SUSE Linux Server 10 shell script
https://docs.moodle.org/en/SUSE_Linux_Server_10 by Alex Inman contains a link to whitfieldschool.org which downloads a shell script. The script looks like it requires root priviledges to run. From a security point, this is worrying - is there anything that can be done to quarantine the page until someone can verify (or preferably ask Alex if the install can do without the script altogether)? --Ken Wilson 17:24, 7 January 2007 (CST)
Yes, the script does require root priviledges. That is included in the description document. Root priviledges are requrired to restart the firewall to set all access. It would be great if users possessed all of the skills to do each of the commands in the script themselves but the goal of this is to help users less familiar with Linux install a Linux distro from scratch using only defaults and get Moodle running in their environment. It is not the best scenario but users only need to be logged in as root while installing. ainman
Just FYI, the last link in the text under Starting Point leads to no where.
