00:41 Technicus Hello . . .
00:41 wizzyrea hi
00:41 wahanui que tal, wizzyrea
00:43 Technicus Can Koha can be use to maintain an inventory of music cd's?
00:43 wizzyrea sure
00:43 wizzyrea might be overkill, but certainly it could be used
00:43 Technicus How do people access the catalog?
00:44 wizzyrea over the internet, it's a web page.
00:45 Technicus Would it be useful for a cd retailer who wants customers to be able to view the store inventory?
00:45 Technicus Or is it too much?
00:45 wizzyrea hmm
00:46 wizzyrea so I'm to understand that currently you keep no electronic inventory?
00:46 wizzyrea in your store?
00:46 Technicus It is all book and paper.
00:47 Technicus It is not my store.
00:47 wizzyrea koha is for managing libraries, who don't usually do much "selling" but lots of "lending"
00:47 wizzyrea "the" store then :)
00:48 wizzyrea yes, I think it could be used that way. You run into the usual complications of keeping your inventory up to date
00:48 wizzyrea i.e. you sell something, it's up to you to remove it from the catalog
00:48 wizzyrea that wouldn't happen automatically
00:49 wizzyrea maybe something more like
00:49 Technicus Is it possible to configure it so that it could happen automatically?
00:50 Technicus And is it possible to set it up that the store owner can scan the bar code on the cd and reach out to the internet and get disk information?
00:51 wizzyrea I think theoretically the answer to all of your questions is yes, but I also think that koha is not quite the tool you want
00:52 Technicus Do you have any alternative suggestions?
00:52 wizzyrea
00:52 wizzyrea is a point of sale system
00:52 Technicus O yeah I missed that post . . .
00:52 wizzyrea though that doesn't look like it has a public side
00:53 wizzyrea but I admit I haven't used it
00:53 wizzyrea are you wanting to do something like an online shopping cart/
00:54 wizzyrea
00:54 wizzyrea is more like that
00:55 wizzyrea too
00:55 Technicus The store owner does not want people to be able to purchase from the site.
00:55 wizzyrea ah k
00:55 wizzyrea just a list of inventory for the site
00:56 Technicus He just wants people to be able to see the inventory, and then maybe give them a special discount code then they come to the store.
00:56 Technicus Yes a list of inventory that can link people to more information about the music.

01:04 pianohacker hello again
01:04 lastnode is tehre an easy to list the koha instances that aer installed on a machine via koha-common on debian squeeze?
01:08 wizzyrea idk, I don't think koha is what you really want technicus
01:08 wizzyrea certainly I think it could work, but koha is for lending, not for selling

01:23 boboy good day!
01:24 boboy anyone know how to configure cron settings in debian installation using 3.4.4 package?
01:28 wizzyrea yea, there's a crontab.example file
01:28 wizzyrea oh with the package
01:28 wizzyrea sorry, ignore that
01:29 wizzyrea boboy, any of this help?[…]e_Debian_packages
01:29 boboy yup.. debian package
01:33 boboy i updated my installation using the package manager then found out that koha never indexes bibs so i suspected that something happened to my cron settings..
01:34 boboy newly added bibs are not visible in the opac not like before i upgrade

10:23 cait morning #koha
10:23 lastnode hi cait
10:23 cait hi lastnode :)
10:23 lastnode could i know the proper process
10:23 lastnode for backingup using koha-dump
10:23 lastnode ?
10:23 lastnode i did - koha-dump, koha-remove, koha-restore
10:23 lastnode (on the same system, to test)
10:26 lastnode and i ran into this bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6416
10:26 huginn Bug 6416: normal, P5, ---, robin, NEW , koha-remove fails when dropping user
10:31 cait lastnode: sorry, I have not been working with the packages so far
10:31 cait magnuse and eythian are the people you might want to ask about that
10:31 cait leaving a comment on the bug with what you did and what happened can perhaps also be good
10:32 lastnode cool
10:32 lastnode thank you
10:32 lastnode cait: is tehrea  non-package specific backup procedure?
10:32 cait hm
10:33 lastnode like before thedeb packages were put together
10:33 lastnode which files do i need to backup
10:33 cait really not an expert in this field - my coworkers deals with backups for me
10:33 lastnode ok
10:33 cait I think dumping the database regularly is what you want to do at least
10:33 lastnode ok
11:14 lastnode cait:[…]on_Debian_Squeeze do you know if this guide is current?
