@justincarter just tagged and bagged 7.0.0 for release, and the new shiny installer is available for download here:
Before we start shouting from the roof-tops about how supergeil it all is, we need everyone to give the installer a workout.
A few things we’re looking for:
- does it work! we’ve tested it in our various environments but what about yours?
- does it make sense? its completely new.
- we’re shipping with three different install options; chelsea boots, fandango and barebones
It should work in any combination for the following environments:
CFML: railo express 4+/railo 4+/ACF 9+ (might work on ACF8?)
Database: mySQL 5+/MSSQL2005+/H2 (flat file database that ships with Railo)
Any feedback is welcome — comments on language, hints, etc. Anything that’s not obvious. We’re hoping this can be the easiest installer we’ve written.
- add redirect from
- add README with installation instructions; namely set up a blank database and datasource
Trying on Jelastic now
Tomcat / Railo 4.2
after dropping farcry into webroot,
then navigating to /farcry,
should it redirect to the install path (given nothing installed yet)?
Does this installer allow for multiple sites of one core?
Used to be called Advanced Install
Yep, it probably should. Plus a README on how to install.
Will add to the TODO list.
- barebones project on mySQL (maria DB 10)
I am sure I set the login password, but it remained as farcry
Will play around with it some more tomorrow
For folks who may want to comment but can’t see the installer, here’s a screenshot walkthrough.
STEP 1 Select a Skeleton
Installer scans the
./farcry/projects for projects to install. The
./farcry/plugins folder needs to have a copy of the plugins any particular
skeleton might require. A skeleton is just a project that has been exported, and includes sample data.
STEP 2: Set up the project
A quick flight check to make sure everything is good to go. Defaults to the settings in the
skeleton but the installer can nominate their own settings. Note the installer needs a blank database and datasource set up to proceed.
STEP 3: Run the installer
Final check before the installer runs. This step should show all changes the installer can expect on their system.
STEP 4: Install and confirm
Progress is reported via AJAX updates. If successful you can go straight to the webtop or web site. The sysadmin username/password will be shown.
The readme file needs an update as well
Ok - Started out fresh with the core and the skeleton in the download provided above. The result was however the same as reported in Problems installing FC on Railo/Linux/mySQL
The gods don’t want me to have FarCry running on this server. I will however prevail
