Special instructions for installing Rails on a blank Fedora 20

Notes on MariaDB 10.01

The instructions below need to be modified slightly for MariaDB 10.01.

  • When creating the database, rather than CHARACTER_SET="utf8" COLLATE="utf8_general_ci", use CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci
  • When creating the rails user, specify the host explicitly in the password: set password for rails@localhost = PASSWORD('rails'); (You may also need to set the password for rails as well.)**

Installing with MariaDB 5.5

yum install zlib zlib-devel zlib-static
yum groupinstall "Web Server"
yum install gcc

# can probably use bundler to do this without extra work.
#gem install hpricot oai will_paginate rmagick
#gem install -v 2.3.5 rails
# 1 hour

gem install bundler

# we need a database
yum install mysql
#yum install ruby-mysql
#ruby-mysql doesn't exist anymore

#create the fromthepage user
adduser fromthepage
# cd into the location you want FromThePage installed, probably /home/fromthepage
cd /home/fromthepage
#get the code
git clone "git://"
# edit the database.yml to change the development db to fromthepage_development and update the password appropriately
#  also had to comment out the "socket" line and add a "hostname" value
# WE ARE HERE (not sure the last worked)

cd fromthepage/config
vi database.yml

#  socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
  host: localhost

#load the schema definition into the database account. 
rake --trace db:migrate

# modify your httpd.conf to point at the fromthepage/public directory as its DocumentRoot
DocumentRoot "/home/fromthepage/fromthepage/public"

# Modify Directory stanza in httpd.conf location to match the DocumentRoot
<Directory "/home/fromthepage/fromthepage/public">

apachectl restart
