I need to compile on my own?
« on: March 18, 2009, 11:04:02 pm »
I was directed to opengoo as a suggestion for online collaboration and composing.  Looks like a lot of good stuff.

As a non-techie, though, I can't quite figure out what to do with the files I downloaded.  No executibles equals no clue for folks like myself.

Is there somewhere I can get a WinXP version that will work without further compilation, or am I out of luck?

Thanks.

Hello,

It's a web-based tool. It doesn't need compilation but it will need a web server and a database server. In order for people to collaborate with it the web server should be accessible by all of them.

The easiest way to set up a web and database server on a Windows machine is via a package such as xampp http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html . It has an installer and sets everything up. After it's set up you'll have to unzip the opengoo files into xampp's apache root directory.

However, I suggest that before you get into all that, take a look at the demo that's hosted at http://demo.opengoo.org/ to make sure opengoo suits you :)

Thanks for the info.  I'll look into doing all this, but first look at the demo, as you suggest.

I appreciate the help!