11:14 lastnode koha-sites.conf is never generated during install
11:14 cait the best guides are the install files packaged with koha
11:15 cait ah, this is for the packages
11:15 cait it should be quite accurate i think
11:15 rangi After install, edit /etc/koha/koha-sites.conf with details about your site. You may need to create this file.
11:15 cait it seems eythian is updating it often
11:15 rangi[…]ueeze#Quick_Start
11:17 lastnode yeah rangi
11:17 lastnode is tehre a guideline for filling out those values?
11:17 lastnode it would be good if it'slinked fromthere
11:17 lastnode if there is
11:17 cait there is a sample file I think
11:17 rangi its right there
11:17 rangi at that link
11:17 lastnode no, i mean i have no idae
11:17 lastnode yes im there
11:18 lastnode waht does intraport/prefix/suffix mean
11:18 lastnode -does
11:18 rangi what port do you want the intranet (staff side) on
11:18 lastnode gotcha
11:18 rangi prefix and suffix are just that
11:18 rangi do you want it to be
11:18 rangi intra-sitename.whatever
11:19 lastnode oh, right
11:19 rangi or sitename-intra.whatever
11:19 lastnode i will also need to add the intraport to /etc/apache2/ports.conf, right?
11:19 rangi leave the defaultsql out, unless you have some
11:19 rangi yes
11:19 rangi we always just run it port 80
11:20 lastnode so then how do you differentiate between staff adn OPAC
11:20 lastnode if it's teh same IP
11:20 rangi dns
11:20 rangi namebased virtualhosts
11:20 lastnode ok, i think ill use 8080 for now, no treally sure how to configure that
11:21 lastnode doesteh mysql password (root) have to be 'root' btw
11:21 rangi no
11:21 lastnode those settings are in?
11:21 rangi please dont ever set it to be that
11:21 lastnode yes, that's what i thought
11:22 rangi have you done this bit?
11:23 rangi less /usr/share/doc/koha-common/README.Debian
11:24 rangi what you can do
11:24 lastnode yes
11:25 rangi so you can either edit the file there
11:25 rangi and put in whatever username and password you want
11:25 rangi make sure that file is only root readable
11:26 rangi or, you can symlink the debian.cnf file in /etc/mysql to be koha-common.cnf file in that same dir
11:29 lastnode done, rangi
11:29 lastnode maybe that was my problem
11:29 lastnode ive created /etc/koha/koha-sites.conf
11:30 lastnode but i have to use --configfile== to show koha-create the path
11:30 lastnode is that theincorrect default path?
11:31 rangi naw, just pass it in anyway i think someone introduced a bug recently that means you always have to tell it the path
11:33 lastnode rangi: is tehre a guide to configuring vhosts
11:33 lastnode ?
11:34 rangi it'll do it all for you
11:34 rangi but yeah im sure there is on the apache website
11:34 rangi not really a koha thing
11:35 lastnode rangi: i dont plan on  having a domain onmy vps for a while
11:35 lastnode so im not sure how id access the admin without a different port
11:35 lastnode like what address would i go to
11:35 rangi then do it with a diff port :)
11:35 lastnode yeah
11:35 lastnode what i figured, i just wanted to know if i was being dumb
11:35 lastnode somehow
11:35 lastnode thanks
11:36 rangi if only you were looking at it, you can do it with /etc/hosts on ur server, and your client
11:40 lastnode rangi: just going to ask something i asked before yuou joined today
11:40 lastnode is the correct koha debian backup process
11:40 lastnode koha-dump
11:40 lastnode koha-remove and then koha-restore?
11:40 lastnode (i tried it on teh same isntall adn ran into[…]_bug.cgi?id=6416)
11:40 huginn Bug 6416: normal, P5, ---, robin, NEW , koha-remove fails when dropping user
11:40 lastnode apart from taht though, is that process correct?
11:41 rangi nope
11:41 rangi once youve removed it, you cant restore
11:42 rangi youd have to create
11:42 rangi then restore
11:42 lastnode right, i tried that too
11:42 lastnode ran into a ton of trouble
11:42 lastnode (prolyl due to me doing something noob)
11:42 lastnode but basically oncei have the tar.gz confil adn teh sql.gz db
11:42 lastnode im good, right
11:42 lastnode _everything_ is in that?
