TurnKey FUDforum is a Live CD containing a complete preconfigured FUDforum system. Turnkey FUDforum is ideal for cloud deployment (Amazon EC2, VMWare, VirtualBox, etc). It is based on Turnkey Linux.

It contains:

  • A Linux server (Ubuntu);
  • Apache web server;
  • MySQL database; and
  • FUDforum, obviously.

It will automatically run "cron.php" every 5 minutes to allow users to conveniently schedule backups and other tasks from the Job Manager ACP. A sample mailing list catcher is also configures for users that want to use it as an e-mail archiving appliance.

Steps to build the ISO

Only for advanced users:

ssh root@
  • Prep the box:
apt-get update
apt-get install tklpatch
  • Download the LAMP Stack Appliance's ISO into the box (look for the latest on the Turnkey site):
wget http://www.turnkeylinux.org/download?file=turnkey-lamp-11.0rc-lucid-x86.iso
  • Download FUDforum's patch and uncompress:
wget -O fudforum.tar.gz http://www.turnkeylinux.org/files/attachments/fudforum.tar_2.gz
tar xvfz fudforum.tar.gz
  • Stop MySQL
/etc/init.d/mysql stop
  • Build the ISO
tklpatch turnkey-lamp-11.0rc-lucid-x86.iso  fudforum/
