Tanaguru web application installation

This page describes the steps to follow to install Tanaguru since Version 3.0.0 (and further) from the binary files or from the sources. The sofware has been tested on 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) and 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr).

PLEASE ensure you meet all prerequisites for Tanaguru 3.x on Ubuntu.

Download tanaguru tarball and extract content

Retrieve the lastest version of Tanaguru and extract it on your file system.

wget http://download.tanaguru.org/Tanaguru/tanaguru-latest.tar.gz
tar xzf tanaguru-latest.tar.gz
cd tanaguru*

Create the database

Create an empty schema and a tanaguru user. Grant this tanaguru user permissions to create, update and delete objects for this schema. The charset of the database has to be set to "UTF-8".

GRANT USAGE ON * . * TO '$tgUser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '$tgPassword';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `$tgDatabase` . * TO '$tgUser'@'localhost';

where $tgUser is the tanaguru user, $tgPassword is the tanaguru user password, and $tgDatabase is the tanaguru database.

Execute the installation script

sudo ./install.sh --mysql-tg-db <Tanaguru_mysql_db> \ 
                  --mysql-tg-user <Tanaguru_mysql_user> \
                  --mysql-tg-passwd <Tanaguru_mysql_password> \
                  --tanaguru-url <Tanaguru_webapp_url> \
                  --tomcat-webapps <tomcat_webapps_directory> \
                  --tomcat-user <tomcat_unix_user> \
                  --tg-admin-email <Tanaguru_admin_email> \
                  --tg-admin-passwd <tanaguru_admin_password> \
                  --firefox-esr-path <path_to_Firefox_ESR> \
                  --display-port <Xorg_display_port>
