  • Apache 2 should be installed from source along with mod_perl 2. The PerlHeaderParserHandler change is no longer necessary
  • All packages are now available as native OS X apps, so fink is not required.

N.B. This document is currently a work in progress - you should be able to get by with the installation instructions above for the time being.



You will need the following applications installed in order to install EPrints:

  • expat
  • imagemagick
  • tetex
  • tar
  • unzip
  • wget

All of these applications are now available as native OS X applications, and may already be installed on your system. However, you may find it easier to install them using fink.

Installing via fink (optional)

If you do not already have fink installed, you should download it from the Fink project website. Once fink is installed, you need to ensure that you are running the latest version using the following command:

fink selfupdate-rsync

Once fink is installed and updated you can install all of the EPrints dependencies using the following commands:

fink install exoat
fink install imagemagick
fink install tetex
fink install tar
fink install unzip
fink install wget

Perl modules

There are a number of Perl modules which require installation before EPrints can be compiled.
