that is more or less all you need but it isn't really a one time only
install. Why not just register an account on the new Techdis sandpit?

Subject: [Xerte] Setting up on a virtual server for dummies




Can I start by pointing out I am not a techie when it comes to servers, so
apologies if I make schoolboy errors in this request.  I am an advisor for
an RSC and I would like to get a server install of xerte on line toolkits so
I can learn how to use the system, and hopefully demonstrate and teach
others,  how they can use the system if they were to install it on their own

I've been told I can request a virtual server to do this but I need to have
the complete details of requirements before I go any further, including
details of any requires additional software.  

Looking at the Installation guide it looks like I will need:

.        A PHP Server running version 5.2 or above

.        A Mysql install

Is this all I need?  

Will I need these to be set up in a certain way? 

Can anyone recommend specific versions of these?

How much server space should I ask for? (This won't be a heavily used Xerte
but it will need to be big enough to cope with probably a maximum of 50
learning objects)

Are there any other specifications I should request for this virtual server?

Is there a preconfigured virtual machine that can be download which would be
an easier option?

Am I too out of my depth even thinking about this without guaranteed
on-going technical support and maintenance?
