    Hi, I'm Jota, I'm a Bitnami Engineer. Thank you for taking the time to write the review. Those extensions are not included right now due to the large number of requirements they have but we will consider adding them in future versions. Regards, Jota

    Installer worked perfectly!

    by Tony Hetrick on

    Thanks for creating the installer for Open edX! I was able to install a test version in an Ubuntu 14.04 Docker container and then I installed a more permanent version directly on the VPS running Ubuntu 16.04.

    So far, the only issue I see are the links to edX Studio when running SSL. Since edX Studio does not run in SSL mode and the links to the studio reference https, Apache generate an ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR.

    Overall, great job on providing us with Open edX!
