Revision as of 22:52, 10 October 2019

Prerequisites: Linux, PHP 7, MySQL-workalike, Apache.

This page will eventually need to include a lot more information, but for now the basic setup procedure is:

  • Clone the VbzCart Git repository at [git@gitlab.com:woozalia/VbzCart.git into a folder of your choice, which we'll call <vbz-base>.
  • Copy the <vbz-base>/config folder to a location outside of <vbz-base>.
    • We'll call this new location <local-config>.
    • My standard location for this is /home/vbz/site/config/vbzcart
  • Rename the <local-config>/examples folder to <local-config>/local.
  • Modify each file to match your local environment, according to instructions in each file.
  • Optional: modify files in <local-config>/portable as needed.
  • Install Ferreteria
  • Set up database and tables (instructions to be written)

Woozle's setup

Some specifics of how I usually set things up these days, giving examples from the dev instance I'm setting up as I type this (see User:Woozle/setups/vdomain for definitions):

Preparation

You'll need to have <$USER>'s account set up with an ssh key that can access GitLab. At least, I think that's the requirement. It might be more GitLab-project-specific.

Steps

1. Install Ferreteria (you can actually do this at any point, but it may be easier to do it first).

2. Run these commands in a terminal on your web server (you can skip mkdir wherever the folder already exists):

  • cd <$HOME>
  • su <$USER>
  • mkdir site
  • cd site
  • mkdir git
  • git clone git@gitlab.com:woozalia/VbzCart.git
  • cd ..
  • mkdir config
  • cd config
  • cp -R ../git/VbzCart/config vbzcart
  • mv vbzcart/examples vbzcart/local
  • ln -rs vbzcart/local/index.php ~/public_html/index.php

3. Modify the files in vbzcart/local as needed to match your local environment. (If you use the same structure I'm using here, index.php will not need modification.) This will require having a database set up so you can get the appropriate connection credentials to put in creds.php.

At this point, I think you should be able to point a browser at the domain and get something, even if it's only errors that you'll need to look at in order to figure out what's left to configure.
