Download EPrints Releases: http://files.eprints.org/view/type/release.html


Warning This feature requires EPrints version 3.2.1 or later

This page contains notes concerning installing version 3.2 on Win32-based platforms. There is still work to go on supporting EPrints on Win32.

Requirements

  • Microsoft Windows XP or later
  • Apache 2.0 or later
  • MySQL 5 or later
  • ModPerl 2.0 or later

Download EPrints Windows Installation Package (MSI)

Do not install this until ALL supporting software is in place and in the places outlined.

http://files.eprints.org/517/3/EPrints%2D3.2.1%2Drc%2D2.msi

Supporting Software

Apache

Download and install Apache 2.2 + OpenSSL (if needed) from http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi#apache22.

  • Change the installation directory to C:\Apache
  • After install manually add C:\Apache\bin to the windows path enviroment variable.

MySQL

Download and install MySQL from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/

  • Change default character set to Best support For Multilingualism

Perl

Download and install ActiveState Perl from http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads/

Perl Modules

Check you can write to the Perl library from the command prompt:

ppm area list
┌────────────┬──────┬──────────────────────┐
│ name       │ pkgs │ lib                  │
├────────────┼──────┼──────────────────────┤
│ (perl_lib) │  n/a │ C:/eprints//perl_lib │
│ (site)     │    2 │ C:/Perl/site/lib     │
│ (perl)     │  206 │ C:/Perl/lib          │
└────────────┴──────┴──────────────────────┘

If the "site" name is in brackets (as shown) you need to fix the folder permissions on C:/Perl/site so that your user can write to it. (TODO: Windows expert can explain why this breaks?)

Add the uwinnipeg repository to PPM:

  • Start the "Perl Package Manager" (ActiveState Perl start menu)
  • Edit → Preferences
  • Under the Repositories tab add the University of Winnipeg repository from the suggested list.
  • Click Ok then close PPM

Install mod_perl from the command prompt:

  • ppm install mod_perl
  • When asked, set the Apache modules directory to C:/Apache/modules

Install DBD::mysql from the command prompt:

  • ppm install DBD-mysql

Install XML::LibXML from the command prompt:

  • ppm install XML-LibXML

Configuration

Edit the Apache configuration file C:\Apache\conf\httpd.conf and add below the last LoadModule line:

LoadFile C:/perl/bin/perl510.dll
LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so

And at the end of the file:

Include C:/eprints/cfg/apache.conf
