Drupal – OpenPublishPosted: August 31, 2010
OpenPublish is build on Drupal and is my first foray into the world of Drupal.
I have not started with the core Drupal product as I need to quickly evaluate a CMS for an intranet project. This appears ideal for the this so here goes.
OpenPublish requires GD installed and configured
apt-get install php5-gd
You also need a MySql database configured before you can start the install, Install PHPMyAdmin and follow the instruction on getting it to work.
When it is on your system open the web site http://x.x.x.x//phpMyAdmin
logon on with your normal credetials and then choose database
Create new database
The download of OpenPublish at the time of writing was here.
Download and unzip and un-tar
copy the result into the /var/www forlder.
cp -r openpublish /var/www/openpublish
Some of the directories need write privileges for setup these are as follows:
chmod -R o+rw files
chmod o+rw default.settings.php
chmod o+rw settings.php
Some of these will need reseting back to a more securesetting when finished
Open a web browser and navigate to http://x.x.x.x/openpublish/install.php
Keep pressing next, it will check various things, as long as you follow the steps above you should not get any errors
Once installed you need to remove the write permissions to the settings files
chmod o-rw default.settings.php
chmod o-rw settings.php
