02:08 AdamG Hi, I was wondering if someone could suggest resources for setting up a debian 10 box to host koha from my home for a small school library. I'm looking to develop a proof of concept before paying for hosting, and I'm no unix sysadmin
02:20 davidnind AdamC: Koha on Debian using https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]ki/Koha_on_Debian
02:20 davidnind If you don't have a machine available you could try using VirtualBox on a Windows machine, as long as you have a reasonable amount of memory
02:24 AdamG I have a reasonable desktop with an I5, 1TB of hard drive space, and maybe 8gb of RAM. Adding more ram is not a problem either. I know performance will be poor, but I'm not knowledgeable about setting up the firewall, static IP, etc
02:24 davidnind A lot to learn if you are less familiar with Linux + Web servers (Apache) +  Databases (MariaDb or MySQL) - there are some good tutorials around on getting a minimal Debian install running first, before starting on the Koha part
02:24 inlibro joined #koha
02:25 davidnind How to forge has some good tutorials from memory:[…]n-minimal-server/
02:26 davidnind 8GB should be okay - I can get a workable system (for testing) running fine with my laptop using VirtualBox - would work fine for a demonstration system
02:27 tuxayo AdamG: « I'm looking to develop a proof of concept before paying for hosting, and I'm no unix sysadmin» Proof of concept of hosting Koha or just proof of concept or using Koha?
02:28 AdamG thank you - that tutorial looks like a great start - I assume I'm installing the non graphical UI, correct?
02:28 tuxayo Yes non UI
02:28 tuxayo That's how it would be for a server
02:29 AdamG The proof of concept is for both - setting up the library catalog, configuring koha, and letting remote users search the catalog database from their PC
02:29 tuxayo «before paying for hosting» Before paying a generic server hosting and hosting it yourself there? Or before paying a Koha support company to manage the hosting? (whether it's on your server or not)
02:29 davidnind linode has some good tutorials as well, particularly for hardening your server if it is eventually going to end up on the internet
02:30 tuxayo AdamG: So actually your not searching a proof of concept to hosting Koha as in a sysadmin sense right?
02:31 tuxayo davidnind: Would the Koha DevBox do then?
02:32 davidnind tuxayo: I've never manged to get DevBox working, so I've used Koha Testing Docker - have not managed to get that working on Windows though :-(
02:33 AdamG So, my 14yo son wants to set this up for his school who has no budget for it. instead of him waiting for them to a) understand the difference between locally hosted (a PC in the corner of the library configured with the school's router), self hosted, (eg digital ocean) or fully managed hosting (a surprising amount of money) Iwanted to get him up and running with the software and then show it off.
02:33 tuxayo davidnind: Oh, I can help with both it you need :). Note that Lisette recently used Koha Testing Docker on Windows
02:34 davidnind another option is to use one of the demo installations provided by some of the support providers -  go for 20.05, generally reset regularly
02:34 tuxayo I bet most people not sysadmins have way more chance trying a Koha DevBox than Debian install + Koha install
02:34 tuxayo davidnind++
02:37 tuxayo Yes the demo installation for you AdamG are the best option if your tests can be done quickly enough to not be annoyed by the data being reset from time to time (because it's a demo)
02:39 AdamG would he be able to learn how to configure koha as an admin, enter books into the catalog, test printing barcode labels, etc?
02:39 tuxayo Maybe even better. The sandboxes (it's made to test patches), it turn out that the ones of PTFS-E (a support company involved in the community) have a lifespan of at least 15 days
02:40 davidnind some useful resources for Koha itself - and (and follow ByWater Solutions Twitter and YouTube as they have so many great tutorials)
02:41 davidnind tuxayo: I'm happy with Koha Testing Docker on Ubuntu, but thanks anyway (next time I rebuild I'll try KTD on Windows and see if I have better luck)
02:41 tuxayo oops forgot the link for the sandboxes:
02:42 tuxayo davidnind: I'm happy that you can use Linux instead of Windows to work on Koha ;)
02:42 AdamG This is great; you've given me l/ him lots to read and get familiar with. thank you
02:43 AdamG I'm more of a windows guy, but I understand it adds much more overhead
02:43 bigbrovar joined #koha
02:44 davidnind AdamG: if you get stuck, then ask on IRC or the general mailing list - IRC depends who is around, often more active for US and European times
02:44 AdamG One final question - when adding books to the catalog, will he need to manually type all of the metadata (author, title, etc) or is there a public database that he can search by ISDN to populate this information in Koha?
02:46 tuxayo If you use MARC21 you can for example do a search at the US library of congress to get metadata. If you user UNIMARC there is the french national library
02:46 davidnind You can copy catlaogue rather than catalogue from scratch, for example from Library of Congress - depends on the type of items you have
02:47 tuxayo And you can add other Z39.50 or SRU servers from other countries, type of item depending on what you need.
02:47 AdamG super; those are good keywords for me to research. Thanks again. ..
02:49 davidnind AdamG: From the manual (although this is the dev version)[…]ml#adding-records
02:50 tuxayo davidnind: they left ^^"
02:50 davidnind tuxayo++
02:51 tuxayo For the record, my WIP message was:
02:51 tuxayo This is a more of a general question for other libraries like your in your country.
02:51 tuxayo The Koha part was the fact it compatible with Z39.50 and SRU which are popular standards for communicating with a server that provides autority and biblio records.
02:51 tuxayo I case they come back I'll copy :P

22:18 lukeG1 yes
22:18 oleonard When you were testing my Bootstrap 4 branch were you using a Mac?
22:18 lukeG1 I was
22:19 oleonard Okay, me too. I think we're seeing the same thing with regard to input borders.
22:19 oleonard I haven't tested on a PC yet
22:19 oleonard My revised branch is an improvement I think but still not 100% consistent
22:19 lukeG1 Ahh, I have no PC's to test on, unfortunately :(
22:20 lukeG1 Ive meant to test again since you've made some corrections.
