  1. Bitnami Canvas LMS 1

    "Unable to create symbolic link"

    by Glen Byram on

    I'm trying to install bitnami-canvaslms-2017.03.11.12-0-linux-x64-installer.run in a VirtualBox vm under Ubuntu 16.04 desktop (having previously given up trying to install on a gui-less server). Always a string of errors due to unable to create symbolic links. i have tried to install as root, as an admin, chmod +777 on installation folder, install to /opt, install to ~/... Always the same sad failure.

    Can't get it to run "out of the box"

    by Glen Byram on

    The pre-built VM always failed to serve pages. After 2 days for wading through obscure logs, I was unable to work out what was causing the "unauthorised" errors in the Ruby libraries. I don't think the code is written to be easily ported (unlike other genuine open source LMSs).

    The March 2017 update works as expected!

    by Tony Hetrick on

    The initial testing of the March 2017 build seems to have fixed some issues the in the previous builds. It installed without incident on Ubuntu 16.04.2 (with 4GB RAM). I put the email credentials in during the setup, and the system delivered the emails for new user registration. So far, the background jobs are working correctly, and the courses imported as expected.

    Great work bitnami

    by Muhammad Saifullah Khalid on

    Our school has purchase a license, but for test purposes we use bitnami stack of canvas.

    The only issue we have had so far is:

    It's not running automated tasks.

    Like if I import content in a course, it shows "Queued" in the status bar and never loads the content in the course.

    If anyone can help me on that, it would be awesome.

    Old Release, Updating is impossible

    by Jagan Mohan on

    The Bitnami Canvas LMS is supposed to be 'up to date', but it is already a year old. Significant releases have happened, but I am stuck with this ageing installation that is very hard to update.

    I don't know if Bitnami is a good idea to start with anymore. Probably it is worth to pay somebody to install any bitnami app on a server from scratch instead of installing it with one click, but regretting it forever.
