README for Evergreen 220.127.116.11 Installing prerequisites: ======================== Evergreen has a number of prerequisite packages that must be installed before you can successfully configure, compile, and install Evergreen. 1. Begin by installing the most recent version of OpenSRF (1.0 or later). You can download OpenSRF 1.0.7 from http://evergreen-ils.org/downloads/OpenSRF-1.0.7.tar.gz 2. On Debian and Ubuntu, the easiest way to install the rest of the prerequisites for Evergreen is to use the Makefile.install prerequisite installer. Issue the following commands as the root user to install prerequisites using the Makefile.install prerequisite installer, substituting "debian-etch", "debian-lenny", "ubuntu-hardy", or "ubuntu-intrepid" as matches your Linux distribution version for <osname> below: make -f Open-ILS/src/extras/Makefile.install <osname> Note: You may also be able to use "centos" to install the Evergreen prerequisites for CentOS 5 and RHEL 5, or "gentoo" for Gentoo - but these are less tested distributions. Your patches and suggestions for improvement are welcome! Configuration and compilation instructions: ========================================== For the time being, we are still installing everything in the /openils/ directory (with the exception of the Perl modules, which are installed into system directories). Issue the following commands to configure and build Evergreen: ./configure --prefix=/openils --sysconfdir=/openils/conf make Installation instructions: ========================= Once you have configured and compiled Evergreen, issue the following command as the root user to install Evergreen: make STAFF_CLIENT_BUILD_ID=rel_1_4_0_5 install This will install Evergreen, including example configuration files in /openils/conf/ that you can use as templates for your own configuration files. The STAFF_CLIENT_BUILD_ID variable stamps the server-side and client-side files for the staff client to ensure that they match. Change ownership of the Evergreen files: ======================================= All files in the /openils/ directory and subdirectories must be owned by the "opensrf" user. Issue the following command as the root user to change the ownership on the files: chown -R opensrf:opensrf /openils Configure the Apache Web server: =============================== Use the example configuration files in Open-ILS/examples/apache/ to configure your Web server for the Evergreen catalog, staff client, Web services, and administration interfaces. Configure OpenSRF for the Evergreen application: =============================================== There are a number of example OpenSRF configuration files in /openils/conf/ that you can use as a template for your Evergreen installation. cp /openils/conf/opensrf_core.xml.example /openils/conf/opensrf_core.xml cp /openils/conf/opensrf.xml.example /openils/conf/opensrf.xml When you installed OpenSRF, you will have created four Jabber users on two separate domains and edited the opensrf_core.xml file accordingly. Please refer back to the OpenSRF README and edit the Evergreen version of the opensrf_core.xml file using the same Jabber users and domains as you used while installing and testing OpenSRF. eg_db_config.pl, described in the following section, will set the database connection information in opensrf.xml for you. Creating the Evergreen database: =============================== PostgreSQL 8.2 will be installed on your system by the Makefile.install prerequisite installer if packages are available for your distribution, or you will have to compile PostgreSQL 8.2 from source and install it (which is beyond the scope of this document). Once the PostgreSQL 8.2 database server has been installed, you will need to create the database and add the appropriate languages and extensions to support Evergreen. Issue the following commands as the "postgres" user to set up a database called "evergreen". Note that the location of the PostgreSQL "contrib" packages may vary depending on your distribution: createdb -E UNICODE evergreen createlang plperl evergreen createlang plperlu evergreen createlang plpgsql evergreen psql -f /usr/share/postgresql/8.2/contrib/tablefunc.sql -d evergreen psql -f /usr/share/postgresql/8.2/contrib/tsearch2.sql -d evergreen psql -f /usr/share/postgresql/8.2/contrib/pgxml.sql -d evergreen Once you have created the Evergreen database, you need to create a PostgreSQL user to access the database. Issue the following command as the "postgres" user to create a new PostgreSQL user named "evergreen". When prompted, enter the new user's password and answer "yes" to make the new role a superuser: createuser -P evergreen Once you have created the Evergreen database, you also need to create the database schema and configure your configuration files to point at the database server. Issue the following command as root from inside the Evergreen source directory, replacing <user>, <password>, <hostname>, <port>, and <dbname> with the appropriate values for your PostgreSQL database: perl Open-ILS/src/support-scripts/eg_db_config.pl --update-config \ --service all --create-schema --create-bootstrap --create-offline \ --user <user> --password <password> --hostname <hostname> --port <port> \ --database <dbname> This will create the database schema and configure all of the services in your /openils/conf/opensrf.xml configuration file to point to that database. It also creates the configuration files required by the Evergreen cgi-bin administration scripts. Getting help: ============ Need help installing or using Evergreen?
