On a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (also successfully tested on 13.04):

    sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
    sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:ubuntugis/ppa
    sudo apt-get -qq update && sudo apt-get -qq upgrade
    sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.1-postgis postgresql-server-dev-9.1 python-dev git virtualenvwrapper
    sudo su postgres

Then as the postgres user:

    createuser -s -P osm

Enter the password osm twice.

    createdb -O osm maproulette

Then as you:

    psql -h localhost -U osm -d maproulette -f /usr/share/postgresql/9.1/contrib/postgis-2.0/postgis.sql         
    psql -h localhost -U osm -d maproulette -f /usr/share/postgresql/9.1/contrib/postgis-2.0/spatial_ref_sys.sql  

At this point you should spawn a new shell for the virtualenvwrapper scripts to be sourced.

Set up the virtual environment and activate it:

    mkvirtualenv maproulette
    workon maproulette

Clone the repo:

    git clone git://

Install the python requirements:

    cd maproulette-front/
    pip install -r requirements.txt

Generate a Flask application secret:

    python bin/

Generate the database tables:

    python maproulette/

And run the server:

    python runserver

At this point you should see:

     * Running on
     * Restarting with reloader

And you should have a MapRoulette instance at http://localhost:5000/
