General Installation Procedure

The Packages

You will want to collect the RPMs for libawl-php and rscds from this site. In addition you will want some recent versions of:

  • Apache
  • PHP
  • PostgreSQL


You should follow the general installation procedure listed at http://rscds.sourceforge.net/installation.php though it would be appreciated if you note any specific considerations / corrections to that in the area below.



Installation on Fedora Core 6 using the Sourceforge RPMs is straightforward. It did fail to find pwgen, but was able to generate an admin password without it.

Installation on Fedora Core 5 was also without problems.


Installation on CentOS 4.4 wasn't entirely unproblematic. Most of the issues were to do with the default install of postgresql, and as such does not apply if postgresql is already installed and configured. Installing postgresql doesn't automatically include the postgres bindings for PHP, so they need to be separately installed. The default access permissions use ident to check for access, which fails when the user is 'general'; some manual changing of the pg_hba.conf file is required over and above what the installation manual suggests.
