  • Hi Daniel,

    Thanks

    William
  • Hi Daniel,

    Do you have any estimate for the 2.0 release?

    How other people could contribute for Booktype (coding, testing, donation ... )?

    Thanks for attention.

    Hi Felipe, we're aiming for a release in December. Contributions would be very welcome - is there a particular area which interests you?

    One contribution which we need help with is localization. We have a Booktype 2.0 translation project underway at https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/booktype/

    Cheers!

  • Hi Daniel, I'm glad to help you.

    I will start translate into my native language (portuguese).

    Cheers!
  • Hi Daniel,

    I was going through the Booktype 2.0 install, and found these things

    You need to install apache2 earlier, as there is no www-data user or /var/www/html directory until this is installed

    On Ubuntu 14.04 apache2 root is now /var/www/html/

    See https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/httpd.html

    • The DocumentRoot
      directive specifies where Apache2 should look for the files that make
      up the site. The default value is /var/www/html, as specified in /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf. If desired, change this value in your site's virtual host file, and remember to create that directory if necessary!

    Also Ubuntu 1404 does not allow to login as www-data user by default

    Ubuntu 14.04 - Allow Login As www-data User - see http://programster.blogspot.com/2014/05/ubuntu-1404-allow-login-as-www-data-user.html

    Apache2 needs to be installed before you start using apache root dir, and before "sudo su www-data"

    My Install works when I use ./manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8005 ( with the above changes ) URL : http://10.0.0.5:8005/

    But not when I start using "Apache configuration"

    I am using a local site ( not for the INTERNET ), my servers IP is 10.0.0.5, any advice, I think I might not be setting one or more of the apache settings properly

    Thanks William for the feedback, I will check on these details. You are right that there will be no www-data user set up if Apache is not installed. The DocumentRoot of /var/www/html/ is only a default setting, many paths are available to Apache. I did not know Ubuntu sets nologin for www-data now, so thanks for that tip.

    Could you post your Apache configuration file for Booktype from /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ please?

    Cheers!

    Daniel

  • Hello again everyone.

    Is there any updated time estimate for when Booktype 2.0 is ready for production release?
