LinuxFr.org

LinuxFr.org is a french web site speaking of Linux and Free Software.

This git repository is the rails application that run on LinuxFr.org.

Install

The following instructions will help you to install the Rails part of LinuxFr.org on a Debian box.

1) First install some Debian packages:

# aptitude install mysql-server mysql-client libmysql++-dev
# aptitude install build-essential openssl libreadline6 libreadline6-dev
# aptitude install curl git-core zlib1g zlib1g-dev libssl-dev libyaml-dev
# aptitude install libsqlite3-0 libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 libxml2-dev bison
# aptitude install libxslt-dev autoconf libc6-dev ncurses-dev automake libtool
# aptitude install imagemagick hunspell hunspell-fr subversion
# aptitude install openjdk-6-jdk

2) Configure the database:

# mysql -p -u root
<enter your root password for mysql>
> CREATE DATABASE linuxfr_rails;
> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON linuxfr_rails.* TO "linuxfr_rails"@"localhost";
> QUIT;
(return to user)

Statistics need time zone at SQL level. You'll need to population time_zone* tables.
# mysql_tzinfo_to_sql /usr/share/zoneinfo | mysql -p -u root mysql

3) Install and start redis:

$ wget "http://redis.googlecode.com/files/redis-2.4.2.tar.gz"
$ tar xzf redis-2.4.2.tar.gz
$ cd redis-2.4.2
$ make
(optional, takes about ten minutes, $ make test )
$ src/redis-server redis.conf

4) Install RVM (more details on https://rvm.beginrescueend.com/rvm/install/ ):

$ bash < <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm/master/binscripts/rvm-installer)

And follow the instructions.

5) Install Ruby with RVM:

$ rvm install 1.9.3
$ rvm use --default 1.9.3

6) Clone the repository, configure and install gems:

$ git clone git://github.com/nono/linuxfr.org.git
$ cd linuxfr.org
$ cp config/database.yml{.sample,}
$ cp config/secret.yml{.sample,}
$ gem install bundler rake
$ bundle install
$ rake db:setup
(if you're updating, you'll need an other step: redis-cli flushdb)

7) Let's run it:

$ bundle exec springboard -c config/elasticsearch
$ bundle exec rails server thin
$ x-www-browser http://127.0.0.1:3000/

8) Create an admin account:

  • Create an account
  • Get confirmation link in the console and confirm the account
  • Get password in the console
  • Give admin role to this account with mysql linuxfr_rails mysql> UPDATE accounts SET role='admin' WHERE login='xxxxxx';
  • Reload the page on the site, you should be admin.
