Important note about SQLite and dbi_user settings (in nutshell: leave them
blank)

1 beta-beta-beta INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
2
3 Feel free to contact me via e-mail to dpavlin@rot13.org if those instructions
4 don't work for you.
5
6 1. You will need RDBMS (relational database management system) for index
7 files. PostgreSQL and SQLite are tested and supported.
8
9 Using any other database is quite easy, and involves editing of
10 dbi_* parameters in global.conf [global] section (which you want
11 to do anyway to specify user and password to connect to database).
12
13 If you use PostgreSQL, you have to first create database:
14
15 $ createdb webpac
16 CREATE DATABASE
17
18 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 Tables for index(es) will be created automatically on first run. If you
25 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 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 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 2. Use CPAN shell to install modules used:
43
44 $ 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 DBD::Pg or some other DBD driver, you can also
54 use the one which came with distribution
55 (e.g. libdbd-pg-perl on Debian)
56 CGI::Application
57 HTML::Pager
58 HTML::Template
59 HTML::FillInForm
60 SWISH
61 SWISH::Fork and of course, swish-e executable
62 (e.g. swish-e package on Debian)
63 XML::Simple
64
65 CPAN shell will also download some more modules to satisfy dependencies.
66
67 If you plan to use M$ Excel files for import (type=excel), you will need:
68
69 Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
70
71 If you plan to use import from MARC files you will also need
72
73 MARC
74
75 3. You will need OpenIsis if you are using ISIS as an import format.
76 Currently, WebPAC uses OpenIsis 0.9.0 which *HAVE TO BE PATCHED*
77 with special patch so that perl module OpenIsis.pm have close call
78 (because there is hard-limit of 32 ISIS files in OpenIsis.pm, and that
79 is too low for our use).
80
81 Get OpenIsis from:
82 http://openisis.org/Doc/GetIt
83
84 Get patch for close from:
85 http://www.rot13.org/~dpavlin/projects/openisis-0.9.0-perl_close.diff
86
87 Unpack OpenIsis archive and apply patch -p0 to source tree. Type make, and
88 than:
89
90 cd perl
91 perl Makefile.PL
92 make
93 sudo make install
94
95 4. edit global.conf and all2xml.conf to suit your needs. Comments inside
96 those files should help get you started.
