We're trying to set up a new server (we just got a new one and we haven't
updated Webwork in a VERY long time).
Here's the message I received from my more knowledgable colleague in
Computer Science who has been trying to help me:
"I have spent most of the day today trying to get an installation of
webwork on a virtual machine. No luck. I tried installations on both
Centos 7 and Ubuntu 16.04. Both get to a point where the web server should
restart, but it doesn't. It looks like something's wrong with the Perl
modules, but I cannot figure it out.
Unfortunately, there appears to be no "step-by-step" installation document
any longer. To do an installation, you need to run an installer script
which does all the work for you.
This installer script worked fine when I ran it last summer, but now it is
choking. I looked on the web and see other people have similar problems,
but not exactly the one I'm having, which I cannot solve."
Thank you for you time.
