HowTo: FusionForge on Ubuntu

There are versions of FusionForge available for Fedora, and Ubuntu.

The Ubuntu version is closest to an out of the box production system, so for now we will configure it using Ubuntu.

Virtual Machines make this easy, and even if you are on a RHEL/CentOS/Fedora machine, you can create a VM and it works fine.

# Identify your distribution code name
cat /etc/lsb-release | grep CODENAME
# Verify that your distribution is supported

# Add fusionforge to site-software (i.e. karmic)
cat <EOF >>/etc/apt/sources.lst
deb karmic main
deb-src karmic main

# Install the archive key
wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

# Verify the packages are availbale
apt-cache pkgnames | grep fusionforge

# Install full version of fusionforge
apt-get update; apt-get install fusionforge-full

# (Use package maintainer versions of local files, when asked)

# Find admin password, remember it for initial site logins
grep admin_pass /etc/gforge/gforge.conf

# Set mailman initial list
cd /usr/lib/mailman/bin
./newlist mailman
# answer question, and copy alias names

# Paste mailman aliases before GForge additions
vi /etc/aliases
service mailman stop
service mailman start
