Install OpenPetra.Now 2014-05 on CentOS5   June 2nd, 2014

OpenPetra.Now is a tagged revision of the official OpenPetra, plus some patches which have not made it into the official OpenPetra yet. This includes a replacement of .Net remoting with https webservices, and a plugin system.

For an installation which involves upgrading from the old Petra 2.3 every night, I had to install OpenPetra.Now on a CentOS5 based system.

These are the instructions:

Install the Epel repository, the Postgresql repository and my OpenPetra repository.

If you have a 64 bit system, the links will be different.

For Postgresql, have a look here: http://yum.postgresql.org/

For the mono-openpetra repository, have a look here:
http://software.opensuse.org/download/package?project=home:tpokorra:openpetra&package=mono-openpetra

rpm -Uhv http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uhv http://yum.postgresql.org/9.2/redhat/rhel-5-i386/pgdg-centos92-9.2-6.noarch.rpm
cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:tpokorra:openpetra/CentOS_CentOS-5/home:tpokorra:openpetra.repo

Now install the packages (this will automatically also install the packages mono-openpetra, postgresql92, lighttpd and some other dependencies):

yum install openpetranow-server

Now configure the OpenPetra server, and start it:

/etc/init.d/openpetra-server init
chkconfig openpetra-server on
