Contents 1 Needed Software 2 Getting the needed module from SVN 3 Setup of the Apache vHost for the Staging 4 Creating the database structure 5 Using the Staging Needed Software On the machine you use for this setup, you need to have installed a Linux/*BSD with a working Apache (1 or 2) with mod_php4. You will need at least the PHP4 modules pcre (for Perl compatible regular expressions) and xml (for the UTF-8 encoding). You will need PHP to be built with mysqli support. PHP5 is recommended. Getting the needed module from SVN You need to checkout the appropriate www module from our SVN, it's located in /trunk/www, most of the sites using Capacity are in /trunk/www/sites. The www module will be the documentroot of your apache, therefor keep care that the apache process can read this dir. To make use of Capacity you also need to checkout /trunk/www/media, which keeps its sources. Setup of the Apache vHost for the Staging You need to setup a vHost for the staging, here an example to have some vHost for your localhost running on port 8080. # listen on this port, too (mostly in file "listen.conf") Listen 8080 # staging vhost in a conf file <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8080> # set documentroot + 404 handler DocumentRoot <path_to_www> ErrorDocument 404 /media/404.php # depending on the default you might need to allow # access to the dir, so disable the following: #<Directory "<path_to_www>"> # Order allow,deny # Allow from all #</Directory> # you might want to catch the logs in separate files: #ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/kde.org-error_log #CustomLog /var/log/apache2/kde.org-access_log combined # php part php_value short_open_tag Off php_value register_globals No php_value allow_url_fopen Off php_value disable_functions system,exec,passthru,proc_open,shell_exec,popen,symlink php_value safe_mode On php_value include_path ".:<path to www>/media:<path_to_www>/media/includes" # enable .php, add .html here, for developer.kde.org AddType application/x-httpd-php .php </VirtualHost> Note Capacity doesn't work fine in subdirs of your documentroot, so it is recommended to setup a vHost for every kde site you intent to checkout. Alternatively, you may wish to add a symlink if your Capacity's media folder is elsewhere. Creating the database structure KDE.org uses MySQL to store database info. You will be required to first create a new database, and create a db_auth.inc file in Capacity's media/includes. Use the db_auth.inc.default as an example. Then you should run the following SQL to get yourself an empty database structure: http://websvn.kde.org/*checkout*/trunk/www/sql/www-kde-org-tables.sql To populate the database, you should run media/update_community_cronjob.php from Capacity. Using the Staging After restarting your Apache, you should have a running staging area on http://127.0.0.1:8080. You can now simply access and test all *.kde.org sites within this vhost. They all will behave like they are on their own domain, in their own vhost. If you checked out www.kde.org (/trunk/www/sites/www) it is now available under: http://127.0.0.1:8080/ Note You may wish to reduce PHP's recommended error reporting level for developing websites, as the site does have a lot of E_STRICT bugs Retrieved from "https://techbase.kde.org/index.php?title=Projects/kde.org/Staging_Setup&oldid=56303" Content is available under Creative Commons License SA 4.0 unless otherwise noted.
