it is a pretty old version ! when can we expect to receive the newer versions of openedx?
as it have some major bugs like learners(active) cant access link to demo course or any new course (published with correct dates and active and all learners are enrolled)
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!
Bitnami made open edx installation very easy. However, I am having struggle with customizing the website. How can I change "welcome to open Edx" to "welcome to my university"? It is probably very trivial but I am not very familiar with django files.
Installation with Bitnami is very simple. But, DNS/edx-studio is not working, when I have installed it over amazon ec2. I dint get that administration page, Can anybody help me???
Great stack, easy to install and get started testing. Perfect for educators and academic institutions.
Looking forward to an upgrade to Eucalyptus!
