Ubooquity on campus

H. Truman 4 years ago updated 4 years ago 6

Hello, I just discovered Ubooquity. I have been using calibre. I wonder if Ubooquity can be deployed in a University environment to serve a population of 15 000 students if installed on a good server with a lot ram.

Can Ubooquity work for such a population or it is just for residential users..



Under review

It really depends on how many users are accessing the server at the same time.

Sorry I can't be more specific, you'll have to try.

I have never done load testing on Ubooquity, as it was primarily intended for home usage.

On this issue, the next version (still months away though) should fare better as it will use Jetty instead of NanoHTTPD as internal web server (Jetty is more robust).

The second problem you will have is if you want to create individual user accounts. Each account has to be created and managed manually. There is no way to register or reset your password without asking to an admin to do it.

(of course, for public document without user access restrictions, no problem)

Let me know if you do it !

Thanks Tom, I wonder if using apache reverse proxy would work.han

For example putting the following in httpd.conf

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/ubooquity/(.*) http://localhost:2202/$1 [proxy]
RewriteRule ^/ubooquity http://localhost:8080 [proxy]
SetEnv force-proxy-request-1.0 1
SetEnv proxy-nokeepalive 1

Just a try, not quite sure it will work.

It can work (other users are successfully using Apache reverse proxy with Ubooquity), but I never did it myself.

I found the following link in one of your old post about this topic.... I will give it a try and do some load testing.
