EyeOS in ubuntu 9.10 Step by Step

eyeOS is a kind of operating system which works online, i.e. it manages files on the server and enables the user to upload, download and edit files. We use a Debian 4.0 system for this demonstration purpose.

This tutorial shows the step by step installation and configuration of an eyeOS application which is hosted on your own server.
We need to install PHP and Apache as a basic requirement
#apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-php5
Download eyeOS file 
#wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/eyeos/files/eyeos/1.0.1/eyeOS_1.0.1.tar.gz/download
Unpack the file 
#tar-xzvf eyeOS_1.0.1.tar.gz
change the directory to eyeOS directory 
#cd eyeOS_1.0.1
copy the eyeOS files to /var/www folder 
#cp * /var/www
Change the present directory as www
#cd /var/www
change the files inside the directory 
#chmod 777 * 

The actual installation process is accounted for by a php script. We need to execute this in our webbrowser. To do this we navigate to the server or localhost, if you are sitting on the machine. You should see a placeholder page created by the Apache webserver to notify you that the installation worked. Now go into the subfolder eyeOS by appending it to the path in the address bar, and navigate to the file install.php, e.g. http://yourserver/install.php.
 Now a welcome screen will popup ,and it is easy to setup
