TikiLiveCD


There are several ways of trying Tiki CMS/Groupware on a CD which contains everything you need to boot your computer from CD, and let you go directly to using your own installation of Tiki.

The most updated one is "Slax Tiki Live CD" (see below), which can also be converted to an UsbTiki, if desired. There is also KnoppixTiki, even if it is much more outdated.

Slax-Tiki Live CD

A new version 0.5 including a Tiki 3.0 beta1 (March 3rd, 2009) is here. In addition, subversion is installed so it will be very easy to upgrade to any further version from within the Live CD itself through getting the proper branch from the repositories. See dev:Download for more details.


Bonus: See the video showing how it was upgraded from a previous TikiLiveCD!

Still todo:

  • Add link from tw installs to see the included videos and screencasts in the live CD


Comments:

  • You need to download the .iso file, and burn a CD with it through your favorite .iso burning application (K3b, Brasero, Nero, Easy CD Recorder, ...). Then, insert the recorded CD on the CD drive and ensure that your computer is able to boot from the CD before booting from the hard drive. You might need to access your BIOS settings to change boot sequence, if the TikiLiveCD does not start automatically.
  • Root user of the GNU/Linux system and its MySQL is:
    • user: root
      password: toor
  • Admin users on that tiki are:
    • user: root
      password: toor
    • user: admin
      password: nimda
      (following the same convention of users and passwords as Slax does. Nevertheless, firefox was saved remembering admin password for easiness of testing on the Live CD)
  • TikiTests can be recorded but not played back, due to missing packages on the base Slax 0.5x live CD where this TikiLiveCD is based upon.

KnoppixTiki

The first one was KnoppixTiki, but until somebody updates it, it's not recommended because it contains an old copy of Tiki (dated from 13. November 2004).

For more information, see KnoppixTiki
