[[Category:Debian and Ubuntu]]
== Setting up Debian ==
This instructions assume a working Debian ("Edgy Eft") installation (or close approximation thereof).
== Install EPrints Dependencies ==
Install Apache and mod_perl:
root@debian$  apt-get install apach2-mpm-prefork libapache2-mod-perl2
Install MySQL:
root@debian$ apt-get install install mysql-server
Install perl dependencies:
root@debian$ apt-get install libxml-libxml-perl libunicode-string-perl \
  libterm-readkey-perl libmime-lite-perl libdbd-mysql-perl libxml-parser-perl.
== Auxiliary Packages ==
You need further packages for the seamless work of Eprints; these might or might not be installed on the system:
Packages for building Eprints:
root@debian$ apt-get install gzip tar unzip make lynx wget ncftp ftp
Programs for extracting content (from 3.3 onwards antiword is only used as a Word -> PDF converter so not strictly necessary):
root@debian$ apt-get install gs xpdf xv antiword elinks
Programs making pictures, formulas, etc.
root@debian$ apt-get install pdftk tetex-bin psutils imagemagick
== Configuring MySQL ==
It is strongly recommended that you set a root password in mysql:
$ mysqladmin -u root password <new password>
== Create an 'eprints' system user ==
root@debian$ adduser --system --home /opt/eprints3 --group eprints
Add the 'www-data' user to the 'eprints' group:
root@debian$ adduser www-data eprints
== Install EPrints ==
Download EPrints 3. Unpack and install the tarball:
$ tar xzvf eprints-3.x.y.tar.gz
$ cd eprints-3.x.y
$ ./configure --with-smtp-server=smtp.yourdomain
$ sudo ./install.pl
== Set up Apache2 ==
Add this line to <tt>/etc/apache2/sites-available/eprints</tt>
Include /opt/eprints3/cfg/apache.conf
and enable the site
$ sudo a2ensite eprints
(this leaves <tt>/etc/apache2/apache.conf</tt> untouched, making future Apache upgrades easier)
== Set up the indexer as a service ==
$ sudo ln -s /opt/eprints3/bin/epindexer /etc/init.d/epindexer
Make the indexer start automatically when the machine is rebooted:
$ sudo update-rc.d epindexer defaults 99 99
== Configure an archive ==
Follow the steps in the main EPrints documentation to configure an archive.
* [[Getting Started with EPrints 3]]
== Restarting Apache ==
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload
== Setting up your crontab ==
See [[Automating your maintenance]]
