I’ve spent the last few days trying to get kaltura (http://kaltura.org) installed onto my Debian 6x system running virtualmin/webmin.
I had no problem at all actually installing kaltura, but in the end I would only get a 404 when trying to reach the kaltura admin start page.
At that point, I had a sysadmin friend of mine jump in and take a look. After a few hours of digging around he came to the point where it was determined that something with virtualmin is causing a problem.
I am NOT a sysadmin in any fashion, just a poor bloke with a server who is trying his darndest to learn this stuff, so I am sure my terminology may be off at times.
If it’s ok, I’ll post in what he told me via skype to see if it makes any sense to someone here as to what I should be trying.
I can say that our setup was to create a sub-domain virtualhost, and use that address during the install of kaltura.
Here is the conversation:
ok it works but doesn’t you didn’t have a catch all in bind9 for subdomains
I added the kultra or whatever and now pings and works BUT now you have virtual server issue
it works when I turn off other sites you never created the subdomain I can do this
create a virtual subdomain for it so I can attach the info to the file
please add it it needs it own unique IP virtual only way you have some interface handling it and I cant overide or it kills all other sites.
it is messing everything I am trying to do up
so your on your own
the kaltura works I can verify this by blocking your virtual admin software stuff it shows start page etc so you just need to figure out virtualadmin stuff
i tried adding subdomain but it is subdomain for files not for virtual host override it doesn’t even add a URL for it
may want to create a new site and do it that way it is nothing wrong
not sure you understand it is 100% the virtual stuff it is all a ok when you bypass that stuff want to see? it kills your other sites
when it includes sites-enabled/ it kills your stuff
let me see if there is anything I can see in there do you use default port 80 localhost for anything
phpmyadmin or anything ip/phpmyadmin or anything like that in the var/www
just need to get the file integrated into vritual admin or lost I dont know virtual admin but when i try to do it normaly it works within linux
Well that is the pertinent part. I was able to see kaltura working perfectly when he did it manually, but that killed all the sites on the server, which we couldn’t keep.
Just in case it helps, here is the installation instructions for kaltura. Maybe something will stand out?
also, kaltura generates a .conf file which as part of the installation instructions we do an include in the apache conf file.
Here is that file
*I changed the ip and hostname but other than that it is what kaltura uses.
I really LOVE virtualmin, and as a rookie I’d be lost without it, so I would really love to be able to keep it and also use the kaltura engine.
Can anyone point to what we might be doing wrong with kaltura and virtualmin together?
thanks so much for taking the time to read such a long post!
