Step by step guide to getting EPrints installed on Fedora Core 4.

Please add bugs and comments at the end of this page.

!!Install Fedora Core 4

At the Installation Type step [[1]], choose Workstation.

At the Security Configuration step [[2]], tick Remote Login and Web server and disable SELinux (or set it to warn).

At the Package Installation Defaults step [[3]], select Customize software packages to be installed and add Web Server and MySQL database to the list.

!!Install Required Packages

If this is the first time yum has been run, import the GPG-KEYs for the Fedora RPM repositories:

@@root> rpm --import /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-4/*GPG-KEY*@@

If your eprints server connects to the Web via a proxy, set the http_proxy environment variable:

@@root> export http_proxy= @@

Use yum to install the Gnome DOM libraries:

@@root> yum install gdome2 gdome2-devel@@

.. the wvware Word document libraries:

@@root> yum install wv@@

.. and xpdf:

@@root> yum install xpdf@@

wvText (from wv) and pdftotext (from xpdf) are used by the EPrints for full text indexing.

!!Install Required Perl Modules

The majority of perl modules need by EPrints are already installed.

Install Unicode::String using yum:

@@root> yum install perl-Unicode-String@@

Install XML::GDOME from source:

@@root> wget @@

@@root> tar xzvf XML-GDOME-0.86.tar.gz@@

@@root> cd XML-GDOME-0.86/@@

@@root> perl Makefile.PL@@

@@root> make@@

@@root> make install@@

!!Add an "eprints" user and group

@@root> useradd eprints@@

!!Set up services

Make apache and mysql start automatically when the machine is rebooted:

@@root> /sbin/chkconfig mysqld on@@

@@root> /sbin/chkconfig httpd on@@

!!Install EPrints

@@root> wget @@

@@root> tar xzvf eprints-

@@root> cd eprints-

Find out the name of your outgoing SMTP (email) server.

@@root> ./configure --with-smtp-server smtp.yourdomain@@

@@root> ./

!!Set up apache

Edit the apache config:

@@root> vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf@@

Find the lines:

@@User apache@@

@@Group apache@@

and change them to:

@@User eprints@@

@@Group eprints@@

Add this line to the end of httpd.conf:

@@Include /opt/eprints2/cfg/apache.conf@@

!!Set up the indexer as a service

@@root> ln -s /opt/eprints2/bin/epindexer /etc/init.d/epindexer@@

@@root> chkconfig --add epindexer@@

Make the indexer start automatically when the machine is rebooted:

@@root> chkconfig epindexer on@@

!!Configure an archive

Start mysql:

@@root> service mysqld start@@

Follow the steps in the main EPrints documentation [[4]] to configure an archive.
