Cool mojoPortal Linux Appliance by Jordi Massaguer Pla

Got a google alert this morning bringing my attention to this blog post by Jordi Massaguer Pla. Jordi is doing a lot of work making cool Linux appliances with Suse Studio and his latest one is a mojoPortal appliance. I've played around a little on Suse Studio myself but have been so busy I haven't finished any appliances yet, so I was glad to see the one Jordi has put together.

Its running mojoPortal using SQLite. You can download it from Jordi's post, boot it up in VMWare player or server and login with user=tux and password = linux

Suse Studio is an amazing tool, it allows you to build a custom linux installation with just the features and applications you want to include and then target your build for a VMWare appliance, installation media or live CD. And you do it all from a web browser.

Thanks a lot to Jordi for putting together this appliance!

Gravatar Joe Audette is the founder of the mojoPortal project and was the primary developer until February 2017.

I know if you lack of something... that's time, but it would be great if you could provide appliances with different configurations for us to try.

It might be a silly thing, but I know of some people (including me) that have struggled trying to get apache, mod_mono, mysql, mojoportal, etc... to work, in order just to try something quick.


Also, I don't know about the viability of this... but it would be awesome if it existed the same thing for Amazon webservices. For the developer, it's just great to sign up with them and know they are not going to spend time configuring all these things as they would be provided by the expert ;).


I know that takes a lot of time, and I don't even know if that would benefit your revenue in any way... but I really do think it could easily spread this incredible piece of software to more people. When I have the knowledge I'll try to do the same as Jordi, but right now I am not a bit sure about what I have is right configured, I don't even know if I'm going to get to run mojoportal here!(and that's how I got to this blog post).


Thanks a lot for all your work,
