Cloud OS eyeOS is a Open Source Free Cloud Based Operating System. It can be installed on your local hard disk in very easy steps. In a previous article, we wrote the details of Cloud OS.
In order to be able to install Cloud OS eyeOS, your PC or Mac needs to be configured like a server so that it can run Apache Server and LAMP. The easiest way is to install XAMPP for Windows PC and MAMP for Mac for running these. You can follow this tutorial on how to install WordPress on local hard disk using XAMPP. If you are following that tutorial to install XAMPP, do up to the sentence “Now click on phpMyAdmin in the left column under Tools. We have placed the cursor over the option in above screen shot.” in that tutorial.

After creation, forget it. Note that, we have not used and password as it is on your local hard disk. Now, go to :
(your drive where is XAMPP or MAMP)xampphtdocs
and create a folder named eyeos and paste all the contents of downloaded archive (look at 1 above). So, your Cloud OS eyeOS’s README file is just inside the eyeos folder :
Close the window. Open the browser.

I,would like to know whether the above steps are same for the Wamp server also?
Almost same. WAMP or any software like XAMPP basically giving you AMP on Windows – Apache, MySQL and PHP. We need these three. For online server we will always need LAMP – Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
I was trying to install eyeos ,after the configuration part igot the below error:
Unable to select databse: Access denied for user ”@’localhost’ to database ‘eyeos’
so what should i do..?
plz rply asap
This probably error 1044 or error 1045. These are the possibilities :
1. The username and password combination for the database name ‘eyeos’ (of MySQL or MySQL management software PHPMyAdmin) is wrong or database name ‘eyeos’does not exists.
2. The OS also is a factor. All instructions is usually written for Red Hat or Cent OS. For Ubuntu the troubleshooting is different.
It is not possible to answer in one line without knowing whether you have root access, what the OS is etc. Try to create a new database with different name, username and password. Make sure while creating the database you are allowing all privileges.
In other words, there is a problem with setup of your Database and its permission. Follow the database creation process as described here if you are using cPanel – http://thecustomizewindows.com/2011/08/install-wordpress-on-free-web-server-helio-host-step-by-step-guide/
Or if you are using shell, follow the database creation process as described here – http://thecustomizewindows.com/2012/01/install-wordpress-on-rackspace-cloud-server-step-by-step-guide/
JUST GIVE mysql root NAME AS : ROOT IN SECOND STEP OF INSTALLATION
HOPE IT WILL WORK

After installation i got a white screen on which “There is an error in this eyeOS installation, please contact the system administrator” only this much is written.
It’s amazing in support of me to have a site, which is useful in favor of my knowledge. thanks admin
Ahaa, its good dialogue about this paragraph at this place at this webpage,
I have read all that, so now me also commenting here.
Which version and on which OS ?
me too. in windows 7
Use one back version.
Go to Github and search for the old versions. Officially there is no more Free version. There is enough chance they changed few codes for the last one to non working. They basically deleted all the official old versions.
