From MIKE2.0 Methodology
-> You are here: Installing omCollab
Installing from the omCollab Package
Here is the approach to very quickly install omCollab. This installation process allows you to get a local or development environment up and ready to go in a matter of minutes.
Example URLs assume you unzipped omCollab in to xampp/htdocs/omCollab and you are not using virtual hosts
Example to go to phpmyadmin: http://localhost/phpmyadmin/
Example to go to phpmyadmin: http://localhost/omCollab/
That’s it. You’re ready to go – with an out of the box solution for advanced collaboration!
There are a few minor issues with the current install, but you will be able to get everything running. We will release a patched version in the next day or 2.
Common install issues due to platform configuration:
The Blogs module may throw an error in current package. If so:
Curl not enabled
If you see something like Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in C:\xampp\htdocs\omCollab\w\extensions\APIQueryExtension\APIQueryExtension.php on line 154
Do the following:
To enable allow_url_fopen in php.ini
If you find page block in local deployment when you use "http://localhost" to access omcollab. Please open the hosts file.
Open the file with notepad and you will see 2 entries for local host like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost ::1 localhost
Just delete the second one so you only have
Installation and configuration of omForums (based on phpBB) is not as smooth yet as for the other applications.
Installing from svn
You can access the latest code for omCollab by browsing to http://waterloo.openmethodology.org/trac/omcollab/. This will take you to the trac interface which we use for software release management. If you do not you have a subversion client or want more than the code itself, use this link.
The url to directly connect via a subversion client is http://waterloo.openmethodology.org/svn/omcollab. Our development team is using eclipse. Installation and user guides on eclipse can be found on the eclipse site; we've also posted a brief set of instructions on how to install the software.
We'll soon be posting more detailed instructions around how this works, our development model and recommeded methods for intergration.
Scripts have been provided for migrating from prior versions of omCollab
DB Migration Scripts
For migrations between versions where a DB upgrade is required, scripts are provided in the Installation Resources directory.
Upgrade to 1.100.0
You need to use manual installation method for upgrading omcollab from 1.010.x to 1.100.0.
cd wiki\maintenance php update.php --aconf ..\AdminSettings.php
cd wiki/maintenance php update.php --aconf ../AdminSettings.php
Now your omcollab is upgraded to 1.100.0.
Upgrade to 1.100.3
In addition to normal deployment process, omwiki_migration_11002_11003.sql is provided to upgrade wiki database from 1.100.1 or 1.100.2 to 1.100.3. You will find this file in _InstallationResources directory. Maybe you have to do some modification on this script to match the DB table prefix.
Note: build.php and omconfig.php are updated in this version.
Upgrade to 1.200.5
If you don’t see any data in home page, please access the url http://your_domain/home/home_cache_cron.php?key=enter_your_key .The value of the key is configurable in the omconfig.php.
And you also need to do:
#update cache of omcollab 30 * * * * /usr/bin/curl -s -o /dev/null http://your_domain/home/home_cache_cron.php?key=enter_your_key
