What is your platform? Remember you have to require "luarocks.require" first before LuaRocks can find modules, maybe that's why your requires were not working. LuaRocks is still the easiest way to install Orbit (and its dependencies).

To run Orbit applications via the "orbit" script you need Xavante installed, too (again, easier with LuaRocks).

For Apache, all Orbit applications are WSAPI applications, so the same instructions apply (at, you need to install WSAPI, then put a #! line in your application's entry script pointing to wsapi.cgi, then cooy it to some path in your Apache install where you can run CGI scripts.

Hey all,

I'm trying to get orbit working, having 0 luck.

Luarocks seems to have screwed it up, requires are no longer found, even though it is meant to support rocks.
The manual configure+make+make install  method has a bad configure file.... had to fix that

Finally got around all that by modifying some files, and making a symlink in my path from lua51 to lua5.1

Now it can't find xavante....
And I have no idea how to get it working with apache

Can the author(s) please fix it up, and write some installation docs?

At least could someone please post up a simple guide to getting it working with apache. I'm no apache pro either...
