1 dpavlin 255 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 255 DBD::Pg or some other DBD driver like DBD::SQLite
54 dpavlin 52 CGI::Application
55     HTML::Template
56     HTML::FillInForm
57 dpavlin 304 SWISH::API
58 dpavlin 132 XML::Simple
59 dpavlin 255 Text::Iconv
60     TDB_File
61     HTML::Entities (part of HTML::Parser)
62 dpavlin 52
63     CPAN shell will also download some more modules to satisfy dependencies.
64    
65 dpavlin 255
66 dpavlin 52 If you plan to use M$ Excel files for import (type=excel), you will need:
67    
68     Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
69    
70 dpavlin 132 If you plan to use import from MARC files you will also need
71    
72     MARC
73    
74 dpavlin 255
75     2.1 Installation on Debian GNU/Linux
76    
77     You will need following packages to get started:
78    
79     perl
80     swish-e
81    
82     and all additional packages which are dependencies.
83    
84     You also don't have to install all CPAN modules manually. Just use
85     following Debian packages:
86    
87     libtext-unaccent-perl
88     libconfig-inifiles-perl
89     libdbd-pg-perl or some other DBD driver
90     libdbd-sqlite-perl like DBD::SQLite
91     libhtml-template-perl
92     libxml-simple-perl
93     libtext-iconv-perl
94     tdb-dev (for TDB_File module later)
95     libhtml-parser-perl
96    
97     and install following packages by hand from CPAN
98     because they are not part of Debian distribution:
99    
100     CGI::Application
101     HTML::FillInForm
102 dpavlin 304 SWISH::API
103 dpavlin 255
104     and optionally some of those modules:
105    
106     Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
107     MARC
108    
109     For compilation of OpenIsis in next step, you will also need following
110     packages:
111    
112     make
113     gcc
114     libc-dev
115    
116 dpavlin 132 3. You will need OpenIsis if you are using ISIS as an import format.
117 dpavlin 133 Currently, WebPAC uses OpenIsis 0.9.0 which *HAVE TO BE PATCHED*
118 dpavlin 132 with special patch so that perl module OpenIsis.pm have close call
119     (because there is hard-limit of 32 ISIS files in OpenIsis.pm, and that
120     is too low for our use).
121    
122 dpavlin 255 You can do that yourself, or if you did checkout of our subversion repository
123     you will already have latest OpenIsis in webpac/openisis/ directory.
124    
125     If you want to do it yourself, first get OpenIsis from:
126 dpavlin 132 http://openisis.org/Doc/GetIt
127    
128 dpavlin 255 Then get patch for close from:
129 dpavlin 132 http://www.rot13.org/~dpavlin/projects/openisis-0.9.0-perl_close.diff
130    
131 dpavlin 255 Unpack OpenIsis archive and apply patch -p0 to source tree.
132 dpavlin 132
133 dpavlin 255 Eater way, now you got OpenIsis 0.9.0 with close support for perl. So,
134     first compile C parts:
135    
136     make
137    
138     And then compile perl module and install it:
139    
140     make perl
141 dpavlin 132 cd perl
142     sudo make install
143    
144 dpavlin 255 Since you need development tools on target machine to compile OpenIsis,
145     you might want to compile it on another machine and just copy perl module.
146    
147 dpavlin 275 4. Edit global.conf and all2xml.conf to suit your needs. Comments inside
148 dpavlin 132 those files should help get you started.
149    
150 dpavlin 275 5. All perl code will use locale to do sorting. That also include indexes
151     which, while being RDBMS-based, also use perl sorting (because each
152     entry has ordinal number created by perl). So, be sure that LC_COLLATE
153     environment variable is configured for your locale (which also has to
154     be enabled, check dpkg-reconfigure locales if you are using Debian).
