Problem after installing .deb packs
Hello, I've been trying to install Pandora since Monday, at first from source and yesterday with the .deb packs. The packs are really useful since they save great amounts of time and makes things waay easier.

Anyway, after dpkg all the packs; i edited the pandora_server.conf file and then went to the terminal to start the server. I typed /etc/init.d/pandora_server start and got the following

# /etc/init.d/pandora_server start

I am running this command as root and on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Is there enything else I need to do before I try running this? like change something else in pandora_server.conf or somewhere else?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Set your TimeZone as a shell variable, as an example, if your TimeZone is CET:

$ export TZ=CET

From Date::Manip documentation:
Date::Manip must be able to determine the timezone the user is in. It does this by looking in the following places:
       $Date::Manip::TZ (set with Date_Init or in
       the unix `date` command (if available)

Other timezones:

Thank you!!!

ive been waitin for an answer allll morning!!! Big Grin

now i have one last path to index.php is /usr/share/pandora-console/index.php

so, wat would be the correct URL to start the console?? is it: http://localhost/usr/share/pandora-console/index.php

Thanx again!!
No, this is an Apache issue, but I'm trying to explain:

Your Apache Server has to reach the pandora_console directory. As you're using Ubuntu, go to /etc/apache2/sites-available directory and create a new file pandora_console, containing, for example, and following that you have it at /usr/share/pandora-console/ something like this:

Alias /pandora_console "/usr/share/pandora_console"
<Directory "/usr/share/pandora_console">
Options MultiViews FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
allow from all

(You can also add logging if you put in a VirtualHost:

ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/pandora_console_error.log
LogLevel warn
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/pandora_console_access.log combined

Then, go to /etc/apache2/sites_enabled and link pandora_console:

[email protected]:/etc/apache2/sites-enabled# ln -s ../sites-available/pandora_console pandora_console

Then you'll see the link:

[email protected]:/etc/apache2/sites-enabled# ls -la
total 7

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 2008-11-06 19:14 yixue -> ../sites-available/yixue

Next, restart apache and access Pandora Console using http://localhost/pandora_console

Hope it helps.
