    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!

    configuration

    by Sergül Aydöre on

    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.

    Thanks!
