[EP-tech] Installing under CentOS



Welcome to the fun Andrew - just looking at migrating ours to RHEL 7 (from 5).  Most of the dependencies were there or easily yummable except the perl-apache-dbi which took some swearing and searching for the extras library.
Other than that, fighting with SELinux is the main bug-bear - I recently amended the page at Brian's top link (my install method) to note how to resolve running mysql on a separate server (how I swore at that...).  Currently trying to un-nerf the bazaar link page which just currently gives a 'connection timed out' error...

Andrew,

Well don't be afraid to ask in this group.  There are a lot of people here that know a lot about the system and how to make it fly (and in the direction they want it to go as well).  Sometimes though it may take a bit for them to respond.  :)

Haha! Well, as someone who is only really just used to doing things in Ubuntu this is ALL alien to me. Give me a Windows .exe and I'm right at home! ;)

Andrew,

We don't use the RPM's at all... We've been using EPrints since 1.x and have become accustomed to just using the source tar.gz file by default.  Call us old school, but we've never moved over to using the RPMs.  :)

Thanks Brian,

That could be the ticket. I had been looking at the top link but I found a few instances where I was missing dependencies.

When you say you install from source, do you mean you get the .rpm file straight from eprints.org?

Andrew,
Just curios if you've seen this page: MailScanner has detected a possible fraud attempt from "na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com" claiming to be https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Installing_EPrints_3_on_RedHat_Enterprise_5<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwiki.eprints.org%2Fw%2FInstalling_EPrints_3_on_RedHat_Enterprise_5&data=01%7C01%7Cbdgregg%40pitt.edu%7C2fca371c49a94881fe8d08d3f6a30238%7C9ef9f489e0a04eeb87cc3a526112fd0d%7C1&sdata=IRoNYpnbe8H72k6ULq8p6or5iSNn4B4mOVo1IMJB%2BgE%3D&reserved=0> even though in the page it states "RedHat Enterprise/CentOS 7 (earlier versions may work)".
We tend to install from source and tend to follow this page (minus the GDOME): MailScanner has detected a possible fraud attempt from "na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com" claiming to be https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Required_software<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwiki.eprints.org%2Fw%2FRequired_software&data=01%7C01%7Cbdgregg%40pitt.edu%7C2fca371c49a94881fe8d08d3f6a30238%7C9ef9f489e0a04eeb87cc3a526112fd0d%7C1&sdata=lIjOQRZw7z7uih60evSH1aMBHx5SBONQQlEPeGW1Auw%3D&reserved=0>
Hope this helps.

Subject: [EP-tech] Installing under CentOS

Hello all!

So, further to my pokings and proddings around over issues installing EPrints under Ubuntu 16 last week, I've been talking to our ICT team here regarding the direction they want to head. Ultimately we'll be looking at migrating our EPrints hosting to a RHEL server so I am looking to set it up initially on a CentOS virtual machine for testing (mainly as we're going to have to do a lot of tearing down and rebuilding of setup and data due to some alterations that have been made on our EPrints install) and taking note of the process.

One of the things I'm finding, however, is that the instructions for setting EPrints up on CentOS don't stretch to version 7 and that there are a few different ones out there. I can't seem to find one that doesn't throw issues or warnings for me at some point so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas? I think my main issue is that the deb installer also brings down dependencies and sets up apache/mysql/php which I don't think the yum installation does (correct me if I'm wrong)?

Any advice would be grand!

Andrew