11:42 rangi you really only need the sql
11:42 rangi thats the db
11:43 rangi everything that matters is in there
11:43 lastnode ok
11:43 lastnode so basically even if i just dump the db using koha-dump
11:43 rangi you could set up another koha anywhere
11:43 lastnode then make a new koha install (even a differetnly nameed one?)
11:43 rangi yep
11:43 lastnode i can still import it using phpmyadmin?
11:43 lastnode ok
11:44 rangi you could load that file in, with koha-restore, or mysql .. or phpmyadmin if you must :_
11:44 lastnode right
11:44 lastnode so if there was an existing koha install running
11:44 lastnode and i dumped another backup (of another koha db entirely)
11:44 lastnode it would just run without a hiccup?
11:45 rangi you dumped it?
11:45 lastnode sorry, imported
11:45 rangi youd have to reindex in zebra
11:45 rangi but then yes
11:45 lastnode wright
11:46 lastnode so basically, back up the sql file like my life depends on it
11:46 lastnode and im good to go :)
11:46 lastnode thanks rangi!
11:46 lastnode rangi++
11:46 rangi yes
11:46 rangi i keep a weeks worth
11:46 rangi then a monthly one, for 6 months
11:47 rangi weeks worth of daily ones that is
11:47 lastnode i also plan onc loning my vps main disk image
11:47 cait rangi++
11:47 lastnode bc im messing around with the os itself
11:47 lastnode ill be hardening the system etc.
11:50 lastnode ok because of my lack of virtual hosts
11:50 lastnode and my use of two ports
11:50 lastnode my /etc/apache2/ports.conf file
11:50 lastnode has Listen 80 and Listen 8080
11:50 lastnode should it also have #Name VirtualHost *:80
11:50 lastnode and *:8080
11:51 lastnode bc atm im getting This is the default web page for this server, when I try to access OPAC
11:55 jcamins_away lastnode: you need to uncomment NameVirtualHost *:80
11:55 lastnode and add *:8080 too? jcamins_away
11:55 jcamins_away If you want to have the staff client on :8080, yes.
11:56 lastnode it's giving me an overlap on port 80
11:57 jcamins_away An overlap?
11:57 lastnode ok not anymore
11:57 lastnode but OPAC still wont load
11:57 lastnode staff loads fine on 8080
11:57 jcamins_away What URL are you using to access the OPAC?
11:58 lastnode
11:58 lastnode (it's ina VM)
11:58 jcamins_away Ah-ha. There's your problem.
11:59 jcamins_away When accessing by IP, you can only have one VirtualHost per port.
11:59 lastnode ok
11:59 lastnode but that's what i have
11:59 jcamins_away So you'll have to disable the default site or start using a name.
12:00 kmkale joined #koha
12:00 lastnode got it jcamins_away
12:00 jcamins_away Here's what I do (I do all my Koha work on VMs): I have subdomains configured in /etc/hosts on my *laptop* which point to the VMs.
12:01 lastnode jcamins++
12:01 lastnode jcamins_away: no,illneed to run it as an ip for a while
12:01 lastnode until it's stable enough for school to set dns from library.
12:01 lastnode i disabled default
12:01 lastnode works great now :)
12:01 lastnode thank yuou very much
12:01 jcamins_away Excellent! :)
12:01 jcamins_away You're very welcome.
12:01 lastnode timeto buy taht linode i guess
12:02 jcamins_away :)
12:03 lastnode jcamins_away: where is the public_html directory of teh koha install?
12:03 lastnode that's where id want to have my script send sql dumps to
12:03 lastnode so i can wget from my other server
12:04 Callender left #koha
12:04 jcamins_away There is none.
12:05 lastnode oh hrm
12:05 jcamins_away (by default)
12:05 lastnode so ill have to scp or something
12:06 francharb left #koha
12:06 jcamins_away I'd definitely recommend scp.
12:06 jcamins_away If you really want to use wget, you could set up a directory Alias in the koha-httpd.conf file.
12:07 lastnode gotcha
12:07 lastnode jcamins_away: im just gonna get a vps. is it cool if i bother you intermittently if i run into any issues?
