  1. Bitnami Canvas LMS 3

    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.

    Bitnami is decent

    by Mike Olsen on

    Easy one click install but redis and file hosting are not setup at all. This makes me want to just use someone like Instructure or Canvasrooms

    Easy and well-documented setup

    by Malthe Jørgensen on

    Very easy to get up and running. However, the configuration for Redis is incorrect, so OAuth will not work.

    Redis is set up to listen for connections at `/opt/bitnami/redis/var/run/redis.sock`, however the Rails-application looks for Redis on `localhost:6379` (even though it's set up differently in `config/redis.yml`).

    Create new course for teacher is not working.

    by sachin gill on

    The Bitnami Canvas LMS instance is showing "create new course" only for admin. I need to test how teacher can create course, also I need to understand student experience. Please advice.

    Canvas the best LMS

    by Juan Fernando Villa Hernández on

    Yes. I know. It's tricky, .It's a Hard Bone... but when you proper config run smooth. Don't Expect a turnkey solution with a installer. You need to config everything. Bitnami Just "install" the aplicattion but you make it rain.

    Best Regards LMSers
