Introduction to Coda

Installing the software for a Coda server is very similar to installing a Coda client, requiring two additional packages:

In addition to these packages, you will also need a spare partition to hold the files that your server will be making available to clients through the /coda directory.

You don't need to install the Coda client software on a Coda server unless you are also using that server as a desktop system and want to be able to access /coda from that system. For simplicity's sake, the examples in this article don't install a Coda client on the server.

After downloading these packages and the packages listed in the previous section of this article, you can install them (as the root user) using the following commands:

rpm -U lwp-1.8-1.i386.rpm
rpm -U rpc2-1.13-1.i386.rpm
rpc -U rvm-1.6-1.i386.rpm
rpm -U rvm-tools-1.6-1.i386.rpm
rpm -U coda-debug-server-5.3.19-1.i386.rpm

The next section explains how to configure and start a Coda server.
