This won't tell you everything you need to know, but I did a video that takes you from the Ubuntu command line through a complete Koha system, ready to go, in half an hour. See https://youtu.be/plzFqqy1iPs. I'm working on part 2, where I set up the library, item types, OPAC home page, etc., which I hope to have ready in time for the koha-US conference, starting on September 21st. Free registration if you attend online! See https://koha-us.org/.

As for koha-sites.conf, I'd recommend setting intraport to 8080 and opacport to 80. Then you can get to your staff interface as (assuming your IP address is and the catalog as You don't need an actual domain name for Koha, though it does make things easier.

NOTE: Some of you might be rather alarmed at my barebones approach to setting up Koha. No, my directions don't produce something pretty looking. My intended audience is libraries that don't have a lot of money to hire someone to design and set up their ILS. You'll end up with something that works, but look like something designed in somebody's basement.

And if you find any errors in my video, please tell me!

All right, but apart from sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

I'm from Romania, I'm a librarian and I want to install koha on the library computer. I tried using the instructions at https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Koha_on_ubuntu_-_packages*Install_Ubuntu__;Iw!!D7IIWT94AA!r8Im6_gLUsp-6SdXI2zDtDwSvLDj2no5iuW9d1zDfvYQB-zL1TCtaBcbg4EROE1Dlw$
but without success.

  On the computer i have ubuntu 20.04.3.

I want to install koha and then get in the system all the books in the library and all the students that come to the library. I want to get koha up and running individually on this local computer.

I don't have a system admin at the school.

The computer is connected to the internet.

Can somebody explain to me how i configure /etc/koha/koha-sites.conf? 
Also, what is the difference between web install and IP install. What would be best form me? I don't know about domain names and INTRAPORT AND OPACPORT...
