Thanks for your message. I've been following the instructions at the
URL you just sent. I think I've done everything on that page and have a
running server at:|
I think I'm ready to set up courses, but I have no idea how to do so. The webpage at:
seems to have something to do with creating courses, but it doesn't say anything about populating MySQL databases. It seems like I need to make some tables in the webwork MySQL database for courses to work, but I don't see any instructions about doing so.
To initialize the database see:
http://devel.webwork.rochester.edu/twiki/bin/view/Webwork/InstallationManualV2pt2#Database_configuration on the page above.
then create the admin course as on this page: http://devel.webwork.rochester.edu/twiki/bin/view/Webwork/CourseAdministrationManual
You don't actually have to create the tables for a course by hand -- that is done automatically when you create a course. Only the admin course has to be created from the command line -- after that it is probably easier to use the web interface.
There is also a more detailed, step by step installation procedure at http://devel.webwork.rochester.edu/twiki/bin/view/Webwork/InstallationManualV2pt2forSuSE10pt1
-- this is meant specifically for the SuSE flavor of unix, but many of the steps are the same or similar on other unix flavors.
Hope this helps.
