Use Koi to create a quicker than 5 minute install

  • Hi, I hope some devs read the forums here. I’m releasing a developer tool I hope you’ll find interesting:

    Koi is a website based download & unpacking tool that can get wordpress on your site in under 60 seconds. Long story short Koi gives all the benefit of using shell access but in a very user friendly way. It is designed specifically for big PHP software like wordpress.

    Since it takes nearly half an hour to upload an unpacked wordpress through FTP I would hope that a Koi like system would bring you closer to a consistent 5-minute install.

    Anyway, please try it out and tell me what you think (and please report any errors). I’ll be releasing the full source code including scripts to create & customize project downloads shortly.

    Demo:
    You can try out installing wordpress 2.6 with Koi right now: Download http://koi.fullvolume.co.uk/repos/wordpress/download.phps and save it as download.php (or anything.php really). Upload this file (about 90kb) to an empty folder on your website and view it in your browser.

    Downside:
    Koi is young and not properly released yet. The theory is sound (and accounts for safe mode & apache threads) but I need people like you to test it out on as many different servers as possible to make sure permission problems are not horrendous.