12:07 lastnode (setting up koha there)
12:10 jcamins_away I'll only be here on-and-off, but, yeah, just shout if you've got a question.
12:32 lastnode jcamins_away: mailname of my system
12:32 lastnode doestn really matter atm right
12:32 lastnode yeah, i guess i can edit all taht later, oncei get a domain
12:32 lastnode *subdomain
12:33 jcamins_away Right.
12:34 jcamins_away Make sure that you are only listening on localhost.
12:34 jcamins_away (otherwise you could become a spam relay)
12:42 lastnode ill probably just shut it down for now
12:43 lastnode jcamins_away: is it safe to use DOMAIN="" if i donthaev one?
12:44 lastnode or shouldi use my hostname

13:22 jcamins_away If that connects, you have a problem.
13:22 lastnode jcamins_away: where will the log be of that
13:23 jcamins_away lastnode: run that command.
13:23 jcamins_away (but substitute the actual IP for ${IP_ADDRESS}
13:23 lastnode ohr ight
13:23 lastnode if there is no mailer listening there wont eb a log obviously
13:23 lastnode yeah i realise it wont connect
13:23 jcamins_away It _shouldn't_ connect.
13:23 lastnode i was just wondering if there was a system wide log for all connectiona ttempts
13:23 jcamins_away But check.
13:23 lastnode yeah, it doesnt
13:23 jcamins_away Good!
13:24 lastnode is there an easy way to test which ports my box IS listenign on

19:51 Emery hello
19:52 Emery I need help
19:53 jcamins_away Emery: no promises that I can provide it, but go ahead and ask your question.
19:53 Emery ok, thanks
19:54 Emery i have installed koha live cd (and i know almost nothing, some things in terminal code) it is version 3.2 and i want to upgrade it to the current version
19:54 jcamins_away Did you install the live cd onto your hard drive?
19:55 Emery yes
19:55 jcamins_away Good. :)
19:55 Emery i figured i should do that :)
19:56 jcamins_away You should be able to just download a more recent version, and install it over 3.2.
19:56 Emery that is the problem, i dont know how :) as i said i know nothing, i downloaded it and got the code for upgrading but i always breaks
19:56 Emery its,
19:57 Emery perl --prev-install-log / ....
19:57 Emery but i cant get it to work
19:57 jcamins_away Ah.
19:57 jcamins_away What's the problem you're running into?
19:57 Emery just a sec,  i have to turn it on
19:57 jcamins_away I never used the live cd, so I'm not sure how much help I can be.
19:58 Emery it is just koha pre installed on ubuntu 10.10
19:58 Emery it errors, no such file or directory
19:59 jcamins_away Emery: oh, in that case you have to find where you unzipped the file.
19:59 jcamins_away ;)
19:59 Emery but i didnot unzip it, it came pre installed, where is the default location?
19:59 Emery or is it talking about the one i downloaded, new version
20:00 jcamins_away Emery: you have to download a new version if you want to install it.
20:00 Emery yes, do i go to where i unziped the new version ?
20:01 jcamins_away Yes.
20:01 Emery ok, just hold on a minute
20:02 Emery im excited now :)
20:02 Emery i though noone was here
20:02 jcamins_away I'm only kind of here.
20:02 jcamins_away And I should caution you that I _never_ ues a "standard" install.
20:02 Emery well, that is better then not here :)
20:03 jcamins_away s/ues/use/
20:04 Emery i have found the make
20:04 Emery in my new download.
20:04 Emery now what do i type in terminal
20:04 Emery it says in manual
20:05 jcamins_away Yes.
20:05 Emery perl Makefile.PL --prev-install-log /path/to/koha-install-log
20:05 jcamins_away You have to replace /path/to/koha-install-log with the actual path.
20:05 Emery now, i know i have to change some things, ut what parts?
20:05 Emery thats it?
20:05 jcamins_away Yup.
20:06 Emery and the new path goes to the existing kohas install log
20:06 jcamins_away I have no idea where it might be, though.
20:06 Emery i will search
20:07 Emery and the new path goes to the existing kohas install log?
20:07 jcamins_away That is the path that you need to enter.
20:07 Emery ok
20:08 Emery it says no such file or directory but it is there, i think
20:08 Emery yes
20:08 Emery it is
20:08 jcamins_away I think perhaps you need to capitalize the PL?
