Subject [jira] Commented: (ROL-1743) Roller will not install if WAR is not allowed to UNPACK
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2008 20:01:19 GMT


Michael Clovis commented on ROL-1743:

Additionally.. (maybe as install directions)

1. Create a directory that the tomcat user has permissions and access
   let' call it /usr/home/YOURNAME/roller_data

2. In this directory create a uploads, search-index, themes, and planetcache directory
3. copy the themes from apache-roller-4.0/apps/weblogger/web/themes to roller_data/themes
4. Create a file that has JDBC settings for the database and property
   for the mail server.
6. Also in the file set the full path to the uploads.dir, search.index.dir,
themes.dir and planet.aggregator.cache.dir. These will be the directories in /usr/home/YOURNAME/roller_data.
7. Create a file. You really only need to do this IF your JDBC settings
in are not the default. In that they probably are not (username,
password at least) you should make one. The JDBC settings should match
IF your permissions on the war and the directories are correct, I believe this should take
care of all the issues. 

Another way to handle these issues would be to start to address through code the number of
configuration options through properties files. Possibly through a GROOVY ConfigSlurper  or
a common interface for all projects. I did not tackle this as this seems to be needed to be
addressed by the leads of the sub-projects first.
