Where to host a tour on our servers

Post by barnabythebear » Thu Feb 13, 2020 4:49 pm

Hello all,

First post :)

I'm currently evaluating the demo version of pano2vr for our UK college. I have created a super-simple project with a single 360 and a few hotspots. What I can't seem to do is upload it to one of our virtual servers (https) and get a url that I can then view the project (html5) with in a browser.

All of our servers are running centos7 and I have uploaded the project to var/www/html/Output/index.html

Ultimately, what I want to do it use the project with an Oculus Go and also the embed in our Moodle VLE in an iframe.

Any help would be really appreciated :)

Thanks,

Nige.

This is an example:

<iframe src="http://360.haifischbar.de/panoramen/bei ... index.html" width=1050 height=500></iframe>


in your case it might be:
<iframe src="http://www.barnabyswebserver.com/html/Output/index.html" width=1050 height=500></iframe>

Have fun!

greetings from germany

Hello Chris,

Thank you for the response. That was what I had tried to use. My url is:

https://xxxxxxxxxxxxxx/html/output/index.html

but I get this message:

Not Found
The requested URL /html/output/index.html was not found on this server.

Just one idea:
Years ago, I had a problem like that, and the reason was simple:

One character in the url-link was written in capital letters and the link was set without the capital letter.

From that day on, I strictly avoid capital letters and do it the "easy" way and write and name all links and url-path without ANY capital letter

Hi Soulbrother,

Thank you for the tip! I have checked and there are no upper case letters in the path name.

Cheers,

Nige.

In which directory is the standard index.html of your website? Take this as reference and adjust / rebuild the example-url corresponding to that.

Hello Chris,

The actual location on the server is:

var/www/html/output/index.html

I have assumed that the reworded url would be:

xxxxxx.ac.uk/html/output/index.html

Thank you,

Nigel.

What i wanted to say is ...

when you open your website with your webbrowser, a standard index.html, default.html or similar page is displayed.

In which directory do you find this standard webpage?

And from this directory you have to rebuild the url to display the virtual tour.

Ecxample...

You find your default.html or index.html in var/www/html/default.html, call it in your browser by mywebside.co.uk/default.html
then you have to display the virtual with mywebserver.co.uk/output/index.html

Hiya Chris,

Thank you very much! It's working now. I had to place the output folder in our Moodle folder where the moodle index.php was.

Many thanks

Nige.
