Six students at Chelsea School have completed a TKLPatch for Ampache. Ampache is a web-based streaming media server and file manager. The attached patch is intended to be applied to the TurnKey Linux’s LAMP stack to produce a bootable, installable Ampache disc image. The intent is to make deployment of an Ampache solution as effortless as possible for educators.
Attached: ampache.tar.gz (product of tklpatch-bundle)
Build notes, the text of the conf script, usage notes, and an ISO produced from the patch are available at http://9while9.com .
Note that while the disc installs the LAMP stack and Ampache, it does not configure Ampache. We are puzzled about how to accomplish that and welcome suggestions.Configuration is web-based and contingent on their being a root MySQL account. During configuration, Ampache confirms existence of dependencies, requests a name and password for the Ampache DB, and then asks for admin account user name and password. It then offers you a file called ampache.cfg.php to download. The user must then upload that file back to Ampache in a subdirectory called config. The docs for the configuration process are at the Ampache site here .
We look forward to comments, suggestions, revision ideas, etc. The students are still new at this and eager for feedback.
