Installation of Linfo

Create a directory named webapps

mkdir -p /usr/share/webapps/

Now get the current release of Linfo.

cd /usr/share/webapps/ wget

Unpack the archive in the current location and remove the archive afterwards.

tar -xzf linfo-2.0.3.tar.gz && rm linfo-2.0.3.tar.gz && mv linfo-2.0.3 linfo

A is needed to run Linfo. The fastest way is to make a copy of the template file.

cp linfo/ linfo/

Create a symlink that point to the webserver directory.

ln -s /usr/share/webapps/linfo/ /var/www/localhost/htdocs/linfo

chmod -R 777 /usr/share/webapps/
