this is a question on the pre-requisites for running STACK on a rental cloud server.
A friend of mine [tm-tutor](https://demo-en.tm-tutor.de/) has installed moodle and STACK but can't run maxima locally (he says that would require to rent a root server).
So he thinks that he needs access to a maxima pool server in order to run STACK.
As I sort of pushed him to use STACK (and JSXGraph with Meclib), I am interested in the solution of that problem. So my questions are:
- Has anyone successfully got up and running a full blown STACK instance on a non-root cloud server?
- Should that be possible in principle or is a root server a must? Is it expected behaviour that he could install moodle and STACK but not maxima?
- Could he possibly get access to a maxima pool server? I am not really sure what that is, but his STACK installation seems to ask for such thing.
So I just want to see if there is any reaction here in the forum and then hand over for further discussion. Thanks for any advice.
