OASIS: Installation Instructions
The goal of OASIS, the OpenACS VM, is to provide truly hassle-free test-drives of the platform, particularly for Windows users who haven’t
been particularly well supported historically.
OASIS 5.1 has a stock debian linux installation on it,
and the following OpenACS components:
Openacs 5.1.1 (port 8000)
dotLRN 2.0.3 (port 8080)
Download and install the free [VMWare Player].
Unzip all files into a directory.
Boot up your VM (Power On) in VMWare Player by double-clicking on the file Linux.vmx.
Login as root and confirm network connectivity using ifconfig/ping/etc
Once you've determined your VM's IP address, you can access it at the URL's http://
:8000 (OpenACS ) or http://
The VM is set to use bridged networking and DHCP. Type
ifconfig eth0 to figure out your IP address, or
ifconfig eth0 ip_address to assign one.
