Tigermouse on Ubuntu 7.10
»18 Oct 2007
Ubuntu 7.10 code named Gutsy Gibbon is the first release that Tigermouse can be run on without editing config files. See the instruction below on how to set up your system.
You need to install web server, PHP5 and Smarty. Some PDO packages are useful, too. To do so open up a terminal window and type:
sudo apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-cli smarty php5-sqlite php5-sqlite3
Then you will have to enable Apache userdir module to allow home directories to be accessible via web. Type:
sudo a2enmod userdir sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
After web server restarts it is time to prepare your working environment. Go to your home directory and create folder named public_html. Then download Tigermouse and unpack it there. Open includes.php and change Smarty path to 'smarty/Smarty.class.php', save and exit. Finally, give write permission to specific folders. To do so, go back to your console window and type
cd ~/public_html/tigermouse/ chmod 1777 var/log chmod 1777 var/cache chmod 1777 var/smarty/compile chmod 1777 var/sqlite
Now you can type the following URL in your web browser:
replacing username with your system login name. Enjoy your newly installed Tigermouse!
During further development you will probably need some database related packages. For database connectivity PDO is recommended. You will find suitable PDO drivers in packages php5-mysql, or php5-pgsql depending on which database engine you choose.
