This page will help you getting started improving the KDE websites.
Currently all pages are being ported to WordPress since it offers a full CMS.
Setting up kde.org
This was done with Arch Linux, PHP 7.3 and Apache 2.4. Expect minor change with another Linux distribution. Note in production, we still use php5, if you find bugs caused by php7, please reports this bugs in [bugs.kde.org bugs.kde.org].
- First we need to install and enable apache and php-fpm (See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Apache_HTTP_Server#Using_php-fpm_and_mod_proxy_fcgi). We also need to enable virtual host.
- In /var/www/, clone the following repositories:
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/www/sites/www/ kde.org git clone https://anongit.kde.org/websites/capacity cd kde.org git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:websites/kde-org-applications.git applications cd applications git clone email@example.com:websites/kde-org-applications-extractor.git
The resulting directory structure should now look like this:
├── capacity └── kde.org └── applications └── kde-org-applications-extractor
- Create the following vhost file in /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/kde.org.dom (Arch Linux)
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName localhost DocumentRoot /var/www/kde.org ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/kde.org-error.log CustomLog /var/log/httpd/kde.org.log combined <Directory /var/www/kde.org> AllowOverride All Require all granted FallbackResource /index.php DirectoryIndex index.php </Directory> </VirtualHost>
- Enable the newly created virtual host. In Debian/Ubuntu with a2ensite, in Arch Linux by adding the following line to the config file:
- In /etc/php/php.ini, update the
include_path = ".:/php/includes:/var/www/capacity/includes:"
- Restart the httpd and php-fpm services
systemctl restart httpd php-fpm
- Setup kde.org/applications. See KDE.org/applications.
If the instruction didn't work for you, and you weren't able to fix it. Please contact [kde-promo at kde dot org] and ask for help.
If the instruction didn't work for you, but you were able to fix it. Please add how you did it to this article.
You should have some things running on your machine already before starting. You will need:
- Apache2 and the usual modules (php such as libapache2-mod-php5)
This could for example look like:
apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mysql mysql-server
Make sure that it works by checking out localhost in a web browser.
You can modify the default setup to do the development in your home directory if it isn't already set up like that. Read up on apache if you want to. Some hints:
sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/default /etc/apache2/sites-available/kdesites sudo a2ensite kdesites
The easiest will be to have all kde sites in a subfolder structure, such as:
Thus point the apache setup to ~/public_html/kdesites
You can set up local subdomains in /etc/hosts
For new sites we use WordPress. You should get the latest WordPress release from: wordpress.org
Simply unzip/tar the download in a sub-folder. Get WordPress working. Next after testing that wordpress works, check out the Neverland theme and create a symlink:
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/websites/neverland cd neverland git checkout devel # currently the devel branch is the right one, this might change cd ../wordpress/wp-content/themes ln -s ../../../neverland/themes/wordpress/neverland/ .
Check that you have the Neverland theme in wordpress. The header of the page will look a bit strange until you configured a menu in wordpress. Log in as administrator and use Appearance -> Menus to set it up. Also select Screen Options -> Description to be able to edit the menu description (second line of the header).
