[EP-tech] Copy live EPrints to staging server



This is a good strategy if you have no modifications to core files (e.g. new plugins in the lib or perl_lib directories).  Bazaar packages also install above the local repository directory.

Hi!

Well, I assume that you don't need fresh data all the time, so database
could be imported once, and occasionally re-imported.

We have git initialized in ~/archives/ARCHIVE_NAME/ directory

In .gitignore
--
var/
documents/
html/
cfg/cfg.d/10_core.pl
cfg/cfg.d/20_baseurls.pl
cfg/cfg.d/database.pl


And those cfg.d files copied eg. 10_core.pl.dist etc..

So we can keep different environments for dev and prod.

Also, there is a central repository (bitbucket) and we are pushing and
pulling :)

We are still testing it so if someone has a tip please comment :)

Best,

Okay, so I can get as far as step 7 ? now, I?m running this from the
development tree (that I copied from live), rather than the installed

file in the development tree?

Thanks Adam ? step 11 is pretty much why I?m doing this JI did have a
dev build on an old Macbook but the VM wouldn?t restore itself on my new
Windows machine so, starting from scratch! (yay!)

1) install a fresh copy of EPrints and configure it to work on the dev
server (to make sure all prerequisites are ship-shape).  It'll make
things simpler if you use the same database name, username and password
as the live repository.  Test that you can raise it in a browser, log
in, create a record, etc.  There's a training video for this.

2) Dump the live database into the EPrint tree somewhere (perhaps
<eprints_root>/archives/<foo>/db_dump/<timestamped_filename>.mysqldump)

3) Create an tarball of the EPrints tree (tar cvzf
live_eprints<datestamp>.tar.gz <eprints_root>)

4) Copy the tarball to dev

5) tar xvzf the file to somewhere appropriate, check file permissions
for the apache user on dev

6) undump the database dump (cat filename | mysql -u username -p) --
easy if you have used the same username and password as all the
permissions are set up.  Still easy if you didn't and know how to create
users and set permissions in mysql.

7) edit the 10_core.pl file in the archive directory to use the URL of
the dev server.  Then run generate apacheconf (I think with the
--replace flag, but that's from memory).

8) Change your apache configuration to point to where you unpacked the
eprint tree.

9) restart apache.

10) Debug the above process and document it on the wiki.

11) Think about getting your repository into source control to make this
easier.

*Subject: *[EP-tech] Copy live EPrints to staging server

Hi folks,

I?m trying to bring our live EPrints install over to a staging server to
do some work on it, but I?m struggling to do this in an elegant way.
What?s the best approach? I tried bringing the archive files down and
repopulating the database; there are also a few core changes to our
install in Perl-Lib which need bringing down however most times I pull
all these across and restart apache it screws things over. I?m pretty
sure I need to tweak some config settings and possibly run a few things
from the command line but I was wondering if anyone could digest the
procedure for me or point me in the direction of one if it?s already
been written!

Cheers!

Andrew
