hi guys

I'm trying to install an application called Iframely on our Amazon EC2 server. However, I would like to install the actual v.0.6.4 version. But I don't know what command to run and the Iframely website doesn't give me a clue either.

Any ideas how you would obtain it and run that particular version? I even tried using the whole Git hub repository and that doesn't seem to work either unless I'm typing something wrong.

Thanks for helping

Find out full version number of your package:
apt-cache show package
Install (note equal sign)
apt-get install package=0.6.4-1ubuntu1
You might need to downgrade dependencies/dependents on same command line if apt fails with package alone.
Probably you dont want old packages offering network service
