Which linux distribution do you suggest?


I’d like to know if you suggest a linux distribution for installing kaltura commmunity ?

I think at this time you are proposing RPM (https://github.com/kaltura/platform-install-packages/blob/master/doc/install-kaltura-redhat-based.md) and deb (https://github.com/kaltura/platform-install-packages/blob/master/doc/install-kaltura-deb-based.md)

Do you have more issues/questions/problems on a distribution, on which ?

Best regards,

Hi Fred,

We have a CI system which checks installs and upgrades on the following distros [all 64bit]:

  • CentOS 6
  • CentOS 7
  • Ubuntu 14.04 [LTS]

In addition, I also test on Debian Jesse.

So, any of these should be fine and of course, seeing how CentOS is basically RHEL, RHEL 6 and 7 should be just as good.

That explains why my results on this distro are not the same. I wasn’t using the LTS version when setting it up on AWS Cloud. I will have to play around with it on AWS using the same distro you mention here.


I have had the most success with CentOS 6 non-SSL installations.

Thank you for all your answers. What about the last Ubuntu LTS (16.04) ?

Support for 16.04 is work in progress. I hope to release a testing version by EOD.
Will update.


I’ve got an initial version working on Ubuntu Xenial.
To try it:
# wget http://installrepo.kaltura.org/repo/apt/debian-11.16.0-xenial/install_kaltura_all_in_1.sh
# chmod +x install_kaltura_all_in_1.sh
# ./install_kaltura_all_in_1.sh

The Analytics will not work and is a known issue I’ll work on but otherwise it should be good to use.
Please report any bugs you may come across.


Hi, how is it working about Ubuntu 16.04 ?

I recently released a test repo for 16.04, please see here:

I consider it to be beta so feedback is most welcomed.
Otherwise, you can use 14.04 which has been supported for years now.
