In general, koha-devel at nongnu.org may be a better list to ask, so we
don't bore all the users with development questions.

Symlink the koha-httpd.conf into /etc/apache2/sites-available, as you
correctly guessed.  That line had a ytpo in it and I failed to update
the README.txt to match the latest changes to the installer, so I've
just patched it.  Installer prepatches appear at
if you want to try them before the QA manager and Release Manager
review them.

That's a mistake: you need the installed copy of koha-httpd.conf,
which doesn't contain __KEYWORD__ tags.

That's the sort of error you'll get using the source copy instead of
the installed one.

Hope that helps,
