Downloading OSQA

Downloading OSQA

Official Release Downloads

The recommended method for acquiring OSQA is to download one of the official releases. These releases are more stable than the code available directly from the SVN trunk.

Latest Release

The latest release of OSQA is Fantasy Island (v.0.9.0) Beta-1.

Release Archive

You can browse all available official releases at the release archive.

Developer Downloads

To see the latest OSQA code, or to participate in OSQA development, you'll want to check out OSQA from our subversion repository at http://svn.osqa.net/svnroot/osqa/trunk

The trunk version of OSQA is not guaranteed to be stable. We make every attempt to ensure a reliable product, but trunk versions are considered "developer" builds. If you are looking to run a production server, we highly recommend using an official release.

    Instructions installing svn on Bluehost

    There are many subversion guides for bluehost with more detail. A basic approach:

    1. mkdir ~/package/src
    2. cd ~/package/src
    3. wget http://sqlite.org/sqlite-3.6.13.tar.gz
    4. wget http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/apache/apr/apr-util-1.3.9.tar.gz
    5. wget http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/apache/apr/apr-1.3.9.tar.gz
    6. wget http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/subversion-1.6.9.tar.gz
    7. wget http://www.webdav.org/neon/neon-0.29.3.tar.gz
    8. Build the packages as follows:

    Note: This will put packages in ~/package/bin, which you will need to add to your .bashrc as: PATH=$PATH:$HOME/package/bin

    #!/bin/sh
    cd sqlite-3.6.13/
    ./configure --prefix=$HOME/package --without-berlekey-db --with-apr=$HOME/package --with-apr-util=$HOME/package
    --with-neon=$HOME/package
    make clean
    make install
    cd ../apr-1.3.9
    ./configure --prefix=$HOME/package LDFLAGS="-L/lib64"
    make clean
    make install
    cd ../apr-util-1.3.9
    ./configure --prefix=$HOME/package --with-apr=$HOME/package LDFLAGS="-L/lib64"
    make clean
    make install
    cd ../neon-0.29.3
    ./configure --enable-shared --prefix=$HOME/package LDFLAGS="-L/lib64"
    make clean
    make install
    cd ../subversion-1.6.9
    ./configure --prefix=$HOME/package --without-berlekey-db --with-apr=$HOME/package --with-apr-util=$HOME/package
    --with-neon=$HOME/package --with-sqllite=$HOME/package --with-ssl LDFLAGS="-L/lib64"
    make clean
    make install
