Bitnami ocPortal Module
Bitnami ocPortal Module is a freely distributed software project, a module that can be used on top of a Bitnami LAMP/WAMP/MAMP server, specially designed for the ocPortal application. It is supported on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
What is ocPortal?
ocPortal is an open source web-based software that supports many types of content (news/newsletters, galleries, etc.) - and integrating rich media and advertising into them. Community features include forums, Wiki, member blogs, chat rooms, content commenting and rating, theme wizard, newsletters, RSS and Atom feeds, polling, site stats and calendar.
Installing Bitnami ocPortal Module
Just like Bitnami ocPortal Stack, the Bitnami ocPortal Module product is distributed as native installers for the aforementioned operating systems, built using the BitRock InstallBuilder tool. To install ocPortal on top of your Bitnami LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) installation, you will have to first download the package that corresponds to your computer’s hardware architecture (64-bit or 32-bit), run it and follow the instructions displayed on the screen.
Virtualize ocPortal or run it on the cloud
Besides installing ocPortal on a personal computer, either standalone or on top of a LAMP server, you can also run it on the cloud with your own hosting platform or by using a pre-built cloud image for Windows Azure and Amazon EC2 cloud hosting providers, as well as to virtualize it, thanks to Bitnami’s virtual appliance for Oracle VirtualBox and VMware ESX/ESXi virtualization software, based on the latest LTS release of the Ubuntu Linux operating system.
The Bitnami ocPortal Stack
Bitnami also offers an all-in-one solution that greatly simplifies the installation and hosting of the ocPortal web-based application and its runtime dependencies on a desktop computer or laptop. You can download the Bitnami ocPortal Stack product right now from Softpedia, free of charge.
