Abstract

The installation and initial configuration of an open-source software can be difficult for novice users because of a common lack of adequate manuals. To address this problem, we have proposed a method of automatically generating Web based installation manuals for open-source software by editing the log information recorded during the installation process by a skilled user. A lot of systems using open-source software require changes of configuration files. Actually, middleware systems such as application servers and database management systems, often exhibit the low performance under their default configuration files. Thus, the optimization of such systems by setting the optimal confirmation is essential for significant performance improvements. In this paper, we propose the extension of our previous method to the automatic generation of Web-based configuration manuals. We verify the effectiveness of our proposal through experiments.
