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

1 dpavlin 49 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 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     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 dpavlin 132 XML::Simple
64 dpavlin 52
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 dpavlin 132 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 dpavlin 133 Currently, WebPAC uses OpenIsis 0.9.0 which *HAVE TO BE PATCHED*
77 dpavlin 132 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.
