With the instructions for Xibo 1.8.0 being as clear as mud, I poked around and discovered this useful link. (I would have hoped that the official install guide would have been as understandable and helpful for Ubuntu/Lubuntu noobs, like myself.
Anyway after much cursing and googling I was sucessful in installing Docker (easy) Docker Composer (a btch) and running the Docker Xibo CMS package (double-btch) and eventually typing in http://localhost on my new Lubuntu-based Xibo Server on my VMHost, I got Xibo. ta-da!
Now what? If I have to bounce the server or update software that MIGHT require a server reboot - however remote a chance that might be, do I just reboot the server and Xibo will run automatically. I won’t have to run Docker, or will I?
I certainly hope 1.8 improves the use of DataSets, and doesn’t misbehave with Windows clients that don’t update properly?