20:08 Emery ok
20:09 Emery i think it is working
20:09 Emery dont go anywhere :)
20:15 Emery :d
20:15 Emery :D
20:15 Emery i think i did it :D
20:16 jcamins_away Good!
20:16 Emery Thanks for your help
20:16 Emery just to confirm,
20:16 Emery i did make file
20:16 Emery now i typed make
20:16 Emery it wrote alot of things on the screen, does that mean its working?
20:17 jcamins_away Yes it is.
20:17 jcamins_away Does, rather.
20:17 Emery i am doing make test - it says error 255
20:17 jcamins_away Does it give you more information than that?
20:18 Emery Result: FAIL
20:18 jcamins_away Right, but does it tell you what failed?
20:18 Emery Failed 2/26 tests
20:18 jcamins_away What tests?
20:18 jcamins_away Koha has *hundreds* of tests.
20:18 Emery just sec
20:19 Emery im not sure
20:19 Emery It says You planned 16 tests but ran 1
20:19 Emery exit status 255
20:19 jcamins_away Hm.
20:20 jcamins_away Try running sudo apt-get install libtemplate-perl
20:20 jcamins_away Then run make test again.
20:20 Callender left #koha
20:21 Emery is that bad?
20:21 jcamins_away It means that you have to figure out what your password is.
20:21 Emery i will find it
20:21 jcamins_away You'll need to rerun the makefile, and make sure you put the correct information in.
20:21 Emery ok
20:21 Emery i have to plug in laptop
20:21 Emery i will be back in a couple mins
20:22 Emery if i go away i will be back soon
20:22 Emery like 2 min
20:23 Emery i amm safe
20:23 Emery i will re run make file
20:23 Emery so i need the password for kohaadmin?
20:23 jcamins_away The database password.
20:24 Emery the mysql password?
20:24 jcamins_away Yes, the password for accessing MySQL.
20:24 Emery ok
20:25 Emery now, it says
20:25 Emery Database Server [localhost]
20:26 Emery does that in the [ ] what it was before?
20:26 jcamins_away I'm not sure.
20:26 jcamins_away I think that's just the default.
20:27 druthb left #koha
20:27 Emery ok
20:27 Emery now
20:27 Emery it says
20:27 druthb joined #koha
20:27 Emery enter the password for the user that owns the database
20:28 Emery kohaadmin owns the database
20:28 Emery do i enter kohaadmins password or the mysql password
20:29 jcamins_away You enter the password for kohaadmin to access MySQL.
20:29 jcamins_away Probably "katikoan" or something like that.
20:29 Emery opps, i went with kohaadmins password
20:29 Emery we will se if it works
20:32 Emery fail
20:32 Emery ok
20:32 Emery trying mysql password
20:34 Emery ok
20:34 Emery that failed as well
20:34 Emery HELP! :o
20:34 jcamins_away Emery: sorry, I have no idea how to login to your database.
20:34 Emery it has default passwords for kohalivecd
20:35 Emery i will get link to readme for you
20:35 indradg left #koha
20:36 Emery if you go here[…]/files/release-8/ down at the bottom it has the default passwords
20:36 jcamins_away It doesn't list the password you need.
20:37 Emery it doesn't?
20:37 jcamins_away Nope.
20:37 jcamins_away You need the kohaadmin password for mysql.
20:37 Emery hmm, i have to go in 2 min, if you think of anything or if anyone else on here knows, please email me at
20:38 jcamins_away You'd be better off sending a message to the mailing list.
20:38 Emery uhh....
20:38 jcamins_away mailing lists?
20:38 wahanui mailing lists are at[…]ha-mailing-lists/
20:38 jcamins_away ^^ there
20:39 Emery they said the root password for mysql is kohasqlpwd
20:39 jcamins_away You don't want the root password, though.
20:39 Emery :(
20:39 Emery what if i was the user root?
20:40 jcamins_away That would be a terrible idea.
20:40 Emery oh
20:40 jcamins_away I'm sure the developer of the live cd wouldn't do something so foolish.
20:40 jcamins_away :)
20:40 jcamins_away It's not the user that you use, it's the user that Koha uses.
20:41 Emery ok, well i gotta go :(   thanks for all your help
20:41 Emery bye :)
20:41 jcamins_away Good luck.
