How to install Post-Nuke "Rogue" release – on a Mitel SME Server version 5


1.0 – December 17, 2001

J-L Boers  

You want Post-Nuke, a PHP content management solution, for your website hosted on an Mitel SME Server version 5.

You are running Mitel SME 5. This How-To tested with SME ver. 5 with no updates, ver. 5 update2 and ver. 5 update3 applied.
You downloaded the Post-Nuke file to your E-Smith server from the site.

Step 1: (For installation in the primary i-bay)
Decide if you want to use PHP-Nuke on your primary i-bay directory or on another i-bay.
If primary i-bay is your choice, go to step 3.

Step 1a: (For installation in another i-bay)
Create a new i-bay in e-smith-manager. Set the new i-bay with full permissions from the entire internet - no password. Set Execution of dynamic content to enabled,  then proceed to Step 2.

Step 2: (For installation in another i-bay)
Setup a new virtual domain using the e-smith-manager to use that i-bay

Step 3:
Login to your e-smith console as root. You can do this on the server itself by pressing ALT-F2 to switch to a console screen or you can do it remotely via a SSH/Telnet session from a remote machine.

Step 4:
Create the new database in mysql."Rogue" is the name of the database we will create just for Post-Nuke.

# mysqladmin CREATE Rogue
(NOTE: You can call the database anything you like. Just remember the change you made)

You can verify at this point that you created the new database by typing in the command:

# mysqlshow

You should see "Rogue" as one of the databases listed.

Step 5:
Make a user other than root to handle the "Rogue" database. You can do it with the user "root" however it is smarter to have another user for this function. In this example we will make a new user called "nuke". You should log into mysql as user "root". The root password can be found in the file /root/.my.conf . Jot down this password as you may need it to log in to mysql. Note: The password is really long and in located under the [client] section of .my.cnf .

# mysql -u root

You will now be at a mysql prompt.
Example: mysql> _

Add the new user by entering the grant statement at the mysql prompt as follows:

mysql> grant all on Rogue.* to nuke@localhost identified by 'password_for_nuke';
(NOTE: You can call the user anything you like. In this case nuke@localhost. Just remember the change you made)

Type quit to exit mysql

Verify the new user account by logging back into mysql as follows:

# mysql --user=nuke --password=password_for_nuke

If it took, and you got to a mysql> prompt, you successfully made the new user. Exit mysql by typing  quit .

Step 6:
Copy the Post-Nuke file you downloaded to the /home/e-smith/files/primary/html directory.
or.. /home/e-smith/files/ibays/ibay_you_created/html (if installing to an i-bay)
Note that you will need to move all files and directories up two levels.

# cd /home/e-smith/files/primary/html
#cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/ibay_you_created/html

# cp /path/to/ Rogue_Seven_Oh_.tar.gz . (that's filename.tar.gz - space - period )

# tar -xzvf Rogue_Seven_Oh_.tar.gz

#cd /home/e-smith/files/primary/html/Rogue/html
# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/ibay_you_created/html/Rogue/html

# mv * ../..

# cd ../..

Step 7:
You should now be in the top-level ../html directory. Change the ownership and permissions on config.php

# chown www config.php

# chmod 666 config.*    (this gets the config-old.php file as well)

Step 8:

# pico config.php

Edit the config.php file and change the following fields:

dbuname <-- in our example this is user nuke
dbpassword <-- the password you made for user nuke
dbname <-- in our example, the database name is Rogue

After you are done editing the fields, press Ctrl-X to exit pico. You will be prompted to save the file.

Step 9:
Move on to the installation via a web browser.
Point a browser to:

You should now have the installation web page show up in your browser. Follow the prompts and enter the relevant info as required. When you get to the section “New Install”  where you press the "Start" button, make sure you do not check the checkbox to make the database. You already did this earlier.

Step 10:
You should now have a running site. Click on the link “ Go to your PostNuke site “

Here you can start to configure your site

Step 11:
For security purposes, you should delete the install.php file or alternatively chmod 0 it so you can get it later if needed.

# rm install.php
# chmod 0 install.php


You're Done!
