I have been at this for about a week just trying to get thru the config process and after i finally think i got it down to the last step to pass, now im right back at square one and its not accepting my root password. So you know what i really hate to say this because i know that the devs at kaltura really have a great idea here. But enough is enough folks, there should be no reason any software should be so complicated to install.
I hate to say this because i work hard on my scripts as well but the difference is that i put all the complicated stuff in the background or part of the next phase after its installed, and i never expose the user to a configuration process that is so huge and can break at any step and then we start all over again. Why not split up the process so we dont have to keep doing configall, every time.
I get it ok, the software is suppose to be powerful, but whats the use of all that if it takes a server admin with years of experience to install it. If your reaching for the common man your missing your market because the common person could not install this.
The install needs to be web based.
Dont do all the complicated stuff at first, stick to building the db and get the thing installed.
Then once its installed then you can worry about mont and all the other dependentcies you need that goes with it. I dont even understand why you have to use all the special modules just to install it. I have written alot of software and none of it ever included so many special modules or ever asked for a root password. Why not just have it like all web based installs. A few questions, the db info, and boom done.
Then the next phase after logging into the admin panel would be the other stuff.
Give the user the satisfaction of getting it installed quickly. Then if there is more to do, that can be done after they get into the admin panel. But to have the whole process command line and all in one step pass fail is miserable and not the most efficient way to do an install.
Anyway i have a headache, i have waisted enough time with this, i am removing it now and i wont be back until i know you have redeveloped it either in sections to config or you have made it so that the common person can install it.
