Appendix B. Installing Mahara

This book is aimed at Mahara users, rather than Mahara administrators. However, a new user may wish to install a Mahara instance in order to experiment. Also, lots of people like to install Mahara on their own Linux machines or on a web server of their own in order to organize their own personal learning data.

This section is for those of you who have some knowledge of web applications and servers or feel like you could have a good go at installing Mahara. We don't give full explanations of each technical term we use, as we assume some prior knowledge.

Many of the instructions in this chapter mirror the advice contained in the Mahara wiki on installing the software. See http://wiki.Mahara.org/System_Administrator%27s_Guide/Installing_Mahara ...
