Installing CoreMan from source

Install and configure Java JDK version 1.4.2 or higher.

Install and configure Apache Tomcat 5.0.28 or higher.

Install and configure MySQL server - version 4.1 or higher.

Install and configure Ant utility.

Create file storage directory (coremanroot) and copy the contents of init/coremanroot to that directory. Example location for coremanroot under Unix-like systems would be /var/lib/coreman.

Create new MySQL database and user for coreman. Import init/coreman_public.sql to that database.

Copy the file config/ to config/ and edit it according to your setup.

Compile and deploy CoreMan by running:

ant deploy

It is necessary to have JAVA_HOME shell variable pointing to a correct location of Java JDK. Also, javac and ant programs must be present in the path. On most systems you would probably need administrative privileges as well.

If everything went okay, and if Apache Tomcat server is started, you will be able to reach CoreMan at:

Default admin account user/pass: admin/admin
