#REDIRECT [[Installing Eprints 3 on Fedora Core 12]]
Step by step guide to getting EPrints 3 installed on Fedora Core 6.
Please add bugs and comments at the end of this page.
==Install Fedora Core 6==
When setting up prior to install, select ''Web Server'' and ''Software Development''.  Also select ''Customize now'' and on the next screen click on ''Servers'' and ''MYSQL Database'', then click the ''Optional Packages'' button and tick everything.
On the first boot, when setting up the computer, set the Firewall and SELinux to ''Disabled''.
===Install Required Packages===
Use yum to install the Gnome DOM libraries:
root> yum install gdome2 gdome2-devel
.. the antiword Word document libraries:
root> yum install antiword
.. and xpdf:
root> yum install xpdf
antiword and pdftotext (from xpdf) are used by EPrints for full text indexing.
===Install Required Perl Modules===
The majority of perl modules needed by EPrints are already installed.
Install Unicode::String, MIME::Lite and XML::LibXML:
root> yum install perl-Unicode-String perl-MIME-Lite perl-XML-LibXML
Install Term::ReadKey with CPAN (if this is the first time you've run CPAN you will be asked to configure it):
root> cpan Term::ReadKey
Install XML::GDOME from source:
root> wget http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/cpan/authors/id/T/TJ/TJMATHER/XML-GDOME-0.86.tar.gz
root> tar xzvf XML-GDOME-0.86.tar.gz
root> cd XML-GDOME-0.86/
root> perl Makefile.PL
root> make
root> make install
===Set up services===
Make apache and mysql start automatically when the machine is rebooted:
root> /sbin/chkconfig mysqld on
root> /sbin/chkconfig httpd on
Start mysql:
root> service mysqld start
Set a root password (Eprints can set up the database for you if you have the root password):
root> mysqladmin -u root password <new password>
Also check if SELinux is either Permissive or Disabled:
root> getenforce
If getenforce gives Enforcing, then disable SELinux:
root> setenforce 0
===Add the Eprints User and Group===
Add the eprints user:
root> useradd -M -d /opt/eprints3 -s /sbin/nologin eprints
Add apache to the eprints group:
root> usermod -a -G eprints apache
==Install EPrints==
Download the Eprints tar.gz file
root> tar xzvf eprints3.x.x.x
root> cd eprints3.x.x.x/
Find out the name of your outgoing SMTP (email) server.
root> ./configure --with-smtp-server smtp.yourdomain
root> ./install.pl
===Add Eprints to Apache===
Include the Eprints configuration in Apache's config:
root> echo "Include /opt/eprints3/cfg/apache.conf" > /etc/httpd/conf.d/eprints3.conf
===Set up the indexer as a service===
root> ln -s /opt/eprints3/bin/epindexer /etc/init.d/epindexer
root> chkconfig --add epindexer
Make the indexer start automatically when the machine is rebooted:
root> chkconfig epindexer on
Start the indexer:
root> service epindexer start
===Configure a Repository===
Change to the eprints user:
root> su -s bin/sh eprints
eprints> cd /opt/eprints3
To start setting up a repository use epadmin:
eprints> bin/epadmin create
==(Re)Start the Web Server==
root> service httpd restart
