    Pre Configured Joomla Install for Edugeek Members?

    Have been thinking about this for some time, and after seeing this

    http://www.joomlashack.com/joomlasha...0-seconds.html

    I have decided to create one for Edugeek members for free.

    What do you think? Would it be something you would find useful?

    Currently putting together a site with dummy conent and a few add-ons to start with.

    Live site here

    I'd love a free CMS

    As long as it could be hosted on Lancs servers :?:

    @SimpleSi: You can indeed host PHP-MySQL solutions on Lancs servers

    cheers for the comment guys.

    The plan is to first create a basic site with the kind of content items that a schools site would need plus menu structure in place. Plus a good template and some eye candy features like lightbox etc. Also some mods like document manager / calendar.

    This can then be used to create a site that just needs the content edited to be correct to the school.

    The only thing I would note is that you need to ensure that the system is secure and stays up to date with all patches, etc... as exploits and the like become known.

    In that respect running phpBB2 sites has been nothing short of a nightmare so I'd consider that side of things very carefully and make sure that anyone who signs up to use it has to accept security updates and announcements.

    This is true. The idea is to give people a way to setup their site easily and quickly. After that it will be the responsibility of the use to then keep their site upto date.

    Although I would keep the package upto date also

    Re: Pre Configured Joomla Install for Edugeek Members?

    I want one now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, I'm off to a Lancs Development Group Meeting on Monday where the issue of why we have to pay for a CMS when everything else is "free" should be on the agenda (if D_B is kind enough ) so at least I've got an alternative to go to if my efforts to get a change prove fruitless (as no doubt they will )

    regards

    Well, sign me up as interested...

    If you're up for it I have a subversion server space where you could develop and keep track of changes if you're up for it... It'd help me as I'm looking to develop a few mods (calendar, download manager, directory system) for use with this as well as a few other systems (eg: phpBB), etc...

    Your call but either way count me in.

    I have a setup ready for download now.

    The download contains a pre configured Ravenswood server so you can just unzip and run.

    Just PM for the download link.

    Look forward to any comments.
