= 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 =

  0. install ubuntu 5.04 server
  0. 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
    }}}

  0. edit {{{/etc/apt/sources.list}}} removing cdrom source at top and uncommenting universe sources
  0. do the apt-get dance ({{{apt-get update}}} and {{{apt-get upgrade}}})
  0. install the following using apt-get:
     * ssh
     * apache2
     * mysql-server
     * phpmyadmin

= Configuring mysql =

  0. Point a web brower at {{{http://158.59.195.113/phpmyadmin/}}}
  0. By default, username {{{root}}} with no password is enabled
  0. Login, click on "Change password", and change the password


= 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 =

  0. 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/[^.#]*
  }}}
  0. Create a file named azi.conf in /etc/apache2/sites-available with the following:
  {{{

  0. create a sym-link in sites-enabled:
  {{{ln -s /etc/apache2/sites-available/azi.conf /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/azi.conf}}}



= 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:

    0. Download the latest moodle source
       ({{{wget http://download.moodle.org/stable15/moodle-1.5.2.tgz}}} worked at the time this
       was written
    0. Untar it in {{{/var/www}}}
    0. Point a web browser at {{{http://158.59.195.113/moodle}}}
    0. Run through all the setup pages:
      * use {{{/var/moodledata}}} for data directory
      *


= Installing zope2.7 =
