Hi forum members,

As this is my first post in the OX forums, here is first a little info about my backround. I work in a small engineering firm and have "average" Linux user and installation experience and knowledge, mostly from (open)SUSE workstations, lesser on servers and nothing about LAMP, email and Collaborations setups

Although I first to install and setup a single OX7 Appsuite test server and test user on my home workstation running openSUSE 13.1, I think most of this might be generic for other Linux platforms as well and hope for helps to reach the target.


1) Is it possible to test the OX7 gui front end where also the server backend run?

The latest relevant installation guides for this platform seems to be OX6 on openSUSE 11 and on SLES11, beside the current official OX7 Appsuite guide on SLES11:

http://oxpedia.org/wiki/index.php?ti...e_Open-Xchange
http://oxpedia.org/wiki/index.php?ti...ide_for_SLES11

The current list of OX Appsuite repositories at
http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...OX:/appsuite:/

backend
documentconverter-api
frontend
nodejs
office-web
office

2) Should all these repos be added for the OX7 installation?

3) As I cannot find 'nodejs' for openSUSE 13.1 (latest is 12.3) I wonder what it is and if it neccessary?

4) Is also wonder what is the difference between 'office-web' and 'office'?
