Installation instructions

Quick and dirty install instructions; email for help.

export DIR=`pwd`/ntppool
git clone
cd ntppool
git submodule update --init

The easiest way to install Perl 5.16.x (if your system didn't come with this) is to use perlbrew:

curl -kL | bash
perlbrew install perl-5.16.1
perlbrew use perl-5.16.1

# Other dependencies
sudo port install libgeoip

# install a bazillion modules from CPAN, use -n to not test each module,
# this will take a while.
mkdir cpan
cpanm -L cpan < .modules

Setup the configuration file:

cp combust/combust.conf.sample combust.conf
edit combust.conf 
   # setup the database section with an "ntppool" database
   # add "ntppool" to the "sites = ... " list.
   # setup a [ntppool] section at the bottom

Configure mysql and the initial tables:

# Your MySQL server needs timezone data loaded, if it doesn't have it, run:
mysql_tzinfo_to_sql /usr/share/zoneinfo | mysql -u root mysql
mysqladmin -uroot create ntppool

$CBROOT/bin/cmysql ntppool < sql/tables.sql
$CBROOT/bin/cmysql ntppool < sql/zones.sql
$CBROOT/bin/database_update ntppool
$CBROOT/bin/database_update combust
$CBROOT/bin/database_update ntppool

Start the web server:

export CBROOT=$DIR/combust

make templates


Monitoring system

To setup a monitoring system in the 'monitors' table, run

./pool addmonitor v4

It will return an api key to be used with the ./monitor script.
