User:Victor Grousset - tuxayo/Test Koha package install
(In a Debian 9 docker container)
To have straightforward wait to test if the packages from the master branch install well and if the resulting Koha instance works.
To quickly have an already installed Debian and boot fast and takes little resources. Which can be started over quickly. (useful for signoff or to try on various Debian versions or Koha versions)
At the expense of some common packages missing that will add some steps compared to a Debian install in a virtual machine or using remote server with a more standard Debian already installed.
Download the official Debian 9 image
docker pull debian:9
Start the container
docker run -d --name koha-install debian:9 sleep infinity
It's name will be "koha-install"
The container will continue running in the backgroud until you run the following:
stop the container
docker stop koha-install
Go into the container
docker exec -it koha-install /bin/bash
Add some packages due to minimal Debian image
apt update apt install dialog apt-utils wget gpg sudo vim -y
- sudo: to directly be able to paste commands from the installation instruction
- vim: personal convenience
Follow the install instructions until the part listed in the next section. Mainly because this is an install of the master version of Koha instead of the released ones.
Until "Set up package sources"
The whole section can be replaced by this one. So ignore (or just read):
- Set up package sources
- Pick which Koha version to follow
- Follow a suite: stable, oldstable …
- Follow a codename (version number): 19.11, 19.05, 18.11
echo "deb http://debian.koha-community.org/koha unstable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/koha.list wget -O- http://debian.koha-community.org/koha/gpg.asc | apt-key add - echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://apt.kohaaloha.com/koha-nightly dev main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/koha.list # ↑ No need for GPG keys, the packages aren't signed as of now.
Now go back on track with "Install Koha "
Until "Install the database"
Additional step: start MariaDB
service mysql start
Until "Configure the defaults"
Lazy way, don't setup a domain for Koha, as it's just to test a package install.
Just get rid of the warning.
# Get rid of Apache warnings echo "ServerName kohadevdock" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
