new trunk for webpac v2

1 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 like DBD::SQLite
54 CGI::Application
55 HTML::Template
56 HTML::FillInForm
57 SWISH::API
58 XML::Simple
59 Text::Iconv
60 TDB_File
61 HTML::Entities (part of HTML::Parser)
62
63 CPAN shell will also download some more modules to satisfy dependencies.
64
65
66 If you plan to use M$ Excel files for import (type=excel), you will need:
67
68 Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
69
70 If you plan to use import from MARC files you will also need
71
72 MARC
73
74
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 SWISH::API
103
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 3. You will need OpenIsis if you are using ISIS as an import format.
117 Currently, WebPAC uses OpenIsis 0.9.0 which *HAVE TO BE PATCHED*
118 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 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 http://openisis.org/Doc/GetIt
127
128 Then get patch for close from:
129 http://www.rot13.org/~dpavlin/projects/openisis-0.9.0-perl_close.diff
130
131 Unpack OpenIsis archive and apply patch -p0 to source tree.
132
133 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 cd perl
142 sudo make install
143
144 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 4. Edit global.conf and all2xml.conf to suit your needs. Comments inside
148 those files should help get you started.
149
150 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).
