This is an updated version of the post Install OpenPetra.Now 2014-05 on CentOS5.

Now we are installing on CentOS6, and using my own LBS repository. OpenPetra.Now is now using the unmodified Mono-opt packages.

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.

These are the instructions:

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

For Postgresql, have a look here:

Epel Repo (for lighttpd): see

For the mono-opt repository, have a look here:

rpm -Uhv
rpm -Uhv
cd /etc/yum.repos.d/

Now install the packages (this will automatically also install the packages mono-opt, 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

To test the server, connect to http://<yourhostname>/openpetra9000/serverSessionManager.asmx

Install OpenPetra.Now 2014-05 on CentOS6 64bit
