FAQ
Greetings,

I have helped host a few applications such as GLPI, OCSInventory, etc
etc. using the tarball method and untarring them in /var/www/htom
directory.

I have never done them though using yum.

I was trying to install Trac, Bugzilla etc using yum install method on
a Centos 6.2 box.

Somehow I am not able to see the respective pages say even using
http://localhost/trac or http://localhost/bugzilla

Now comes the elementary and stupid question:

Now where do these stuff get installed? they are not under /var/www/html

I did find some under /usr/share

Any pointers to instantiate them?

I am not good at understanding what that beast of yum does as to post
install script. Though I have created a mysql with CSV and blackhole
engines about a year back and as I did it for a client of the company
where I worked then and cannot have my grubby hands on that script.

Any help appreciated.

TIA

    If you're not sure of the names of the rpms that yum installed,
    read /var/log/yum.log to find out.

    Bugzilla instance has started working.

    Honestly, I don't know after what steps it started working as I was
    multi-tasking trying to get cups, samba and freenx among other things
    working all at the same time.

    Now onto get glassfish, bigbluebutton working.

    Any suggestion for a Chat server (preferably multi protocol)?

    Centos 6.2 of course

    Maybe Apache needed reatart?

    Now that you mention it, yes I did restart the apache

    Thanks for the suggestion

    Immediately after your mail, Les has suggested Openfire too
    http://www.igniterealtime.org/projects/openfire/

    I will try setting it up in case I have issues with BigBlueButton (for
    internal and external support activities).

    I set up an OpenFire server for internal use a long time ago (xmpp
    with group chat support) and never had any trouble with it, but that
    was on Centos 5.x. It is a mostly self-contained java package that
    shouldn't have many version dependencies other than using postgresql
    as a user db.

    Thanks, Les, for the suggestion.

    I will try that out.

    Yum only downloads and installs RPM files, so in general you will use
    the rpm command to get the details of the packages you installed.

    You can see all the files included in a package by using "rpm --query
    --list <package>". For apache web apps, the centos style is to place
    an include file in /etc/httpd/conf.d with the configuration for the
    app, but your apps might have done something different. Take a look
    at the include file and see if you need to configure something. There
    may be docs in /usr/share/doc/<packagename> explaining what you need
    to do.

    Sure. I will do that in about 13 hours and report back to this list.

    If you are lucky, the app will place a file with an obvious name in
    /etc/httpd/conf.d/ with some comments about what you have to change
    locally to set it up - perhaps even commented out lines that you can
    uncomment to active the defaults. If you are not so lucky you may
    have to understand the original app setup, then look at the rpm -q
    --list packagename output to figure out where the packager installed
    the parts. Even then you are generally better off with the yum
    installation because it will take care of any required dependencies.
