sudo aptitude install apache2 libapache2-mod-wsgi mysql-server python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libmysqlclient-dev libmemcached-dev

Create user

mkdir /srv/activities.sugarlabs.org
sudo adduser --home /srv/activities.sugarlabs.org/aslo aslo

To check out sources you need git and subversion.

sudo aptitude install git subversion

Checkout our fork.

git clone --recursive git://github.com/jbalogh/zamboni.git  /srv/activities.sugarlabs.org/zamboni

Fetch external dependencies:

cd /srv/activities.sugarlabs.org/zamboni
git clone --recursive git://github.com/jbalogh/zamboni-lib.git vendor

Set up server

Setup apache. Add followed lines to the end of VirtualHost section in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled file:

 <VirtualHost *:80>  #
   ServerName aslo1.rit.edu
   WSGIScriptAlias / /srv/activities.sugarlabs.org/zamboni/wsgi/zamboni.wsgi
   WSGIDaemonProcess zamboni processes=8 threads=1 
   WSGIProcessGroup zamboni
   Alias /media "/srv/activities.sugarlabs.org/zamboni/media"
   <location "/media/">
       SetHandler None
       Order deny,allow
       Allow from all
   </location>
   <Directory /srv/activities.sugarlabs.org/zamboni>
       Order deny,allow
       Allow from all
   </Directory>
#  <locationmatch "\.(jpg|gif|png)$">
#      SetHandler None
#  </locationmatch>
</virtualhost>

Setup mysql(you need to enter mysql root password for these commands).

mysqladmin -u root password remora
mysqladmin -u root -p create remora
mysql -u root -p

GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'remora'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'remora';
exit; 

To test server create /var/www/site/app/webroot/php.php:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Open http://a.sl.o/php in browser and make sure mysql is enabled.
