Subject: [OpenGuides-Dev] OpenGuides Install on a "hosted" site
I have a domain which I would like to use OpenGuides on however it is a
hosted site and I have no ability to get CLI or compile modules. I have
started downloading the prereqs but am wondering if anyone has gotten
this to work yet?
You might try PAR-boiling an executable for wiki.cgi, if your hosting company can
accept executables. You need to do a full install of OpenGuides on a machine of
yours which is binary compatible with the platform it will be running on.
You will also need a database on the target machine; DBD::SQLite will probably
fit the bill as one requiring no install, but you might need to deliver some admin
scripts as PAR executables to get it all working.
I've not used PAR with OpenGuides, but I can't see any fundamental reason why
Let me know if you want to try this, as I am using PAR quite a bit with other projects.
