1This document is a how-to for installing a Fedora scripts.mit.edu server.
2
3* Check out the scripts.mit.edu svn repository.
4
5* cd to server/fedora in the svn repository.
6
7* Run "make install-deps" to install various prereqs.
8
9* Use the Makefile to build the scripts.mit.edu-specific Fedora
10  packages.
11
12* Run "make suexec" and "make suexec-install" to overwrite
13  /usr/sbin/suexec with one that works. The one installed by the
14  newly-built Apache RPM is misconfigured.
15
16* Install the full list of RPMs that users expect to be on the
17  scripts.mit.edu servers.  See server/doc/rpm and
18  server/doc/rpm_snapshot.  (Note that this is only a snapshot, and not
19  all packages may in fact be in use.)
20
21* Install the full list of perl modules that users expect to be on the
22  scripts.mit.edu servers.  See server/doc/perl and
23  server/doc/perl_snapshot.
24
25* Install rails (versions 1.1.6 and 1.2.2).
26
27* Install the credentials (machine keytab, daemon.scripts keytab, SSL
28  certs).
29
30* Attempt to check out server/fedora/config/etc into /etc. This involves
31  individually renaming directories out of the way, copying over any
32  configuration files from SVN (and the .svn directory), and moving the
33  original directory back.
34
35  - Configure Apache.
36
37  - Try not to misconfigure PAM or SSH in the process.
38
39  - If you are setting up a test server, pay attention to
40  /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and do not bind scripts' IP address.
41  You will also need to modify /etc/ldap.conf and
42  /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhost_ldap.conf to use scripts.mit.edu instead of
43  localhost.
44
45* (Optional) Beat your head against a wall.
46
47* I recommend setting noatime for the root filesystem in /etc/fstab.
48
49* Possibly perform other steps that I've neglected to put in this
50  document.
