However we have worked very hard indeed to make a system that should just work if you install it from the packages. At the simplest level, you will need to:
If that doesn't help and your problem isn't covered by the Documentation or the manuals are unclear on some topic, please get in touch with the WACS developers:
Please understand that the developers can only offer advice and feedback on information that you send to them - you will have to do some of the investigation yourself. If you want the services of a WACS expert to login to your server for you, you will need to contact our commercial support provider, Bevtec Communications Ltd and arrange a support or by-the-hour consultancy contract with them. Other third party companies should also be able to offer support as all of the necessary code and documentation is freely available.
There are also some really cool ideas we have for WACS-based applications in the Web 2.0 space. One is presenting a model's sets as a virtual house where you have a house graphic and as you glide the mouse over each room, the sets of her in that room appear as a browsable swatch of photos. Hover over the kitchen and you see sets of her there, into the lounge and see sets there, the bedroom, the bathroom and so on. A similar idea could also be extended to a virtual wardrobe where you flick through her clothes and see each of the sets of her in that type of attire.
Other operating systems like *BSD and OpenSolaris can be supported if there is demand for them, particularly if it's either an offer to package as part of a distribution or asked for as part of a support contract. We have had earlier releases of WACS running on MacOS X, but are not currently keeping this up to date as we have no access to a suitable mac. If someone wishes to volunteer to be a maintainer for MacOS X, we'd be more than happy to see WACS return to the Macintosh platform. We'd quite like to see a Windows version, but do not really have the skills or time to make this a reality. If someone with experience of Perl, Apache and MySQL on Windows is prepared to take that project on, we'd be very happy to help and include the results in the WACS distribution archives.
