The Live-DVD is great for testing and demonstrating. A package installation
is better for production use. When you install packages, the password is
auto-magically created as part of the install process. Assuming your
instance name is library, the command typically used to figure out what the
password is before going into the web installation step is:
$ sudo xmlstarlet sel -t -v 'yazgfs/config/pass'
Just change 'library' to whatever you call your instance.
Step-by-step guides are nice, but with the tendency for people to
proliferate them all over the internet, this tends to lead towards a lot of
outdated guides all over the place. And this leads to people following
outdated instructions while trying to install current versions. This is
generally a bad thing. If these are Live-DVD instructions, I would recommend
you teaming with the person making the Live-DVD so that the instructions are
together with the product for which they are intended. This will limit
proliferation of older instructions.
As for your idea to limit the system user to only localhost is possible, but
you would also have to consider various networking configurations such as
proxies. Because of this complication, I don't foresee anyone spending time
on it, but you are always welcome to supply a patch to Koha.
And lastly, I in no way reflect the final word on anything. :)
