That script is intended to install the components on a vanilla CentOS dev test installation as is described in the documentation, not on Ubuntu.  At the beginning of the document you will find:

First, download the clean CentOS LAMP stack from CentOS:


The content of the script are as follows and would need to be modified by you to fit your Ubuntu environment:


rm -rf /var/www/html

mv var/www/html /var/www/html

mysqladmin drop msspan -f

mysqladmin create msspan -f

mysql msspan < /var/www/html/SQL/msspan.sql

rm -rf var

cp /var/www/html/os/root.cron /var/spool/cron/root

service crond restart

Also as a side note I had lots of difficulties getting the php correct php libs and updates installed for Ubuntu in order to work well with the EXTJS package so we ended up utilizing CentOS as a base distri.  The canned repo updates for PHP in Ubuntu will not work as built.

So i should NOT use Ubunto?

I wouldn't recommend it as we won't be able to help you much without burning a bunch of time.  Stick with CentOS and we'll be able to support you much better on this forum.

Thanks but no thanks.

Hey, personal preference is personal preference : )

You can still leverage the PHP scripts and feel free to tweak on the required libs for EXTJS and get it working.  Have you also seen the PAN-Perl libs? Those have an install guide for Ubuntu and you can leverage those as CGI's and front end them with a web server.  It's all dependant on what you want to accomplish.

Good Luck!


i have looked at the php files





to much work 🙂  plus i am to lazey LOL

i will get CentOS
