On the machine you use for this setup, you need to have installed a Linux/*BSD with a working Apache (1 or 2) with mod_php4. You will need at least the PHP4 modules pcre (for Perl compatible regular expressions) and xml (for the UTF-8 encoding). PHP5 is recommended.
Getting the needed module from SVN
You need to checkout the appropriate www module from our SVN, it's located in /trunk/www, most of the sites using Capacity are in /trunk/www/sites. The www module will be the documentroot of your apache, therefor keep care that the apache process can read this dir.
To make use of Capacity you also need to checkout /trunk/www/media, which keeps its sources.
Setup of the Apache vHost for the Staging
You need to setup a vHost for the staging, here an example to have some vHost for your localhost running on port 8080.
# listen on this port, too (mostly in file "listen.conf") Listen 8080 # staging vhost in a conf file <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8080> # set documentroot + 404 handler DocumentRoot <path_to_www> ErrorDocument 404 /media/404.php
# depending on the default you might need to allow # access to the dir, so disable the following: #<Directory "<path_to_www>"> # Order allow,deny # Allow from all #</Directory>
# you might want to catch the logs in separate files: #ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/kde.org-error_log #CustomLog /var/log/apache2/kde.org-access_log combined
# php part php_value short_open_tag Off php_value register_globals No php_value allow_url_fopen Off php_value disable_functions system,exec,passthru,proc_open,shell_exec,popen,symlink php_value safe_mode On php_value include_path ".:<path_to_www>/media/includes" # enable .php, add .html here, for developer.kde.org AddType application/x-httpd-php .php </VirtualHost>
Using the Staging
After restarting your Apache, you should have a running staging area on http://127.0.0.1:8080. You can now simply access and test all *.kde.org sites within this vhost. They all will behave like they are on their own domain, in their own vhost.
If you checked out www.kde.org (/trunk/www/sites/www) it is now available under:
