NAME

Catalyst::Manual::Installation::CentOS4 - Catalyst Installation on CentOS 4

DESCRIPTION

This document provides directions on how to install CentOS 4 (a rebuild of RedHat Enterprise 4) and then install Catalyst.

If you already have a functioning install of CentOS, RHEL, or a comparable Linux OS, you should be able to skip this first section and go straight to the INSTALL CATALYST section.

NOTE: You might want to consult the latest version of this document. It is available at: http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/repos/Catalyst/trunk/Catalyst-Runtime/lib/Catalyst/Manual/Installation/CentOS4.pod

INSTALL CENTOS

These directions are written for CentOS 4.3 on an i386 machine; however, you can substitute other versions as they become available.

  • Go to http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/4/isos/i386/ and click the nearest mirror.

  • Download CentOS-4.3-i386-bin1of4.iso (you only need the first disk).

  • Burn the .iso to CD.

  • Insert the CD into your machine and power it up.

  • Hit Enter at the boot: prompt.

  • CD media test: you can either select OK or Skip depending on whether or not you trust your burn.

  • The installation GUI should start. Click next at the "Welcome to CentOS-4" screen.

  • Select a language and click Next.

  • Select a keyboard configuration and click Next.

  • Select Custom for the installation type and click Next.

  • Leave Automatically partition selected on the Disk Partitioning Setup and click Next.

  • Uncheck Review (and modify if needed) the partitions created, but leave the rest of the default settings on the Automatic Partitioning screen. Then click Next.

  • Click Yes at the Are you sure you want to do this? warning.

  • Click Next on the Boot Loader Configuration screen.

  • Update the Network Configuration screen as necessary and click Next.

  • Check Remote Login (SSH) and click Next on the Firewall Configuration screen.

  • Select additional languages as necessary. Click Next.

  • Select the appropriate time zone and click Next.

  • Enter a root password and click Next.

  • Scroll to the bottom of the Package Group Selection screen and check Minimal (the last option). Click Next.

  • Click Next at the About to Install screen.

  • The installation will prepare the hard drive and then install the required rpm packages.

  • Once the installation completes, remove the CD and click Reboot.

  • Type vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables and add the following line as the third to last line of the file (above the -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited line):

        -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 3000 -j ACCEPT

    This will allow Catalyst to make use of port 3000 (the default for the development server).

    Type service iptables restart to restart the iptables firewall using the updated configuration.

  • Type yum -y update to retrieve the latest patches.

INSTALL CATALYST

  • Type yum -y install gcc expat-devel sqlite3 to install several packages used by Catalyst.

  • Type the following:

        perl -MCPAN -e shell
        
        ...
        
        Are you ready for manual configuration? [yes] n
        
        ...
        
        cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7601)
        ReadLine support available (try 'install Bundle::CPAN')
            
        cpan> force install Module::Build
        
        ...
        
        cpan> quit
  • Type wget http://www.shadowcatsystems.co.uk/static/cat-install to retrieve a copy of the cat-install script.

  • Type vi cat-install to open the installer script, then insert the following lines at the bottom of the file (after the install('Catalyst'); line):

        install('Catalyst::Devel');
        install('ExtUtils::ParseXS');
        install('Digest::SHA1');
        install('Digest::SHA');
        install('Class::DBI');
        install('DBIx::Class');
        install('DBIx::Class::HTMLWidget');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::Session');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State::Cookie');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::Session::Store::FastMmap');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::Authorization::ACL');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::Authorization::Roles');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Store::DBIC');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::DefaultEnd');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::StackTrace');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::Dumper');
        install('Catalyst::Plugin::HTML::Widget');
        install('Catalyst::Model::DBIC::Schema');
        install('Catalyst::View::TT');
        install('Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst');
        install('Test::Pod');
        install('Test::Pod::Coverage');
  • Type perl cat-install. It will take a while to complete.

You should now have a functioning Catalyst installation with the modules and plugins required to run the Catalyst tutorial.
