Installation

Instructions assume a stock Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick box.

  1. Install exim as the MTA, mailman for lists and dovecot for IMAP and SMTP AUTH.

    # pre-requisites
    sudo adduser --system --home /var/exim --group exim
    sudo apt-get -y install openssl libssl-dev \
        libpcre3-dev libdb4.7-dev dovecot-imapd \
        mailman listadmin
    
    # build exim from source, not apt
    cd /var/build
    wget http://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/exim-4.72.tar.gz
    tar zxf exim-4.72.tar.gz
    cd exim-4.72
    cp src/EDITME Local/Makefile
    perl -i.bak -pe '
        s{^BIN_DIRECTORY.*}{BIN_DIRECTORY=/usr/local/bin};
        s{^CONFIGURE_FILE.*}{CONFIGURE_FILE=/etc/exim/configure};
        s{^EXIM_USER.*}{EXIM_USER=exim};
        s{^# EXIM_GROUP.*}{EXIM_GROUP=exim};
        s{^SPOOL_DIRECTORY.*}{SPOOL_DIRECTORY=/var/exim/spool};
        s{^# SUPPORT_MAILDIR.*}{SUPPORT_MAILDIR=yes};
        s{^EXIM_MONITOR.*}{# EXIM_MONITOR};
        s{^# AUTH_DOVECOT.*}{AUTH_DOVECOT=yes};
        s{^# SUPPORT_TLS.*}{SUPPORT_TLS=yes};

        s{^# LOG_FILE_PATH=/var.*}{LOG_FILE_PATH=/var/log/exim/%s};
        s{^SYSTEM_ALIASES_FILE.*}{SYSTEM_ALIASES_FILE=/etc/exim/aliases};
    ' Local/Makefile
    make
    sudo make install
    
  2. Install couchdb.

    sudo apt-get -y build-dep couchdb
    sudo apt-get -y install libicu-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev \
        libtool xulrunner-dev
    wget http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/ftp.apache.org//couchdb/1.0.1/apache-couchdb-1.0.1.tar.gz
    tar zxf apache-couchdb-1.0.1.tar.gz
    cd apache-couchdb-1.0.1
    xulrunner=$(echo /usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-*)
    ./configure --prefix= \
        --with-js-lib=${xulrunner}/lib \
        --with-js-include=${xulrunner}/include
    make
    sudo make install
    useradd -d /var/lib/couchdb couchdb
    chown -R couchdb: /var/lib/couchdb /var/log/couchdb
    chown -R root:couchdb /etc/couchdb
    chmod 664 /etc/couchdb/*.ini
    chmod 775 /etc/couchdb/*.d
    /etc/init.d/couchdb start
    update-rc.d couchdb defaults
    ls -d /usr/lib/xulrunner*.* > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/xulrunner.conf
    /sbin/ldconfig
    
  3. Install nginx for front-end proxying, mini_httpd for mailman CGI and Plack/Starman for the pubstandards.com site.

    sudo apt-get -y install nginx
    wget http://www.acme.com/software/mini_httpd/mini_httpd-1.19.tar.gz
    tar zxf mini_httpd-1.19.tar.gz
    cd mini_httpd-1.19
    curl https://gist.github.com/raw/747788/7d050734e8f606ccb878dc03d79cc47798f1f959/mini_httpd.patch | patch
    make
    sudo make install
    

Still TODO

  • document Plack/Starman
  • checking out config and website from github
  • init.d scripts for mini_httpd and plack
  • crontabs for updating the site information from Flickr/Upcoming
