Install Kaltura CE from source

Is there any way to install Kaltura CE from source, i.e. cloning repositories (not using the repositories)?


As you can see here, the Kaltura CE platform has many different dependencies. You may, of course, deploy each manually yourself and then manually edit all the needed config files. This is similar to doing LFS (Linux from Scratch) - very educational but time consuming.

Is there a particular reason why you’d like to do so?

Thank you for your prompt reply @jess
I was thinking in trying the “bleeding edge” version of Kaltura.

Hi @Cano,

Kaltura CE adheres to the same release schedule as its SaaS counterpart and it is a rather aggressive schedule (typically every fortnight). You can also test using the nightly repo (by replacing debian with debian-nightly or xenial with xenial-nightly in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/kaltura.list in the case of Debian/Ubuntuorlatestwithnightly` in /etc/yum.repos.d/kaltura.repo in the case of RPM.

However, if you do the latter (use nightly) be sure never to do so on Prod and do not submit bug reports.
