That's right, on Redhat Enterprise and Centos, itís now just as easy to install Foswiki and its ~300 plugins as it is on Debian.
This means you can now manage your Enterprise Foswiki using the same package management tools as the rest of the operating system.
For example, I just installed a demo system with:
yum install foswiki-jhotdrawplugin foswiki-ldapcontrib foswiki-newuserplugin foswiki-glueplugin foswiki-ldapngplugin foswiki-calendarplugin foswiki-edittableplugin foswiki-interwikiplugin foswiki-renderlistplugin foswiki-smiliesplugin foswiki-tableplugin foswiki-directedgraphplugin
and when yum finished, I was able to browse to http://server/foswiki/
to see it up and running.
These packages are built by a script that downloads the latest packages from Extensions/
, generates an EPM manifest and then builds rpm packages Ė every night. I have not yet tested them with Redhat Enterprise 6 or Fedora.
To try it out, youíll need to add the EPEL
repository, and then this one to your yum config:
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm
and then run
To see what Foswiki extensions are available, run:
yum search foswiki
To install Foswiki, and some plugins:
yum install foswiki foswiki-workflowplugin foswiki-jscalendarcontrib foswiki-ldapcontrib
then browse to
to enable the plugin and configure settings.
