There are about a dozen files on the LON-CAPA server systems which the system administrator may need to adjust.
The two most important configuration files are:
Current Reconfiguration Procedure
After making any configuration change, you will need to restart system services. The two most important system services on a LON-CAPA system are loncapa and httpd. Here are the commands for restarting the system services:
We recommend that a knowledgeable system administrator should perform any adjustments on a LON-CAPA server machine. Locations of these files are by default. Depending on your Linux distribution--RedHat, Mandrake, Debian, etc, the file paths may be elsewhere.
Configuration files that will have to be altered
LON-CAPA currently depends on the following list of configuration files. Note that loncapa.conf is automatically altered by the installation/upgrade scripts associated with the tarball-distribution (see the INSTALL and UPGRADE sections of this web-site). (Thus, the system administrator should not have to further adjust loncapa.conf from the terminal.)
Configuration files that do not have to be altered
The following configuration files are critical for the correct performance of a LON-CAPA server machine. Typically, these configuration files do not need to be adjusted by the system administrator.
Configuring Secondary Services
LON-CAPA does not provide integrated support for secondary services. The expectation is that knowledgeable system administrators will customize these secondary services for their institution.
We do, however, provide example configurations of services that you may want to deliver with LON-CAPA (i.e. Samba and AppleChooser).
