    Tried this with ubuntu 10.04, debian 5.0 but it does not work. Can you please give any hints as to what Octopussy version works with what debian/ubuntu version is tested to work?

    Thanks so much.

    I ran into this too.

    When you start the webserver manually (/etc/init.d/octopussy web-start) it complains about the missing server key – so I did this (per instructions):

    openssl genrsa > /etc/octopussy/server.key

    Then I did this:

    openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -sha1 -days 365 -key /etc/octopussy/server.key > /etc/octopussy/server.crt

    Then I did an /etc/init.d/octopussy web-start

    This brought it up, and it was running on https://localhost:8888

    The installation docs linked above helped nicely. Now to get logged in and start using it!
