These are basic instructions on how to compile and run XApps under Linux. It has been tested on Fedora Core 4, openSUSE 10.1, Debian 3.1, Ubuntu 7.10, Ubuntu 7.10 Server Edition, Ubuntu 8. Read More...

This article shows how you could connect to a virtual machine on Amazon cloud computing services.

Cloud computing provides the ability to use the resources you need in a very simple way and pay only for the resources being used. Just like electricity in your home, you flick the switch and you have light, or turn it off when you don’t need it. Power is at your fingertips and you choose when you access the power.

Amazon was the first company to bring cloud computing to the masses and these days they offer a wide range of web services based on the cloud. Morfik has been using cloud hosting from Amazon Web Services (AWS) for a few years now, and it has saved us a lot of time and money.

In a nutshell, Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) is a virtual server which can be commissioned online through a control panel or programmatically through SOAP-API.

In terms of Operating System there are a lot of choices or you can make and customise your own. For the purposes of this blog I’m going to show you how to setup a Fedora Linux virtual server, which is one of the standard options offered by Amazon. Read More..."'

In this article we’ll look at running a Morfik XApp as an Apache module on a Linux virtual machine on the Amazon cloud. After commissioning the server we used Putty for Windows to connect to the server and we got to the point where we made a secure connection to the server and logged in as the root user. Since we are going to deploy the XApps as an Apache module we need to make sure an Apache 2 web server is installed and running on the system.

To install the Apache web server we use the “yum” command. Yum is an automatic updater and package installer/uninstaller for systems using rpm packages. Read More...

When deploying a Morfik 2.x (M2) application, a Morfik developer has 2 target operating system options available: Windows and Linux. From what I've read in the Morfik discussion forums, it appears that Windows is the more popular choice. Nevertheless, Linux remains the premier OS for web servers due to its stability and cost (free). The Morfik staff has made available a deployment how-to for both Windows and Linux, but when I attempted my first Linux deployment, I ran into a few problems. It took me a couple days to figure it all out, and I hope you'll find this article helpful. This article explains, step by step, how to deploy your M2 app on Linux. But it also provides what I feel is other crucial information, including selecting a Linux hosting provider, Linux security, Firebird security and general maintenance. Read More...
