Re: Creating eyeOS Cloud computing server
The motive of eyeOS
eyeOS is all about centering work and entertainment in a single place. eyeOS is about removing compatibility issues between applications and operating systems and taking your life everywhere.
The idea behind eyeOS is not to have an Operating System inside an Operating System, or a browser inside a browser. Instead, eyeOS is another step in the digital life era. The goals for eyeOS include:
* Being able to work from everywhere, regardless of whether or not you are using a full-featured, modern computer, a mobile gadget, or a completely obsolete PC.
* Sharing resources easily between different work centers at company, or working from different places and countries on the same projects.
* Always enjoying the same applications with the same open formats, and forgetting the usual compatibility problems between office suites and traditional operating systems.
* Being able to continue working if you have to leave your local computer or if it just crashes, without loosing data or time: Just log in to your eyeOS from another place and continue working.
Have a look at some screenshot for creating an account on a Public Server and the appearance of eyeOS:

How To eyeOS :
Log in into your Windows account
Open your browser and go to http://www.appservnetwork.com
Once there, download the latest version available (the one which uses PHP 5.x. You can download it from the front page.
Once the download finishes, double-click the installer and follow the instructions
When you'll be promted what to install, feel free to install all the packages. However, to install eyeOS, you only need Apache and PHP, so you can just install that two packages.
During the install you will have to provide a name for your server and admin e-mail. Note that the server name must be a single word (no spaces).
When the installer finishes, it will ask you what to launch. Mark only Start Apache.
Time to download eyeOS. Open your browser and navigate to http://www.eyeos.org/downloads. Download the latest eyeOS version in it's .zip version (If you decide to download the .tar.gz version it will still work, but you'll need a third party extractor to extract the package).
Uncompress the downloaded package so you will obtain a folder named eyeOS with 4 to 6 files and folders (depending on eyeOS version).
Open the File Explorer and go to YOUR_DRIVE_LETTER:\\AppServ\\www.
Move the eyeOS folder to YOUR_DRIVE_LETTER:\\AppServ\\www. Note that if the extractor has created another folder before the eyeOS folder, you will have to move that last one, the one which contains 4-6 files inside.
Open your browser and navigate to http://localhost/eyeOS/ and fill the required information to finish the installation!
From now, you can access your eyeOS server from http://localhost/eyeOS/ from your local computer, or from http://YOUR_IP/eyeOS/ from your private network or even from Internet (if you have your router configured to redirect the port 80 to your computer.
