If we choose to generate a random password for mysql at deployment time, how do we refer to it in the script for making the template?

If it is the first time make is run on a new ProxMox install after the dab has been installed, then after the make clean, you will have to run make and make clean again. This is because of a lot of dependancy warnings. The second time, the packages are already downloaded in the cache folder and so all dependancy warnings will be gone and the make proceeds flawlesly.

The created template must be moved to the cache folder before executing make clean otherwise it will be deleted.

The following dab.conf parameter is missing in the wiki

ManageUrl: http://__IPADDRESS__/

A list of usable variables like the __IPADDRESS__ must be included in the page.

A means to place additional Infopage URLs in the dab.conf could be useful.

In the example applications download, the joomla appliance joomla.conf file in


needs to replace it's first line:-

ServerAdmin webmaster@loalhost


ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost

~# apt-get install dab
