installing WebME in Fedora 16

I got a new laptop today, and as I’ve still got work to do, I need to get the system up and running so it can install WebME.

Here’s a minimal instruction set for installing WebME on your Fedora computer.

As ‘root’, run this in a console:

yum install httpd mysql-server php php-gd php-mysql php-pear-Log php-xml svn zip unzip
echo " kvwebme" >> /etc/hosts

Then edit /etc/selinux/config, change “enabled” to “disabled” and restart your machine.

Login as your normal user, run this in the console:

mkdir ~/websites && cd ~/websites
svn co kv-webme
chmod 755 /home/kae

‘su’ to ‘root’ again. Add this to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:

NameVirtualHost *:80
<Directory /home/kae/websites>
AllowOverride All
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName kvwebme
DocumentRoot /home/kae/websites/kv-webme

And finally, in the console again:

service httpd start
service mysqld start
chkconfig –level 35 mysqld on
chkconfig –level 35 httpd on

That’s it – your system is set up. From that point, just go to http://kvwebme/ and follow the instructions from there!
