I’ve installed it on Dell PCs with Ubuntu, several different versions including 7.04 and 7.10 server.
Follow the instructions on this page:
They do also work on Ubuntu, but you’d have to go through the builds manually versus using apt; I’ve come to prefer doing these steps manually just so I have more control and understanding of paths and config options. My thoughts though based on your comments, is that it is either a config.ini issue or a httpd.conf issue. Solr wouldn’t come into play until you actually try to run a search, and you seem to indicate the error occurs immediately when accessing the front page.
I am trying to install vufind on Ubuntu 7.04 server on a Dell pc and I have run into some difficulties following the installation instructions from William & Mary's Swem Library: http://techview.wordpress.com/2007/07/30/vufind-with-ubuntu/ We are currently running Voyager 6.5.1
I was able to perform all of the steps, but when I went to view my ip address for vufind: http://your.ip.address/vufind, I ran into some php problems:
The error states,
An Error has occured
Cannot Load Action
Please contact the Library Reference Department for assistance
I think that there may be some problems with my solr installation. Also, when I spoke with Andrew Nagy, he mentioned that the William & Mary installation instructions were a bit outdated and meant for version 5, not 6. If I were to re-install the vufind software on ubuntu server 7.04, which steps should I follow. Andrew mentioned that I should only follow some of the steps up to a certain point.
I also received some marcxml errors, even though marcxml records were created in vufind.
