Forum OpenACS Development: Re: OpenACS 5.10.0 beta 1 available

Posted by Antonio Pisano on
Dear Frank,

the recommended way to install Naviserver on most Linux distributions is via the install-ns script, as explained here

For what concerns Windows, you should probably get in contact with Maurizio:

All the best

Hi Antonio,

Thanks, got NaviServer running on CentOS 8, and I've seen that Maurizio has the same version compiled for Windows, that's great.

So I'm one step further, I could see the login page, but I get an error after login from "security::validated_host_header". is the IP of the DEV server running the instance, but I'm access it using http://localhost:8002. I don't see no bad...

I seem to remember this error, it is possible we disabled validated_host_header in OpenACS 5.9.1.

If you want to reproduce the bug: We've got the ]po[ V5.1 CentOS VM available for download (for VMware player or ESXi): ->
