I used the following software packages to set up my Opensim on windows.
- Webserver On Stick – for apache,php,mysql. I included the webserver so I could use OpenSim Web Interface (Redux).
- OpenSim Web Interface (Redux) – it allows grid citizens to create User Accounts to access the grid. Grid Owners can also manage all users for the grid. very light CMS system included.
- Secondlife client from Linden Labs
Probably the best thing about the way Ive done this is that I can run it from a memory stick which makes it easier to demonstrate and use when I’m not connected to a network on other peoples computers, thats a fairly common scenario in education, I can also leave them with a copy which is a nice bonus.
Unfortunately in Australia our isp’s offer internet packages that set limits on how much we can upload and download otherwise I would have this running all the time. Perhaps someone out there could help out, i would love to have a Wikiversity region connected to osgrid or something like that.
I might put a howto on a wiki if people end up asking lots of questions.
