Installing Koha's software stack

In this final section we demonstrate the installation steps on Debian and openSUSE.

Installing packages using the package manager

We will install most packages using the package manager. Having installed Git in an earlier section, readers are already familiar with the commands used to install individual packages; in this section, we also look at ways of speeding up the process.

You can install the packages one-by-one like this:

koha@li190-245:~/kohaclone> sudo apt-get install apache2

On openSuSE, the command would look like this:

koha@li190-245:~/kohaclone> sudo yast -i apache2

Or you can install multiple packages in one statement:

koha@li190-245:~/kohaclone> sudo apt-get install ...
