Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Knoppix Boot CD
How does this Knoppix install work exactly? E.g., it needs to write to a hard disk at least for the PostgreSQL database, right, so how/where does it do that? Is this Knoppix install adequate for setting up a Production OpenACS instance too, or is it strictly for quick demos and the like? And why?
You can write to a ram disk. I guess that's what PostgreSQL is doing there. You can install your Knoppix boot system to your harddrive, however that because Knoppix still is a mixture of Debian and RedHat it is usually not recommended.
