New Debian and Ubuntu packages released

11:26 am Server, JPEG2000, New Release

We’ve just updated our IIPImage 0.9.9 server packages for the latest release of Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin. The packages now automatically install and configure the IIPImage server for use with Apache or Lighttpd. Packages are available for both 32 and 64 bit machines and should be compatible with both Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04. The build also includes Memcached support, which is automatically activated if this has been installed.

JPEG2000 enabled packages for both 32 and 64bit using the Kakadu JPEG2000 decoder are once again available from OldMapsOnline.

Additionally, we hope to soon have IIPImage officially included in Debian! The package overview is available on the main Debian ftp-master repository.


To use, first install the pre-requisite libraries:

% sudo apt-get install libfcgi0ldbl libjpeg8 libtiff4 zlib1g libstdc++6 libmemcached6

If you wish to run IIPImage via Apache, make sure this is installed together with the FCGI module:

% sudo apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-fastcgi

libapache2-mod-fastcgi is a non-free package in Debian, so make sure that non-free packages are included in your package source list.

Alternatively you can install Lighttpd:

% sudo apt-get install lighttpd

You may also wish to use IIPImage with Memcached. If you do, the IIPImage server will automatically use it if it is on the same machine.

% sudo apt-get install memcached

Memcached is a distributed system, so if you prefer to install on other machines, you can skip the installation and modify the IIPImage configuration settings to point to these other machines.

Finally install iipsv, the IIPImage server:

% sudo dpkg -i iipimage-server_0.9.9-0ubuntu12.04_amd64.deb

Your machine should now be set up with a running instance of IIPImage!

Configuration files for Apache and Lighttpd are in /etc/apache2/mods_available/ and /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/ respectively. The default parameters should give you a fully working version. Modify the parameters to tweak things. The log file is /var/log/iipsrv.log.
