Goal

To run moodle (http://moodle.org/) and zope2.7 (http://www.zope.org/) on port 80 of our school computer science web server (http://linus.yhspatriot.net). We are behind a firewall with only port 80 open, so I needed to setup virtual hosting with apache2 to make this work. I wanted linus.yhspatriot.net to point to a zope2.7 instance, and moodle.yhspatriot.net to point to a moodle instance. I found it convenient to have mysql.yhspatriot.net point to mysql-admin as well.

Setting up the server

  1. install ubuntu 5.04 server.
  2. edit /etc/network/interfaces for static ip address by changing the primary interface to:

    •     # The primary network interface
          iface eth0 inet static
              address 158.59.195.113
              netmask 255.255.252.0
              gateway 158.59.192.1
  3. edit /etc/apt/sources.list removing cdrom source at top and uncommenting universe sources.

  4. do the apt-get dance (apt-get update and apt-get upgrade).

  5. install the following using apt-get:
    • ssh
    • apache2
    • mysql-server
    • phpmyadmin

Configuring mysql

  1. Point a web brower at http://158.59.195.113/phpmyadmin/.

  2. By default, username root with no password is enabled.

  3. Login, click on "Change password", and change the password.

Installing moodle

  • My goal was to use packages from the ubuntu and universe repositories whenever possible, but the after several unsuccessful attempts to use the moodle package I found it much easier to install moodle from source, using the following proceedure:
    1. Download the latest moodle source
      • (wget http://download.moodle.org/stable15/moodle-1.5.2.tgz worked at the time this was written.

    2. Untar it in /var/www.

    3. Point a web browser at http://158.59.195.113/moodle.

Installing zope2.7

Configuring Apache Modules

  • As root, run the following:
    • ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/proxy.conf /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/proxy.conf

  • Repeat with proxy_connect.load and proxy.load

Configuring virtual hosts

  1. Edit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf, adding a NameVirtualHost line, so that the last three lines of the file look like this:

    •     # Include the virtual host configurations
          NameVirtualHost 158.59.195.113:80
          Include /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/[^.#]*
  2. Create a file named azi.conf in /etc/apache2/sites-available with the following:
    •     <VirtualHost 158.59.195.113:80>
          ServerName linus.yhspatriot.net
          ServerAdmin jeff@elkner.net
          ProxyRequests off

          Order deny,allow
          Allow from all
          </Proxy>
          ProxyPass / http://158.59.195.113:8080/
          ProxyPassReverse / http://158.59.195.113:8080/
          ProxyPass /misc_ http://158.59.195.113:8080/misc_
          ProxyPassReverse /misc_ http://158.59.195.113:8080/misc_
          ProxyPass /p_ http://158.59.195.113:8080/p_
