OpenLuup installation



  • Hi, I have been trying to install OpenLuup on MacOS but I am failing, so far.
    Is there a step-by-step instruction (for MacOS) to follow?

    After installing LuaRocks, luasec, luafilesystem and luasocket I then try to run lua5.1 openLuup_install.lua and then get the messages below.

    Any ideas and proposals are appreciated.

    Regards

  • Your best bet is to try brew



  • This I was going to suggest

    Brew rock in so many ways. Be patient, though, some of these things seem to take a long old time with very little indication of progress

  • Thanks, I will try the Homebrew 🙂
