[EP-tech] Re: Installing Eprints 3.3.14 on CentOS7 uses wrong directory



Hi Adam,

Yes I have seen the video but it is very different for CentOS 7. I expected the installation to be in /opt/eprints3 as quite a bit of the instructions/documentation on the EPrints wiki refer to the installation home as being in /opt/eprints3 and give the impression that installation should be there.

Also, I had a bit of confusion over whether I should actually create the home directory for the eprints user as /opt/eprints3; I cannot recall seeing the user creating part in the video.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly despite big day for EPrints :). I will continue my setup with that as the home directory.


Best regards,
Kahena

Subject: Installing Eprints 3.3.14 on CentOS7 uses wrong directory 

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to install a test EPrints 3.3.14 to a VirtualBox guest CentOS 7 (CentOS Linux release 7.1.1503 (Core)) but I am having an issue. 

When I use yum to install EPrints it installs it to /usr/share/eprints rather than /opt/eprints3/.

Can anyone say what I may be doing wrong please?

I have used the following link as the primary guide:
http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Installing_EPrints_3_on_RedHat_Enterprise_5


My steps up to this point, from a minimal installation of CentOS7, are outlined below:
