt-get update

  2. (optional) Provide for a PostgreSQL environment: If you don't have a PostgreSQL installation at hand, provide one. You do not need to care about setting up a concrete data base. This is automatically done by the openacs and dotlrn post-install instructions. For further PostgreSQL-related set-up issue, see ...

    apt-get install postgresql
    If you run a remote PostgreSQL instance, remember to allow for access of the PostgreSQL Administrator (postgres) and the openacs/dotlrn user from machine hosting your OpenACS/.LRN installation.

  3. Install the core packages and follow the on-screen instructions:

    # OpenACS
    apt-get install openacs
    ... or ...

    # .LRN
    apt-get install dotlrn

After Install

  1. (optional) To change IP address and port of the instance, please edit the file:

    # OpenACS
    /etc/openacs/openacs.sh

    # dotLRN
    /etc/dotlrn/dotlrn.sh


  2. (optional) To control the instance using daemontools, please install the daemontools debian packages and follow the instructions on the file:


    # OpenACS
    /usr/share/doc/openacs/README.daemontools

    # dotLRN
    /usr/share/doc/dotlrn/README.daemontools

To-dos
