Hello,

I am trying to set up a Zoomhub server on a VM running Ubuntu Server 14.04. After installing all the prerequisites (nodejs, redis-server, ansible, pip and passlib) and running ./zh install and ./zh bootstrap, I reach the end of the setup instructions, but the server is not exactly functional.

./zh run start starts the server on port 8000, and when I point a web browser at it I get the same page that is currently on zoomhub.net. Following the API, then, http://server:8000/v1/content?url=http://url/to/image.jpg should start an upload, but instead the server replies with "We cannot process your URL at this time. Please wait a few moments before trying again.", indicating uploading is disabled.

./zh setup asks me for a vault password that is not specified anywhere and it's not the root password or the password set up under credentials.

So at this point I'm stuck. I don't know how to enable upload functionality, and I don't know how to change other simple things like the server port. I assume they are covered by the ./zh setup command, but I don't have the vault password.

Any help would be appreciated.

Further information:

I figured out that the file config.coffee contains basic setup information, so I set ALLOW_NEW_CONTENT: true. This resulted in the message: Error: Content.createFromURL() not implemented yet w/out Redis.

I changed DATA_STORE: from 'files' to 'redis'. This resulted in a different message: Error: client is not defined.

So I am still stuck.

Leandro, 

Yes, sorry about that! I've responded to your question on the issue:


The bottom line is more development is necessary, and we'd love your help if you are interested!
