Installing on Ubuntu 16.04 LAMP server Documentation

I have been unable to find documentation on the install process for a lamp server install of TAO. Can someone point me in the right direction. I have gone through the users guide but that does not help with installation
Thanks much

  • What version of Tao are you looking to install?

    Thanks,

  • 3.1 stable version

    To install the packages you will need for Tao you can run the following:

    apt install apache2 php php-cli php-common mysql-server php-xml php-zip php-curl php-mbstring libapache2-mod-php php-mcrypt php-mysql curl wget zip tidy unzip

    You will need to configure Apache to point to the location on your server where you will be serving Tao from, /var/www/html/tao for example.

    Thanks,

  • After installing the files above, then use the manual install file to install Tao.
    Looks like very powerful software. I am setting this up for home school testing for my grandkids. If that works I would like to set it up for our churches bible quiz team! Thanks for your help
  • You're welcome!

  • I have Apache2, PHP and MYSQL setup and ready. Just a question on the actual install. I am looking at the TAO install guide and starting at #3 where do I make all of these changes like rewrite and php5 modules enabled, and where do you find global,s magic quotes and short open tag settings. Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks

  • You will need to use php 7.2 or 7.3 if you are using version 3.2 or 3.3. As far as configuring apache you can refer to (https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/configuring.html) and for php (https://www.php.net/manual/en/configuration.changes.php).

    Thanks,

    Amy
