much improved installation instructions, especially
for Debian GNU/Linux distributions

1 dpavlin 248 INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
2 dpavlin 49
3     Feel free to contact me via e-mail to dpavlin@rot13.org if those instructions
4     don't work for you.
5    
6 dpavlin 132 1. You will need RDBMS (relational database management system) for index
7     files. PostgreSQL and SQLite are tested and supported.
8 dpavlin 49
9     Using any other database is quite easy, and involves editing of
10 dpavlin 132 dbi_* parameters in global.conf [global] section (which you want
11 dpavlin 49 to do anyway to specify user and password to connect to database).
12    
13 dpavlin 132 If you use PostgreSQL, you have to first create database:
14 dpavlin 49
15 dpavlin 52 $ createdb webpac
16 dpavlin 49 CREATE DATABASE
17    
18 dpavlin 132 If using SQLite, just specify file which SQLite will use (in global.conf)
19     like this:
20    
21     dbi_dbd=SQLite
22     dbi_dsn=dbname=/data/webpac/index.sqlite
23    
24 dpavlin 52 Tables for index(es) will be created automatically on first run. If you
25 dpavlin 49 change data for index often, you might want to drop and re-create database
26     to erase tables for indexes which are removed.
27    
28 dpavlin 133 SQLite can be quite faster than PostgreSQL (for reference see SQLite
29     site: http://www.hwaci.com/sw/sqlite/speed.html). Since WebPAC doesn't
30     use advanced database facilities of PostgreSQL you would probably be
31     better off with SQLite if you don't have PostgreSQL already installed.
32    
33 dpavlin 220 If you are using SQLite, there is no need to specify dbi_user or dbi_pass.
34     So, just leave them like this:
35    
36     dbi_user=""
37     dbi_passwd=""
38    
39     If you specify dbi_user and than try to index using different user,
40     you won't be able to write into database.
41    
42 dpavlin 52 2. Use CPAN shell to install modules used:
43 dpavlin 49
44 dpavlin 52 $ sudo cpan
45     cpan> install module_name
46    
47     Modules which are needed:
48    
49     Text::Unaccent version 1.02 or higher, you might need
50     to get this one from
51     http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/unac/
52     Config::IniFiles
53 dpavlin 248 DBD::Pg or some other DBD driver
54 dpavlin 52 CGI::Application
55     HTML::Pager
56     HTML::Template
57     HTML::FillInForm
58     SWISH
59     SWISH::Fork and of course, swish-e executable
60 dpavlin 132 XML::Simple
61 dpavlin 52
62     CPAN shell will also download some more modules to satisfy dependencies.
63    
64 dpavlin 248
65 dpavlin 52 If you plan to use M$ Excel files for import (type=excel), you will need:
66    
67     Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
68    
69 dpavlin 132 If you plan to use import from MARC files you will also need
70    
71     MARC
72    
73 dpavlin 248
74     2.1 Installation on Debian GNU/Linux
75    
76     You will need following packages to get started:
77    
78     perl
79     swish-e
80    
81     and all additional packages which are dependencies.
82    
83     You also don't have to install all CPAN modules manually. Just use
84     following Debian packages:
85    
86     libtext-unaccent-perl
87     libconfig-inifiles-perl
88     libdbd-pg-perl
89     libhtml-template-perl
90     libxml-simple-perl
91    
92     and install following packages by hand from CPAN
93     because they are not part of Debian distribution:
94    
95     CGI::Application
96     HTML::Pager
97     HTML::FillInForm
98     SWISH
99     SWISH::Fork
100    
101     and optionally some of those modules:
102    
103     Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
104     MARC
105    
106     For compilation of OpenIsis in next step, you will also need following
107     packages:
108    
109     make
110     gcc
111     libc-dev
112    
113 dpavlin 132 3. You will need OpenIsis if you are using ISIS as an import format.
114 dpavlin 133 Currently, WebPAC uses OpenIsis 0.9.0 which *HAVE TO BE PATCHED*
115 dpavlin 132 with special patch so that perl module OpenIsis.pm have close call
116     (because there is hard-limit of 32 ISIS files in OpenIsis.pm, and that
117     is too low for our use).
118    
119 dpavlin 248 You can do that yourself, or if you did checkout of our subversion repository
120     you will already have latest OpenIsis in webpac/openisis/ directory.
121    
122     If you want to do it yourself, first get OpenIsis from:
123 dpavlin 132 http://openisis.org/Doc/GetIt
124    
125 dpavlin 248 Then get patch for close from:
126 dpavlin 132 http://www.rot13.org/~dpavlin/projects/openisis-0.9.0-perl_close.diff
127    
128 dpavlin 248 Unpack OpenIsis archive and apply patch -p0 to source tree.
129 dpavlin 132
130 dpavlin 248 Eater way, now you got OpenIsis 0.9.0 with close support for perl. So,
131     first compile C parts:
132    
133     make
134    
135     And then compile perl module and install it:
136    
137     make perl
138 dpavlin 132 cd perl
139     sudo make install
140    
141 dpavlin 248 Since you need development tools on target machine to compile OpenIsis,
142     you might want to compile it on another machine and just copy perl module.
143    
144 dpavlin 132 4. edit global.conf and all2xml.conf to suit your needs. Comments inside
145     those files should help get you started.
