KnowledgeTree virtual install on 8.04 server?

    I installed Knowledge Tree 3.01 a while back (see the tutorial here), in 8.04 server under an ISPCofig site, however there were some problems with installing the OpenOffice component and with scheduling KnowledgeTree's (KT) periodic database operations, namely some bugs in their scheduler php code that prevent it from running.

    Later I installed the Windows version of the KT stack install in a Windows VM, with more success, but for a different document base.

    Now, I'd like to revisit the original document base and make a fresh Linux install in a virtualized environment then migrate the data.

    KT is now available as a virtual appliance for VMWare, for Xen, and as an iso. My question is which to choose for my 8.04 server, and from there whether first to upgrade 8.04 --> 8.10 if there is some advantage to that.

    If you have VMware or Xen installed on your server, you could download a virtual appliance; otherwise you'd have to use the ISO.

    Unfortunately I can't say anything about the Ubuntu upgrade... :eek:

    Thanks, falko,

    My question about upgrading is whether there is any good reason to do so before setting up VMWare or Xen, or whether it really doesn't matter if either of the virtual environments are running under Ubutnu 8.04 or 8.10 (or for that matter soon 9.04) server editions.

    It doesn't matter - you can run VMware or Xen on all of these Ubuntu versions (if you use 8.10, the Xen setup is a bit difficult - see - but VMware is no problem).

    Thanks, falko,

    I'll give it a try and post back here if I find anything unusual or problematic.
