Downloading Koha

Getting Started

LibLime Koha and LLEK are developed in Perl, with embedded Javascripts and HTML templates. Both applications use Debian as the operating system, the Apache HTTP server, and MySQL as the underlying relational database. When installing Debian, select MySQL as your RDBMS server – our download includes the database schema necessary to support version selected. Specific installation instructions are included in the download package.

You should also have root access to the server, you should have a reasonable level of comfort working with Linux at the command line level, and a general understanding of database structure will also help.

How LibLime can help:

The LibLime team is made up PMP-certified project managers, professional librarians (with academic, public, special, and archival backgrounds), ILS system administrators, trainers, data specialists, documentarians, programmers (Java, Perl, Javascript, HTML, etc), trainers, IT specialists, and library support analysts.

Hosting and Support:

• No need for server management or IT resources in the Library;
• Backups, upgrades, bug fixes, server management - all done by LibLime;
• Every Library enjoys multiple Koha instances – one each for production, testing and reporting. Libraries can train staff, try new features and run resource intensive reports without impacting the production environment;

Professionally-managed, milestone-based schedules which include :
• Installation.
• Application configuration (both at the administrative level and at the modular level).

• Creation of design specifications with our customers to map the requirements with existing Koha workflows;
• DBAs and system administrators who support the development team with hardware and database experience.
