Install LON-CAPA

LON-CAPA is based upon a lot of Open Source modules, so it's important to have the right environment on your computer. This is most easily done by installing on a dedicated machine while installing the operating system.

The configuring of LON-CAPA is part of the install process of the software. However, in case something needs to be altered, or isn't working, here is some information on configuring LON-CAPA.
