- Note: this howto has been last updated in late August 2010, and describe how DAViCal was handled at that time. It comes "as-is" and shouldn't be followed blindly but adjusted to your needs. Do not hesitate to update the guide.
Since 2008, an ebuild for davical is available in the Gentoo Sunrise overlay. See the instruction about how to set up the overlay here. You might need to mask a few packages using /etc/portage/package.mask such as higher version of PHP available from the overlay, etc.
If you use a
server profile, you'll have the mysql flag turned on by default (see:
eselect profile show).
DAViCal depends on postgres, so if you don't need MySQL for other purposes, make sure to disable the use flag either in
make.conf or in
/etc/portage/package.use so that installing DAViCal doesn't bring MySQL for nothing.
You'll need to enable both the postgres and apache2 use flag for PHP, and eventually, disable the mysql one, see the comment above. Apparently, you also need the pdo use flag, see PHP Config.
dev-lang/php -mysql postgres apache2 pdo
Again, if you have a server profile, the apache2 use flag will be one by default.
Then, you can start emerging stuff, DAViCal needs postgresql-server to work, but doesn't depends on it since you use another box as the postgresql server, so, you'll have to emerge it manually, if you plan to run everything locally.
emerge -av davical emerge -av postgresql-server # Optionnal
When everything is installed (davical, postgres*, php, apache2 etc), you can start configuration stuffs.
emerge --config when it's required, then start the postgresqsl-server if you run it locally, then locate the sqlscripts directory of davical (
qlist davical will list davical's files).
/etc/init.d/postgresql start # Run the create-database script as the postgres user: su postgres -c /usr/share/webapps/davical/0.9.9/sqlscripts/create-database.sh
Don't forget to note the admin password, if by mistake you forget to do so, just run the following command:
psql davical -c 'select username, password from usr;' -U postgres
create-database.sh you might have to append the following lines in
local davical davical_dba trust local davical davical_app trust # You must then reload postgres /etc/init.d/postgresql-server reload
If you used the
vhosts use flag of davical, you'll have to run
Now, you can create your apache2 vhost, mine looks like this (assuming example.net is my domain):
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName cal.example.net DirectoryIndex index.php index.html Alias /images/ /var/www/cal.example.net/htdocs/davical/images/ DocumentRoot /var/www/cal.example.net/htdocs/davical/ ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/cal.example.net_error.log CustomLog /var/log/apache2/cal.example.net.log combined <Directory /var/www/cal.example.net/htdocs/davical/> AllowOverride None Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> php_value include_path "/usr/share/php5/awl:/usr/share/webapps/davical/0.9.9/hostroot/inc/" </VirtualHost>
You can now continue with regular DAViCal configuration by creating and adjusting values of
/etc/davical/cal.example.net-conf.php where example.net is your domain, see the second link in the See Also section, or the above example :
<?php $c->domain_name = "cal.example.net"; $c->sysabbr = 'DAViCal'; $c->admin_email = 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; $c->system_name = "Zaphod's DAViCal Server"; $c->enable_row_linking = true; $c->pg_connect = 'dbname=davical port=5432 user=davical_app host=localhost'; ?>
