Hi,

I got the task to set up mahara for the students at our chair. so i am limited by the "rules" of our universitys computer center. So we thought about using our chairs vmware virtualization environment.

Sothere are some questions:

1. Are there any experiences with mahara and virtualisation?
2. If I get it right, MAHARA is a web-application using/connected to a database. So if I want to set it up, all I need is a working MYSQL-database and a working webserver for the frontend? Are there any more requirements?

Hi,

Mahara doesn't care about virtualisation - the whole idea of virtualisation is that it looks like it's running on its own server . So it should run just fine. We run Mahara in vservers all the time at Catalyst (vserver is a linux virtualisation solution).

Yes - Mahara is a database-driven webapp. Check out the installation instructions for the exact requirements
