Installing iFolder 3.5 OSS Enterprise Server on an existing SLES9 SP2 Server.
Configuring iFolder 3.5 on a SLES9 box with NO OES after installing can be difficult because there is NO YAST tool.
The following are the notes I kept when installing iFolder 3.5 Enterprise Server on SLES 9 with NO OES installed.
If you're installing on a new box, just partition off the /var with a good amount of space for user data. In this case the SLES9 NO OES iFolder 3.5 will work right out of the box (so to speak)
- Download SLES 9 server build from www.ifolder.com.
- Install using this guide: http://www.ifolder.com/index.php/HowTo:Configure_iFolder_Enterprise_Server_on_SUSE_Platforms
HOWEVER, if you're installing on a existing server and you want to move the location of the DATADIR see below:
mv /var/lib/simias TO /yourdatastore/simias Assign apache user ownership of the /simias chown -R wwwrun:www /yourdatastore/simias edit /etc/simias/defaults.config <setting name="simiasdatadir" value="/yourdatastore/simias" /> STOP Apache2 START Apache2
Note about the Client:
MAKE SURE you use the 3.4 CLIENT or newer. The 3.2 client is designed to work with the OES iFolder3 server.
POST Install tasks:
Install the 3.4 or newer client for Windows or Linux. Log in and create the iFolder3 folders.
- create users: http://host/admin
- administer: http://host/admin
- user WebAccess: http://host/ifolder
Additionally if you access the ADMIN utility and look at the ifolders in the system you should notice the path points to where you moved your datastore ... if the ifolders are located in /var/lib/simias ...it didn't work.
- SLES 9 SP2
- iFolder 3.5 Server
- iFolder 3.5 Windows client
