I have just gone through all the fiddling involved in getting Ushahidi installed on a completely clean Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) install. In the process I wrote a large-ish document describing every command that needs to be run to install all pre-requisites and configure Apache and subsequently install an Ushahidi instance. It’s probably useful to others, even if they’re not using Ubuntu. So I was wondering whether people would be happy for me to create a new wiki page for it. Otherwise, I could always post it to my web site.
In the meantime, if anybody would like the instructions, it’s all in a Google Docs document, and I’m happy to share it with you if you give me a shout.

Update … I have created an orphan wiki page here: http://wiki.ushahidi.com/doku.php?id=how_to_install_ushahidi_on_ubuntu
So at least you can take a look at the instructions and decide whether they merit a link from the main ‘how to install’ page.1 June 2010 at 20:08 #2653
Thanks Stephen, I will follow your guide and let you know how it goes.
Much appreciated for taking the time to prepare and share this.6 June 2010 at 21:00 #2654
Excellent! I’m glad to hear that someone might already find it useful. Please let me know if all goes well. Otherwise, if it all goes pear-shaped, let me know that too. There were a few errors I came across whilst getting it working, so your symptoms may be familiar. And of course I would be keen to improve any thing that is not clear or correct any errors I made in the instructions.

Followed the steps. Apache is running but not parsing PHP on browser. Just blank page3 July 2010 at 08:18 #2657
Hi Moses … I only just spotted your note (I didn’t have email notifications enabled). Did you manage to work out what the problem was?21 September 2010 at 09:30 #2658
I’m a new user and I’ve signed up mainly to tell that this guide should be rewritten in a different way.
The commandCode:sudo tasksel install lamp-server
, in fact, has a well-known bug (if interested you may find it here) so that if you have problems with the lamp-server and try to remove it using tasksel, you will have to re-install the OS again (I’m talking about Ubuntu, but there are other known flaws in Debian as well) as you will miss all the libraries, GNOME, Ephiphany and loads of other stuff.
I had to re-install everything and I didn’t enjoy it .
I am trying to find another way to install Ushahidi onto Linux systems, I’ll keep you posted on that!

I’ve been following the Wiki instructions, and have run into the following problem when running this line of code:Code:gksudo gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/ushahidi-dev
I get the following error message:Code:(gksudo:3607): Gtk-warning **: cannot open display:

Daniele – There’s nothing wrong with installing using Tasksel. However the Ubuntu documentation (help.ubuntu.com/community/Tasksel) does say to never try using it to uninstall!
Otiose – Are you trying to do this over telnet/ssh?Code:gksudo gedit
will try to launch a graphical editor, which will fail if you’re connected remotely like that. Just edit the file using emacs or vi. For example:Code:sudo emacs /etc/apache2/sites-available/ushahidi-dev10 November 2011 at 03:55 #2662
Hey guys, I’m running into a bit of an issue as an Ubuntu novice. I’ve followed all the instructions to the letter using 10.04 Lucid Lynx, but when I get to the “git pull origin master” command it rejects it and I get “Permission denied (publickey). Fatal: The remote hung up unexpectedly”.
Any input as to what I might be doing wrong?24 November 2011 at 18:06 #2663
I think you may need to add your SSH Public Key to GitHub. Check out this link for more info: http://help.github.com/linux-set-up-git/3 December 2011 at 10:08 #2664

The steps worked fine for me. I’m on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot.
